Athlete Storage update - over the coming weeks we are transitioning from storing items on the gym floor to storing them in the bathrooms to make room for more training space. PLEASE only bring what is truly needed (keys and a water bottle) into the gym. There will be more shelves and hooks to hang bags coming soon in both bathrooms. Make sure belongings are locked out of sight in your car. Thank you for help.
Drew's Weekly Words of Wisdom
Music is powerful. Music moves my soul. I watched Endgame recently and listened to the opening song by Traffic. This song was written YEARS ago but very eloquently tells the fate of IronMan (Mr Fantasy)
Dear Mr. Fantasy play us a tune Something to make us all happy Do anything, take us out of this gloom Sing a song, play guitar, make it snappy
You are the one who can make us all laugh But doing that you break out in tears Please don't be sad if it was a straight mind you had We wouldn't have known you all these years
The reason I write this is listening to the song now (i downloaded it immediately after watching the movie) brings an emotional response out of me. It reminds me of the old Bards in the renaissance that would sing of knight's chivalry. If you could write a song about your life what would it say? Could you even write one? Have you done enough to warrant a song that brings forth an emotional response in another? Write a new song today.

All lifts this week will be done off of feel at a tempo of 32X1. The 2 sec pause in the bottom will get a little spicy.
Monday- super fun chipper with some repeat movements from last week. This is meant to build in intensity until the burpees at the end.
Tuesday- We are going to run OHS and TTB in a switcheroo style rep scheme.
Wednesday- Bulletproof day. Gang this day is important. We believe movement is life. We also believe in learning to move pain free daily.
Thursday- We will practice the skill of muscle-ups. After we will do a fun triplet of double unders, double kb swing, and high box jumps
Friday- we will EMOM style a Hero wod called Holleyman HSPU, Wall ball, and power cleans
Saturday- is a long cardio-tastic WOD

Memorial Day Murph
Memorial Day Murph is a gym-wide sweat fest to honor those who have given all for our freedom. All athletes are encouraged to participate on Monday May 27th. The workout is "Murph" which can be done either solo or in teams. Scaling options are presented, so every athlete can participate. We encourage athletes to attend classes on Saturdays leading up to Murph as this will prepare your body for the high volume work.
