Today’s wod was a ton of fun and lightning fast! Just keep one partner moving that bar as fast as possible if one starts to slow down let the other step up and crank them off. There isn’t much to this but to just go! Gotta love it! Get some rest stay hydrated and ill see you tomorrow for some fun

That was kinda “NUTTS”

Posted: April 24, 2013 in WODs

“Nutts”
10 hspu
15 deadlifts 250/165
25 box jumps 30/24
50 pull ups
100 wallballs
200 double unders
400m run 45/25

Gotta love the Heros! To pay our respect to their sacrifice we sacrifice a little bit for them. Nutts is one of may favorite hero wods one, because its a chipper and two it’s extremely verse and challenging. A little bit of everything to cover all the crossfit bases. What was also nuts was the size of the classes wow! Good attendance still missing a few so if you see em tell em to get in cuz they are missing all the fun! Also lets try to stretch out and fill up the am class. If the afternoons continue to fill up ill have to require sign ups for each class and you can only go to that one… It helps the flow of classes as well as allowing me to safely program the wods 😉 keep it up guys! Love it!

Heavy thrusters an burpees

Posted: April 23, 2013 in WODs

Strength
10 min emom
Even minutes
5 squats 70%
Odd minutes
30 sec handstand hold

Wod
3 rounds
15 thrusters 135/95
15 burpee over bar

Bam! Nice start to the week and fun but challenging strength emom and a grinder of a wod. The best advice I can give for a heavy thruster is treat it as two parts…. The first one is the one that requires great focus and patience, the front squat. Treat this as if it is only a front squat, keep the elbows high, the torso upright and the tempo perfect. Don’t feel rushed to explode out of the hole as with the heavy load it will throw you forward and cause you to push the weight out in front or fail completely. Do the front squat and the front squat only until you’re 3/4’s if the way up. Now we are in the real drive phase In the heavy thruster, if we’ve done this correctly we’ve done a perfect front squat we took our time and came up with a vertical torso and heels still of on the floor now we are in part two and in a perfect push press position. Now we explode the hips into the bar (which should still be in contact with the shoulders) and drive it off the shoulders to complete the lift without needing to take a step forward to recover.

Nice work today guys lets take care of those bodies And get ready for tomorrow!
