Olympic Weightlifting Seminar at CrossFit West Santa Cruz

There is a weightlifting seminar at CF Santa Cruz West this Saturday, Dec. 10. I will be in the east bay for the later part of the day, so I can’t attend. MDSoF will provide a $100 scholarship to one person if they take some videos and make copies of any handouts available.

Here is more from Sam Redetsky of CF Santa Cruz West:

The seminar will run from 9-4 with a break for lunch. It will cover, in detail, the snatch and clean & jerk, as well as the Olympic squat and programming. All three teachers will lift themselves during the lunch break. I am particularly excited about watching these guys lift. Pat squats over 600 pounds and Ian clean and jerks well over double bodyweight, so it should be pretty spectacular. There will be plenty of time for all of us to lift heavy and a Q and A session at the end of the day.

I have been to a couple other seminars led by Billy and Ian, as well as a bunch of other weightlifting seminars and certs, and I can honestly that say that Billy and Ian’s seminar is my favorite so far. Not only do they provide excellent instruction on an individual basis (most people PR at the seminar), but their teaching progressions are outstanding and unique.

There are still spaces available for anyone who is interested. The weather in Santa Cruz has been crisp and clear. Come on join us for the seminar, hit some big lifts, learn a lot, and then head downtown for dinner. If you cannot make it, I would really appreciate it if you would remind your members about it.
