In June we are going to do a dozen or so of the WODs that were used in regional qualifiers throughout the world. June also marks the start of our 10 week cycle of Monday night O-Lifting at 6 O’Clock. It should prove to be a great month with a lot of fun WODs.

The first one from the Qualifiers was from the Mid-Atlantic Regionals which took place in Virginia



3 Rounds For Time
10 Deadlifts 275/185
50 Double Unders

Here are the movement standards that the athletes and ourselves are expected to maintan. The other WODs from this qualifier are explained in the video but the only one we are doing tomorrow is the deadlift double under. The fastest qualifier time was 2:52!

    Partial squats are never good. They neglect the hips and hamstrings. When an athlete stops above parallel His knee joints are forced to halt the Downward momentum. But once the athlete goes below parallel that stress is transferred to the more
    Powerful groups in the hips, hamstrings, And adductors. Full squats keep all these muscle groups
    Proportionately strong.
