Milo Strong

Strength training with proper and effective form.

Powerlifting is often confused with Olympic lifting. In Powerlifting, the athlete works to lift the heaviest weight they possibly can for just one repetition in the bench press, back squat, and deadlift. Olympic Lifting focuses strictly the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. Coach Alan, Coach Isaac and Coach Darias oversee our Strength and Olympic lifting program which cycles the athletes through a cyclical variation of both Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting movements, incorporating related progression elements in addition to supplemental strength building exercises. Classes focus on increasing your 1-3 rep max, refining your form and preparing for competition if that is the path the athlete has chosen.

Testing Your Strength

Lifting heavy things has been a pursuit since the earliest recorded history. People have been testing their strength in competition and being praised for their prowess for thousands of years. Just take a look at Milo, our own namesake, who started lifting a calf as a young boy and then carried the full-grown bull upon his shoulders as a young man. Our powerlifting program can help you do it the right way.

Lifting Fundamentals

It is important to get proper training so you don’t do something foolish and hurt yourself. An injury is eminent if you simply jump into a high intensity and high volume workout routine. We teach you the core fundamentals of the lifts and help you practice over time to increase your power.
