Today at 10am we have the first of our Sunday Strength Sessions.

There will be an Olympic Weightlifting option, a Powerlifting option, as well as a CrossFit workout. You can also use this time as an Open Gym Session, just make sure you have a plan. Strength Session runs from 10am to Noon.

Open Gym Rules

•Have a plan.
•Know what workout you want to do or lift you want to work.
•The coach is there to help but this is not a personal training session.
•Work your “goats”.

Sunday Reading

Your brain is a weapon, and it can either work for you or against you. As you build up experience over time, it becomes easier to make it work for you. As I always say, you’re welcome to disagree with me if you want. But you need to remember that I’m a genius, so you’re rolling the dice if you don’t go along with what I say. Now pardon me while I go have a Schlitz.

If you Google the word “strong” there are tons of definitions, but the first one that came up when I searched was this:

Strong (adj): having the power to move heavy weights or perform other physically demanding tasks

…so let’s go with that. I also searched “skinny,” and this is what I got:

Skinny (adj): very lean, thin or emaciated

Both words are descriptive, but they certainly don’t refer to the same thing — one is about what we can do and the other is about what we look like. While appearances can be indicative of our physical abilities, things aren’t always what they seem from the outside.

Squat Therapy: 4 Drills That Will Improve Your Squat

The words seem to strike a perfect balance between the fact this is not going to be a comfortable situation and the fact that they will come out feeling a lot better. Squat Therapy is about getting comfortable with the uncomfortable – embracing your inner squat.
