The Olympic lifts consist of the clean & jerk and the snatch. These two lifts are the most technical lifts that CrossFitters must perform. It is our belief that improved capacity in the Olympic lifts will improve performance in nearly every other physical endeavor one may encounter in life. They have a unique ability to train an athlete to generate and apply large amounts of force while simultaneously building strength, speed, power, coordination, balance, and flexibility. These are valuable traits for any athlete. We offer detailed instruction by multiple USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sports Performance coaches.
In the sport of powerlifting the goal is simple: lift as much weight as possible. Powerlifting consists of three core lifts: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. The squat and the deadlift are key two foundational movements in CrossFit. Along with the bench press, building a strong foundation in these lifts, will improve one’s overall physical strength, mental strength, and ability to master other key movements for CrossFit, Olympic lifting, and general physical preparedness.
Butte Barbell Club offers a structured powerlifting program – Power Hour+ – to help athletes improve their strength and maximize their potential in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. The Power Hour + programming includes the core lifts, speed work and dynamic effort, accessory strength, and conditioning intervals.
All of our powerlifting coaches are USA Powerlifting (USAPL) club coach certified.
