Maxing out

DSC_0232

This week we will be testing our 1RM’s for the Deadlift, Squat and presses.  DO NOT expect enourmous gains as we have only done essentially 2 weeks of 5’s and 3’s.  This week we are also going to be moving from the ground as far as the OLY lifts are concerned.  Now, as the range of motion goes up (from the ground to the shoulders) the reps will go down (2’s, 1’s) and the weights go up (-75%).  As these weights go up I (and the weight of the barbell) will demand you to be moving under the barbell.  Power cleans and snatches have their place but, there is no place for them when working at heavy weights.  As the weeks go on full movement will be the standard.

Today:

Back Squat 1Rm

Then

125 KB swings (70,53) EMOM do 5 burpees

*complete 100 banded good mornings before you leave the gym.

Water donations

We have such a wonderful community here at CFW. I know many of us would love to expand that to be helpful to our larger community.

One excellent organization that does that is Woodbridge Homeless Outreach. This is a completely grass-roots, volunteer driven organization that is helping people and changing lives. You can follow their work by liking their Facebook page at http://facebook.com/WoodbridgeHomelessOutreach.

One of their most important outreaches is trying to provide our most basic need: water. We’ll be collecting bottled water at CFW October 17th  through October 31st to help our less fortunate neighbors. Just bring your bottled water to the gym and we’ll get it to Woodbridge Homeless Outreach!

 

Thank you for your help!

Week of 3’s

DSC_0144

This week starts a week of progression to testing your 1 RM’s in lifts.  Also, next week we are going to be moving from the hang down to the floor in the OLY lifts.  It’s going to take some more time before we are going to test the OLY 1Rm.  There is more chance for error when there is a longer range of motion for the bar to travel.  Hopefully, you’re going to see some good progress in movement and strength along the way.  Be patient with the OLY lifts, they’re tough.

Also, if you’re interested in the Powerlifting Seminar it starts tomorrow.  E-mail info@crossfitwoodbridge.com to get into the class of your choice.

Today:

Hang Clean 3Rm (from the top of the knee)

1 set at 95%, 1 set at 90%

then

3 Rounds

30 KB Swings

30 Wall balls
