CFV Canoe Trip!!
@Rochelle’s on the Brazos River below PK
Here’s the plan…..Ready to go from Rochelle’s @ 8:00 am. The 1/2 day trip is approx 10 miles. Those wanting to join can bring own canoe / kayak or rent from Rochelle’s. The launch point is at Rochelle’s and pickup point is on private land. If you bring your own kayak, you pay for the shuttle service that Rochelle’s offers ($30). I was also told, they can take your car to pickup point and have it waiting for you when finished. If you do a rental, they will shuttle you back to the launch point. Those needing to rent will need to call Rochelle’s in advance to make reservations. 1-man Kayak $25, 2-man Kyayak $30, 2-man Canoe $30, Shuttle fee if you bring your on Kayak is $30. See website for additional rental/shuttle pricing. rochellescanoerental.com/
Make sure to pack: food, water and or other beverages, sunscreen and bug spray. Those bringing own kayak will need to make sure and pack a life jacket. Hopefully be done by 2pm, pack up and head over to west side of PK for a swimming and cookout after party at the Hill’s cabin. Their are plenty of beds if anyone wants to crash.
All Canoe rentals must be reserved by July 8th to insure availability.
There is a sign up sheet at the box and we’ll get together a few days prior to the trip to work out the details on travel and after party. We will be cooking ribs, so you may bring a side dish or dessert and beverage of your choice to the cabin.

Pick up the Bar! Developing Grip Strength
We return to our Pick Up the Bar series this week with an important topic: grip strength. Grip strength is one of the most important, and yet underdeveloped, aspects of our training. But once you realize that grip strength equals bigger lifts, well then…you’ll probably want to focus on it a bit more.
So, as we prepare for our next series of articles focusing on the clean progression, we’ll begin here first with our grip. At the end of the day, if you can’t grip the bar, then there’s no way you’ll be able to rip it from the floor and lift big. And we all know…we want to lift big or go home!
Now, before we get started with ways to develop that grip strength, let’s talk about a few things you don’t want to do. It may surprise you, but follow me on this one. Continue reading here.
