There is going to be a competitors meeting Saturday, April 27th, upstairs at 9:30am. This meeting is for all current competitors and any current member who might be interested in joining the comp track. If you are thinking about competing in the sport of CrossFit in 2019 or even 2020 then this track of programming is built to help you reach your goals.
Our competitors always take part in normal Port classes but are programmed an extra strength, an additional skill or more conditioning work daily with the purpose of exposing you to all the challenges one might face in a CrossFit competition. We typically workout 5 days a week with rest days on Thursdays and Sundays and we have a competitors slot at 10am on Saturdays where we typically do our partner workout for the week. The added volume is no more than 30 to 45 minutes and can be anything from lifting to gymnastics, conditioning to skill work. If this might be something you’d like to add in please make sure you carve out 30 minutes to attend this meeting.
If you have any questions before Saturday, don’t be afraid to ask. Find me in the gym, or shoot me a message.

Then, dynamic mobility as a class
Posterior chain prep
Sumo deadlift – 5×3; AHAP. You can build but you must start heavy and finish heavier.
Sumo stance is such a cool way to lift because it does a number of different things. By changing the placement of our feet to a much wider version, it allows us to maintain a much more upright torso. By keeping our torso more upright from the very beginning it puts a lot less stress on the lower back and prevents a ton of shearing forces on the spine and erectors. The sumo stance also helps some with mobility restrictions to get into a much more preferred position. So make sure you nail down where the feet and hands should be before getting to heavy. Once you have the idea of it, build to a heavy 3 and complete 5 sets at that weight
5 deadlifts at 80% of your 1RM
*315/205# is the heaviest weight that this bar should be.
Thinking about stimulus here, this deadlift should be mighty heavy in order for you to find that right pace. Too heavy and you’re going to take too long on the bar, too light and you’ll be done before most people get out of their second round. Think about the bar being between 70 and 80%. Given that it is going to be a total of 4 sets of 5, we should really try to stick to this percentage. Meaning to Rx this WOD your deadlift should be between 400/275# and 450/305#.
