“DT” in a Boat
3 Rounds for Time:
2 Rounds of “DT” 155/105
“DT”= 12 Deadlifts + 9 Hang Power Cleans + 6 Push Jerks
The limiting factor determining load on the barbell will likely be the Jerks, which should be medium-heavy for you. Scale load as needed so that most sets of jerks can be done unbroken. Each round of “DT” should take around a minute, so considering scaling volume overall to 9 Deadlifts + 6 Hang Power Cleans + 3 Jerks if you can handle the load and want to bias more of a strength stimulus.
Pro Tip on breaking up “DT”: The final rep of each movement leads into the next, so instead of doing 12 Deadlifts and dropping the bar, do 11… break… then the 12th rep, putting you in a position to begin the 1st Hang Power Clean. Same for the Hang Power Cleans into the Push Jerks. Or you could just, ya know, do the whole thing unbroken.

Starting August 12th: Sunday Pilates with Karina!
Our beloved, longtime Pilates teacher KH is leaving to open her own Pilates studio in Manhattan, but that doesn’t mean we’ll stop offering Pilates. Starting August 12th, Pilates will move to Sundays at 12pm and will be coached by our own Karina S.!
Coming from a background of competitive cross country skiing, Karina saw the benefits of a regular Pilates practice immediately and signed up for teacher training after her first session. She believes Pilates allows us to regain the freedom of movement we enjoyed as children, and that transforming fitness into a form of play is essential to creating a life-long practice.
Her classes are vigorous and full of laughter with an emphasis on proper grounding and alignment.
Karina has trained everyone from Division 1 Linebackers to those barely able to walk into the studio. She completed her Balanced Body certification at Paragon Pilates & Physical Therapy studying under Cari Riis Stemmler, Tiza Wynn Riley, and Roger Gonzalez Hibner. She has completed continuing education in Hands on Cueing Techniques, Pre and Post Natal Pilates, Low Back Pain and many other topics. She has experience working with a wide range of spinal conditions as well as many other injuries and limitations.
