The 7 Sacred Rules at AllStar

At CrossFit AllStar we commit to live the following:

  1. I promise to do my best. My best will vary from day to day, minute to minute. But in that minute I will do my absolute best.
  2. If I can run, I run. If I have to walk, I walk. When I am forced to crawl, I crawl. Then I rest and live to fight another day.
  3. I may struggle, curse and cry but I will never quit.
  4. I will never criticize or beat myself up for what I can't do today. I will just try again tomorrow.
  5. I promise to believe in myself, beginning each workout with the thought that "I can do this!"
  6. I show up to my workouts because I am committed to my health. My commitment to health is an act of self-love.
  7. I acknowledge that my diet is the most important part of my program. The cleaner it is, the better I do.

9/11/11 Sunday AllStar Olympic Weightlifting Club

We had our second meeting today and worked on the Power Clean. We watched Coach Rippetoe's Starting Strength video, "The Power Clean", and learned the finer points of a clean 'Clean'. We then went through some drills and finished with a Mid-Hang Clean. We got some demos by Arjun and all attempted 3 X 5 Power Cleans. Big improvments were made today in everyones lifts and it was nice to take the time to focus on technique. Getting the elbows around the bar fast and high seems to be something all of us could focus more on, so we practiced, and practiced, and practiced! Remember, this club is for ALL athletes who train here and it is FREE as part of your program. I highly recommend coming so you can spend some time with the more complex Olympic Lifts, so when they show up in a weekly WOD, you are primed and ready.
