MDR leaves no doubt!

Another HUGE congratulations and thank you to everyone that came out to participate, volunteer, and cheer on your fellow PCFers!

 The EIE challenge may be officially over, but the lessons we have learned continue on:  create a goal, come up with a plan and go for it!  

I would love to hear about everyone’s experiences over the past 5 weeks as they attempted to accomplish their goals.  Feel free to email me at or click HERE to fill in our new “EIE results” column on the google docs.

Congratulations MDR!  The new PCF World Champions!!

Notes: Compare your results from 9/15. Focus on linking your toes to bar! Scale the SHSPU with a banded backpack or heavy Lseated DB presses. The OHS should be taken from the floor. If you cannot perform this weight, challenge yourself with the heaviest weight you think you can perform. If you struggle with depth in the OHS or have any wrist/shoulder issues, perform front squats.
