Our Approach

Armor weightlifting classes offer a methodical approach to developing explosive strength in the snatch and the clean and jerk. Through this process, you will get stronger, develop explosive power, and increase your technical prowess at the Olympic lifts. Our lifting classes are coached by experienced trainers in a fun and competitive environment.


Why Olympic Weightlifting?

Olympic weightlifting is one of the best ways to build strength, speed, and explosive power. You will also see improvement in your balance, flexibility, and range of motion, leading to enhanced athletic performance. The snatch and the clean and jerk, the two Olympic lifts, are extremely complex and provide a full-body workout. Progressive strength exercises, bodyweight training, core work, and plyometrics are all important for mastering the two Olympic lifts. Incorporate them into your routine to develop your strength and explosive power. This sport relies heavily on compound movements that can transform your body and make you a better athlete. Whether you’re a bodybuilder, basketball player, or rugby player, you can reap the benefits.


What to Expect

Our classes include people of all ages and skill levels. Be prepared to have fun, and dig deep into the mechanics of the snatch and the clean and jerk. Are you interested in checking out Olympic lifting for the first time? We would love to introduce you to the sport. You will start with light weights and focus on building a strong foundation. One way to master the Olympic lifts is to break them into several pieces, such as the deadlift, overhead press, shrugs, and so on. Take the time to learn each exercise and increase the load gradually.
