“The true masters are still on the field when the fun ends.” — Reinhold Messner
Get to a nutrition seminar this month! Spots fill up fast. SOGO is really heating up and we’re almost to the end. Jordan Garcia will be here this weekend for the handstand workshop. The 4th annual Guardians for Garrett Kickball Tournament is upon us!
Get to those nutrition seminars! We have another one this week out North at 6 p.m., and in two weeks, August 22nd, we have another specialty seminar at West called “The Skinny on Fat” where Coach Sara will talk about why fat has gotten a bad rap over the years, and why you really need it in your nutrition.
The workshop is filling up and spots are limited! Check out the blog post or Facebook page for more details, or just e-mail Coach Rick!
I know you guys are stacking on a ton of reps and the commitment has been awesome! I was baffled to see so many athletes finish the Bring Sally Up planks and immediately hit up some sit-ups and handstand holds. Amazing work guys and gals! Here’s your next week:
Cut out sugar! That’s right, no added sugars. Check your labels! Usually this is the first thing in the challenge and the hardest, but you will get the most bang for your buck in changing your nutrition by cutting out this one little ingredient. You will be uncomfortable for a few days if you have a lot of sugar in your diet already, but just commit to it!
Novice: accumulate 4 minutes
Rx: accumulate 8 minutes
Rx+: accumulate 12 minutes
Don’t forget, you have all the other things as well! Run/row, sit-ups, push-ups, handstands, and planks.
Guardians for Garrett
We’re getting teams together for the Guardians for Garrett Kickball Tournament taking place on August 26th! It will be a lot of fun and it’s for a great cause. Mark your calendars and keep an eye out for more information on how to register your teams. We’re looking to get a team of 10 from each location.
Monday – Alternating EMOM+
Alternate between rowing, KBS, rope turns, and l-sits every 90 seconds. Just enough rest to make a hard interval each round!
Tuesday – Tank Top Tuesday!
Break out those tanks today! It’s all shoulder work. Start with some handstand push-up work, then a metcon of 2 rounds of 25 and 50 handstand push-ups and wall balls.
Wednesday – Strength Day
Work up to a heavy single on hang power cleans, then hit a tabata mash-up of sit-ups, RDLs, and jumping lunges. Focus on quality reps and strength development, not just all the reps you can get.
Thursday – Shoulder and Midline Stability
Work through 3 rounds of KB waiters walks, ring push-ups, and medball runs.
Wednesday – “Rich”
Start off with 13 full snatches at 155/105, then move on to 10 rounds of 10 pull-ups and 100 meter sprints. Finish with 13 full cleans with the same barbell.
Saturday – Synchronized CrossFit
In teams of 2, complete 5 rounds of toes to bar, hand release push-ups, deadlifts, and box jumps. Pick your partner wisely! Push each other, but don’t try to beat them.
