Today: Active Life Bulletproof Assessment Workshop at CFSBK

Where: 608 Degraw
When: Today from 2-7pm. A 20 minute snack break will be included.
Who: Hosted by Coach KHarpZ and other members of the Active Life staff

What: At a Bulletproof Workshop, Active Life doctors and coaches take you through the Athlete’s Hierarchy of Needs to identify flexibility, mobility, and strength balance limitations that can lead to injury or are currently limiting your performance.

Come ready to train! This is a hands-on workshop with lots of lifting, mobility, and flexibility testing. You do not need to be strong or flexible to attend. This workshop is for athletes of all levels.

Be prepared to:

  • Deadlift
  • Squat
  • Press
  • Perform bodyweight movements

Our goal is not to smoke you; however, the assessments are challenging and you will be tired when you leave!

My first short circuit today! It's no joke :) didn't bother counting reps or anything but it all felt good/challenging.

July 16, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterSarahM

I made up some programming and it was great: 5 wb and 5 slam balls emom, 20", 20# and 10' for the wb's. It gave me a lot of rest but given the volume a) felt like smart scaling, and next time I do this I will up the reps... so, if you are reading this and you aren't some programming expert, what are some successes you have made up?

Interested in purchasing Crossover Symmetry for home - not cheap. However, there are some cheaper knockoffs on Amazon. Anyone have experience with these? Recommend or no?

Noon class

WOD Rx'd in 9:03. Slower than I thought I would be. Happy to be olympic lifting :)

@StephM you can buy therabands of different weights (red, green, yellow) and do the same exercises. If you're really attached to the handles it might be worth it to splurge tho.

Clean complex:
kept it light for most of it because I'm really sore.
93x5, 103x2, 113x2, 123 made the clean, failed the jerk because the bar was too far out in front of me and I didn't drop under it.

WOD in 10:07
63# and 2 ab mats
Both these movements typically bother my thumb but didn't feel too bad today. Goal was to do everything unbroken. I was able to but needed rest before each movement. I'm really bad at power snatches and cycling snatches in general so I consider this an accomplishment.

BMU practice
Think these are achievable again soon!

Kept pp light with 25# DBs and subbed GHD situps for T2B because my hands were too tender even hang from the bar. Runs were slow. All rounds between 1:25 and 1:30.
