Have you been having lower back pain?  Check out this short clip on the pelvic fault while squatting and how it may be causing your pain. If you have even a minor fault in a regular squat, the pistols we do today will absolutely magnify that fault.  This video is definitely worth your time today, please check it out!

Friday Night Fights RUN

“Glory”
5 Rounds for time of:
800 m Run
20 G.I. Jane

I know this is a WOD to “cherry pick” out of, but you will greatly benefit from it and you will not regret doing it once you are finished. Make sure to choose a bar where you still have a challenge completing the pull up.  This is a great WOD for those of you who are still gaining strenght on your strict pull up as the G.I. Jane includes a jumping pull up.  Please make sure to get this one in as the snow will be flying soon and we need to take advantage of the dry roads while we can!

Here is a video to help you get pumped up for such a challenging workout!

Something I would really like to start discussing with everyone is the importance of rest days.  You should be taking one at least every 3-4 days to ensure your body has time to rebuild everything we are working on in our WOD’s.  Rest days don’t have to be spent on the couch, but shouldn’t be so “active” that you might as well count it as a WOD day.  Read this article written by Nuno Costa at CrossFit Invictus about his views on rest days.  I think he has a great perspective.  More to come!

I hear you guys are sick of me making you run. Too bad for you, it is not going to change until the snow flies, and I have your best interest in mind! Let’s kill some running goats together, shall we? Check out this video from the CrossFit Journal discussing Pose Running. It is challenging to learn, but will greatly improve your efficiency, thus increasing your speed (and decreasing your time running during WOD’s!).

This one is so much fun you will have to come in to find out what it is!

Watch this video to learn how to maintain midline stability during double unders. May seem like overkill, but it will turn you in to a more efficient beast during double unders as well as translate stability in your core to other movements. Lastly, to our athletes with, ahem, bladder issues, this is a great fix for any wetness issues! I tried it yesterday and it was like magic.

The grass fed beef sale brought to us from Teton Waters Ranch was a huge success! Be sure to watch for posts in the future stating when they might be coming back with more great deals.

“Goals”
Push Press 7×2

“Glory”
AMRAP in 15 minutes of:
2 Rope Climb
Bear Crawl length of pull up rig
10 Box Jumps (24/20)
Lunge back length of pull up rig (back to ropes)

***Something to focus on today from Coach KJ: The bear crawl is going to mess you up in this workout! Try to take two deep breaths before tackling the box jumps. I would like for you all to experiment with resting on top of the box instead of on the ground staring at the box. Practice rebounding off the ground between each repetition. Keep your chest high, gaze forward, and body as close to the box as you can to increase efficiency.
