The KnuckleUp Barbell Club uses a strength, conditioning, and movement philosophy that takes functional movements and olympic lifts, and groups them in a mixed modal manner, does them at a relative high intensity, and injects variance into how they are delivered. The outcome is participants become well-rounded and improve in all areas of fitness.”
