Workout of the Day

605, 2015

I had my entire cherry picker speech ready to post tonight until the 5pm rolled in 17 deep looking to party. Actually 9:30 was 1o deep too.  Great efforts tonight on those Kettle’s, especially the first UB set.  People dug deep.  Clean were on point as well.  Shout out to Matt K who I can confidently say has one of the prettiest Jerk’s in the box.  If I said prettiest jerk in the box in any other environment thing could get weird.  The guy moves so fast under the bar.  Matt hit the last four complex’s at 245 tonight and they looked effortless.  Good work man.  The row cycle continues, only two more weeks.

Great work on the thruster tonight, it was a fight to keep that bar off the ground the last couple of rounds.  A bunch of new faces in the box the last month bringing a bunch of good energy.  Remember as a new athlete it is not about how much weight you put on the bar, hammer that form and the weight comes.  Lets focus on shortening breaks this week.  Do a 3-4 second count on all breaks so they do not turn into 12 second breaks.  See you guys tomorrow

Every 90 sec staring at 0:00 for 13:30 complete Power Clean+Below Knee Power Clean+Push Jerk+Push Jerk go up in weight at for complex at 4:30 and 9:00 stay the same for last 4 complex’s

So I was informed that the 23rd, which we had tried to put the Cornhole tourney on is Memorial day weekend.  I know a lot of you will have plans that weekend so we are moving it to Sat May 30th.  Sorry for any confusion, lets get a big turn out, the more participants the better.  I will get a sign up sheet at the box as well so we can game the bracket.  Mark your calendars.  This will also be a potluck. so even if you are not going to participate come drink a beer and hand.  It will be at the same park we had it in last year.  Kids and family are welcome so bring them along.   Great open box today, congrats to Leanne M who got her first bar MU!  We are starting a 5 week Back Squat Percentage cycle.  It isn’t crazy in volume but will put on some numbers.  See you guys tomorrow

Another day jammed packed with athletes.  Great to see a bunch more new faces.  45 sec of fun, that row was no joke.  Athletes had strong efforts all day.  Big B Day shout out to Coach Krista!  Krista was one of our founding members and quickly became a part of the foundation this community was built upon.  Krista was gifted from the day she walked though the door.  Born to lift the barbell, heavy weight came easy to this one.  From gifted athlete came a revered coach and the rest is history.  It has been amazing to watch this young lady evolve the last couple of years.  It seems like yesterday she was a student and now she has a full blown career I have been blessed to watch this amazing and rewarding path.  I feel honored to call her a 38 North athlete, coach, and friend.  Happy B Day Krista!   Bing those high socks of chin guards for the climbs.  See you tomorrow
