Hell of a battle during that WOD at the 9:30am between Janelle A and Laura C.  They went back and forth for 8 rounds and both landed on 168 reps!  Those DB Power Cleans got nasty.  It is tough to grip that DB, remember use the hook!  It works with dumbells too with the clean.  Snatch form was on point this morning.  Those 2 touch N go Power Snatch were tough when heavy.  Did you ever think you would look forward to full snatch?  You definitely did in this complex the last two rounds.  WE have a fun chipper on the menu tomorrow.  Try to get back to that rower and rip that handle!

This guy has been a great addition to our community over the last 2 years.  From the day Robert walked through our doors he has been on a consistent path of gains in strength and skill.  Robert is always focused on the right way to lift in here.  Robert takes his time and performs every move to standard.  Beyond these physical gains Robert is just a good dude.  Always at each social event to brighten the mood of all who surround him.  Happy B day Roberto!  Next is Brett K.  Brett has been with us for about four months now.  No matter what tries to derail this guy from getting in here, he always makes it in.  Brett has been dealing with some injuries as of late but always finds a way to get the work down regardless.  Brett is a renaissance man and has experience with everything from a professional photographer to his sons boy scout troop leader.  I am excited to see this guy keep progressing in here over the next year.  These 4 WOD’s are sprints, pick a weight you can touch n go, you want at least 1:30-2 min rest before the next round.  We can also scale run or row distance to achieve this.  See you tomorrow.  You rest with the extra time you have under the 5 min cap.  Push the run’s and rows!

Sorry for the back to back long WOD’s but we have to get a long one in with all that pie that is going to be ingested.  Be sure to pick groups with same strength there will only be one bar per group.  Also pick partner to run with that has same pace.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Adjusted schedule this week with one 9:3oam WOD Thursday, and 9:30am and 4:30pm open box Friday.  Two B Day shout out’s tonight.  First is Morgan DJ.  When this guy is not working with Ranch Adobe or Petaluma fire dept, which is a lot, it sure is great having him in class.  Morgan is a hard worker and a great listener.  Morgan is an athlete that immediately implements the feedback and cues you give as a coach.  One of the best qualities this young man has is that he has no ego.  Morgan has never cared about what weight is on his bar, he cares about learning something correctly. I have always admired that about Morgan.  It is great having you a part of this community Morgan, happy b Day!  Next up is a new athlete, Rafael C.  This guy is determined to be good at whatever he does, and this is immediately apparent when you talk to him.  Rafa gave me some of his history the other night, and the obstacles this man has overcome are unreal.  I apologize if I get some of these details wrong Rafa.  Rafa served in the US Army in Afghanistan  around a decade ago.  Rafa’s job was to create a highway in the most dangerous region in the country.  There is a documentary about it called Hyena Road.  In 2009 the vehicle Rafa was in was hit with a roadside bomb.  When Rafa woke up he was in a hospital in Germany and the doctors told him he would struggle walking for the rest of his life, his back was destroyed.  Rafa never gave up on his dream to walk normally or exercise again and little by little started to regain strength.  3 years later without telling his doctor  he started to ride a rode bike.  About 3 years after that he was hitting the Iron Man in Santa Rosa!  With that determination and grit this guy is going to dive head in to this sport and see some crazy results.  Happy B Day Rafa!  Beast of a WOD today, fun to watch that 20 rep squat!  Got a long one tomorrow to loosen up those bodies before Thanksgiving.  Keep you shoulder back and chest up on DB Dead, if you collapse your shoulders your low back will feel it.

A big B Day shout out to Nick GP!  No better way to celebrate your B Day then hitting a 40# full snatch PR at 155!!!!!!!  This guy has been on fire the last 6 months in here.  It is without question the year of Pomo.  You couldn’t find a nicer guy then Nick.  THis guy is positive in every situation, whether things are up or down.  Nick works his ass off too.  There was a time, not to long ago, when Nick could not even Snatch an empty barbell.  Fast forward a little over a year and he is throwing around 155!  It has been very rewarding to sit back and watch this guy develop as an athlete.  Happy B Day Pomo! Damn we had some PR’s today.  To many to mention but I got to give some love to Troy M with a 30# Pr at 205 and Becky S chasing a PR for a long time and got it at 98#! We have a fun challenge coming at you tomorrow, you really have to game this thing!

So we will have a slightly adjusted schedule for this week.  We will be open Thanksgiving for one WOD at 9:30am.  Friday will be adjusted to have two opportunities to get in the box.  We will have a 9:30am class Friday mornings and a 4:30pm open box.  All else will be the same.  The 38 North X Mas bonanza will be held at Coach Urban, Nick, Hannah, and Marco’s home in West Petaluma on Dec 16th.  We will be repeating last years theme of Ugly Christmas Sweater/outfit.  I will be grabbing a keg and a number of handles of booze from Costco.  Please bring some food to share and any booze/drinks you want to add to the mix.  The goal is to get back to the Buckhorn for karaoke that night.  Lets make it fun, lets make it memorable, and let’s make it weird.  You guys never fail to make this night a great one.  Looking forward to seeing ALL of you there.  More details to come.  A big shout out to one of our athletes Natalie D, who has started her own business!  Natalie has been Microblading for some time now and felt it was the right time to start her own thing.  For those of you who don’t know, and I didn’t, Microblading is a form of permanent makeup for eyebrows done with featherlike strokes that mimic hair. Natalie tells me it is innovative and exciting and she would love to tell you more about it if you’re interested. You can find me on Instagram at BladedTattsbyNat or call text 707.364.2552.  Give that girl a call!  You guys have been crushing these PR’s all month so I might as well give you another opportunity.  Christmas came early!  Have fun and if you are feeling it push that weight, if not get a good Snatch session in!
