After you watch the video be sure to check out the link below. This is a great article about muscular imbalances and the importance of symmetry.
On a side not I would like to say CONGRATS to Shelby, April, Lindsey C. and Shae for getting their name on the pull up board! I am very proud of you!!!
Everyone here at World Camp would like to say CONGRATS to Sam Widman for coming in 1st place in his age group in the Flint River 5k!
Remember that Saturday November 7th is OPEN HOUSE! 9am WOD and 6pm member get together. Feel free to bring anyone to the workout that morning!
Great job tonight everyone!!! It looked like you all are getting the hang of using your hips and shoulders as the main mode of force behind the clean. Here is a video that I found of the big guys going at it during an Olympic Clean and Jerk event. I would like you to notice how slow the bar is lifted until it gets to the "hang" position and then all of the force is going straight up. Remember, we will never perfect big moves like this but only get better with practice. Have a great rest of the day, see you soon!
By the way, to convert kg. to lbs. just multiply kilograms by 2.2.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Lake Park Elementary and talk with students in Mrs. Moore-Williams' class. We talked about fitness in general and what it meant to them. Don't tell the principal but we had a lot of fun too! Thank you for inviting me out to Lake Park and I hope to see everyone soon!
Meet Jay! Jay is an avid Camper and an "all or nothing" kind of guy. Monday morning Jay and I were looking for a PR on the Deadlift and to no surprise to me, we got one! Jay started out with a max Deadlift of 225lbs. and quickly found himself at 385lbs. After his 4th set of 5 I asked Jay what he would like to finish on. With as much sparkle in the eye as one can have at 6:30am complimented by a confident grin he replied, "405"! We proceeded to put on that 8th bumper and to both our disgust he bonked… "Well Jay, looks like you're at 385!" I said… A new PR by the way… Now, fast forward to 6:30pm the next day. I am in mid-session training a client and Jay bust in wearing his work attire, civilian clothes I like to call them. "I have been thinking about it all day, I got to get 405!" he says to me… After a couple warm up sets Jay loads up the bar with the same 8 bumpers as the day before. I had just enough time to snap this pic before the bar was at his hip and the lift was good!
"I will give everything I have and then I will find more within myself!"
Thank you to Jay and all the World Campers that give everything they have and then find more each day!

I hope to see you all here Saturday at 9am for the weekend warrior workout!
