SBK on the Farm
As many of you know, there's been talk of a trip to Grazin' Angus Acres in Ghent, New York. Farmer Dan at Grazin' Angus is excited to have the help and has offered us a chance to pitch some tents, work the farm and then send us over to his neighbor Farmer Dante at Milk Thistle Farm. It doesn't get more functional than farming, and just think of all that beef and milk...

Dan is at the NYC markets over the weekend, so ideally we should go up during the week: perhaps a Wednesday - Saturday. If that's not possible, we can make it a weekend only trip, but Dan and Dante will not be around to host us.

If you are interested in this trip, please email Margie(AT) about your availability either July 29-August 2, or August 12-16.

Dont' forget that this Saturday is JacIntoStorm '09, to celebrate Jacinto's 70th birthday.
Check out this post for some pictures from last year's storm.  We will be doing the same workout with the exception that one rep will be added to each movement.  Jacinto will be hosting a BBQ at his house afterwards. More details to follow.

MEBBBK: Max Effort Black Box (Brooklyn!)

Today is the last day of our Mid Hang Power Clean, High Bar Back Squat and Bench Press strength cycle.  We're going to encourage a back off week from tomorrow until 7/4 when we'll kick things off with a STORM

The next cycle's movements are:
Total Body: Push Jerks
Lower Body: Front Squats
Upper Body: Weighted Chin-Ups (Overhand). 

For those of you unfamiliar with the MEBB, we choose three movements and cycle them through a descending rep scheme over four weeks. The Max Effort days have been posted in the CFSBK Calendar if you'd like to see how it breaks down through July. Much thanks to Coach Michael Rutherford for developing the MEBB. program.

Jerks are following a 5x3, 5x3, 5x1 rep scheme
Foundations Graduates will be doing strict Presses instead of Jerks and follwing a 5x5 rep scheme throughout the entire cycle.

Happy Travels, Margie. We'll see you after the Games!

CrossFit South Brooklyn Mind Body Online loves you. Love it back?
