09/01/2017: Kettlebell Goblet Squats, Push Press, Deadlift!

Workout #242 of 365 (2017)


Warm-up: Run or Jump Rope for 2-3 minutes. Dynamic Stretching  followed by 10 Pushups, 10 Squats, and 30 Jumping Jacks

08/27/2017: Sunday Getups and Swings!

We spent some time on Friday working on Ryan's swing. We found that adding a little but more weight cleaned up some of his mechanics. Here he is during his final set of 10 with the 40kg bell. It's still a work in progress, but it's definitely better! Keep up the good work, Ryan!

It's Time to Register for the Tactical Strength Challenge!

Twice a year, the Smugs family gathers to test our strength in the StrongFirst Tactical Strength Challenge.  We'll be getting together again on October 28th to compete and support one another as we participate in three events in our own gym.  First, all participants will have three opportunities to complete a max weight deadlift.  Second, all male competitors will complete a max effort set of pull-ups, while female competitors will complete either pull-ups or a flexed arm hang.  The last event is a favorite--  each competitor will complete as many kettlebell snatches as possible in five minutes.  

Rules and details are available HERE

The Smugs Fitness community is strong in both physical strength and in spirit, and we are certain we'll have another fantastic event this fall.  We encourage athletes of all ability levels to consider participating.  Please speak to your Smugs Fitness coach about training for the event.
