It’s no secret I love Olympic Lifting, and one of the best CrossFit certs you can attend is the Olympic Lifting Cert. You will learn more in two days that you can put into immediate practice than you ever thought possible, as well as develop a love for burpees! Coach Burgener is also one of my all time favorite people – he’s incredibly motivating and knowledeable about weightlifting. If you have every thought, “I wish I was better at lifting”, this cert is for you!! There is a cert scheduled at CrossFit Deep Ellum in September. Register as soon as you can because it will sell out.
Coach Burgener shows clips from the 2008 Olympics at the end of every Olympic Lifting Cert. This clip is one of my favorites to watch – here is a shorter version of it, from the men’s weightlifting 105kg weight class. The first lifter you see (in the blue and red) is Evgeny Chigisher from Russia. His final clean and jerk was 257kg (565 lbs.) and put him 18 kg ahead of all of the other competitors. The last lift you see is Matthias Steiner from Austria. Steiner’s best lift prior to the Olympics had been 240kg (528 lbs)….his last lift in the video, he clean and jerked 258kg (567 lbs.)…he PRd at the Olympics, the world’s biggest stage.
