I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. Long weekends usually bring a lot of travel along with plenty of rest and relaxation. Look at these breaks from the gym as a form of recovery, whether it be physical or mental or both. I have been seeing a lot you coming in and giving it your all 4,5 and 6 days a week. Allowing your body to recover from this stress is paramount, so don’t feel bad about missing a few days of working out. After all, it is long-term fitness we are looking for right?
With that said, this Friday is the return of the “Wanna Throwd0wn” throwdown. We had a great showing for the first event, and had a lot of people hit some awesome PR’s on their cleans… which is especially awesome after that first brutal 6 min WOD. This week’s WOD won’t see any PR’s, but I can definitely promise you that is going to be spicy!
Last week, we didn’t ask participants to denote whether they were competing in the scaled or Rx’d division, but this week you will need to make that decision. That’s not to say that you can’t compete with those that are going prescribed, but from here on out everyone will be working with different weights.
The top 3 place standings after the first event are as follows: Men’s 1) Dave Young 2) Kieth Craig 3) Nick Ditto Women’s 1) Cori Bernardi 2) Alex Black 3) Hannah Woodstock. Congratulations everyone! Just remember that there are 3 more events, so keep up the hard work. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at this Friday’s event. If you weren’t able to make the first throwdown, don’t fret. You are still able to compete this Friday and the following Fridays as well. If you have some free time, please come help cheer on everyone competing this Friday and enjoy some tasty beverages afterwards.
