WOD Postings for the time being

ANNOUCEMENT:

I will be out of town for work all week, so we will be leveraging a feature of SugarWOD that syncs the app postings to the website.

If you are still visiting our blog for the daily posting, you will see a ‘WODs’ button on the bottom right corner of every page, for desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.  You can see the WOD, and the scores for the day but you will still need to use the app to input your score.

Below is a screenshot showing button placement, but it will already be live on the site by the time of this posting.

Guide to Barbells

We’ve been asked to clear confusion about what bars can be used for what. So here’s a guide and explanation of which task is best suited for which bar:

WOD Bars – These are Rogue 45lb (Blue) – 35lb (White) – 15lb (Green) barbells. There are no restrictions on these bars.
You may WOD
You may do Olympic Lifting
You may perform Strength work, etc…

Olympic Lifting Bars – These are Lynx 45lb (Purple) and B4B/Pendlay 35lb (Pink) barbells. These are to be used for Olympic Lifts ONLY as they are bearing bars that facilitate the pull-under.
You may Snatch and Clean & Jerk.
You may NOT WOD with these bars.
You may NOT Squat/Press or use these bars on the rack in any way as that will damage the knurling over time.

Olympic & Strength Bars – These are Pendlay 45lb (Red) bars. These are bushing bars to be used for Olympic Lifting and Strength work.
You may Snatch and Clean & Jerk.
You may Squat/Press or rack these bars in any way you need.
You may NOT WOD with these bars.

Applicable to ALL bars: Please don’t drop barbells that are not loaded (naked bars), or have only iron plates on them. This can damage the bar’s bearings/bushings, and possibly break the main shaft as well. “Ghost Riding” barbells (dropping them from the top of a movement) is also not allowed for the safety of all members, as they may bounce violently and injure yourself, or a fellow class member.
