February 4, 2020 (Colorado Springs, CO) -- USA Weightlifting is excited to partner with Crossover Symmetry of Lakewood, Colorado to offer its members products designed to promote strength and stability for the shoulders, hips and core. 

Founded in 2006, Crossover Symmetry began as a program to increase strength for baseball players. Today, their products address many of the demands that weightlifters encounter during training. 

“Lifters need strong backs for better scap stability, they need speed and timing of those little rotator cuff muscles, and they need something to help prime movement before training sessions,” said Crossover Symmetry’s Director of Training, Matt Unthank. “It checks all the major boxes, and does it really effectively. A lot of the magic is in the details.”

Crossover Symmetry offers two systems, one for the shoulders, and one for the hips and core. Both are designed to be practical and efficient for athletes to use regularly. 

“We’re delighted to partner with Crossover Symmetry to give our athletes access to products that can supplement their training to improve overall performance,” said Phil Andrews, USA Weightlifting’s CEO. “Athletes know accessory and flexibility work is important if they want to consistently improve their lifts.” 

Crossover offers education and training on their products for maximum benefit. The systems can help athletes address the following areas: 

1. A quick and easy warm-up to get joints warm and primed, ready to lift.  

2. Accessory work to challenge strength and stability.

3. May help prevent or rehab an injury.

"Weightlifters love to challenge themselves and their bodies to get better every day,” Unthank said. “We at Crossover Symmetry are excited to help them achieve that, and then some."

Participants at USA Weightlifting’s national events can try the Crossover Symmetry systems in the training hall beginning in February at the National Junior and University Championships in Pleasanton, CA.
