Tomorrow is the fundraiser for Dawn and cookout. Come out and participate. It’s just like any other WOD, only you can win some good stuff and there’s free food, water, and some cold ones! The workouts will start at 12p and the chow will be ready around 1p.
"Why do we have to do these clean and snatch things?"
The snatch and the clean & jerk are difficult. Hard to learn and hard teach. Our trainers all go home more tired after a day of coaching the snatch than if we just did overhead squats. So why do we bother with them? Benefit to you, our clients is the answer. I could easily replace the clean with a high pull or the jerk with the push press. Your workout would be easier and our day would be too. But you didn’t sign up for that. When you heard about CFW, you heard we get results. Much of our results comes from teaching you and your body how to do new things. It doesn’t get any more new than the snatch for most of you, huh? The oly lifts, because they are difficult and require so much concentration and focus, yeild more benefit than most of you realize… yet.
Soon, we will offer a weekly Olympic lifting class… maybe two. We are also planning on setting up a 4 week Oly Lifting cycle for those interested. We also have Coach Chris Wilkes, one the East Coast’s best oly lift coaches, coming for a seminar on 26 July. If you’ve hit a plateau and know your form on the Oly Lifts is holding you back, consider the weightlifting program. Like it did for Mere, Zach, Dawn, and the others that followed it back in Jan, Feb, and March, it will take you to the next level too.
