Spend the day improving your performance on the clean and jerk and the snatch with Mark Rippetoe and Nick Delgadillo.
The camp will focus on good execution of the lifts according to the principles outlined in Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training, the practical aspects of performing the lifts, and how to progress from the power variants used in novice programs to the squat clean, the jerk, and the squat snatch. Participants will spend lots of time on the platform receiving coaching and instruction on the Olympic lifts in a small group setting led by Rip.
Attendance will be capped at twelve to allow for individualized instruction.
Who is this Camp For?
This camp is intended for lifters who are currently training the power clean and have no limitations on being able to perform the Olympic lifts or lifters who already have experience with the Olympic lifts. If you want to learn the Olympic lifts for the first time after having trained the power clean, you’re welcome at this camp, but lifters who are unable to rack a clean due to injuries or anatomical issues, or who are unable to jump or otherwise perform explosive movements should not sign up.
What to Bring
Proper weightlifting shoes that include a non-compressible sole and metatarsal strap are required. If participants use weightlifting belts, they are encouraged to bring them. You are also encouraged to wear a 100% cotton shirt if possible or avoid wearing any slick/moisture wicking material. Please also wear knee-high socks, or sweat pants to allow the barbell to contact the shins without causing abrasions.
