WSC Max Effort Challenge 3

max effort fitness competitionOn September 19, 2015 Woodlands Strength and Condition hosted the Third Annual Max Effort competition.  The Max Effort competition is a team challenge that consists of teams of two men, women, or co-ed partners.  Teams entered from The Woodlands and Spring areas as well as Houston, Beaumont, Longview and various other areas of Texas.

There were a total of 30 teams that entered.  The participants were tested on their strength through a series of one rep max lifts in the squat, press, clean, bench press, and deadlift.  Additionally, their conditioning was tested through two challenges.

Challenge 1 consisted of a six minute challenge where the team rotated between a stationary bike and an axle bar for power cleans.  The teams scored points by biking for calories and completing power cleans with the axle bar.  Challenge 2 consisted of a strongman type medley of shuttle sprints, pulling sleds while performing squats with kettlebells, a beer keg overhead carry, and a yoke walk.

Only one team was able to completely finish this medley within the time limit.  Courtney Graves and Sarah Gross from Woodlands Strength and Conditioning received special recognition for this feat.

"Proper training and technique are the two things that I won't sacrifice when picking a gym or while working out. If I am not learning at the gym I get bored. WSC provides killer training and always preaches technique. Having equipment 2nd to none is just an added bonus. -CC"
"At WSC I have had a chance to inspire and also be inspired by the unexpected. I've gained a family and the support needed to get me to where I am. Just remember...'Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.' -WB"
