Drew's Words of Wisdom...
"I am superior to you, for my father is a man of consular rank." Another says, "I have been a tribune, but you have not." If we were horses, would you say, "My father was swifter?" "I have much barley and fodder, or elegant neck ornaments." If, then, while you were saying this, I said, "Be it so: let us run then." Well, is there nothing in a man such as running in a horse, by which it will he known which is superior and inferior? Is there not modesty, fidelity, justice? Show yourself superior in these, that you may be superior as a man. If you tell me that you can kick violently, I also will say to you that you are proud of that which is the act of an ass.
-from the Discourses by Epictetus
Focus on the things you can control things like integrity and compassion. Discourage yourself from focusing on the things outside your control.

Beach Wod - June 9
Once this cold weather finally clears, let's head to Tybee to sweat and play together on the beach. It's our annual Beach WOD.
Marine Corp 10K in DC
Every year, Mark Hummeldorf ran this race in Washington DC to honor his fallen brothers. This October 28th, we'll run to honor him. Then give him a high five in Arlington. It sells out quickly.
Registration is open. Mass transportation may be possible once we have numbers on people going.
This week we are working off of the 2RM we set last week. Come in, get warm, and work up quickly to the 90% mark.
Monday is deadlift day then a super fast triplet of HSPU, Burpees, and Snatch.
Tuesday is MacPress day followed by some much needed run intervals.
Wednesday is back squat day followed by a great couplet of rowing calories and toes to bar.
Thursday is establishing a push press 3 RM followed by the benchmark workout Isabel which is 30 snatch for time.
Friday is front squat (based off of the last 3RM we did) followed by a cool format of moderate weight cleans with rounds of pull-ups, push ups and box jumps.
Saturday is a partner chipper. with double unders, lunges, situps, AAB cals , and bar muscle ups.
Sleep, water, and fish-oil are our recommendations for recovery - especially in a week like this one where we are lifting heavy.
Summer Skill Clinics - over the next few weeks you'll be hearing more about some Saturday skill clinics. These are opportunities for our coaches-in-training to hone their presenting skills on various topics in which they want to widen their knowledge base. Each clinic will be supported by one of our full time coaches and free for members.
