The first Outlaw camp in New Zealand is live! We’ll be in Auckland, New Zealand, January 9th-11th at Andfit CrossFit. If this is anything like past camps on the northern side of the Tasman Sea (that’s a reference to Australia for you Americans that have no clue what I mean), it could be sold out by the end of the day.
Also, just to sweeten things, I’ve just confirmed that Jared Fleming will be with us as Weightlifting Coach (and, of course, so we can ride motorcycles and have amazing adventures) for this date and a few others on the other side of the world.
Tomorrow we’ll be back to observation #3 from the 2014 Games. I know, you guys thought I wouldn’t finish. Nope, I’m gonna get all five, and I might even talk about Rich again (sans hyperbole, if that’s possible).
Quick update on the rest of the fall/winter Outlaw camps…
The first Outlaw Barbell camp in Nashville (Murfeesboro), Tennessee is sold out, and the second in Northern Virginia, has about five spots remaining.
The first three dates (Birmingham, UK – Newport, KY – Salt Lake City, UT) of the Science and Precision Series are very nearly sold out, with less than ten spots remaining. We will also have announcements about camp staff this week, and think you guys will be very excited.
3 Position Snatch (Floor, Hang, Power Position – do not drop bar): Max for the complex – 1X1@95%, 1X1@90%
1a) 4XME + 3 Strict HSPU (go to complete failure, then rest and complete 3 more reps each set) – if more than 15 on first set add a deficit, rest 90 seconds
1b) 4X5 Pause Front Squats @ Projected 5RM *see note* (STRICT 3 second pause in the bottom at absolute bottom depth) – rest 90 seconds
*Note: If your highest TRUE Max Effort (if you dropped the bar pre-absolute max because it was “heavy” this is not a true ME) set last week was below 5, work at 60-65% of 1RM. If it was 7 or greater, work at 75%. If it was 10 or greater you probably need to test your 1RM again.
