Yeah! It’s Friday baby and that means it’s time to FIRE IT UP! FIRE IT UP! The week has been fun and different. All week has been training for todays testing day. Yesterday was a bit of a sampler with the 1k row and many crushed it! I have enjoyed seeing you all respond to the slightly different programming and being open to going after it.
What has been your favorite part of the week? What did you enjoy the least? Please give your feedback in comments. In fact, as a challenge, I would appreciate if you began commenting daily on your results in the comments section of the blog. We will be looking each day for your results and feedback on the WOD. Your participation will provide great insight.
ODDS & ENDS
- No 8am Track Practice this week – Coach Voci is away this weekend and there is quite a bit going on inside the gym. It will resume next weekend weather permitting.
- The Strength Challenge begins and Hydrostatic Weighing is this weekend. The CrossFit Total is being programmed for the entire gym whether you are participating in the challenge or not. Expect to be in the gym for 1.25 to 1.5 hours as the Total always is a bit longer. Classes will start on the hour. The back squat and press will be completed within the hour and then members will move to the platforms to complete the deadlift.
- CustomFit Meals – I would like some feedback from those that have ordered. Either drop me a line or just post to comments.
- If you signed up for the Challenge or for Hydrostatic Weighing. You will receive and email to remind you of your scheduled time. Please be on time.
