Congrats

elisia

I’d like to congratulate all the CFW Powerlifters that completed their 7 week program today.  I coached the 10 and 11 on the CrossFit side so I wasn’t able to see the PR’s first hand but I heard every one of them.  I’m proud of you all as you’ve put in some serious work on the strong side and even more work getting all your accessory lifts done as well.  Walking around the track for an hour with a sled attached to you and a med ball in your arms isn’t awesome but you did it and it paid off big time.  Congrats again ya’ll.  Job well done.

Today:

3 Rounds

30 Deadlifts

21 OHS

(95 and 65 is the weight for both movements)

Why Burpees?

DSC_0656

Who loves burpees?  Anyone?  Ok, well obviously many of us do not enjoy doing burpees but I continue to hear people ask why we do them when they are programmed.  The number 1 reason we do them I believe is because they are FUNCTIONAL!  If you are skeptical take a look at this article for more reasons to love the burpee and crush them with a smile on your face today.

Skills Sunday

DSC_0698

Out of all the moves that we can choose from in CrossFit and looking at our programming here I think we need some work in the double under category.  Yes, double under are tough to learn, they’re even tough to teach.  What’s really going to get this things under your belt finally is going to be repetition.  I whipped myself for weeks trying to get these things a few years ago but it paid off.  Come in and work on these things

Today:

10am:

Double Unders

11am:

5 Rounds

10 SDHP

15 Box jumps
