Barbara K Goes To Work On Deadlifts During "JacintoStorm"
Happy Birthday to resident "Wine Guy" Brian S! Join Brian at the 3rd CFSBK Wine Wasting coming up. Only 4 Spots left!
There is No Teaser Class this weekend due to the Tough Titsday Powerlifting Meet!
CFSBK Has purchased the following equipment recently:
- 55lb Rubber Hex Dumbbell, 1 Pair
- 60lb Rubber Hex Dumbbell, 1 Pair
- 65lb Rubber Hex Dumbbell, 1 Pair
- 12" Steel Plyo Boxes, 3 Boxes
- Burgener and Rippetoe Men's Bars, 4 Bars
- 16kg Kettlebell, 2 Bells
- 20kg Kettlebell, 2 Bells
- Rogue Steel Plate Rack Storage, 3 Racks
We purchased the DBs to help bridge the gap between our 50lb and 75lb DBs. These can be used for heavy pressing, rowing, shrugs, snatching and farmer's carries. The three 12" plyo boxes were purchased for box squatting days which often uses up all available boxes and causes people to have to stack bumpers. We also got 4 more B&R bars to replace a few barbells that are in rotation but are warped or don't spin. The 16kg and 20kg bells help round out the most popular bells for large classes. Finally, the steel plate rack storage will live between the platforms and accompany the 940lbs of plate we recently purchased. Once the equipment comes we're going to update the platform area to be more user-friendly.

DOT Looking For Help
Does anyone know anyone who might be interested in an internship at the NYC Dept of Transportation? Coach Nick is looking for independent, detail-oriented people to work with their City Bench program. It's indoor/outdoor – a lot of fieldwork, but also office work. It's a great opportunity for aspiring urban planners/designers and landscape architects – having public-sector experience in those fields is a major plus, and NYC DOT is one of the best public agencies in the country. Candidates can be grad or undergrad, in school or not. The internship is unpaid, but Nick's group exposes interns to a lot and they have a great experience. He needs people who can commit to 20–40 hrs a week, for at least three months. Please forward people to him at npeterson [at] dot.nyc.gov.
