FIRE IT UP!
The last week has been awesome! Friday kicked it off with 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games Open 14.1. CFB has more than 50 athletes participating in the Open. The energy was awesome. Carla B leads all CFB members with a score of 362 and currently sits 24th in the NorthEast Region. The top 45 females in the region will qualify to Regionals at Reebok’s Headquarters in Canton, MA. Dave Young is leading the men with a score of 347 and sits 384th in the NorthEast Region. Hats off to them both for their efforts!
In case you missed the previous communications, we will be running the Open WOD in class each Friday. If you cannot make it into the gym on Friday, then you may come in on Saturday or Sunday but you will need to have someone accompanying you to judge your performance. There will be a group that will retest on Monday as well. Again, you will need to schedule someone to judge you in advance to ensure that there will be someone available for you.
RING THE BELL BABY!
On Wednesday morning all 7 participants in the 7am class banged out Personal Bests! The bell was working on overtime and it was fun to witness. Audrey, JPerlo, Linh, Vijay, Patrick M, Matt, and Kapil all were machines in the back squat. I like programming the straight sets at higher intensity (5×2 – work up to a challenging 2 and hold it for all sets) for the barbell lifts. It removes any ceilings and encourages you to train based off how you are feeling instead of a fixed percentage. It’s not always going to be a PR day but when it is…RING THE BELL BABY!
