This group does’nt get a lot of run, since I have not run an online research program, or fitness challenge in a while. I wanted to do a role call though - Who would be interested in two items.

A FREE ticket to my health and fitness weekend in late march 2020 (up to a 600 value)

3 months of personal training (details vary)

Here’s the catch - you have to respond to this post with your main goal for 2020 and your best idea of how you will achieve it!

Comments will be entered into a bowl and I will draw on FB live!

Here’s what StrongFirst has planned for northern VA this fall!

A new Kettlebell course was just added out in Haymarket/Gainesville! This is the definitive one day course to dive deep into kettlebell practice. This comes in perfect timing after the release of Pavel’s new book (his first since 2011). (His new book “The quick and the dead” is available on Amazon).

Use code EARLY to register. (Spots limited for this discount)
https://www.strongfirst.com/shop/courses/kettlebell-courses/haymarket-va-november-9-2019/

The Tactical Strength Challenge is offered twice a year. The fall challenge is always bigger at the Ashburn location I train out of! Go sign up-this is for everyone. It’s meant to just be a personal test, not a given event you have to train for. AND this year, we are pairing it up with a power lifting meet before the event. TSC registration on the Achieve page on StrongFirst. Com. I will be at Old Glory in Ashburn VA.

So, you will register for the TSC and if you also want to do the PL events of squat and bench before, Comment so I can get you that 15-20$ registration. (Super informal-no real rules-just come and have fun).

Don’t forget, I start my open gym program back up on Aug 18 from 1230-2pm. This is a structured block program open to anyone that wants to lift HARD just once a week. (Which is how I train). Comment for more info.

This year-my 40th year, has some big goals. Not listing them all here- but super happy to report a step in the right direction. This is my second week on my new running program. I jun just on Saturdays. I am on a StrongEndurance KB swing protocol now just completing week 3 of 6. (Before that I was on another StrongEndurance plan for GPP).

Finished mile one in 7:32, mile two in 7:14, and mile three was 7:19. Not bad!

Conclusion-kettlebells make you strong! AND ready for anything!

Eat less, Lift weights (like 4-8reps so it's freakin hard) when you see a hill, run up it! Work to be happy in life! (reduce stress) This works for 99% of guys! If you are looking to get 6 pack abs like a fitness model, its gets a bit more complicated than this.

My recent post to a question in a men’s group for a dude looking to drop body fat. The point - stop over thinking things. It’s not about the macros or the fat burners. It’s about consistency and patterns. Drink some beer and whiskey! Have fun with life, AND lift and eat a few veggies!!!

Kettlebell Press: Move Well, Build the Skill

I’ve shared this before. This is a great example of the StrongFirst system-the type of smart teaching, the notion of SKILL development not just “strength” development. This is what a school of strength is. Here in northern VA, invest in your skill development on March 10th at the one day StrongFirst Kettlebell Course. (Image below in comments , and sign up info on the main StrongFirst site).

Anyone in this group looking for strength/conditioning coaching 1xweek. I have an open gym on asundays forming for the winter and a youth athlete strength development program starting in Jan.

- Strength first! We are looking to get stronger! With this 1xweek program paired with 1-3 GPP sessions weekly, this winter stands to be one of the best programs you can go through.

- power production and power endurance -we are looking to build fatigue resistance through the hips. Whether your goal is the TSC or just to be strong through sports, running/daily activities the hips will be the center of your ability to keep going!

- hypertrophy-muscle growth. With higher levels of DOABLE tension, you stimulate more HGH and other hormones to generate muscle growth. That leads to healthier body composition and better overall athletic functionality.

- cardiovascular base level training. This was a big help in one of our open gym sessions in the past-a 15-20min steady state cardio block. This group activity reminds us all that we are here for total health. For those of us getting older-this is the BEST way of maintaining lower BP, lowering LDL cholesterol, and improving stroke volume capability.

PM me
Can be as low as $6/hour. Which is clearly just an attempt to cover facility costs and just help you/your friends/our community get STRONG

- keys to unlocking strength specifically for the busy woman
- hormonal responses to the foods most women eat often
- connecting self acceptance, and self celebration through exercise
- physical therapy that can be done in minutes each day
- keys to unlock cardiovascular training for health, fat loss and performance

Instructors include Karen McDowell Smith, Donald Blake Berry, Cynthia Croissant, Kristen DeBruycker, Jess Mather

Check out this other event taking place in CA. It certainly looks cool. Our event is just for women (mothers/daughters, sisters, and best friends). PM me for a special payment plan.
