Good evening CFD! I hope you had an opportunity to enjoy some of the beautify fall weather we had this weekend. I had a blast coaching Erich in his (and my!) first weightlifting competition at Milwaukee Barbell. Definitely something we should get more Develop Barbell athletes involved in!
If you haven’t heard, Dr. Matt is coming! Please join CFD in welcoming Dr. Matt Paluchniak of evolv PT for a Shoulder Health Workshop at CrossFit Develop. Saturday, November 5th at 10:15 am. $20 per person, reserve your spot in Wodify.
Has Chris convinced you to participate in the Rouge 1000# Challenge yet? To sum up the challenge, you will have one hour to lift 1000# (750# for the ladies) by adding your bench, back squat, and deadlift totals. If you are successful in lifting 1000/750, you get a special T-shirt and bragging rights forever. CFD will be participating on December 18th.

Let’s see what’s in store for us this week!
This week is week eight of nine of our Olympic Lifting cycle. We will be maxing out next week (week nine), which means this week is a taper or DELOAD week. We will not be lifting heavy, rather working at manageable weights, and more active recovery style workouts. Scroll down to see the highlights for this week!
