DT Surf Club – Surf, Sand and Sweat
We are exicted to announce DogTown is hosting a Saturday class at the BEACH! The DT Surf Club will provide workouts 1 hour in duration. They will be performed outside on sand, grass, sometimes concrete, and possibly some water (don't worry, we will give you a heads up). The movements include body weight exercises (gymnastics) and cardio/plyometric exercises. The focus will not be about weight lifting, but external load will be used in some classes (kettlebells, medicine balls, etc.).
The concept behind DT Surf Club is simple:
1. Get outside (an average person spends 90% of their day indoors!)
2. Increase your cardiovascular conditioning and muscle endurance
3. Learn how to run with more efficiency
4. Have FUN
You will not be required to bring any equipment with you to class.
Now I know what you are thinking…this sounds like a commercial. DUH! But its more than that, we want you guys to take advantage of the beautiful California weather, and get a tremendous workout. Not to mention, that after every class, we encourage you to stick around and challenge your friends to volleyball, throw a football around, or have a picnic with some of your favorite gym mates.
At the end of summer, DogTown will host a team competition on Sept 7th “BASH AT THE BEACH”. Stay tuned for more details regarding that event.

So here is the final video in the series we have done on developing the Muscle Up. Over the past eight episodes we have broken down the Muscle Up begining with grip, position and form. We have shown you how to identify your missing piece of the puzzle. For many it is a combination of lack of strength, mobility and or coordination. However, we now have the tools to develop these seperately and begin to piece them together. Below is where it all comes together. Hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions. Hit me up.
Happy holidays! This episode is a little longer and really gets into the nuts and bolts of what happens in the "transition" of the Muscle up. Here we show you with a strong enough pull, correct position and a solid dip -no momentum is required. By taking apart the pieces of the muscle up we can better understand our own bodies, our own limitations and where we may be deficient. The bottom line is we strive for the unattainable: perfection. Enjoy!
