BOULDERS FOR SHOULDERS

If you are participating in the fitness challenge, don’t forget we are 3 weeks away from retesting. It goes by fast. Hopefully you have built up some strength for those thrusters in the Rain Maker WOD we will re – test. Or built up some running endurance for the mile run. By now, you should have made some good positive changes to your eating habits. Eating to fuel your body and not for social pleasures. Consistency is key. Just because you came 5x for 1 week doesn’t shake a stick at what you are doing this week. Fitness is earned through the efforts of CONTINUOUS hard work. Keep it up. Post to the comments below any good ideas, successes or good information for the rest of the community. Lets finish strong.

KRISTI

Happy Birthday , Kristi. I hope you have a great day. Here is a WOD that goes along with her tag line , Less is more. Krisi is a real motivated athlete that chooses to put in extra work on her lunch break. When she comes in at lunch and asks what to do for extra credit, I usually have her work her weaknesses. Assault Bike, strict gymnastics, intervals… gross stuff. She does it, then comes back the next day asking for more. What a great mindset. Have a happy birthday.

“Less is more ”

For time

9 – 1 Push Jerk 155 / 105

1 Rope Climb between sets.

BON VOYAGE

Ashley is leaving CrossTown Thursday, tomorrow is her final evening class. We will all miss her very much. Whatever box she travels to in the future will be gaining a great athlete. I remember when she joined and she was typical distance runner turned CrossFit. What I did not expect was the determination and coachability she had. She competes in CrossFit regularly and is game for any WOD. Have a great Bon Voyage WOD.

CLIFF HANGER

We are doing an exendurance order on Wednesday ( Supplements ) . I choose to use these supplements from this company because I feel they are the best in the CrossFit industry. I have tried a lot. Free and paid for. Pharmacy grade, clean and effective. Below is a little tid bit about each one.

Also , the sales rep is giving a free shirt or tank for every order, so let me know your shirt size too on the order sheet. Sheet is out till Thursday afternoon. No minimum for the shirt or tank, just buy something.

Exendurance pills – take 3 a day morning and night, I usually take 2 and 2 unless I am competing on the horizon. $45

These pills buffer lactic acid pain. It works great . Reduces soreness tremendously. This is their flagship product and the product that put this company on the map.

Protien – whey protein supplement. Clean. Tasty. Comes in Vanilla and Chocolate. $60

Fuel 5 – Clean carbs for pre workout. Has a little kick ,but not overkill. Great for nutritional needs ( RP BABY ) and also a good fuel for your workouts. $45

Creatine – a brilliant creatine product. Take this regularly and you will get stronger in your lifts and ability to generate power from your muscles. $30

Hydrate – a good source of hydration and electrolytes while you workout or recover. $30

Omega 3 – A great supplement for joints and overal bodily functions. $25

I personally take the creatine, exendurance pills and omega. Lately I have been taking the Fuel 5 and notice a good jump in my game when I WOD. If you have questions ask the coaches. Real FOOD is always number 1 and supplements are just that ….supplementing your nutrition.

1 RM BACK SQUAT

We are coming up on the end of this strength cycle. Time to test the one rep max back squat. Performing a one rep is a great qualifier for strength, however it is not the only qualifier. Especially when talking about CrossFit , one rep maxes are not the only number to judge yourself by. Moving a barbell one time is a lot different than moving a heavy barbell 21 – 15 and 9 times. Both are needed in fitness and that is why we train both sides of the coin. One rep maxes are part of the strength component just as much as stamina or power. So even though you may not lie on the floor with your tongue out after this session, the adaptation is still powerfully important to your overall fitness. Have a good setup, Take a deep breath and push the earth as hard as you can and lift the weight of the world on your shoulders!
