Getting Jacked & Tan : AM session.

CaliforniaStrength (7 ) ==> .
Snatch Battle and Block Cleans.

First off, we'd like to apologize for the lack of videos the past few weeks. We've been going through some media issues and upgrades that will hopefully lead to more content for you guys! That being said, we have been grinding away on Jacked and Tan, getting strong as sh*t. All the guys were excited to finally snatch heavy from the floor, despite not snatching heavy from the floor the entire cycle. Rob put up a big 150kg snatch, and Scott pulled out a PR 156kg snatch. Then off the blocks, our young buck David Mckeller managed a massive 160kg clean, a 15kg pr from any position. He got under 165kg twice, but his baby legs were gassed from all the monster attempts he took beforehand. He's heading to OKC for Junior Nationals this weekend, and we couldn't be more excited to watch him kill it at his first national meet!

Big Totals for Big Money $$$.

We decided to have a little competition to get everyone fired up to go big. Because nothing in the world is more motivating than Money right?! Right! $100 for the person closest to their PR Meet Total, $60 for second, $40 for third.
PR Meet Totals:
Spencer 358
Scott 330
Rob 325
Mike 295
Nicole 140

Scott came in first, beating his current meet total of 330, with a 343 total.
Rob came in second with 320, which is 98.4% of 325.
Nicole came in third with 137.5, which is 98.2% of 140

Scott hits 2 massive PR's 185kg and 190kg clean and jerks.
Rob takes a few close attempts at a PR 157kg snatch.
Spencer has a few close attempts at 158kg snatch, and crushes a 194kg clean and jerk.

Getting After the First Day of the BFS Cycle.

The Braver Faster Stronger cycle kicks off with some position 1 snatches, Cleans plus Double Jerks, and Squats. Not every training session has our team going after monster attempts and getting their adrenaline pumping. With week 1 numbers so light, we're really focusing on moving with speed and purpose, to engrain good motor patterns. That being said, we've thrown in some badass Barbell WOD girls lifting to make up for the lack of intensity. You're welcome!

CaliforniaStrength (5 ) ==> .
Colleen, Snatch off the Blocks, Jackie, Clean and Jerk.

The team had to work up to a heavy snatch single from the blocks, followed by a few dropset doubles. Then they had 6 singles on clean and jerk, followed by some squats. Colleen and Jackie got their barbellWOD workout done in preparation for the Open.

Indianapolis for the 2015 NFL Combine.

Coach Dave and Scott went to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine. We had 4 guys there this year: Zack Wagenmann, Tyeler Davison, Jordan Richards, and Mark Nzeocha. In between the hectic schedule of the Combine, Scott was able to find some time to train with 2014 105kg National Silver Medalist Ethan Harak. We got some footage of Tyeler and Zack getting warm in the convention center the night before their testing and drills
Zack Wagenmann (DE)
Vert - 37.5in (3rd)
3 Cone - 7.07s (1st)
20yd Shuttle - 4.26s (5th)
60yd Shuttle - 12.0s (4th)

Tyeler Davison (DT)
Bench - 32reps (5th)
Vert - 33in (4th)
20yd Shuttle - 4.46s (5th)

Jordan Richards (S)
3 Cone - 6.7s (2nd)
20yd Shuttle - 4.22s (8th)

Mark Nzeocha (LB)
Bench - 24reps (10th)
This was the only test he did due to the fact he is only weeks out of ACL surgery. He will be impressive at his Pro Day.

All of these guys will have the opportunity to better their results at their given Pro Days.

A Little Competition Never Hurt Anyone.

We put up everyone's best lifts (from any position) to acquire "PR Totals" for everyone. Then we snatched from the floor and clean and jerked from the blocks. Whoever was closest to their PR Total won! Watch and find out who stepped up that day!

wednesday final.

We're in the final week of the 3p cycle and basically Spencer is the only one left who is healthy. He crushed his weights today. Everyone else still had to struggle and put in work, but they either had to drop the weights down a little or work at a lighter load due to injury.

David Wants to be a Big Boy.

Here's footage from last friday night, and some footage from last week when Big Mike took the camera and decided to interrogate people. Nicole and Scott are still nursing injuries so did not lift heavy on Friday. David on the other hand put some big boy pants on and attempted 3 slabs of beef aka 3 reds aka 170kg aka the first weight that makes you not a little boy anymore. 200kg is the first weight that makes you a man.
Big mike steps in and does some Big Push Presses up to 400lbs.
I know a lot of you have asked for us to put kilos and pounds on the videos, but I'm a firm believer in problem solving and the basic math skills for our future generations. If you can't multiply by 2.2, how do you ever expect to get that cashier job at McDonalds that you've been destined for your whole life?! -Scott Hisaka.
