There’s one more week left of the CFW games. Come out this Friday night at 6:30pm to watch all the divisions (including kids) try out the fun, competition nature that is Crossfit. Stop by and check it out and see how much fun we have.

Let’s do some core work!
EMOM: 5 squats
I have definitely noticed you guys lately trying to encourage and motivate each other, and that’s awesome! You might not think it, but it’s really helpful to have a few people around you encouraging you when you’re tired towards the end of the WOD. And it’s very discouraging to see those who have finished already cleaning up their equipment, while you’re still trucking along. So, thanks for stepping up and not doing that!

8 DB man makers
8 pull ups
8 jumping lunges
Bootcampers! VA Runner is bringing some folks to CFW on Saturday at 8am for a free workout. Come out and support. I will also still be having the 9am class if you can’t make it at 8am.
12 DB thrusters
12 DB front rack lunges
12 DB push press
Goal: Don’t drop the DB during the round.
So it looks like we are expecting some more winter weather. Here’s a good and quick workout you can do at home to get your heart rate up in any weather.

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.
