C’ville Strength Workout: Saturday 10/20

***IMPORTANT NOTE: the 2012 Old Dominion Classic Weightlifting Meet is at CrossFit RVA (900 W. Leigh St, Richmond) on Sunday (10/21) which you will hopefully attend to cheer on Jenni Lopez (lifting at 10am) and Billy McCarthy (lifting at noon)! Spectating is free of charge, but full of entertainment. The Billy bus is leaving from the gym at 7am if you want an early ride, but feel free to drive up separately later to come see singlets and spectacular sport. And after, we’ll eat.***

Dominate the barbell, not the other way around.
  • mobilize your shoulders — emphasize external rotation and rack position
  • snatch @75% 8×2 (1 minute rest between sets)
  • clean & jerk @75% 8×1 (1 minute rest between sets)
  • light prowler sprints 40m x5 (rest 2-3 minutes between sprints)
