Tidal York Mills (B-1919 Leslie St., Toronto, ON) is hosting two upcoming CrossFit Weightlifting courses. The Level 1 course will be May 25 & 26, and the Level 2 course will be June 22 & 23.
CrossFit Weightlifting Level 1 (May 25-26, 2019)
At the CrossFit Weightlifting Level 1 course, two days are spent detailing each lift (Snatch on Day 1, Clean and Jerk on Day 2). The focus is on participants experiencing the basic positions and learning the foundational teaching points for instructing others to achieve them. The snatch and clean and jerk bring speed, power, coordination, agility, accuracy and balance to training and are indispensable to CrossFit programming and developing a well-rounded athlete.
CrossFit Weightlifting Level 2
The CrossFit Specialty Course: Weightlifting Level 2 builds on the fundamental principles that are explored in the CrossFit Weightlifting Specialty Course. This rigorous advanced course will enable participants to provide richer detail in teaching the Olympic lifts, including improved ability to see and correct errors.
Through a mix of lectures and practical breakouts, participants gain proficiency in identifying “root causes” of both successful and failed lifts. They will use methods such as movement assessment protocols, strength ratios and case study, as well as video and real-time technical analysis of each other.
In addition, participants enhance their coach’s “tool kit” with specific programming, cues, drills and remedies. Graduates of the Level 2 Course will feel confident in their ability to advance weightlifting performance at the recreational and competitive levels for both groups and individuals.
