This Saturday, starting at 8AM, we host the second annual CrossFit Solid Orange Ladies Powerlifting Event! What is Powerlifting? It's three lifts: The Back Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift. Each athlete gets three attempts to lift the heaviest weight in each of those lifts! Everyone lifts the same bar and the weight continues to goes up from its starting point.
Now this is where the strategy comes into play. Should you lift a lighter bar to get a score and use one of your three lifts - or should you wait? However, if you wait too long the bar's weight might get too high and you might not score a successful lift!
The event is a friendly competition and it promotes a unique experience for every athlete. The CrossFit Solid Orange family cheering you on - alongside the athlete's own mental focus will push themselves to new highs. It is one of the coolest sites when all their fear subsides and they persevere with a NEW PERSONAL BEST....

INTRODUCING: Strength Training Class - 5PM Tuesdays at CrossFit Solid Orange
The off-season is officially over, and it’s time to get back to some serious CrossFit training. Don’t make the mistake of working out without a well thought out plan. This is a 6-week high volume plan, designed to increase muscle mass, and muscular endurance, two deficiencies common in almost all CrossFitters.
This is the first part the 12-week program. After completing these 6 weeks you will be more muscular, and your ability to handle heavy weights for high reps will be at an all time high.
Many CrossFitters have kind of just been doing a few WODs, and relaxing after the CrossFit open. It’s good to relax in the off-season, and try new things, as well as allowing your body to recover from the niggling aches and pains that accumulate over the year.
That time is over now. We need to get back to serious training, if we are to increase our fitness in the coming year. Before we get into the details of this...
