You can choose to max out any or all of the lifts. Coaches will go around spot correcting and assisting, but this is NOT a technical day. Only max out lifts where competency is proficient! Aside from maxing out, class time is all yours! View Public Whiteboard Snatch (1×1) Clean and Jerk (1×1) Front Squat (1×1) Back Squat (1×1) Deadlift (1×1)
