Snatch Clinic this Saturday from 9:30am until 11:30am.

Run to Schmale rd.... upon your return you will have exactly 10 minutes to complete a 1 rep max Deadlift.
Before the run you may only warm up the barbell. You are not allowed to load the bar with any weight. You may stage some weight around the bar but be kind to others.
Post scores to the Whiteboard and to the Zen.



Clean 'bear' Complex:

7 rounds of:

Power Clean

Hang Power Clean

Hang Squat Clean

Squat Clean

3 times through is one round. Reps are touch and go and you are not allowed a 're-grip' or to drop the bar. You only have to do '3 reps' so the weight can be heavier, go as heavy as you are able. If you drop or re-grip it is considered a fail.

Have fun!



Today is the day we do Murph for Miller. We will be accepting donations for the Wheaton Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans. There is no cost to do the workout, but any and all donations are accepted. We will be starting the workout within 15 minutes after the class began. Please arrive early if you need any personal stretching or mobility to complete before the group warm up.


For time:

1 mile Run

100 Pull-ups

200 Push-ups

300 Squats

1 mile Run

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

This workout was one of Mike's favorites and he'd named it "Body Armor". From here on it will be referred to as "Murph" in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you've got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

Post time to the Zen.
