Beginners club

Weightlifting Beginners club is a 1h session run once a week that teaches beginners a general overview of Olympic weightlifting (Snatch and Clean and Jerk) so that they can perform the movements safely. We focus on breaking down the movement to easily understand the technique and highlight any weaknesses before building up to the full technique.

As a general rule, members in this club will take 2 months learning the techniques and then move onto a set programme to be completed to finalise beginners club. This is flexible as people learn at different rates and we do not want to rush people in their learning phase. The aim of the beginners club is for people to learn basic techniques in an enjoyable and manageable way.
