Next Cycle

Our next strength cycle will be focused on some basic strength movements to help out those who are entered in the Functional Strength Postal Comp. More info and entry form are HERE.

The Functional Strength CrossFit Weightlifting Postal Competition is aimed at any CrossFitter at any level that is able to perform a Snatch + Clean & Jerk and/or Back Squat & Deadlift. This is a friendly competition based around participation.

The purpose of the Postal is to encourage more of a focus on Olympic Weightlifting and Strength to improve your CrossFit. This is an opportunity to compare yourself to other CrossFitters by bodyweight and challenge yourself to achieve new personal bests.

Placings by : Body Weight vs Weight lifted (IWF Sinclair formula)

Division 2 – Powerlift Total

Back Squat + Deadlift = Total

Placings by: Body Weight vs Weight lifted (IPF Wilks formula)

SCORES

Affiliate’s will submit the Athletes best Snatch + Clean & Jerk = Total and/or Backsquat + Deadlift Total achieved during Monday 16th June – Saturday 21st June. Along with Bodyweight at the time of the lift. If lifts are performed separately across the week the lightest body weight (at the time of the lift) across the week will be acceptable to be submitted.

Sunday Reading

Tennis Elbow: What Is It, Do You Have It, and How Do You Treat It?

Tennis elbow – or lateral epicondylitis – is a common injury in many of the athletes who present with elbow pain. As an orthopedic surgeon, I have been treating this problem with greater frequency, especially in the cross-training and CrossFit athletic communities.

You Got a Lot of Freakin Problems

In fact, I can only think of two possible choices when this crap hits you. Here they are:

1) You can curl up in a ball and quit.

2) You can keep working and find a way to fight through it.

Feel free to chime in if you can think of any more. But that’s all I’ve been able to come up with after 25 years of weightlifting. When it’s all said and done, you just have to pick one of those options and go with it.

Personally, I think you should pick #2. But it’s your life. Do whatever you want.
