Shouldering the Load


A Note From Coach Yosh about the Baystate Games
The BayState Games are quickly approaching, and one of the events they will host again this Summer is their Olympic Weightlifting Meet. I wanted to take a moment to hopefully encourage some of you to compete! This is a really great event held at UMASS Boston’s Athletic Center on Saturday July 21st & Sunday July 22nd.

The added bonus of this event is that you are not required to be an active USA Weightlifting Member to compete, so it’s perfect for just about any level of experience. For those unfamiliar with how a Weightlifting Meet runs, you are basically allowed 3 attempts at your max Snatch and Clean&Jerk. So for those interested in testing new 1RMs, or just looking to lift heavy, you have a perfect opportunity.

If you are even somewhat interested in this, or have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. It’d be awesome to get a group of us to go represent CrossFit Southie!

    Should have just done all the stoh in round 1 rather than stand around with my thumb up my ass being tired halfway through.

    Legit can’t believe MEG SULLI is back at Southie. Absolute OG 7PM’er. She was putting up with my crap in class while some of you were still in highschool I think.

    WOD1: 3:10 L3
    WOD2: 4:05 Rx
    WOD3: DNF

    Throwdown vs Jill was best of 3. I didn’t have to do the 3rd WOD since I swept the first two. (No surprise, running and burpees, two of her worst movements.) 2nd WOD would have been faster had I not used the farthest rower from my barbell, my own fault for standing around like an idiot while everyone else scrambled for rowers.
