Morning Barbell Club - Crossfitcove

Morning Barbell Club


The people have spoken!  We heard from many of you that evenings don’t work for everyone and people craved alternative times for the next round of the Barbell Club.  Following a survey of ‘best times’ that worked for most, we have our time-slot winners — Wednesdays at 6:30am and Saturdays at 7am!

For those olympic lifting enthusiasts we will be running our barbell club again starting on May 9th.  This is a six week course focused on teaching and improving your snatch and clean and jerk. If you are an athlete that loves or is mystified by these lifts this program might be right for you.  We are limiting those program to only ten athletes so we can give everyone a lot of attention– so sign up now! 

Details: Starting May 9th and lasting for 6 weeks

Times: Wednesday at 6:30am and Saturdays at 7am

Cost: $125 for Cove Members. For Non Members $175

Cap: The class will be limited to 10 athletes.  

Common Questions:

  1. Can I miss a few classes?  Yes, there will be 12 classes over six weeks try to make at least 9 of them.
  2. What if I am a beginner? No problem, this class is for beginner and advanced lifters. The focus is on getting better and not actually going to the Olympics!
  3. Can I still CrossFit? Of course, but be aware that you are adding to your work load so you might have to take a step back on the number of classes you take or the weight you are using. We promise that this type of focused attention will help you improve your CrossFit in the long run. 
  4. What else can I expect?  Talk to us and we’ll answer any questions you might have.  Or we’re happy to put you in touch with an athlete who did the last cycle to get a personal reference!

Same weight across



30 Wall Balls

15 Power Cleans

10 Burpees

30 second rest

3 Rounds

Fitness: 95/65

 Coach’s Tip:   Today we continue with our back squat cycle.  It is imperative that you are going to depth with good form — we would rather you carry a light load and have perfect technique.  Since this is the beginning of the cycle, let’s start the good habits early on!



Take 12 Minutes to find a heavy 3-Rep Deadlift



15 min EMOM

10 Cal Row

10 Single Arm DB Snatch (5 each arm)

10 Sit Ups


RX+ = 12 per movement

Coach’s Tip: The first round or two you should have a good amount of rest on each station. Pick a scale that allows you to get the work done in 45 seconds (at the most) so you have transition time to get to the next movement
