Week 1-Custom Programming

Week 1-Custom Programming

Here's an update of how my week is going since I started the custom programming for CrossFit. First off, I'm exhausted from testing the last two weeks and I still have two tests to go. I'm sleeping at least 8 hours a night and eating extensively more, but it's not quite enough, so I'm gonna … Continue reading Week 1-Custom Programming

Daily Gratitude 11/12/2019

Happy Tuesday! If you're in the southern USA, I hope you're ready for the nasty cold front coming in and that you're going to stay cozy! As for the rest of us, that's all debatable. Here in PA, we're staying steady, but temps are really starting to swing. Either way, I'm choosing to be thankful … Continue reading Daily Gratitude 11/12/2019

CrossFit Open 2020- 20.2 Recovery from Active Life

How was 20.2? I thought it was another lung burner and I came up just short of 20 rounds (19+17). I tried to do an EMOM-style, but there just wasn't enough recovery time between sets. I could have done this workout RX, but I felt rundown more than usual. Also, I don't practice my double-unders … Continue reading CrossFit Open 2020- 20.2 Recovery from Active Life

CrossFit Open 2020: 20.2 Warm Up from Active Life

20.2 is here and it's looking gnarly. Have you seen it yet????? Amrap 20 minutes: 4 DB thrusters; 8 Toe-to-Bars; and 24 double unders LOL. It doesn't seem that bad, but pacing yourself will be key during this workout. It'll be easy to go hard probably the first 5 or 6 rounds and then you'll … Continue reading CrossFit Open 2020: 20.2 Warm Up from Active Life
