Fourth of July Weekend – July 2 – 4, 2011

***Important Announcement***
MPH will be closed from Saturday, July 2 through Monday, July 4 for the Fourth of July holiday. We will resume a normal workout schedule on Tuesday, July 5.

Our Teams project keeps getting better. Beginning in the month of July, the Barbell: Weightlifting and Powerlifting Team and the Running Team will share their respective services—athletes from one team will, on occasion, have the opportunity to train with the other. Improved weightlifting, explosive and stabilization strengths will help our runners go faster, and better stamina and endurance, the preservation of technique and intensity over prolonged periods of time, will improve our lifters’ capacity in all domains—especially those lifters competing in CrossFit competitions. Additionally, Barbell workouts now include more skill-based work (i.e., gymnastics practice) to continue to cultivate body awareness and strength. We are not shifting our focus in either team; but instead, enhancing the service that we provide to help develop more well-rounded, event-ready athletes.

Rest—for the next three days.
