110222 – Tuesday

  • The First Annual Phat Elvis High Voltage Weightlifting Meet is scheduled! Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 12, 2011 at the High Voltage Box! Full USAW rules apply. We’re really excited about this. We were planning on attending a meet that weekend, but the hosts closed it off to only members of their gym…so, we stepped up and are helping out all the lonely weightlifters out there and hosting our very first Oly meet.
  • Early Registration is just $10 (plus USAW Membership & Singlet!), or $20 at the door.
  • Even if you’re not gonna compete, these events are really, really fun to watch…plus, you know if we’re hosting that it’s gonna be a good time!
  • Tuesday night, our friend Matty from Stronger Faster Healthier will be coming back to go over more nutrition stuff with everyone. Our latest shipment of SFH Products are going fast, we’re already more than half way sold out of our Post-WOD Whey Protein…so if you’re someone that’s still on the fence, this is the night for you to come!

Q. What do you like best about CrossFit High Voltage?

Q. Any other information you would like the world to know???

A. TRY IT!!!! Best investment for yourself…

  • Stronger Faster Healthier Rep Matty Aporta will be in tonight at the box! Come by, say high, ask him tons of questions and stay healthy!
  • Interested in doing the CF Games Open Sectionals? Great! A little intimidated? Here’s what CF Headquarters says about it:

“The CrossFit Games Open begins on March 15. With athletes from all over their world submitting their results and videos, we needed a new site to keep track of the competition. The new Open site will have some cool new features such as showing participants their up-to-date position in the world and in their region. The ranking will update in real-time as results pour in.

Another new feature is that athletes will be able to create side-to-side comparisons with any other Open athlete. For example, you’ll be able to find out how you compare with Mikko Salo across the Open workouts.

With regards to programming, the Open workouts will be very manageable. They will draw mostly from standard CrossFit movements like thrusters, cleans, pull-ups, and push-ups. At only one workout a week, any athlete training for the Games in will be able to easily handle the volume of work.

Affiliates will be able to turn hosted Open workouts into community events. Upon completing a week’s Open workout, athletes will be able to relax and drink some beers with their fellow CrossFitters.

And it all starts in just three weeks.” Sounds maybe a little more up your ally now? Good. It’s going to be a ton of fun!

  • PR’s everywhere on Monday’s WOD. It’s always a great testament to our training methods when we spend a lot of time focusing on more technical parts of CrossFit, and then because you’re stronger & faster, you’re able to crush a bodyweight workout better than ever before.

It just goes to show there is a difference between training & testing.

  • Finally, Member Profile of the Week is JP, aks JPizzle, aka JP Amistoso. I thought that everyone might know who it is right off the bat, but then again, I think that also goes to show how well we get to know each other. JP has shown amazing mental & physical fortitude & commitment lately. He shows up every day asking what he Can Do, and that’s the best attitude to CrossFit with! He’s been squatting a ton lately, and it’s incredible to see how much his form has improved. We’re very proud to have JPizzle as a part of our High Voltage Community!

J-‘I thought this was going to be just another bootcamp’-Pizzle having fun being strong!
