BUILD POWER WITH OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING AT ATHENA PERFORMANCE

WHAT IS OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING?

OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING IS NOT JUST A SPORT; IT'S A DISCIPLINE THAT COMBINES STRENGTH, POWER, SPEED AND TECHNIQUE. IT INVOLVES TWO MAIN LIFTS: THE SNATCH AND THE CLEAN AND JERK. THESE LIFTS REQUIRE INDIVIDUALS TO LIFT A LOADED BARBELL FROM THE GROUND TO OVERHEAD IN ONE FLUID MOTION, SHOWCASING PRECISION, STRENGTH AND EXPLOSIVENESS. AT ATHENA PERFORMANCE, WE EMBRACE THE ESSENCE OF OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING, OFFERING COMPREHENSIVE CLASSES DESIGNED TO HELP INDIVIDUALS MASTER THESE ICONIC LIFTS.

 

ADVANTAGES OF OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING CLASSES FOR BEGINNERS AND EXPERTS

WHETHER YOU'RE A NOVICE OR AN EXPERIENCED LIFTER, OUR OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING CLASSES OFFER NUMEROUS BENEFITS. FOR BEGINNERS, OUR STRUCTURED PROGRAMMES PROVIDE THE PERFECT INTRODUCTION TO PROPER LIFTING TECHNIQUES UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF CERTIFIED COACHES. YOU'LL LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS STEP BY STEP, ENSURING SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY IN YOUR TRAINING.

FOR EXPERIENCED LIFTERS, OUR CLASSES OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY TO REFINE YOUR TECHNIQUE, INCREASE YOUR STRENGTH AND ENHANCE YOUR PERFORMANCE. OUR EXPERT COACHES PROVIDE PERSONALISED FEEDBACK AND PROGRAMMING TO HELP YOU REACH NEW HEIGHTS IN YOUR LIFTING JOURNEY.

 

WEIGHTLIFTING VS. OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING: UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE

WHILE BOTH WEIGHTLIFTING AND OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING INVOLVE LIFTING WEIGHTS, THEY DIFFER IN TECHNIQUE AND FOCUS. WEIGHTLIFTING TYPICALLY ENCOMPASSES A BROADER RANGE OF EXERCISES, INCLUDING EXERCISES LIKE BENCH PRESS, SQUATS AND DEADLIFTS. ON THE OTHER HAND, OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING FOCUSES SPECIFICALLY ON THE SNATCH AND CLEAN AND JERK, EMPHASISING EXPLOSIVE POWER AND TECHNICAL PROFICIENCY.

 

HEALTH BENEFITS OF OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING

ENGAGING IN OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING OFFERS BOTH PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH BENEFITS. PHYSICALLY, IT HELPS IMPROVE STRENGTH, POWER AND MUSCULAR ENDURANCE, LEADING TO ENHANCED ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND INJURY PREVENTION. MENTALLY, THE FOCUS AND DISCIPLINE REQUIRED IN OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING CAN BOOST CONFIDENCE, REDUCE STRESS AND PROVIDE A POSITIVE MINDSET.

AT ATHENA PERFORMANCE, WE PRIORITISE INCLUSIVITY AND SUPPORT FOR ALL INDIVIDUALS, REGARDLESS OF GENDER OR BACKGROUND. OUR WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT ENCOURAGES WOMEN, MEN AND EVERYONE TO EXPLORE THE WORLD OF OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING WITH CONFIDENCE.
