Weightlifting Clinic a Success

On Saturday January 21st Coach Micela held a benefit Weightlifting Clinic to help support Sarah Robles’s Travel Expenses to the Olympic Trials in Columbus, Ohio in March.  Head Coach Chris Gartrell of Bare Bones Weightlifting Club brought several lifters up from Tucson, AZ for this event.  Along with Coach Micela, 3x National Champion Sarah Robles, 2011 World University Team member Collin Ito, and National Team members Craig Rintoul and Keith Weitz assisted with the clinic.

The first part of the day went over the technical progressions of the Snatch followed by a Snatch Work Out.  Coach Micela’s Technical Progressions allow the athletes to understand the fundamentals of the Snatch from a mechanical perspective.  His technical progressions are great for teaching beginners of all ages and previous sports backgrounds.  By themselves they can be used as Strength Exercises.  Together they form a system of learning that help establish a motor pattern for the Snatch.  Athletes then worked up to a comfortable weight for several singles so the Coaches could observe their technique and give advice.

After a short break.  Coach Micela taught the Jerk.  Again in a series of progressions for better understanding.  From there, the group went over the Clean.  Much of the Technical Progressions for the Clean are similar to the Snatch so the learning of these movements builds on that already learned movements of the Snatch.  Then we put both movements together and let the athletes work up to a heavy weight to say if there are any technical breakdowns as the intensity on the bar goes up.  All the coaches worked with the lifters to offer their advice.

After another short break all clinicians were asked to work up to several heavy singles in the Front Squat.  Since starting these Clinics we have always had at least one person hit a personal record in the Front Squat and this clinic was no different.  Renee Lawton hit 84 kilos in the Front Squat.  Renee is an up and coming lifter in Arizona.  She has shown great promise in the last year or so and is gunning for the University Nationals in Shreveport, LA.  I wish her and her Coach continued success.

Another bright spot of the clinic was Samantha Silverman also out of Coach Gartrell’s Gym.  Sam is very powerful and has the potential to be a top national caliber lifter in the 53 or 58 kilo weight class if she wants to commit to the training.  She has easily lifted 70 kilos in the Clean.  With some time and more Technical work she could be Clean & Jerking that weight and more. I believe she could have a great showing at the University Nationals in April.

Keep it up guys.  We are looking to run another Clinic in February and one a month for the rest of the year.  Look for details on our calendar or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/performanceone to find out more up to date details.

Allen Wins Payson Wrestling Tournament

Congrats to Performance One  Strength and Conditioning Athlete, Christiaan Allen of Highland HS for winning the Payson Invitational Wrestling Tournament. Christiaan has won every tournament he has entered this season.  This is the last event for the Senior Wrestler before Sectionals and then onto the State Wrestling Championships. He is the number one ranked Wrestler in the State of Arizona at 182 lbs. Go for it Christiaan you are on a mission don’t be stopped all of your off season training is paying off!

Jan 20th, 2012 Great day in the Gym!

Great Friday in the Gym.  The energy was cranked on high today.  Wrestler Trey R.  Hit a PR in the 3 Position Snatch with 60 kilos and in the Back Squat with 120 kilos.  Another Wrestler Brendon H.  tied his PR in the Clean & Jerk with 120 kilos not bad after almost a 4 month layoff due to an injury.  Football Player Victor C.  hit a PR Clean with 140 kilos.  Rugby Player Big Ruben V.  hit a solid Pwr Clean & Jerk with 125 kilos.  Weightlifter Blake Edwards hit and easy PR Clean & Jerk with 130 for 2 singles and then took a crack at 135 kilos.  Blake is back this semester after spending the fall semester up in Prescott.  Then all these athletes partnered up and had relay races in the lot with one of our big Tires.  We attached a fire hose to one of the tires.   One guy had to drag it 25 yards and then immediately pull it another 25 yards without stopping.  Once to the end the other guy went.  They did this for 8 sets and kept time.  Not considering they did this at the end of their 2 hour workout. Our athletes get work done! Keep it up boys no one will out work us.  Can’t wait till tomorrow!

First Workout with Chandler Gilbert Baseball Team

First workout in the books with CGCC Baseball Team.  First impressions always tell me a lot about an athlete or group of athletes.  I like to see who are the natural leaders, those whom think they are great but not, the hidden gems, and those whom will be discipline problems.  All in all this is a diverse group of athletes that I will take to the next level.  Stay tune for weekly updates on the teams progress.

Good Luck Wrestlers this weekend at Flowing Wells HS Wrestling Tournament

Good luck to Highland HS Wrestler Christiaan Allen & Mountain View HS Wrestler Grant Huber. They will be competing Friday January 13th and Saturday January 14th in Tucson at the Flowing Wells HS Wrestling Tournament. This tournament is usually a good indicator as to whom will win and place at the Arizona State Wrestling Tournament. It is also the biggest tournament for all Divisions.  Division 1-4 will battle out to see whom is the best of the best.  The season is winding down for the boys and they are looking strong. Time to put your foot down and show no mercy.

Tough Mudder

Go support Performance One Athlete Joseph Wheaton as he competes in the Tough Mudder on Sunday Jan 15th. Big Weekend for events in AZ. PF Chang’s Rock n Roll Marathon, Iron Fest, and the Tough Mudder. Arizona is leading the country in Athletic Competitions.

Go Support the Iron Fest

Go support the Iron Fest tomorrow at East Valley CrossFit in Chandler. This competition will feature 3 Events: Clean & Jerk, Weighted Pull Up, and a Mystery Event encompassing either a Dead Lift Max, Dead Lift Endurance, or Dead Lift and other endurance event dune for either rounds or time. Should be fun it has a little something for everyone. If you can’t participate go and support the athletes competing.

Gym improvements

Even the little gym improvements seem to take a long time. Thanks to intern Mike Jones and Blake Edwards for making it happen. Platforms re set, Jerk blocks grounded, rubber flooring cut, and Vertec mounted on the wall. Next up building higher plyo boxes for our athletes. 46 inches is just not high enough for our guys.
