There are seemingly hundreds of programs or training methods that an athlete can use to “help” themselves get stronger, faster, and more fit. Some are extremely helpful and some, not so much. And it can take a long time to sift through all of these training methodologies to find the best one that works for you.
So, the question then begs: How do you figure it out?
There are three fundamental principles of a successful program. These points include:
Roan Cliff Weightlifting seeks to accomplish all three principles through the utilization of Olympic Weightlifting. Athletes at all levels can benefit from the Olympic lifts, weightlifting, as it develops the prerequisite strength, power, and speed for all sports. Additionally, if the athlete isn’t competing in a particular sport, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be an appropriate method for their training.
Now, you might be wondering why we only use the term, "athlete," to reference to the person participating in the training and not some other term, like fitness/workout practitioner. We believe that everyone who works out and trains should consider themselves to be an athlete for two reasons. First, it provides accountability. When training, you must ensure that a) you are consistently keeping to your training schedule and b) you are keeping to the workout intensities assigned by the coach. And second, when a person considers themselves an athlete, professional or not, they wear that title as a badge of honor. It motivates them to push themselves and remain disciplined in their training.
The method that Roan Cliff Weightlifting utilizes isn’t easy. But it is effective. It requires honest effort and hard work, but it is all in support of you, the athlete.
