North Durham Barbell Club

North Durham Barbell Club

North Durham’s Barbell Club works to create proficiency in Olympic lifting no matter your age, experience, or physical capabilities. Athletes will work in small groups (6-8) per lifting cycle (8 weeks) to develop their technique and strength in the Clean and Jerk as well as the Snatch. We encourage anyone to come by and check out the Barbell Club.

The first couple weeks will focus on the preliminary progressions of the Clean & Jerk and Snatch. Each week we will add a new element to these progressions to create sound movement patterns when performing Olympic lifts. For example, athletes will begin with learning how to do proper lift-offs, finding their power position, overhead squats, and so forth prior to moving into specific snatch and clean & jerk work.

What you can expect:

  • Small group classes
  • Attentive coaching    
  • Strength progression
  • Technique refinement
  • Fun atmosphere

North Durham’s Barbell Club will be held Tuesdays & Thursdays from 6-730PM and Saturdays from 12-130PM. Our first lifting cycle will begin Tuesday, February 5th and last until Saturday, April 6th.

The cost of the training cycle is $399. If you are currently a NDCF athlete and want to join the barbell club, you will pay the training cycle fee and you may attend unlimited NDCF classes over the 8 weeks.
