Over the course of the program, athletes will work through a multitude of movement variations, from bodyweight to loaded medicine balls, dumbbells, kettlebells and more. Workouts will be individualized by varying weight, volume, and intensity. Each day’s focus “workout” will be unique, keeping things both fun and challenging, and helping all athletes to develop true all-around fitness and performance. The class is perfect for students and athletes that are serious about their fitness, but don’t desire to throw around barbells or heavy weights every day not While “strength” will absolutely be worked on, the emphasis here is on movement, work capacity, and conditioning. Instructor: Brandon Futagaki.
Intro to Weight Training

 An introduction to the world of barbells and dumbbells! 

Students will learn weightlifting movements very gradually, progressing from empty bars, to lightly loaded work, before coming to and recording a baseline “max” in each of the major lifts. This will help direct training within more advanced programs down the road. Students will learn the 3 "Power Lifts" - aka the Back Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift. These 3 movements are widely considered the foundational “Strength” movements. Not only will learning them be directly beneficial to health and performance through the development of baseline, full-body strength, but they will also serve as a great jumping off point for the rest of our weight room movements.  Additionally, students will learn a host of accessory strength movements using the widely versatile dumbbell, as well as continuing to develop core strength and stability!
