Competing in Weightlifting : A Coach Bud Joint, and Other Miscellania (Word?)

Here’s more words from Coach Bud Henry.

(Shout out Coach Bud for big help with the Bike deliveries. I couldn’t have spent hours putting them together without him getting them off loaded. Shout out me as well obviously).

Back to Bud. You all know him as an up and coming coach that coaches many of our classes. You might also know that he is growing and learning every day and working to take on the lead roll in our about to be launched Barbell program. Take a few minutes and read this article about competing in the sport of weightlifting and how it relates to other competitive sports, including CrossFit, and how you might enjoy it regardless of your goals and current ability.

The Lando Barbell Club

Wednesday morning will mark the official launching of the Lando Barbell Club. There will be published pages for each tier of the Barbell Club explaining what each one gives you and how to gain access. This is an exiting new addition to the fitness options at CrossFit Lando. These additions to weightlifting and powerlifting programming, the upcoming Shred and Lean Summer programs, and the Sprint Circuit class starting next week make for a lot of new fun to have.
