What’s up guys and gals! We hope you had an exciting Earth Day filled with being outside and enjoying beautiful East Tennessee in all her varying weather!
After our post CrossFit Open lull we have a lot of things ramping up over the next few weekends! Be sure to be tuned in to see all the events, but we’ll hit on a few here:
This weekend we have teams competing in Asheville, NC at River Rukus. This event is a ton of fun with four workouts, all outside, spanning the day. And once it’s done, you’re in beer city! So if you want to get away for the weekend head over to Asheville on Saturday and cheer some of our teams on!
Next weekend we’re in May! Whoa! It always seems to sneak up on us! The first two weekends in May feature two differ 5k’s: Girls On The Run and Mudder’s Day Madness. We have several athletes who are highly involved with these organizations and we love supporting them. Have some fun and get a race in!
Sunday May 14th our very own CFK athlete Shannon Beasley will be competing in Chicago at USA Weightlifting Nationals! We’ll be posting a link to watch online as soon as it becomes available, but in the mean time head over to her fundraising page to help her get there!
Now for your week ahead!
Monday – Squat Day!
Heavy front squats in a wave. We’ve done this one before, 3-2-1-3-2-1-3-2-1. The second set of 3 should be heavier than the first, and so on. We have a little accessory work after as well, so don’t run off!
Tuesday – Bar Beat Down
Pyramid rep scheme of chest to bar pull-ups, overhead squats, and burpees over the bar. Overhead squat weight is 155/105, so not too light! Be ready to scale because this should be sub 10, capped at 15:00.
Wednesday – Grace!
A classic workout that we’ve done time and again! 30 clean and jerks for time at 135/95. See if you can get a PR!
Thursday – Interval Day
Five rounds of double unders, running, and calories on the bike, rower, or ski erg. Rest 3 minutes between rounds and try to get that heart rate back down so that you can give your all each time! High intensity today!
Friday – Shoulder Day
Ring dips, thrusters, and walking lunges. Ring dips are hard, thrusters are light. Get done as fast as you can because you have until the 20:00 mark to find a 2 RM thruster from the floor!
Saturday – 150’s
Accumulate 150 reps between you and your partner of each movement: KB swings, Calories, and Burpees. But you have to follow this rep scheme: 25/20/15/10/5!
Don’t forget, you can head over to Asheville Saturday morning to check out a few of our teams competing in River Rukus! It will be a blast.
Have a great week!
