What is Barbell Club?
3 Types of Barbell Club Athletes
- Athletes whose goal is to focus entirely on either Olympic weightlifting or Powerlifting. These athletes will likely also join the West Metro Barbell Team and compete in their respective sports. A program for these athletes will likely not include any CrossFit.
- Athletes whose goal is to focus more on the barbell lifts with strength and technique as a priority, but not give up CrossFit 100%. These athletes will still have CrossFit workouts in their program but they will not be the priority.
- Athletes whose goal is to improve their technical proficiency in the barbell lifts, most likely primarily in the Olympic lifts. These athletes still want CrossFit to be their main priority but want to improve barbell technique to aid the CrossFit ability. A program for these athletes will likely only have them coming to the coached Barbell Club classes and still CrossFitting 3-5 days each week.
Regardless of which type of Barbell Club athlete you are, our goal is to aid you in your goals. All Barbell Club athletes have access to do their program anytime the gym is open. Because of this, many times Barbell Club athletes will be lifting without direct coaching. As such, to join the Barbell Club athletes must have a minimum of 3 months of CrossFit experience or work privately with a coach until ready to lift unsupervised.
