 Vincent is someone you want on your team.

Alec and Deb's Shoulder Seminar

This weekend's course will include some basic anatomy.  Why not get a head start on the educational process and learn the three bones which comprise the shoulder girdle? This picture identifies the Clavicle, Scapula and Humerus of the right arm.  Here you can see how those same three bones sit on the rib cage.

Try to locate these three bones on yourself:

Your Clavicles are the horizontal bones that sit just below your neck and reach across your chest
Your Humerus is simply your upper arm bone
Your Scapulas are the two "pizza" shaped bones on your upper back

This Seminar is SOLD OUT
Looking forward to seeing everyone that signed up this Sunday, August 2nd from 1:30-4:00pm

Our "SQUAT OFF" with CrossFit NorCal will be held this Saturday!  Athletes will have three attempts to find a 1 rep max on the Barbell Squat.  Both high bar and low bar squats are legal, the athlete must simply break parallel and return to full extension with the bar on their back. We'll be talking about 1RMs and practicing the movement all this week.

Shane gets first crack at the wall

SBK<3BKB
Last Friday, we were invited to one of the First Ascent parties by Brooklyn Boulders owner, Stephen Spaeth.  The parties are their way of thanking members who purchased year-long memberships prior to the facility opening by giving them first access to areas of the gym as they finish.  Even with only one top-roping wall and the bouldering area open for climbing we had an absolute blast and climbed for hours.  The staff and volunteers on hand were super helpful and friendly and the place is just downright BANANAS.   It's like Disney World opening up down the street from you. Please check these guys out, I can foresee countless SBK outings to BKB!
