Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday and made our first 2015 Open Intramural workout such a success!!!
While clearly Saturday is the most AWESOME time to do the Оpen workout, it’s understandable that some people can’t make it and still want to participate in the Open. Therefore, in order to contain the EPIC EXCITEMENT (see video below) around the Open, we’re offering a few set times to come make up that week’s Open Workout, in case you absolutely cannot make the Saturday.
Having set times allows us to expect you, give full attention to the regularly scheduled class and have a second coach on hand to give you the best Оpen experience possible. Now who’s excited?!?
Here are the set times to give the Open Workout a shot:
Friday mornings at 6:00am
Friday evenings at 7:30pm
SATURDAY AT 10AM with the BBQ after – BEST OPTION!!!
Sunday at 11:00am
Monday morning at 6:00am
Back Squat 1-10-1-20-1-30
Use the heaviest weight you can for each set. Rest as needed between sets.
Finish with (time permitting): 3 rounds of GH Raise, 6-8 reps

Absolutely AWESOME times yesterday at our Intramural Open! 46 athletes plowed hard through 15.1 and 15.1a and showed some incredible effort and outstanding results! Thanks to the team Bacony Muscles for hosting the BBQ – the food was delicious! We are summarizing our Intramural team scores for this week and will post them shortly. In the meantime, the vanity scores are up on the Leaderboards on our Intramural Open page. Scroll all the way down.
We’ve added a new page to our website with the Daily Leaderboard displaying the results of the training for the current day. You can also go back and check the results of any days in the past. Daily Leaderboard.

Coaching Notes: The first Open workout has been announced, and it is as if we were training for it. Today, work up to a manageable set of three reps on the Jerk, off the rack. Don’t try to max out. Concentrate on perfect mechanics. Part B do at 85%, sustainable pace. Concentrate on as perfect of a push-up as possible. Rock and Roll! And have fun!
