I know its hard to look past Christmas and New Years when planning travel and weekend events but I have two weekends that you don’t want to miss!
The first is an education filled day. February 4th, your very own Dr. Michael Hartman will be presenting on a topic very important to everyone that trains at BlackBox. He will be talking about overtraining and recovery techniques. This is not just for those of you interested in coaching or teaching. The knowledge you will get from this event will allow you to stay healthy into old age while training hard the whole time! With PhD in Exercise Physiology, Dr. Hartman is sure to impress you with his knowledge. He impresses me everyday.

Right after Dr. Hartman finishes presenting my coach will be here at BlackBox teaching the olympic lifts. She is one of the best in the country and has had olympians seek her out for her technical knowledge and attention to detail. I know from personal experience how amazing she is and would highly recommend you coming to get some coaching from her. The first 2.5 hour session starting at 12:30pm will be for beginners and consist of going through progressions of the lifts (Snatch and Clean and Jerk) with the sole purpose of hammering the basics.
The second session starting at 3:30 is for the more advanced lifter. Here Ursula will be running the session like a training session and critiquing your lifts for you. She will be giving specific exercises to fix weaknesses in your lifts as well as tips on how to improve your lifts for the future.
Immediately following the later session, me and a couple of my training partners will be training so stick around if you want to see them lift some big weights.

Once you get your recovery and technique dialed in, you will have a month to train for the First Annual BlackBox Weightlifting Championships. This will be a full weightlifting meet, sanctioned by the USAW and everything. You will be competing in the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk as well as the total. We will have 3 sessions (Youth, Women, Men) with an optional 4th depending on numbers.
