Dave Hudson has confirmed with Coach Whitney Rodden that she and Coach Martin will be running their seminars AT OUR FACILITY on Saturday, July 23rd. See the information below; if you are interested, please contact Coach Rodden directly at wtrodden@mnu.edu (also CC'd). Come this Friday, Dave will be publicizing this to other affiliates in the area.


 WHAT: A seminar bringing together coaches with real-world experience in training real sport athletes and coaches that compete themselves! We will instruct proper form for the Snatch, Clean, & Jerk and show proper progression for those lifts. Participants will receive, along with lecture time, actual "time under-the-bar" with these two outstanding coaches watching and correcting, bringing multiple points of view and methods of technique correction and improvement. Got a problem with your technique on a certain lift? Bring it here and get it fixed! You will not find this opportunity anywhere else, so come join us for some of the best coaching in Olympic Lifting in the Midwest!! Seating is limited so sign up now!!!

WHEN: Saturday July 23rd, 2011 Beginner Session: 9-11am Cost: $30 This session is for those that don't know how to do the lifts. We will go over the progressions on how to do the lifts properly and how to progress them. Advanced Session: 11:30am-1pm Cost: $25 This session is for those that know how to do the lifts, but need help being critiqued on specific weaknesses of the lift.

Im doing the lift seminar.

Kay said...

I've been sick this week and missed most of the WODs; no Iron Major Comp for me tomorrow, either. Once I'm healthy, I'll be doubling up on the WODs (yeah, that's what I say now).

Dave Hudson said...

Rich - as will I, and I know that LTC Mac has also signed up (for both seminars).

Steve A said...

I've attended Coach Rodden and Martin's lift training and benefited tremendously. It's well worth the time and $.


Edward said...

I'm in for the lift seminar - not sure what level of training differentiates the two, but I'd probably benefit from either one.

Dave Hudson said...

All interested in the Lifting seminar:

Please DO write Coach Rodden at her email (see the main blog post); just putting it on here does NOT put you in the class.

Ed, I'd say you're PROBABLY good for the "advanced" class. (You're probably somewhere in the middle between "Beginner" and "Advanced" according to the descriptions.)

Greg M said...

4.5 rounds for me, started with MUs. I scaled on both 135lbs for FS and used the bands for MU progressions.

Rich said...

I did 4 full rounds with 3 MUs. I scaled to 135 for front squats and did jumping muscle ups. Getting there on putting them together. I strung two very ugly MUs together this morning which is good seeing as I haven't even attempted a MUs in over 3 weeks. Good group this morning.

james said...

Kay - don't do double WOD's sister!! maybe thats why you are sick - "intensity trumps volume"

Welcome to Bland who joined us this morning - its great to have a Marine in the group (Yes Noah, I know you are a Marine ....but you fly planes)

5 rounds and 5 front squats rxed

Gary said...

5 rounds using the band for MU and dropping to 115# on the front squat after the first round made it obvious that my intensity would suffer at 155#.

Rich said...

James- I'm going to have to stick up for Noah on this one...he's still a Marine (who wined about us talking about SAMS, I know). So what does this say about your bias against those who fly??

Jacob Heppner said...

Decided to give in, and start posting. 3.5 rounds as Rx'd, MU's are hard on those shoulders. Smell like icy hot at work. I emailed C. Rodden and signed up for the lift seminar.

Greg M said...

Good to see you on the board Jake, I am with you James, is Rich really in the Army???

james said...

Jake - welcome brother.

Greg - don't do it man - he will throw the MITT card.

Its because Noah is in a weird space between Navy and Airforce ..... what is that place?

monroe said...

That weird space of Noah's is a part of the Department of the Navy...the Men's Department.

Just keep pitching those softballs.

At least my uniform does not include a feather. Seriously? A feather?! I guess that way you are ready for a cabaret at a moment's notice.

"Alright boys...and 1, 2, 3..."

Rich said...

Greg- see James' comment...thank you James.

Noah- nicely put, but to James' credit he probably had to catch the emu, eat it and then report when complete by making a telephone call with a string and boomerang. So, he earned the feather.

james said...

I can live with the feathers.

Rich, I have used telecommunications in the US ..I suspect you got our system for a good price second hand when we upgraded.

Dave Hudson said...

4.5 rounds for me.

Subbed 10 pullups, 10 pushups for the muscle ups; progressions or ring dips just aren't in the cards for my shoulder right now. Did the front squats Rxd at 155#. (And cleaning it from the ground vice taking it from the rack DEFINITELY gives a little extra motivation to go unbroken...1st and 3rd rounds were.)

Matt H said...

I know I did not make it to a lot of morning WODs after November but I guess I don't count as a Infantry Marine, Semper Fi
