Jeremy putting in extra work on his deadlift after class on Monday. Jeremy comes in early and stays late for extra work after almost every class. This hard work has shown solid improvements in his metcon times as well as a 15 pound increase in his deadlift in less than two weeks! Congrats Jeremy and keep working hard.

Don’t forget about Relay for Life!


5 rounds for time:
20 weighted lunges ( 95 / 65 ) – weight is to be held in front rack position
20 pull ups
20 kb swings ( 24 / 16 )

    T – I’m not sure if there was ever a doubt! You’re absolutely a fire-breathing beast – great job bro!

    On a side note, I forgot that I committed to go to the Tuesday practice round of the Masters a few months back and just had two passes dropped on my desk to attend. I don’t know if anyone is interested in taking these off of my hands ($36 per ticket) but if you are, let me know. You’re welcome for the advanced notice as well.

    Christina –

    I am interested in the bison. I buy mine at HT (ground) and love it, so I will want it ground. Will you be at the gym Saturday?

    Thanks for the congrats guys. Scott is writing up a review of the weekend that we will post tomorrow.

    The meet was a blast. Admittedly, I was lucky to be able to lift much lighter weights than I anticipated and still win. My opener snatch was easy. It was heavier than the other fellas’ third lifts. That was a good thing b/c I totally blew my 2nd and 3rd snatch attempts. Funny, but it worked out.

    My shoulder injury was the greatest concern in the clean and jerk. I can still clean 135-40kg (300-310lbs), but my shoulder disallows a pr jerk. I was prepared to hit 130kg (almost 290) if I had to. But again, things were in my favor and I only had to hit 119kg (262lbs), an easy lift, for the win. My shoulder was VERY happy.

    Scott rocked it. He nailed his lifts with more speed and aggression than I’ve seen from him yet. I’m not going to elaborate any further. I don’t want to steal his thunder. His take on things will be up on the site tomorrow.

    A big thanks to Chris Bullard (CF Oly Cert Coach) for coaching tips and congrats to him. Chris secured 1st place in the 40-45 year old / 85kg class.

    Thanks to Steve Lewis, Emory University’s weightlifting coach, for meet and advice/coaching and a hell of a exciting competition.

    Good fun.

    Mike Radley will be running it on Mondays so please respect and listen to his guidance.

    This “club” is going to grow into something spectacular! I KNOW IT!

    Ladies… BJJ is one of the best choices for your own self defense. You too are welcome on the mat and with the instruction and leadership in the Club from Aaron (Sensei) you will quickly. It’s a very practical and applicable skill set to have on the street.

    Give it a try.

  11. Christina K says:

    Scott-I am not sure if I will be in on Saturday yet. If you want to email me how many pounds of ground bison you want and either leave a check/cash at the front or I can get it from you on Sunday. Thanks! 🙂
