Weightlifting Racks Arrive in North Vancouver
On Thursday morning a truck arrived with the strength training racks, plyometric boxes and incline benches from UCS, apparently delivered from the Grapevine because the boxes were labelled Grapevine, Texas. The equipment weighed 1700lbs and was too long to unload using the small lift the delivery person had, so we had to breakdown the boxes and discover what was inside. David and I demonstrated a tremendous amount of teamwork to unpack the truck while being very aware of how we lifted so that we did not injure ourselves. An hour and half later everything was inside and the debris was in the recylcing bin.
We now have access to training weights (5kg) and bars (11 kg) as well as higher loads such as 25kg plates and 20kg bars. We will be getting some lighter plates as well. Now that the strength racks and plates are in place we have a greater capacity to teach clients how to execute a wide variety of strength and power lifts properly progressively. Having the proper tools enables our Kinesiologists to provide efficient, effective and progressive exercise therapy programs for our clients whether they are seeking to improve sports performance, enhance quality of life or wish to return to work.
