Due to a date conflict with the NLI CrossFit competition on June 23rd we’ll be moving the TAPS fundraiser workout back a week to Saturday, June 30th. There will be a minimum entry donation per person to be part of the workout. The workout will be a team workout with 3-person teams, and the movements will be basic enough so that all fitness levels can challenge themselves. This is a great opportunity to introduce friends and family members to CrossFit while also helping support a worthwhile organization. The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) will receive the day’s proceeds, and you can learn more about TAPS by visiting their website or reading my earlier post. Sorry for the confusion but we want to include our athletes competing at the NLI and also want to be able to cheer them on in person.
I’ll be honest, I slacked a little this week recording PRs on the white board but I’ll do my best to mention the few I got.
On Monday we Pressed and followed it up with some Tabata Pushups, Squats, and Rowing/Airdyne.
Tuesday was a potent combination of Deadlifts followed by “Helen” (3 rounds of 400m run, 21 KB Swings, and 12 Pullups). Definitely a posterior chain and grip taxing day but a lot of folks did well.
Wednesday we Front Squatted heavy followed by 5 Rounds of Push Press/Jerk, Pistols, and Situps.
Thursday we worked on fine-tuning everyone’s kettlebell snatch and spent some time linking together skills on rings. Noteable achievements include:
On Friday we performed heavy double in the Clean and hit two 5-minute couplets with running and toes to bar, and rope climbs and burpees. A potent combo to say the least.
Today we’re performing a “chipper” workout. The only way to get through it is by constantly chipping away at each movement. Work to get PRs in consecutive Double Unders, Box Jump height, consecutive pullups, or in your handstand pushups. Pick one or two and strive for PRs today! As always, post your PRs to comments and share your progress with folks!
80 Double Unders
50 Box Jumps
40 Overhead Lunges
20 Wallball Shots
10 Handstand Pushups
