Community Updates Jan 19, 2015
Saturday's 11:00am New Class Debut was nothing short of awesome!
We are coming off a high after last week's workouts. "Loredo" was especially fun to do and coach. I'm not sure exactly what has gotten into this community but it's awesome. All the energy and finishing together mentality has really had an impact this week. So keep it up!
It can be a little awkward at first to cheer for someone you don't know well after you finish your workout. Shoot even we do know someone it can be a little wierd if you dont know what to say. It does get easier! If you find yourself unsure of what to say, try this. Get down on the floor and finish that last push up or burpee together. Go do the last run. Sometimes you don't need to say anything at all.
This week's programming is geared to towards prepping your metabolic engine for the opens. You'll see strength work consisting of movement complexes and EMOMs. There will Gymnastics skill work every day to challenge your position and establish better movement patterns. The workouts are meant to be constantly moving this week and fast and we will be scaling accordingly.
Remember you are welcome to stay up to 45 minutes after class to work on the skills listed on the skill board. You can do more than 1 one if there are multiple areas you'd like to work on. For those of you that like to come in early. Go ahead and roll out, grab a lacrosse ball or PVC pipe, and start prepping for the workout - you'll be more ready than if you just sit or stand around.
This week we've got box jumps and double-unders skill clinic. Two movements you are sure to want to get down! Learn how to double under without doubling over and some box jump strategies for speed and accuracy (btw in the opens, there are more "no reps" on box jumps than any other movement).
Saturday morning there is also a nutrition for performance skill clinic. Note that performance and weight loss are two very different goals and nutrition for each are very different.
Here are all the upcoming skill clinic days and time:
Box-jumps / Double-unders - Tues 1/20 6:30pm
Nutrition for performance - Sat 1/24 10am
Row / Burpee technique - Tues 1/27 6:30pm
Snatch - Tues 2/3 6:30pm AND Sat 2/7 10am

Strategy Roundtable - Tues 2/14 10am

Also just around the corner:
