Drew's Words of Wisdom...
Endorphins. I got a chance to do a competition with my wife this weekend. First, she is an amazing competitor and tough as nails. I think we both experienced endorphins twice during the competition. Once as we started to feel pain, the endorphin dump kicked in and it no longer hurt. Second when those went away and the workout REALLY started to hurt, but we HAD to persevere (we were not quitting) they kicked in again. It felt really good to push through that wall of discomfort. Imagine you just did 80 wall balls and then got to get back on the Air assault bike to pump out 30 calories. It would have been easy to quit, but the perseverance endorphins were too strong. It felt REALLY good to keep going. Such is life. When it punches you in the face, keep moving forward. The perseverance will be very worth it.

We are focusing on heavy 3s this week for our strength.
Monday (Labor Day) we only have 3 classes but we are still going to squat heavy. Our workout is a play off the Hero WOD Jerry. We have a 3-4k row as a team. Partner 1 rows while partner 2 runs 300-400m . switch when the run is done.
Tuesday we will deadlift and perform the Chief. This workout is so much fun. Power cleans, push-ups and air squats in an AMRAP setting.
Wednesday- we will strict press ad do another team workout. this one combines box jumps pullups and push press. lots of reps, but split up should be very manageable.
Thursday- we get an opportunity to play with squat snatches and sit-ups in an increasing weight format.
Friday- Hero Day 2 Vogeler. Increasing distance runs with single arm kettle bell swing AND Front rack lunge steps. We will also try to front squat BEFORE the METCON.
Saturday- We will have some fun with burpees and running. come in and enjoy the burn.
