As we start another week, we'd like to remind everyone of a few things. First, as noted in a post last week, tomorrow we will conduct WOD #1 of Top Dawg competition. We are so excited about this in-house challenge and hope that all of you are too! We ask that everyone please be on time for their class because we may be on a tight schedule. If you cannot attend the WOD tomorrow but are still interested in taking part, please email Kimberly to make arrangements to complete the WOD at another time.
There are just two days left of our January Gym Challenge. The TCF team has done great thus far but don't risk the chance of coming up short. Rack up a few more meters before or after your workouts to help ensure the goal is met. We'll announce the final number on Wednesday along with February's challenge.
We have several great seminars and workshops scheduled for February. These special offerings are included as part of your TCF membership and we encourage you take part in any or all of them if you can. To our veteran CrossFitters, you are welcome to repeat workshops - you never know, you just might learn something new!
Lastly, if you haven't purchased your TCF Hoodie yet, don't miss out. We will not be ordering any more this winter. We also have some long-sleeved t-shirts left too.
And Here's some vintage footage (2007) of Coach Glassman with an answer to a question some of you have been asking lately, in your own way, of course.
A new week awaits you, WOD-killers,... now go kick some butt!
Workout of the Day
High Bar Back Squat
5,5,5 (lighter weight - warm up and practice)
7 rounds for time:
7 Power Cleans (135, 95)
The 3's in the squats should get heavier, and the last 3 singles should be for load. Post heaviest load and time to comments.
Beautiful, huh? Once he starts moving, don't blink, or you might miss it. There are so many things to comment on in this video, so do it! By the way, this weight is 2x his bodyweight + 33 more lbs.
