VASA'S PERFORMANCE LIFTING AREA

INCLUDED IN BASIC, FITNESS AND STUDIO MEMBERSHIPS

Strength training is an important part of a complete fitness routine. Lifting weights aids in building muscle mass, strengthening bones, supporting healthy joints, and managing body composition.

Performance lifting is a specialized subset of resistance training that will challenge and improve your overall strength. Using various equipment types like bars, bumper plates, platforms, and racks, high-performance lifting is centered around six main movements—the snatch, power clean, jerk, front squat, back squat, and deadlift. These movements are excellent compound exercises that work multiple muscle groups at the same time. The primary source of power starts at the legs, using the glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings, and ends with the upper body, using the back, shoulders, and triceps.

Whether you’re training for sport or general health, VASA’s performance lifting area is a great place for members of all fitness levels to try something new or hone their technique.

BENEFITS OF OUR PERFORMANCE LIFTING AREA

Adding strength training to your gym routine will help you in your day-to-day life and improve other forms of movement like skiing, running, hiking, biking, and more. When you train for performance lifting, you are strengthening the muscles, bones, tendons, connective tissues, and ligaments to create a more robust and balanced body. You’ll also notice more defined muscles.

The more muscle mass you build, the more efficient your body becomes under strain, allowing you to complete various workouts at a higher level and for more time. Additionally, increasing muscle mass will raise your overall metabolic rate, helping you burn more calories.

HOW TO USE THE PERFORMANCE LIFTING AREA

The performance lifting area is focused on barbell training, which provides members the opportunity to train the entire body in a variety of ways. A standard 45-pound barbell is located on each rack in addition to 35-pound barbells, which have a slightly smaller grip size and are preferred by many women.

Each rack is set up with safety features like catches and J-hooks to safely catch a barbell in case of a missed lift. J-hooks are adjustable and can be set to the height of the lifter, allowing the person to safely un-rack and rack their barbell. The platform in front of the rack can be used for both the deadlift and Olympic lifting variations. Bumper plates and platforms prevent injury to the lifter and to the floor underneath the platform. The landmine attachment is used for more unconventional barbell movements that allow for additional range of motion and rotation during exercises.
