Whether you spent the weekend at United Barbell learning Oly from the Grandfather of Weightlifting and the California Strength team or glued to the television watching the CrossFit Games, we hope you spent the weekend getting fired up to get back in the gym, set some goals and get to work!
As you look over your goals, ask yourself "Are you taking advantage of UB to your best ability?" If you want to get better at gymnastics - are you going to open gym and asking? If you want to be more mobile, are you coming to the gym early, or taking advantage of coach Kristin's "mobility express" on Friday nights? If you want to work on other skills, are you getting the extra time and attention you need?
We want to give you all as much support as possible in achieving your goals. With this in mind, we are proud to be announcing our partnership with California Strength in releasing The Barbell WOD Hour.
For those of you who have been researching a separate strength program and feel a little overwhelmed by all the options out there, the Barbell WOD is a 1 hour, 3x/week holistic strength program developed for CrossFitters. The program is periodized around the CrossFit competitive calendar (Open, Regionals, Games) and is meant to simultaneously develop foundational squat and pressing strength while also developing competency and strength in Olympic lifting. This programming is meant to enhance your current CrossFit regimen while focusing your strength training. While we are not creating a Barbell WOD class, we are creating an informal BarbellWOD Hour and releasing the structure this week. If you want access, the program is online -- complete with online lift/workout tracking, community forums and soon there will also video analysis from some of power and Oly's finest instructors (who wouldn't want their squats watched by Mr. Mark Bell himself?!). Have we peaked your interest? The site goes live this afternoon at 2 ... Check it out!
