Eric and gang at CrossFit Pacific Coast will be conducting a swimming seminar called CrossFit H20, at one of their local pools on the afternoon of our Box Jump on Saturday, August 28th from 3pm to 6pm!  Geared toward those with basic aquatic skills (can swim 75 yards), learn from Eric and Traver who are both NCAA D1 ranked swimmers.  Find out more at the gym.

We can introduce a national class Still Ring champion to the deadlift, where he’s never been in the weight room before, and he’ll pick 400 lbs up off the ground.  But we cannot introduce a national class Powerlifter to the Still Rings and expect muscle-ups or front levers.  It is for this reason that gymnastic ability (body control) is foundational to weightlifting (external object control.)  Read the story in Coach Sommer’s article below.
