testing and optimizing these methods in their respective sports. As a result, our array of
programs have been vetted and engineered to deliver the most effective approach to your training.

Weightlifting Foundations

Weightlifting Foundations at JDI Barbell focuses on the
fundamentals of (Olympic-) weightlifting technique. This
course will teach the basics of the snatch and the clean
and jerk and will build foundational strength in and out of
these movements.

Each class includes guided warm-up, the programmed
workout which will include substantial hands-on technique
work along with accessory strength work.

The sport of Powerlifting consists of three attempts at
three lifts: the squat, bench press and deadlift. At JDI
Barbell we’ve designed a program to help you maximize
your performance through competition-focused,
technique-driven programming.
Each class includes guided warm-up, the programmed
workout, which will focus on improving the three
competition movements, and accessory strength work.
This class is ideal for athletes with 6+ months’ experience.
For those a little less experienced, we suggest the Strength
Groundwork class
