Hope everyone had a relaxing and stress free weekend. We are starting this week off by taking life by the “Handlebars” and totally crushing this 4 round workout. Cals on the assault bike, toes to bar and clean and jerks will have you holding onto 3 different kind of bars. This is what we like to call a balanced workout, cardio, gymnastics and barbell work. We run into Tuesday with a front squat focused two part workout, where we will build to a heavy single from the rig then get into “Front Runner,” where you’ll complete 200m runs before building in a rep scheme of front squats for this 10-12 min workout. When Wednesday comes along you’ll see “WaterLogged,” that starts with a buy in of a 1,000 meter row into a descending rep scheme of dumbbell snatches and burpee box jumps. “Skippy” comes into play on Thursday, where you’ll complete abmat situps, dubz and deadlifts every 3:00 for 5 rounds. This is a little strength and conditioning mixed together, you’ll have the chance to move fast with the body weight movements but building in weight for heavier deadlifts. Moving into the first Friday of May we invite newcomers to come and try CrossFit for free on this day. We will be running, rowing and performing 2 rounds of strict CINDY during this 20 min AMRAP called “Spaceship.” Saturday morning you’ll get the chance to work in teams of 3 for “Sleep Walk.” This workout has 3 separate AMRAPS that descend in time and cals on the assault bike, but will increase in barbell weight for overhead squats, hang squat cleans and thrusters.
FROM COMPTRAIN MINDSET:
“If you put limits on everything you do – physical or anything else – it will spread into your work and your life. There are no limits, only plateaus, and we must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident when he was younger. He was told, he would never be able to walk again.
In that moment, he had a choice. To believe that his life was limited, to which a self-fulfilling prophecy would have followed. Or, he could choose to believe that there truly are no limits – only the ones we impose on ourselves.
Bruce made his choice. He chose to believe in cause and effect, and he put in the work. When times got hard, he got harder. When he reached a plateau, he recognized it for what it was. Not a limit, but the next challenge. And he found a way to overcome.
Bruce made his choice. When we reach our next challenge, what will be ours? Will we see it as our limit, or as the plateau that it truly is?
