Clean and Jerks

If you enjoy Saturday’s Oly Lifting class, come in on Wednesdays at 5 pm!  In our new Wednesday Oly class, we are learning detailed techniques on how to improve all the Olympic lifts we do in CrossFit.   It’s truly a time for polishing and meticulously bettering our lifts.  This week we will be focusing on the clean and jerk.
