Hello Everyone and Happy 4th of July!!

STRENGTH

Last Week, Max Week!!! Week 8 (8-week cycle). A lot of 1×1 aka 1RM aka 1 Rep Max. Whether you’re new or seasoned, knowing your 1 Rep Max on lifts is important because as you’ve probably scene on strength days we work off percentages of your 1 rep max. Please do not add pressure to lift heavy. Remember form over weight.

After this week we will have a 2-week break from a set strength and then we will begin our new cycle on July 26th. The next cycle will be more traditional lifting and Olympic will be mixed in throughout. During the 2 weeks off we will do basic lifting in the metcons to deload a little.

EQUIPMENT

DUMBBELLS: Please make sure to not drop them from over head unless it involves keeping you safe. The heads of the dumbbells are only attached by glue and the impact from dropping them may loosen the adhesive which may cause damage which will lead us to having to replace them

ROWERS: Please make sure when storing the rowers you push the display back and remove the handles from the cradle to let them rest at the base

He is a graduate of Notre Dame and obtained his MS degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Kentucky. He was a Captain in the United States Marine Corps. Coach Burgener is currently the head coach of CrossFit Weightlifiting. 

YOGA AND ROMWOD

Yoga with Bee started last week, we apologize for any registering issues and hope that did not deter you from attending. This is a free class to you and does not count against your sessions. We’d like to keep track of attendance so registration is mandatory. As mentioned in last mid-week email. From the Wodify App, go to PROGRAMS > YOGA to reserve a spot in class.

Meanwhile, as promised, we will have ROMWOD active by the end of the week for those who want some additional mobility work. ROMWOD will be on the TV upstairs and will be self-led. More on this mid-week.
