Just a reminder that there is a group hike up Buck Mountain this Saturday. The weather is going to be warm and sunny so it should be nice. What: Buck Mountain is a moderately difficult but very rewarding hike overlooking Lake George. Who: All members are welcome to join (LGCF and 12866). When: Saturday, June 16th at 8:00AM Where: We will meet at Buck Mountain trailhead parking area, feel free to carpool with others that are going. Some things to consider: Bring water, hiking is more fun when you are not dizzy and worried about passing out. Footwear: you can definitely wear sneakers but if you have hiking boots or light trail sneakers they will help your knees out a bit. However, don’t let your footwear hold you back from going. It’s a good idea to bring bug spray, sunscreen, a windbreaker in case it’s windy on top when you’re sweaty, and a snack for the top.
All afternoon classes today, December 22nd, are cancelled due to the weather. Drive safely!
The 10AM class today, December 12th, is cancelled due to weather. At this point the afternoon classes will remain as normally scheduled. Please check your email for any further cancellations. Drive safe today!
Olympic lifting is a staple of our programming and I don’t see that changing. Clean and jerks and snatches improve your speed, strength, power, coordination, mobility, agility, endurance, balance, and accuracy. I’m sure I can come up with more but you get the point. While the people in the gym that really love these lifts probably already know this but the Weightlifting World Championships are this week and they are being held in Anaheim, California. The event being held in the US is a nice perk because the pacific time zone makes the action much easier to follow than when the event is held on the other side of the world. While I understand that watching this event is like watching Lebron James play basketball or Serena Williams play tennis and that our skill sets don’t exactly translate to what we are seeing. It’s a great opportunity to learn about the sport and the lifts. I know every time I watch a live event streamed I pick up at least one thing I didn’t know from the announcing team. The links below bring you to a couple websites so you can stream the event live, get an official start list for anyone you may want to follow, and a list of the USA Weightlifting team members there participating STREAM THE EVENT START LIST USA TEAM MEMBERS
