As many of you know, Janel will soon be leaving us for a year on a military deployment. We want to let her know how much we love having her as part of our gym family, and how much we appreciate her service to our country!
Join us on Tuesday, October 6th from 6-8pm at the Mackenzie River Pizza in the Heights (back room) for a no-host dinner to help us give her a good send-off.
Here you have it, the complete list of possible workouts for the competition. All weights and scalings are listed, so you can figure out exactly what division you should be in.
Just so you know, the draw of the workouts on the competition day will not be completely random – if we do Cindy, we will not also do Angie. If we do Grace we will not also do Isabel. We will make sure it is a balanced event.
For those of you who are not from our gym – you may notice that our women’s weights are a little bit heavier than the norm. We started out back before there was an “accepted women’s Rx.” We scale women’s weights at roughly 75% of the men’s weight, or the closest number that is easily loadable on the bar. On the wallballs, our women’s Rx is 16#, and everybody throws to 10 feet. If that’s different than what you are used to, you might want to do a few WOD’s at those weights to get used to it.
You can also find this list in pdf form on the “Competition” page.
Just One Move
10 Deadlifts @ 55% max
7 Bench Press @ 55% max
Continue until you cannot get all of the reps done in the given minute or 15 minutes, whichever occurs first.
Just throwing it out to the masses . . .
Do we want to keep the Friday BBQ going this week or should we shut it down?
I know everyone is getting busy with kids in school.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
Robin Wicks just did a check up on Deez Nut’s endowment. He is the reply she received:
The Deez Nut’s Endowment now stands at $14,296.13. The fund generated $426.99 in interest earnings. We perform this calculation at the end of each fiscal year. Fifty percent of the interest earnings go back into the fund for growth and fifty percent is made available for patient use.
You might remember your group decided to also place $776 dollars into a fund for immediate use. We did get one request for $91.92 that was distributed to a patient in need leaving $684.08 so when combined with the interest earnings above – we have $1,111.07 that can be distributed to Type I diabetics in need.
I will remind our diabetes case managers of the fund and the current amount available so it is top of mind as they assist our patients.
Just thought I would let everyone know how things are going with the fund!
