**ATTENTION ALL LIFTERS INTERESTED IN A LITTLE EXTRA FUN**
Dear barbell loves,
If you have ever been curious about lifting in a ‘competitive’ setting, we have some fantastic opportunities approaching.
1. NoVa Strength & Conditioning is hosting a ‘mock meet’ on FEBRUARY 9. This is be a non-sanctioned, pressure-free environment to lift as if lifting at a meet. Everything will be run like a sanctioned meet, except … it’s not sanctioned. No weigh-ins, you don’t need to wear a singlet (though you might consider it), and nothing bad happens if you miss.
Elizabeth is going for sure. A couple of you have expressed interest. They would like to know how many to expect, so please let us know your interest in going ASAP (by Friday 2/25 at the latest, please) so we can 1) give them a head count; and 2) help you prepare your potential attempts.
If you plan on competing for real in the future, this is a must. If you just want to know what it feels like to lift in front of a crowd, this is a great opportunity. It’s free! Also, rumor mill says they have a grill at their gym, and plan to use it after lifting. Steaks will be in the car! Right now the plan is to drive up (early) Saturday morning, lift, mingle, rock on, eat, then drive home.
Our current lifting cycle ends that weekend (Febrary 9/10) with an Oly Total anyway, so why not try your hand at that in a meet setting? You can always come back Sunday to chase weight 😉
Speaking of “competing for real in the future”…
2. Crossfit RVA in Richmond is hosting a meet on APRIL 21.
This IS a USAW sanctioned meet, so you will have to become a USAW member. Billy and Jenni both lifted at this location in October. The facility is large and the meet was well-run and fun. This should be that, but more so! You get a discount for early registration, and spots WILL fill up, so please register ASAP!!! And, again, let us know if you did so we can help prepare you to meet your goals. Please consider it, so we can show them what C’ville Strength is made of!!!
