Let’s be Friends! Keeping the Bar Close
Wednesday, September 23rd at 7:30pm

Can you snatch a whole bunch of reps at one weight, but then add a little weight and suddenly the bar feels like it weighs 1000lbs? That’s probably because you aren’t keeping the bar close to your body. In this clinic, BBC coaches will help you learn the skills and drills that will help the bar and your body become close friends.

Boom! Making Hip Contact
Wednesday, September 30th at 7:30pm

Ever feel like you just can’t generate enough power to get the bar over your head? Chances are you aren’t producing the power you are capable of because you aren’t getting the bar all the way to your hip. The BBC coaches will help you get some BOOM in your snatch at this clinic.

Get Low! Getting Under the Bar
Wednesday, October 7th at 7:30pm

Have you ever said, “I just can’t get under the bar when I snatch”? If you have, you are not alone. The most important part of the lift is making it and if you don’t get under the bar, that’s not going to happen. In this clinic, the BBC coaches will teach you the tools that will help you get LOW and make the lift.
