Shine those oly shoes and tighten that lifting belt – it’s time to take on the 2020 Mock Olympic Weightlifting Meet!
On Saturday, February 29th, CrossFit Round Lake will be hosting this year’s mock meet.
Run like an actual sanctioned Olympic Weightlifting meet, this event is designed to introduce and teach athletes about the sport of Olympic Weightlifting. We will start by covering the basic rules and regulations of a meet, as well as how to properly warm up for your first scored attempts.
Each participant will weigh-in, then get the chance to take three Snatches and three Clean & Jerks on the competition platform. Lifts will progress and be judged just like a sanctioned meet.
This event is meant to be a learning experience for all skill levels in the sport, from beginner to advanced. There is no requirement for special equipment, such as singlets or weightlifting shoes. Just come, learn, and throw some weights around!
Location: CrossFit Round Lake
Time: 9am to 1pm
