Only one more WOD and the 2014 Open is over! So, what happens next?
We’re going to go into a reset mode in the second week of April. Part of this reset will be implementing our Barbell Basics Program . Barbell Basics will both be a class offering that focuses solely on Olympic Weightlifting as well as a certification program. You will not be allowed to make max effort attempts on lifts until you have been certified in the specific lift.
Starting tomorrow we are going to begin a two-week grace period to allow everyone the opportunity to get certified before our reset phase. You’ll have at least two if not more chances to become certified on each of the four lifts before you’ll see a 1RM come up for the lift.
We’re not looking for absolute perfection in the lifts. As coaches we want to make sure you can safely perform the lift without any major flaws before giving you a green light to max. To phrase it another way: quarter squats and sumo-stance snatches are not going to fly. Not that every have.
