Hey Athletes,

Quick update on the Garage games, 2 more members from the gym are competing this weekend.  Coworkers and really good friends Chris Lynch and Wesley Black are competing at Crossfit Southie representing the gym.  There’s a lot happening this weekend so let’s get to it….One of our 1st members Chip Batchelder is having a fundraiser at Clery’s on Dartmouth St this Friday November 9th from 530pm to 9pm to benefit South End Little League Baseball (http://www.southendbaseball.com/).  Tickets are $50 and I posted the link so you can get more information on the subject.  Knowing Chip there will be plenty of food, fun, and prizes for everyone.

Also on Friday, Page’s birthday is Friday (holla at your boy Pagey Pants) and right after competition class at 7pm, everyone is invited to celebrate at the gym.  Page also requests that everyone dresses to impress!  This is a great opportunity to connect with people from the gym.  This will be our 3rd week doing this and if the previous 2 weeks have been any indication this week will be fun so please don’t be shy, if you’ve been a member for 9 days or 9 months we would love to see you. (Sunshine, Jason Casey, and Chip, I’m leaving you in charge of all post game activities).

Today I’m going give you a video of someone who literally fought the odds

Humbly Yours,

Let us get the details out of the way because I have a sweet video to show you:

  1. Detail 1)  All of the deadlifting taking place this month will be done without an inverse grip unless you are going for a 1RM (which you will soon).  I say that because I want all of you who are doing the Deadlift to use it as a reflection of how you are going to grab the bar when you clean (which is not an inverse grip).
  2. Detail 2)  Please note that the only difference between L1 and L2 is the imposed time limit.  You run a gamble on not being able to finish in time and paying the Burpee consequence.
  3. Detail 3)  As far as the strength component goes, please stick to the level that reflects what you have been doing.  If you are new and need exposure to the Deadlift to get a better idea of how to properly perform a clean, then stick to SL1.  If you have no problem with the clean, don’t do the SL1 just because you want to Deadlift or because it is mechanically simpler than the SL2.

Sweet video time.  The first 38 seconds of this video is EXACTLY what it feels to properly land a Snatch.

How awesome was that,

Hey Athletes,

I am writing to inform any member that is interested in competing in garage games, the opens, or any outdoor races ( i.e. Tough Mudder, Spartan Races, etc etc ) that we have Competition classes every Wednesday at 8pm and every Friday at 7pm.  The classes are not a substitute to what we do but more of compliment to the hard work and dedication that all of our athletes are putting into the WODs on an every day basis.  If interested please email me at bern@reebokcrossfitbackbay.com.  If you just did a double take I know why.  I’m aware that we are all used to clever writing of Gino but I called up 3 of my friends from MIT, hacked into the RCFBB main computer and BAM! Bern K. Prince has a blogpost called Apr`es Crossfit.

This weekend we will have Josh Plosker, Coach Lauren, Coach Justin, Brendan, and Ben Eischen competing in the Garage Games at Crossfit Southie.  It will be a 2 day event and if you have never seen a competition go down this Saturday or Sunday (or both) and cheer them on.  There is no charge to be a spectator and I’m positive the athletes competing will love the support.  Speaking of The Garage Games expect that one of the WODs we do on Wednesday to be taken from the Garage Games so we can feel what they are going to experience this weekend.

I decided to end this post with a picture and a video.  The picture is of 4 men that even though are different, share a common goal of making Boston a fitter place.  The video is by far one of my favorite videos of one man’s 120 pound journey.

Humbly Yours,

Bern K. Prince
