100 burpees for time
I’ve heard you guys say many times, “we squat SO MUCH!” And while I know you’re not complaining, you probably wonder why we squat as much as we do. Let me tell you why.
1- Squats build muscle everywhere. Not only do squats work your legs, but they create an ideal environment for all over muscle growth. Certain hormones (that encourage all over muscle growth) are released while working such large muscle groups, such as the legs.
2- Squats build muscle and muscle burns FAT!
3- Squats are the most functional and natural of movements, and in order to encourage health and mobility, the squat should be mastered and maintained. Ever watch a baby squat down to look at something? It’s the perfect movement that we lose with age.
4- Squats prevent injuries by strengthening joints and encouraging mobility.
5- Squats are CHEAP and can be done anywhere in many different forms. So today, let’s work on a few different versions of the squat.

With the new expansion, we have so much more room. We are still working out the kinks though, of what program goes where. So, hang in there a little bit longer while we come up with a plan as to where we are going to mainly be for evening bootcamps. We have Crossfit classes, bootcamp, gymnastics classes, and powerlifting classes all to coordinate.
Thank you again for your patience while we work out the scheduling/room issues.

Last week I had an interesting question. One of our bootcampers is an avid runner, and is training for a race. She is struggling to find balance between her bootcamp workouts, which she loves, and her long runs. She asked if it would be too much for her to (regularly) run and do a bootcamp/Crossfit all in one day. The answer is YES. The bootcamp workouts serve the high intensity of the aerobic systems more than running, which will in turn, make your running better and faster. I’ve actually had many runners come to me and ask about this. A healthy balance of high intensity activity, strength training, and lower intensity running is going to make you an efficient (and healthy!) runner.
