What’s up everybody, Lots of exciting things happening around the gym. Saw some huge PRs last weekend with our powerlifters. Seeing some great performances from the CrossFit Open…….and even better, it isn’t winter anymore, and with that in mind, I would like to make an announcement
You may have noticed that Waylon and Myself constructed a beautiful, practical, and all around amazing lifting platform out back in the parking lot. It is in honor of this great accomplishment that I would like to announce: DARKSIDE STRENGTH 1ST ANNUAL RYAN & WAYLON MEMORIAL WEIGHTLIFTING CHAMPIONSHIPS (we are just going to go ahead and start a memorial so it will be easier to keep it going after we are gone)
We are going to rope off the entire back parking lot the morning of May 19th (saturday after the Derby) set up some chairs and lift some weights in some beautiful sunshine, probably grill some burgers, and have an awesome time.
The lifts contested will be the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk. Each competitor will have 3 attempts at a max snatch and 3 attempts at a max clean & jerk.
The power versions of the lift will be accepted (meaning that you don’t have to squat it)
We will use the USAW weight classes and will weigh in the morning of the competition
You do not have to wear a singlet, but if you want to then it is cool with me
Top Male and Top Female (best BW/Total ratio) receive a free month (coaches can lift but are ineligible)
Top in each weight class receive and autographed DARKSIDE STRENGTH 1ST ANNUAL RYAN & WAYLON MEMORIAL WEIGHTLIFTING CHAMPIONSHIPS Tank Tops
Registration is $25 and will include a
DARKSIDE STRENGTH 1ST ANNUAL RYAN & WAYLON MEMORIAL WEIGHTLIFTING CHAMPIONSHIPS Tank Top
and a program that will be able to be done in any of the classes that will start 5 weeks out from the competition
anyone can compete, so if you are interested then let me know and I will get you set up
