Workout of the Day

1806, 2017

A big shout out to all the 38 North Dad’s out there today.  Being only 11 days into fatherhood I don’t know if I have truly earned my first Father’s Day.  But even in this sort time period I have gotten a good taste of the total commitment and selflessness a parent surrounds their children with.  I see it with the way my wife looks at our boy and I feel it in deep in my gut.  Kudos to all you Dad’s (and moms) who have been passing this love on to your kids for 1 day or 50 years!  We will be hitting Deadlift’s once a week for the next 5 weeks.  It won’t be on the same day every week the the squat cycle.  Take your time with this movement, be perfect.  Getting better at the deadlift will translate to literally everything you do in this box and everything physically you do in life.  Back off on weight and remain perfect.  Put your ego aside and get better at this movement.  The only way to do it is to stay within a weight range that your torso and shoulders do not collapse with.  Stay on your heels and keep your chest high. DOn’t short the squat and don;t worm the push-ups!

A B Day shout out to Kyle M tonight.  IT has been fun to watch this guys strength gains over the last 3 years.  Kyle had not touched a barbell prior to 38 North and when he came in it was a process to build his strength.  Kyle never shied away from those movements and years later this guy is repping 155 cleans in WODs.  Kyle is a friendly positive influence on everyone he comes in contact with, he always brings up the energy of each class he is in.  Kyle will continue to get stronger in here with the persistence and commitment he has shown and it will be fun to watch!  For those not comfortable with the full snatch yet stay with two power snatches.  Happy B Day Kyle!

Fare thee well to out very own Anna C!  Anna is heading out East to Manhattan with her job at Marmot.  Anna has been with us for 3+ years and the gainz in this young lady were extraordinary.  Anna had never been on the barbell when she got to us, but fast forward a couple years and she was one of the most competitive ladies in the box.  I wish Anna the best out there but selfishly hope she gets her fill of the Big Apple quickly and returns home to us.  Safe travels Miss Campbell!  Some great effort on the bear crawl and WOD at the 9:30 today.  No one backdown to that WOD,  Shout out to Kristen S who crushed both the HSPU and T2B today!  Pick a weight you can move through quickly tomorrow on the HPC, you should be able to get 5 reps consistently before a drop on that first 21.  See you tomorrow

A B Day shout out to Justin P!  I love having this guy around our community.  This is one solid young man.  JP is strong as an Ox and has one of the best bottom position’s you will when he gets under that bar.  JP doesn’t say much at first but if you listen he will sneak in some of the best one liners at the gym.  Justin has been with Cal Fire the last 5 years and recently finished Paramedic school.  I am stoked to have this guy with us and I have no doubt this guys numbers will get bigger and bigger throughout the year.  Happy B Day JP!  These AMRAP’s are all out sprints!  Don’t hold back or pace just grip it and rip it.  Find your hip on both the pull and hi-pull every set.  Don’t increase in weight unless you find it.  Shoot for 3+ rounds
