We had TONS and Grace PR’s on Wednesday! And a bunch of Clean and Jerk PR’s following Grace! Fantastic effort and training is paying off in faster times and big lifts. Even when exhausted.
Schedule Change: Starting next week, approved the 5:30am Class will be on Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri. No 5:30am class on Wednesday. We will continue this schedule until the zombie apocalypse. Or until we decide to change it again.
With this schedule, we will try to do a weekly express class on Tuesday nights at 7:30pm.
Due to coaches traveling, there will be no 5:30am class on Friday.
Wallball Challenge is up to 10 reps.
GHD Challenge update. I finished a set of 36 yesterday. Honestly, I cannot remember doing more reps than this unbroken. I paused for the first time at 32 reps, caught my breath, and did 4 quick singles. This was probably my best set of the challenge. I really focused on pushing back hard on the way up, so the soles of my shoes make physical contact with the stop plate (engaging with the hamstrings). I find when I rely on pulling against the foot pads (I do this more when fatigued) my reps get slower and my legs get really gassed out. I have not been doing back or hip extensions, but the benefits of the GHD have been great for me, so I need to start working this in.
