The Thursday Barbell Club will be cancelled for the next few weeks, but we will let you know if and when it will be back!
This Saturday will be our Halloween party/WOD. Come dressed as your favorite CrossFitter, super hero, whatever! You don’t have to dress up, but if you do, make sure you can WOD in it or bring a spare change of clothes– no wardrobe malfunctions please! Oh, and feel free to bring some Halloween treats, Paleo friendly or otherwise.
Watch the video below for some really good cues that you’ll be getting from the coaching staff today while we improve your ability to push stuff away from you. Remember that the goal of all three of these lifts is the same; that is to move a weight from the shoulders to a supported position overhead. All that happens as we progress from one movement to the next is that we add more use of the hips to the equation. In the case of the Push Press vs. the Press it’s simply the dip and drive creating elevation on the barbell. In the case of the Push Jerk it’s the dip and drive just like in the Push Press but then a fast and aggressive press under followed by a stand.
