Oly Lifting Workshop with Christine Girard

This weekend, six of our box members attended an Olympic lifting workshop as hosted by Christine Girard, 2012 Canadian Bronze medalist in Olympic Weight lifting (London 2012).  We came to improve our Snatch as well as Clean and Jerk technique. The lessons and small tips we learned from Christine were invaluable for improving these not so simple movements. All of the participants got an opportunity to interact and be critiqued on a 1:1 basis with Christine. Despite being a full day workshop, we all walked away with new knowledge.  So, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been lifting for – whether 1 month or 18 years, there is always room for improvement. In fact, from a few pointers and adjustments, Coach Vik was able to PR his Snatch!! 205 pounds solid!!

 

Christine Girard has been a real inspiration to us all and we would definitely recommend future Olympic lifting workshops with her in the future!!

 

Stay tuned for more Oly lifting workshop opportunities in the community!
