What an amazing experience to have you back in the gym training with us. It just goes to show that there isn't anything that can truly replace coming into the same space, working together, and getting a good wod done.
Thank you for also adhering to our policies and helping to keep everything safe as we practice our socially distanced workouts. I feel like it's gone pretty smoothly!
We'll continue to be diligent with all the extra cleaning until we hear differently from our health authorities.
Now many of you are likely sore... And many also may be VERY sore. This is simply the result of your body not being accustomed to the stress of CrossFit training, and it will take a bit of time to adjust for sure.
Don't be afraid to take a rest day or two and move lightly between workouts. If the past two months is any indication, we're not going anywhere!
As we move to practice deadlifts, be sure to adhere to the tempo and your coaches' advice. Stay light and focus on form and it will pay off down the road!
Keep fit and have fun
TRAINING WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY
WARM UP: 3 rounds of
10 double leg glute bridge
10 plank T rotations (5/side)
10 plate halos (5/direction, slow)
SKILL: TEMPO DEADLIFT
These deadlifts are quite different. Not only will you have a slow tempo as you lower the barbell, you'll also be letting go of the barbell at the bottom of each rep, standing up, and re-setting. This means that doing each set is essentially a series of well executed single reps.
This will be a lot harder than a regular deadlift and you'll have to be extra vigilant in setting up properly for each rep.
4 x 5 reps @ 5 second lower, full re-set on the ground
We have a unique double workout sequence for you that will be done for total time, with a 3 minute rest in between the two components.
