Every Other Minute on the Minute x 16 (8 Reps):
Snatch Pull + Hip Snatch
Build to a heavy but perfect load on the complex. No misses, no press outs. The “Hip” or “Power” position is one in which both the knees and hips flex. While the torso may lean forward a small amount, the barbell remains in the crease of the hip and does NOT travel down the thigh into a Mid-Hang position. The limited travel off the bar into the hang doesn’t allow for maximal loads to be used, and instead forces the lifter to focus on SPEED and an active arm pull under the bar.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at CFSBK
Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) is a full-contact grappling style that prioritizes strategy over brute force. Literally translating to the “soft” or “pliable” (jiu) “style” (jitsu), it is often thought of as the chess of martial arts. BJJ is, at its core, a self-defense system that employs positional advantages, joint locks, and chokes to defend against an opponent or attacker in an assertive and elegant manner. You needn’t be stronger than your opponent to subdue them, which makes BJJ one of the most practical and effective martial arts for all ages and sizes. There is no striking in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. This is a submission grappling art based on efficiency of movement, leverage, and timing.
Fundamentals is your jiu-jitsu starter pack. The course is geared towards anyone intrigued by BJJ but unsure where to begin, anyone who wants to become better acquainted with dynamic movement on the ground, and anyone who could use a review to jump back into it. This will be an 8 week course with 1 class per week. Classes will cover the basic body mechanics and techniques used in Jiu jitsu. Come dressed in standard work out garb (leggings, spats, shorts that won’t fall off) and be advised that the sweat you leave with may not be your own. No zippers, no claws, no jewelry! By the end of the course, you will be at the point where you can walk into a live-sparring Jiu Jitsu class without reservation.

- A note from CFSBKer MK: “I’m selling my Liv Envie Tri Advanced 2016. I used the bike for 2 seasons, pretty light mileage. Size Large. Shimano Ultegra components. Aero clip-on bars (easy to adjust). Super light. Super fast. Super fun. Turns out that it’s just a little too small for my build . Purchased in May 2016 from Ride Brooklyn for $3400. Looking to sell for $2800 or best offer! Definitely prefer to sell to someone in the BK community! Call/text MK Flynn at 415-306-4572 if you are interested.”
