Jeremy Fisher and Sal Manzo will be representing CrossFit South Brooklyn at the North East Qualifier for the 2009 CrossFit Games. To compete at the Games in California, they must place within the top 5 out of almost 200 competitors from 7 states. They're going to need lots of community support both in class and at the Qualifier in May. Lets all be sure to encourage their efforts as they continue their training!
Dutch Lowy Training Seminar at CrossFit Norcal
Later this month we have the pleasure of hosting Dutch Lowy's Trainer Development Seminar. Margie and myself attended this seminar at CF NorCal last January and came away with some really great ideas and different perspectives on running an affiliate. The seminar is based on Dutch's experiences traveling across the country observing various programs and differentiating between what works and what does not. Dutch spends considerable time on proper programming, scaling and the differences between training someone to compete in CrossFit versus someone just looking to improve their health and longevity. You'll also get to apply your skills by programing workouts for different objectives, leading small groups and putting together class outlines. This is a great seminar for anyone interested in or already training other individuals, Level 1 trainers who want to take the Level 2 and anyone who just wants a broader perspective on CrossFit style strength and conditioning.

A comprehensive warm-up is an essential component of any workout session. At SBK we spend anywhere from 12-15 minutes at the beginning of each class warming up, prepping the movement patterns and talking about how to tackle the WOD. Last Thursday before "Grace" we talked about some mechanical properties of materials and how they related to our workouts. Can you remember why it's important to "squeeze" instead of "jerk" the bar off the floor?
