1-2 Finish: Karen Pierce and Judy McElroy finish atop the podium for Team CrossFit Central – #CCPride

Great weekend all-around.

We had 5 athletes at Oktoberfest Obliteration in Houston, and all finished very strong:

Karen Pierce: 1st: RX
Judy McElroy: 2nd: RX
Brandon Mayernik: 6th: RX
Chelsea Ross: 11th: RX
Jeff McElroy: 25th: Scaled

These athletes have worked very hard, and we are very proud of where they are, where they have come from, and where they are going.

At Saturday’s training session, 4 lifts stand out in my mind:
  1. Melissa Feliz hits a triple-digit snatch. It’s been a while, and she finally earned it. Well-done Melissa.
  2.  Kelly Childers PRs her Snatch and her Clean & Jerk. I think she was the only athlete to PR both.
  3.  Randy Atkinson Snatches 225#. Two wheels.
  4.  Jeff Vanlandingham Snatches 245# and Cleans 315# (needs to work on the jerk). Three wheels.
I caught two on video:

Randy Snatches 225# (PR)

Jeff Cleans 315# (PR)

Week 16 Training: 13.10.21


A. 5×1: 2 Cleans + 1 Jerk – AHAP – E90S

Notes: This is 2 cleans followed by 1 jerk. Clean, drop, clean & jerk.


B1. 3×3: Clean Pull @ 105% – E60S

B2. 3×3: Push Press – AHAP – E60S

Notes: Use straps on the clean pulls. The push presses must be touch and go. Reload as you bring the bar down and explode directly into your next rep. If you have to catch the bar to reset, the set will not “technically” count.


C. 20-min AMRAP:

-200m SandBag Run
-200m Run
-200m Dual Farmer Carry @ 24/16
-20 Burpee to Plate


D1. 3×10: Barbell Bicep Curls – Light to Moderate Weight (DO NOT GO HEAVY)
D2. 3xME: Toes to Bar – DO NOT RIP

    Since it’s now after midnight and I’m still slaving away on this lab report with the exam tomorrow, I’d say it’s a safe bet I won’t be able to get anything out of a 5:30 training session. This missing workouts thing is getting old.

2:00 of behind the scenes training gold @karhustrength.
This is what it’s like to train with us. As I was filming some of the max lifts, I decided to just shut up and record what was going on around the space. As candid as it gets.
Action. Commentary. Makes. Misses. Sometimes things get emotional. This is how we train. Hard and fun. Serious and silly. Friends and family. I LOVE IT ALL.
As a coach, I am incredibly blessed to have the athletes I do under my care. As a gym owner, I am equally as blessed to have the community of Bears at CrossFit Jääkarhu.
