Over the past year, I’ve had several women ask me if there is an “Upper Body” program, like the Squat programs out there (like the Russian or Miller Squat Programs we use). So I started developing an upper body program about 6 months ago and tested it on Rachelle and Bonnie – with excellent results so far. Rachelle left for Georgia this past week and made these T-Shirts before she left! I still need to make some adjustments before I release it for everyone, but stay tuned! This program helps develop both strength for pull-ups and ring dips, but also for shoulder strength and stability for all things overhead! #teamfortius #crossfit #upperbody #upperbodybyjesse #strength #womanstrength #sandiego #fitfam #instafit #gym #oly #pullups #fitness #sandiegocrossfit #sandiegofitness #livesore #ucsd #sdsu #usd #ymca #weightlifting

This is our smallest meet of the year, capped at 50 – and naturally it sold out in one day We may have to make it bigger next year! The first session is just-for-fun, costume encouraged. The other 3 sessions will be USAW Sanctioned, with several athletes looking to qualify for the American Open! Come by and watch some weightlifting on Saturday!
