Barbell Club


Interested in getting stronger?

Are you a CrossFitter who wants to make strength gains? Are you a weightlifter or powerlifting who doesn’t need as much conditioning as our traditional CrossFit program?

Then, Barbell Club is for YOU!

CrossFit Local’s Barbell Club (BBC) combines Catalyst Athletics Olympic lifting with Wendler’s 531 strength program to give you barbell training with expert feedback on technique. Programmed and led by Coaches Shea and Jackie, BBC will end each session with a short, heavy conditioning workout to maximize power output.

Barbell club runs in hour long sessions starting promptly at 7 AM on Wednesdays and 6 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Wednesdays will focus more on power lifting (squats, presses, deadlifts) while Tuesdays and Thursdays will focus more on Olympic lifting (snatches, cleans, jerks). Come already warmed up, mobilized and ready to lift.

Workouts are usually less than 10 minutes, interval-based (because they allow you to work at a higher power output when you are working) and often team-based, because we like each other. Of course, the workouts use barbells.

Here are a couple examples:bbc

As many rounds as possible in 10 minutes:
2 partners alternate movements
15m Overhead walking lunge with 45# bumper plate
10 push press with 45# dumbbells
10 pull-ups

6 rounds for calories:
1 minute row for calories
1 minute 15 Russian kettlebell swing with 2 pood
