What just happened?!?!

MjAxMy0yOTQ1N2JlZWNmODMyNDU1

For those of you that came in and completed the first day of our new squat cycle, congratulations! Now… drink a quart of water, grab a foam roller, and start recovering.

“But what did we just do?!” you ask?

Well you started a squat program in order to get strong and flexible that’s been adapted from this one developed by Spencer Arnold for the sport of weightlifting.

Our version here at CrossFit Woodbridge is a little different, using our recently established 1RM Back Squat to determine the weights for each day, and less frequent squat sessions so that we can do all sorts of other fun fitness without getting bored or losing sight of things that don’t involve a barbell like running fast, jumping high, and doing handstands!

In order to get the most out of the program, GO HERE, type in your 1 Rep Max Back Squat, print, and come to class ready to work hard and then recover.

Now, back to walking down the stairs backwards…

Weekly Accessory Homework!

Accessory Work For The Week Of Monday 8/8/2016:

  1. Spend 2:00 in a Jefferson Curl/Panda Stretch: three times this week
  2. Accumulate 5:00 in a plank: twice this week
  3. 100 Banded Tricp Push-Downs: twice this week
  4. 3×30 GHD Hip Extensions: twice this week
  5. 3×20 Med Ball Russian Twists: three times this week

This represents work to be done in addition to attending classes regularly. These exercises are a great way to “fill in the gaps” of strength, mobility, and control necessary to excel at the functional movements and classical lifts we practice and perform day-in and day-out.

Vet Expo 2K16 – Saturday 8/20/2016 11AM-2PM At CrossFit Woodbridge

As a Veteran, I have seen the red tape and what seems like an endless road of unanswered questions. Furthermore, I have also been misguided by my fair share of unqualified people. My mission is to simplify this process. Instead of the Veteran having to spend countless hours navigating through unorganized websites or trying endlessly to get someone on the phone, I am going to make the process easier by bringing the Veterans Affairs office to us!

On August 20th, CrossFit Woodbridge will be hosting the VET EXPO 2K16. On this day, the Veterans Affairs office will be coming to CrossFit Woodbridge to introduce E-Benefits and enroll those that are interested.

In addition to the Veterans Affairs Office, the VET EXPO 2K16 is going to bring a variety of organizations together so we know who and what is available to lend a supporting hand. Whether it is a fishing group, a CrossFit gym, or simply just a group of guys that get together for no apparent reason, I want you to know what communities are available for you to become a part of.

This is a free, not for profit event.
