At CBSN, We offer specialized Masters weightlifting program that is tailored to meet the specific needs and abilities of older athletes, and includes the following components:

  1. Emphasis on technique: As we age, it becomes even more important to use proper form and technique in weightlifting to avoid injury. Our Masters weightlifting program includes a focus on refining technique and ensuring that movements are executed with precision and safety.
  2. Lower training volume: Older athletes may not be able to handle the same volume of training as younger athletes due to changes in recovery ability and susceptibility to injury. Our Masters weightlifting program includes a reduced training volume, allowing for adequate recovery time between workouts.
  3. Incorporation of accessory exercises: In addition to the primary Olympic lifts (the snatch and the clean and jerk), Our Masters weightlifting program also include accessory exercises to address areas of weakness or to provide additional stimulus for muscle growth and maintenance. This include exercises such as squats, lunges, and core work.
  4. Flexibility and mobility work: Older athletes may have more difficulty with flexibility and mobility, making it harder to achieve proper positions in weightlifting movements. Our Masters weightlifting program include specific flexibility and mobility work to help address these issues and improve performance.
  5. Individualized programming: Our Masters weightlifting program is individualized to meet the needs and abilities of the athlete. This include adjusting training volume, exercise selection, and intensity to ensure that progress is being made while also avoiding injury.
