Happy New Year every one… I’m not huge on inspirational quotes, marketing ploys, gimmicks, etc. In the real world there isn’t much that can overcome good old-fashioned work and dedication, and a lot of what I program is based on that. So this year I would like us to create a motto for the upcoming season representing what we stand for, believe and feel for this new year ahead of us.
Be apart of Team IronGrip family. If you have any suggestions feel free to email, post, facebook, etc… As a crew we’ll discussed our options heading into the new year.
Clean – 2 position Clean (High Hang/low hang below the knee) – AHAP *The point is not to go heavy but to work proper positioning, foot work, and speed under the bar.
Front Squat: 5×3 @80-90% of your 1RM Every 90 seconds (Start your sets at 0:00/1:30/3:00/4:30/6:00)
Start @80% and move up if it feels fast. Whether you increase, stay the same, or decrease from a higher weight for the rest of them should be based on feel.
CrossFit Games Open 14.2 and 15.2 (AMRAP – Reps)
I love coaching this sport. This site began, back in March 5,2015 because I wanted to help others get stronger, get faster and achieve their goals, and I wanted to test my concepts. The fact that you would share in my ways is completely unexpected, and has been a massive amount of fun. As a matter of fact, working with and for you guys has been a massive amount fun. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this is a job that happened by accident, and it’s the best job in the world.
We have not, and never will, master the exact formula for success in this sport. However, we will never stop trying, and every day that comes and goes we know we are getting closer. Just like the hours upon hours that you all spend with the cold Iron in your hands, trying to achieve the skill to add numbers to your PRs—we will be reviewing our growing sources of data, staring at the “Coach’s Eye” endlessly, bugging Colin Burns (jtsstrength) and Danny McDermott (USAW Senior Coach) with questions, and doing anything possible to continue to bring those of you who have given us your sweat and trust, the best possible chance for success in the sport.
Here are some key dates you need to know:
Open registration begins – January 14th
16.1 – February 25th – 29th
16.2 – March 3 – 7
16.3 – March 10 – 14

I am more than excited for 2016. Feeling refreshed, renewed, and dedicated to all of you, our athletes, kicking a whole new level of ass.
Keep in mind the extra piece doesn’t always belong at the end. Slide it in where it makes sense. E-mail your photos and videos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snatch – 5×3 @80-90% Every 90 seconds (Start your sets at 0:00/1:30/3:00/4:30/6:00) *Drop and reset each rep. Start @80% and move up if it feels fast. Whether you increase, stay the same, or decrease from a higher weight for the rest of them should be based on feel.
Shoulder Press – 15 min to establish a 1RM
3 rounds of:
10 Front Squats 205/135# (no racks)

The order you see won’t be the same for everyone. If you struggle with back to back conditioning pieces, play with the order to maximize intensity. Keep in mind that any extra piece doesn’t always belong at the end. Slide it in where it makes sense… even if its the next day. E-mail your photos and videos to email@example.com. We want to hear from/see you guys.
