Weightlifting and Fitness Center
CSA Nutrition recently opened a new training facility, the Podium Gold Weightlifting and Fitness Center. Although our focus is on Olympic Weightlifting, our program is modified to accommodate any athlete involved in a sport requiring explosive speed and strength. Most of our lifters are ranked in the top of their weight classes in the United States and three have recently set Pacific Weightlifting Association Records. Hysen Pulaku, a 77kg lifter for our club recently shattered the PWA records and is currently ranked #1 in the U.S. and #7 in the world.
Training is conducted at our new facility in Danville, California, just outside of San Francisco under the supervision of Olympic Silver Medalist, Alex Krychev, and Ivan Abadjiev, former coach of the Bulgarian National Team. Abadjiev's famous "Bulgarian Method" has produced more Olympic and World Championship medalists than any coach in the history of Olympic Weightlifting. The foundation of Olympic Lifts are the power clean, the snatch and the clean and jerk. These are ground based lifts that activate a high percentage of fast twitch muscle fibers - far more than than bench, squat or dead lift. These muscle fibers are responsible for generating explosive power, absolute strength, speed, quickness, muscular endurance and flexibility, all of which can benefit athletes in sports such as track and field, football, soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and swimming.
For more information about the facility, and for inquires on how to apply, please contact Alex at: 925 658-2323 or Mark at 925 216-6340.
