Deadlifts. Heavy. 3 reps
Sprint the gym (in Bodytribe terms that’s 120 feet with a turn in the middle)
1-arm DB Snatch. 5 reps each side

A few of our favorite things
Bodytribe exists in constant change. From the strength, performance and body composition of individual members to the topographical landscape of the gym itself, the tribe is in flux. Although it is never boring, it always a little weird.
Part of this change is the continual expansion of the our brand of silliness to new places around the globe. This month Austin and Phoenix, and over the next few months, our Brutal Recess workshops are traveling through cities across the U.S..
It feels like time to catch up a little. With new members constantly flowing in, a small roster of new apprentices beginning their twisted journey with us and a steady stream of new friends around the globe, it might be necessary to compile a small list of essential reading – a Bodytribe Primer, if you will – for folks who want to dip a little into what we babble on about all the time.
Quick summary of the majority of what you’re about to read (if you dare click on the links below):
Fitness = personal empowerment through movement.
Personal empowerment must equal tribal empowerment or it doesn’t exist.
Hence Fitness = tribal empowerment through movement
Yeah, it’s a lot of thinking about movement and strength. Most of us reading this already MOVE, but to receive maximum bang for the buck, we’d better start investigating the WHY behind the WHAT.
What is a Tribe?
The Full Circle
The Beginning: the Story of me and Sherri the mountain
There is no perfection, just Purity
When Tribes Bicker
How We GPP (a lengthy post about our program design)
Facing the Conundrum: We have to move because we DON’T have to move
Effort Over Outcome
That’s a start. An ever growing tribe of contemplative, moving strength addicts is more fun than I’d ever imagined (and I’ve imagined some serious fun, like eating ice cream on a rollercoaster), and I thank you all for being a part of our family.
More updates and info next week!
