What is Juneteenth?

A Proclamation on Juneteenth Day of Observance, 2021


Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

“The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired laborer.”
-–General Granger

Warm-up Drills
I. Run 400
II. Coach’s Choice
III. Mobility & Movement Review

Impact/Focus: Front Squat 1RM
Warm-up as needed with sets and reps building to a starting weight.
Before starting to work up in weight, each athlete needs to hit 3 sets of higher reps (5-8) at lighter loads (less than 60%) to prime performance on heavier max effort single rep.
Once the Bar is loaded for the start of the athlete’s one rep sets a 15:00 open ended clock will begin for 1RM attempts.

VS. a 15:00 Running Clock
Establish a Front Squat x 1RM

“Shamwow”
Complete 4 Rounds for time

5-10-15-20 x Dumbbell Manmakers (35/20lbs)
50-50-50-50ft x Dumbbell Overhead Carry (35/20lbs)
5-10-15-20 x Reverse Burpees
50-50-50-50ft x Dumbbell Farmer’s Carry (35/20lbs)

Notes: The Manmaker movement is a Burpee with the Dumbbells and a little zest; after standing up with the two weights the athlete brings the Dumbbells to the Front Rack Position and executes a Thruster. For those who hate memory based things the Thrusters is a Squat with the weight balanced across the front rack that transitions into a Press to lockout once the athlete has stood up through the squat end range of motion. Yes, it shall be revealed in demo format… words are for Mondays.
