Great work to those who participated in our CrossFit for Hope fundraiser on Friday! Your contributions will be put to good use! If you didn't get a chance to come in for the workout, don't let that interfere with supporting the cause . Donations can still be made and remember, it doesn't have to be much.
Also, a great time was had by all who got down and dirty at the Ninja Challenge Race on Saturday. Our training was what the doctor ordered for this type of course. If you missed it, you missed out, but there are more to come!
Workout of the Day
We will be doing a strength cycle beginning this week based on a program created by Coach Gayle Hatch, Hall of Fame weightlifting coach. It will be modified due to the time constraints of our classes, but should still be highly effective. It will consist of back and front squats, working the primary muscle groups for most other power and all olympic lifts. We will also be practicing the other lifts, but those two will be the scheduled staples that will not be missed for the duration of this cycle, which is still to be determined. We will be working off your current 1 rep max for those lifts. In general, we'll be doing one or both of these lifts on Mondays and Fridays. Also, we ask that you please stick with these numbers and not alter the reps or percentages. They are prescribed for a reason. Now, lets get started.
Back Squat 10 x 60%, 8x 70%, 6 x 75%, 4 x 80%
"Death By 10 Meters"
With a continuously running clock, sprint 10m the first minute, 20m the second, etc., until you can no longer complete the required number of meters in the corresponding minute.
If you don't have a 1 rep max, or if it is over 3 months old, find a new one today instead of the posted workout. Whether it's more or less, this will be what you work off of during this cycle. Post weights used and number of minutes COMPLETED in the met-con to comments.
