Beast Mode + 4th of July Schedule

The schedule for 4th of July is... the same as any other Tuesday because I live to serve and also have no social life. Not sure which came first, to tell you the truth. Probably the latter. Anyways, hope you guys can make it in. If not, catch you on the flipside.

 


 

Last Thursday we did another max effort day using tempo. So far I've liked how it has looked and hopefully it ends up showing is better form and pr's lifts.

Two of the most impressive athletes were Josh Ellsworth and Ashley Fry. Josh is Josh, so one day his form will look great and the next you'll just shake your head (as Reggie and Arlene do the same). This was one of those days where you liked what you saw. He topped out the day at 115-lbs doing 3 reps (although the video below shows a set where he did 2 reps at the same weight). Either way, the form is what we were looking for and it was on point.

On the other hand, Ashley Fry has that Mrs. Carey-esque ability to use facial expressions to make lifts look harder than they actually are; from the neck-down, it looks anywhere from casual to decently challenging, then from the neck-up it looks like she saw Jacob shirtless. Here is Fry's second-to-last set with 155-lbs.

Still, 155 is a legit lift... and she didn't end there. Fry topped out with a 1 RM tempo at 165-lbs. Great job to both of the kiddos!

Chocolate Milk is Back!

Ladies and gents, our fridge has been stocked with good ol' Costco-brand chocolate milk. One dollar a piece. Good for post-workout stuff, or David Saporito's pathetic excuse for a breakfast. Either way, make sure to grab some while they're in stock!

Also, reminder that the team workout is tomorrow at 9 am for both parents and kids. 11 am mobility on Sunday for both parents and kids.

In this week's episode of Arlene Doesn't Approve of the Warmup...

... she does not approve of the warmup.

And also, Mrs. Fitz went to Five Guys Burgers and Fries for an unsuspecting visit and whom should she run into?

We want burgers!

State of the Website Summer 2017 + Schedule Reminder

There will be a few new features coming up on the website starting next week: First, VJ has the next installment of his Published Paper Politics mini-series - this one about the peer review process and motivation. Also, I am excited to announce that Rachael Kroll is doing a mini-series on her training with her foot thing. The first part has been emailed to me and I am pleasantly surprised both with how well she writes and how honest she came off. Look for that on Monday.

Every Saturday we will post our Athlete of the Week sometime in the evening. The prize for this award is a few words from me and jealousy and envy among your peers. As with most things, this is heavily based on attendance, so show up!

Athlete Profiles and the Exercise and Demos pages are almost up to date. I'll do a post on those soon, but Bubs has been coming up big for me on those!

Finally, in previous Summer's we've done anywhere from 2-3 posts per day most of the time. We'll probably back off that a bit, as I'm sure you've been able to tell. If you could manage to pick up the comment game - especially on the new kid/new graduate posts - that would be appreciated. I'll work on getting good posts up that are discussion worthy like the Polls or some theory stuff to help this along. Any time we have new people I always take them through a tour of the website and encourage them to keep up. Put yourself in their shoes: if you are brand new and see a video of your first rope climb on the site along with 7 or 8 people showing their appreciation, it would definitely make you feel more at home. Plus with the babies, this will be going to their parents.

So again, if you guys can make an effort for that, it would be appreciated. As an incentive, here's a naked picture of Jacob.

Wednesday/Weekend Summer Schedule

Okay kids, so after a few phone calls and asking around, we are making a few changes for team workout/mobility times. Starting this weekend, here is what they will look like:

Saturday

9 am (team workout - kids only)

11 am (babies)

 

Sunday

10 am (mobility)

11 am (parents team workout)

 

Wednesday

10 am

5:30 pm

I know the 9 am is a little on the early side, but it is really the best time that will help the kids who are working late morning/early afternoon. It also helps get a babies session into a good spot - which is very important for this Summer.

It should also be noted that the parents are allowed to come on Sunday at 9 to mobilize during the kids team workout session should they so desire.

Summer Schedule Modification

We are making a few slight adjustments to the schedule for the Summer 2017. First, we're keeping the 4:30, 5:30, and 6:30 pm sessions as they are. Not moving them back a half hour. Secondly, the 10 am session will not be starting until the following week (June 19) due to most schools not getting out until then. So next week will look like the following:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

9 am

11 am

4:30 pm

5:30 pm

6:30 pm

 

Wednesday

9 am

5:30 pm

 

The weekend team workout times will be posted some time next week. First theme workout will be June 24. As is tradition, the first one is also a new one. Last year was Finding Dory; any guesses this time around?

Memorial Weekend Schedule + Summer Email Vault

The session times for this weekend are as follows:

Sunday

12 noon (team workout)

1 pm (babies)

 

Monday

9 am

5:30 pm

 


 

The Champions Club Summer 2017 Official Signup will be posted and emailed out on Tuesday. If you are new this time around, a tradition started with Connor Moore in 2013 to respond in a rather creative way...

This, of course, grew into some very eccentric and complicated messages from the past few years. Morrow, Arlene, Fry, and an unfortunate gentleman mysteriously named "Juan" Junkin who had a cat in his pants all chimed in with their replies.

And then, of course, there was Joe Wonsil, who replied not by email, but by YouTube.

Get your replies ready to go by Tuesday!
