I’ve been doing CrossFit for about 10 years. I think the biggest takeaway from the Academy Course was really fine tuning things — little cues and mistakes that I had in my lifts that I was aware of but didn’t know how to fix. During the course, my clean & jerk has gone from about 300lbs to 315lbs and my snatch went from 235lbs to 250lbs.
I think what I’ve taken from this course and can now apply to myself and others in CrossFit is that I can see the errors that I was making and finer points that I can relay to other people who may have the same kinds of issues. Whether it be coming from the ground, opening or closing the hips, or keeping the bar close, t’s helped tremendously to actually be able to move the bar more proficiently and effectively!
