Sure, but first you’ll need to lift either 75, 95, or 115 pounds as many times from the ground to full lockout overhead within a total of five minutes.
And that’s just the first of three work outs that were slated for the fundraiser for X-sports 4 Vets on behalf of Vets. The event, hosted by CrossFit Emergence and Tamarack Brewing Company took place Saturday, April 27th, at Caras Park. All proceeds of the $50 registration fee went to X-Sports. So with over 100 CrossFit athletes participating, there was a substantial amount of funds raised on behalf of our Vets.
The second workout was even harder. In 10 minutes, row 1,000 meters, then jump off the rower and in the remaining time, find and do your 5 rep max dead lift. Whew! Now if that’s not enough (and it was), you then reset your bar with 95 pounds and do as many rounds in 6 minutes of front rack lunges x 10 followed by 10 hand release pushups. Killer!
Brent Dodge, PT of Alpine Physical Therapy will testify in a heart beat that work out number two was indeed a killer. The picture below shows a smiling Brent . . . BEFORE said workout. We deleted all pictures of his facial grimace that he donned following the event!
His face was a bit brighter when after doing 76 reps in five minutes with 75 pounds (a total of 5,700 pounds), Brent discovered that he placed 11th in work out number one!
For participants who were still alive and kicking, the third work was a seven minute workout consisting of three movements. First, squat clean 155 pounds four times, then do six 24-inch box jumps, then do 15 jump rope double unders. The aim was to do as many rounds of these three movements in seven minutes. Killer. Double killer!
Upon completion of each of these three work outs, you can now guzzle a delicious brew available ring-side by Tamarack Brewing Company. Burp! Double burp!
Special thanks to Tamarack Brewing Company and to David Johns, owner of CrossFit Emergence in Missoula for the amazing work they did to make this meaningful fund raiser possible!

CrossFit Emergence and Tamarack Brewing Company have teamed together to host a CrossFit competition called the “Downtown Throwdown” to be held in downtown Missoula, under the Pavilion at Caras Park on April 27, 2013. All proceeds from the athlete entry-fee’s will be donated to X-Sports For Vets, a local non-profit in Missoula that uses extreme sports to help recent conflict veterans make a successful transition back to civilian life. Entry into the competition is $50.
There are three divisions: Experienced, Scaled, and Beginner, so that all levels can compete. Additionally, there will be three heats, all of which will tax our athletes to the hilt. Alpine will be onsite offering free pain and injury consultations to all CrossFit athletes. Over 100 athletes are slated to compete.
Alpine’s owner, Brent Dodge, will represent Alpine in the advanced division. Brutal is an understatement. Come and check out the “fun.” Did I say fun? Okay, maybe it won’t be fun, but what a fantastic opportunity to be a part of this meaningful event on behalf of our Vets. We proudly salute all of our Vets for all they’ve done on our behalf!
With the arrival of Spring in Missoula, the youth soccer season is now in full swing! As mentioned in earlier blogs, Alpine Physical Therapy has recently teamed up with the Missoula Strikers soccer club. Along with offering free 15 minute consultations to all Strikers players, Alpine personnel will also presenting a short “injury-prevention and proper warm-up technique” sessions to the Striker’s coaches.
One of our PT’s will attend each team’s practice and take the players through a 20-30 minute warm-up session while educating the coaches and players on proper jumping technique, running form and warm-up techniques that will help prevent ankle, knee, and other lower extremity injuries.
Additionally, Alpine is developing a training periodization model to guide coaches on the amount of volume and quality of the soccer workload the players are subject to through the course of a season. The soccer scene in Missoula is booming, and Alpine Physical Therapy is actively interested in helping with this growth!

There is strength in numbers. Alpine Physical Therapy is now fully operational in THREE Missoula locations serving South, North, and Downtown.
At our recent open house, we heard only positive comments about the look and feel of our brand new location within the Peak Health and Wellness Center, Downtown, at 150 East Spruce Street. It’s definitely got a downtown feel that is palpable.
Three locations. The math is simple. Now it’s easier for people to access the top spot for orthopedic and sports physical therapy.

Tara Mund, a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Alpine PT, recently completed a three-part training seminar leading to a Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy. With this advanced training Tara is able to evaluate and treat patients with pelvic health needs with effectiveness and expertise that is unmatched in the Missoula area.
Incontinence, pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, and bowel dysfunctions, are all sensitive conditions that require specialized knowledge and training to address. Many people are unaware that trained Physical Therapists treat these conditions and can provide successful treatment results.
Treatments are individualized and will vary depending upon the person’s specific diagnosis and impairments. Notably, pelvic floor muscle retraining is commonly an integral component in treating pelvic health conditions.
We invite you to call for a free 10-minute consultation or to schedule an initial evaluation. Tara can be reached at our north office in Missoula at 406-541-2606.
