Winter Strength Series: Part Deux

Tomorrow marks the beginning of part 2 of our winter strength cycle.  Over the next two weeks we'll be focusing on the Mid-Hang Power Clean, Front Squat and Press.  We're looking forward to seeing people solidify their technique with these movements and continue to put up new PRs in 2009.   

Safe Travels David, Margie & Gillian!

For those playing along at home David, Margie & Gillian are all out West soaking up all that sunshine and training with our friends on the Left Coast until next Monday.  Fear not, all classes (with the exception of the Saturday Teaser classes) will be running as scheduled.  We wish the travelers all the best and look forward to frequent updates of their adventures. 

See you all tomorrow!

compare to 1/1/09

Accessory Work
3 Rounds NFT
Virtual Shoveling 10 reps, each side
Dips, 10 Reps

If 10 Strict Dips are easy for you, start to add weight via dumbbells or a weighted belt.

Jenna diligently tracks her numbers

In an effort to make classes run a little smoother and finish on time, we're going to formally partition sessions into three basic sections:

Warm-up/Soft Tissue
10-12 minutes
Max Effort 25-30 minutes
Metabolic Conditioning/Accessory work 15-20 minutes

In essence, it will be very similar to the way classes have been running with the exception that everyone will have a better understanding of how long they have to complete a particular section.  Athletes are still encouraged to either come early or stay late as they please.  Take advantage of open gym hours for additional soft tissue work, skill development or just to socialize!
