Push jerks (115,75)
Next Saturday is the mobility workshop with our fav. PT Luke from 10-1130ish. We will open the gym at 9am so you can come wod before if you want- you can also wod after. There is only 2 spots left for treatment with Luke- It is $80 if this is your 1st treatment or $50 if you are already one of his clients. If you are wondering who this guy is and why we are so excited to bring him to gym here is some info: we have had 7 people from our gym see him for treatment for various issues, he has given us all different stretches and exercises to do that can help with our problems. He has helped Lisa with her hand, Shelley and I with our hips, Erin and Colby with their back and Chris with his shoulder/neck. He does CrossFit and knows the movements that we do and what muscles they activate and use.
Pictures below are from this weekend at the Oregon Battle of the Boxes. What a great competition weekend. There are more photos uploaded on the Dragonfire Facebook page so go check them out! Weekend highlights: All 4 lifters pr’d their lifts on Sat. Marah got a 190 C&J, Chy got a 140 C&J, Hung got a 180 Snatch and Steve got a 220 snatch! Sarah, Steve, Marah and Chris moved heavy atlas stones like they were just some big rock chips. Chy figured out how to connect multiple du’s while in a wod, Curt set an amazing pace with his burpees and bar mu’s that led the team to a 3rd place finish in wod 3. Chy, Marah and I were showing how girls can rock the handstand pushups. Sarah and Chris showed their amazing leg strength by pumping out almost 100 front squats between them the 1st wod. Whew I could go on and on! AMAZING weekend and to top it all off team Curt, Steve S., Marah, & Michele tied for 4th place after 5 wods, not bad for Curt and Steve’s 1st competition!

In lieu of a wod tonight- we are going to run a 2 hour lift clinic for you. It will go over the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. It will be material that we wanted to share from our lift camp this weekend from American open weightlifting champion Spencer Arnold. It will be hands on so we will do a dynamic warmup all together then start lifting- going over PVC warmup technique then working with the bar. The gym will still open at 4 and close up around 730.
Do not show up for open gym at 4 or 5 cause no one will be there! New time is 6 to 8 on Tuesdays!
Wednesday we will run a lifting workshop from
5-8. We hope all of you can make it! We will go over what we learned this weekend and do drills and lifts. Get ready to improve and understand your snatch and clean and jerk better!
