2016 Lurong Challenge
We are participating in the Lurong Challenge again this year. Registration opens for the Challenge on August 1st. There are some great prizes for early bird registrants, if you sign up when registration opens at 2PM on August 1st.
The Lurong Challenge is a diet and fitness challenge where you earn points for things like eating right, performance on WODs, and trying recipes. It incorporates elements similar to the CrossFit Open with national ranking of scores. It has some major sponsors and some great prizes will be awarded throughout the Challenge. There are individual prizes as well as team prizes that the whole Box receives.
We will be sending out more info on the Challenge soon. For now, the Challenge starts on September 12th and ends October 30th. Registration cost is $45.
Early bird registration starts at 2pm on August 1st! Sign up for as low as $29.95 before August 22nd.
There is so much more to the Challenge than I can fit in here. For more info, check out the 2016 Lurong Challenge.
Chinese Olympic Lifting coach, Manuel Buitrago, will be setting up a 4-week class that meets once a week on Thursdays, 6pm-7:15pm at CFF. The cost for the 4 sessions is $160.
I attended a 2-day Ma Strength seminar taught by Coach Ma and Coach Buitrago. In the seminar, we learned the five Chinese weightlifting tenants of Close, Fast, Low, Timing, and Stable. During my seminar, the coaches made a slight adjustment to the percentage of weight I was putting on my forefoot as I set up for a snatch or clean, and it made a huge difference in my pulls. That first hour of the seminar was worth the cost of the course. The whole seminar was very useful and I learned a lot from it.
Manuel’s classes are limited to 8 people. In the classes, expect to receive lots of individual attention where your technique will be critiqued and adjusted. If you are looking to take your lifts to the next level, this is the course for you.
Manuel is forming his 4-week class and working out the schedule now. Dates are not set as of yet. Contact him for more information. Chineseweightlifting@gmail.com
