090715 WEDNESDAY “Grace”
Darren makes the ‘Jumbotron’ shine.
Olympic weightlifting warm up: Push Jerks (aka “Power Jerks”), 3 sets of 10. Add weight each round if you feel comfortable. Take the weight out of the racks if you wish. Get coordinated, but don’t burn out. You’ll probably want to use jerks for the workout.
30 Clean and Jerks (really just from the ground to overhead).
135 is “Rx’ed”, but use 95 pounds, 65 pounds or broomstick as needed to maintain good form.

“A study of 226 families by Plymouth’s Peninsula Medical School found obese mothers were 10 times more likely to have obese daughters.
For fathers and sons, there was a six-fold rise. But in both cases children of the opposite sex were not affected.
The researchers believe the link is behavioural rather than genetic. . .
They found that 41% of the eight-year-old daughters of obese mothers were obese, compared to 4% of girls with normal-weight mothers. There was no difference in the proportion for boys.
For boys, 18% of the group with obese fathers were also obese, compared to just 3% for those with normal-weight fathers. Again, there was no difference in the proportion for girls. . .”

Olympic Weightlifting Clinic – Saturday August 1st at 11am.
We will be hosting a 2-hour clinic that will focus on the Olympic lift, the Clean (also $75 per current member, or $85 for non members). The clinic will be conducted by USA Weightlifting Club Coach Angela Lim who has been weightlifting for the past eight years and has trained under the coaching of Olympic Coach Jim Schmitz. In this intensive clinic, we will focus on improving the efficiency of the studentâ€™s lift. We will videotape and critique each participantâ€™s lift as well as discuss techniques and exercises to enhance Olympic lifting. Each participant will leave with a one or two day program to reinforce and work on the techniques that were reviewed. The Clinic is open to anyone who is a member of Diablo Crossfit and has a basic understanding of the clean, but wants to focus on technique and increase power. The Clinic is limited to only 7 participants to ensure personal attention and feedback. To sign up, contact Jeremy at email@example.com. Payment must be made in advance to ensure a spot in the clinic.
