Well we wrapped up the 2019 Open with a bang on Friday. Thanks to everyone for coming out and showin’ up for that one! That was a workout that tested the mind even more than the body. We had some outstanding performances once again. Great job to Natalie and Nathalie on those chest to bar pull ups. We had a few of you participating in your very first CrossFit Open, congrats it only gets better 🙂 Thanks for all the delicious food and drinks you guys are the best! It is always a rewarding time when we can celebrate all the hard work with our friends in fitness.
For this weeks overview of March 25th through 30th 2019, we start off Monday off with “Wall-E”, an AMRAP style workout consisting of Single Arm Dumbbell Push Press, Double Unders and Wallballs. Tuesday look forward to practicing Snatch technique before completing “Inner Tube” which consists of Power Snatches, Toes to Bar and Burpees. On Wednesday we see a workout with three AMRAP 5’s separated by 5 minutes of rest between. In this session called “Dead Broke” there is a Rowing buy in; directly into Deadlifts and Box Jump Overs in the remaining time. Then Thursday’s workout might give you “Helmet Hair” working on Handstand, Pullups, walking Lunges and Situps. For Friday, “Macho Mile” is on deck. There will be running and rounds of the “Macho Man” complex (1 Round of Macho Man is 3 Power Cleans, 3 Front Squats and 3 Push Jerks). Finally on Saturday we finish the week out in teams of 3 completing an AMRAP of Assault Bike, Dumbbell Snatches, Double Unders and Rope Climbs called “Rope-a-Dope”.
From CompTrain Mindset:
“We’re not a product of our circumstances. We’re a product of our decisions.” – Steven Covey
The man on top of the mountain did not fall there.
Everything we have in our life, is a result in the choices we’ve made.
This isn’t an attempt to shame our past. It’s purpose is quite the opposite. It is to empower our future. A tragedy for many is a life lived through circumstances. To see the past as a constrictor of the future. A self-imposed box, limiting possibility. Steven Covey’s quote drives us to realize, it’s the opposite. That *we* are in control.
Who we become tomorrow, will be shaped by the choices we make today.
