CrossFit Lynchburg Weightlifting – Cycle 2, Week 5

By July 7, 2015No Comments

Week five of cycle two.  The purpose of this work is to give CrossFit Lynchburg athletes more practice in the snatch and clean & Jerk, to work on things they won’t get to in class or to work on things more.  Think of weightlifting the way you would golf – so many things to work on that require constant practice.

Before each session get warmed up with a barbell and practice positions of the lifts.  Here’s some suggestions:
