OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING WITH COACH WU CHUAN FU
Our Barbell club focuses on increasing technical proficiency in the snatch and the clean and jerk within a small group setting.
Because of the progressive and personal nature of your experience with these lifts, we recommend those interested to commit to at least 10 sessions.
The Barbell club is led by Coach Wu ChuanFu, former coach of the Singapore Weightlifting Team.
WORKSHOP LEVEL 1
If you have always wanted to try Olympic Weightlifting, here’s your chance. This is a one day Olympic Weightlifting for Beginners Workshop to introduce you to the world of weightlifting. Learn the basics of how to Snatch and Clean & Jerk in a small group setting with Coach Wu Chuan Fu.
Dates: Sunday, 12 November
Time: 1pm – 3pm
Price: $216 (includes 8% GST)
Note: Workshop will only run with a minimum of 4 pax.
WORKSHOP LEVEL 2
Day 1 is aimed at improving physical and movement awareness.
We’ll be running through exercises that help you understand these aspects of your body. These body awareness drills will help you learn to control specific impulses and be aware of things your body needs to fire when we transfer it to actual weightlifting drills.
The ability to stay conscious through movement is directly proportional to the level at which you perform each exercise, and this helps us also reduce the injury potential when techniques get more complicated.
Day 2: First pull and extension
Where does the force come from? How do we produce, harness and control power?
The single movement of the snatch and clean is made up of several parts, chiefly the first pull and extension. The mastery of these initial phases is extremely important, as the subsequent components of the lift will then depend on the individual’s centre of gravity and how they draw from this initial power.
Dates: TBD (please email us to indicate interest)
Pre-Requisites: Must have completed Workshop Level 1
Capacity: 8 pax
Cost: $267.50 (early bird pricing)

“Coach Wu’s attention to detail is unmatched and his knowledge far supersedes that of any other coach I have ever met.”
Coach Wu has been training me in the Olympic lifts for the past 6 months. I went from not knowing how to overhead squat with very limited mobility to a 80kg Snatch PR in 3 months.
His attention to detail is unmatched and his knowledge far supersedes that of any other coach I have ever met or seen in the fitness industry. Looking forward to many more sessions and perhaps a competition soon.

“Coach Wu is definitely one of the best weightlifting teacher I’ve ever had.”
I travelled from Hong Kong to see Coach Wu at Level Robinson to improve my Olympic Weightlifting. I had such a great time learning from Coach Wu – he was very patient and understands how difficult it can be for one to change some bad lifting habits.
Level Robinson Road is a beautiful facility. It never felt crowded at the gym. Brand new Eleiko bars and plates. Highly recommended.

The Level Barbell Club trains 6 days a week at Robinson Road, and is made up of an interesting assortment of people. We caught up with Daniel, Sherling, Manoj and Jacintha and asked them if they get tired of lifting, of Coach Wu, or of each other.
We caught up with Wu Chuan Fu, our beloved weightlifting coach and asked him about his history as a weightlifter, his love for finding beauty in this sport and whether there’s hope for us as uncoordinated people.
