The CrossFit Burke Strongman Club meets on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7:30pm-8:30pm and on Saturday and Sunday at 12:00pm-1:00pm. There is an eight person limit to each class to provide high level coaching and service to our Strongman athletes.

The goal of this class is to consistently build strength across a spectrum of implements and movements common to powerlifting, strongman, CrossFit Total, and super total competitions. Athletes will build a foundation allowing them to more specifically peak toward a competition of their choosing.

From month to month, athletes should increase speed and efficiency of movement, as well as pounds lifted, on a number of implements/movements. Some examples include:

1) Each of the super total and CrossFit total movements, including back squat, deadlift, bench press, overhead press, clean and jerk, and snatch, using both barbell and axle bars.

2) Stationary strongman implements, including log cleans/presses, stone loading, keg loading/throwing/pressing, car/frame deadlifting, and heavy dumbbell pressing.

3) Moving strongman events, including farmers walk, stone/sandbag/keg/odd object carries, yoke carries, and tire flipping.

A majority of the Axle and Barbell work will be done on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, while most odd object and implement work will be done on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Training will be intense, with short bouts of maximal effort and longer rest breaks. Conditioning will rarely go longer than 10 minutes of constant activity. Attendance to each session is considered mandatory and "homework" will be prescribed based on each participants specific weaknesses.
