Pre WOD: 5 sets of:

5 Deadlifts

10 Toes to bar after each set of 5

WOD: Crossfit Games 2015 Teens (14-15) WOD #6: For time:

60 Cal Row
40 Shoulder to Overhead (115/75)
60 Deadlifts (115/75)

You must have done at least 230/150 in the Pre WOD in order to do the WOD as Rx. Otherwise YOU HAVE TO SCALE!


Let’s talk about things that I love…

If you are unaware, I was on a two-person campaign against nuts this past July.  The idea was to not have any nut or nut products of any kind for the entire month.  It was hands down one of the worst ideas of 2015.  Before July, my caloric intake was supplemented by peanut butter (yeah, I know) to a ridiculous level and I needed desperately to spread my gastronomic wings.  So now that the nightmare July is finally over, here are a few of the things I learned:

  • It’s very hard to give up the things you love
  • I learned about the things that I cannot live without
  • I further defined my definition of “things that I cannot live without”
  • If you want it, you are going to figure out how to do it and…
  • Excuses are for those who don’t really want it yet
  • I have learned how to better restrict myself

It wasn’t a great sacrifice by any means, but I definitely gave up something that I loved.  Now that I can eat it again, I appreciate it even more.  This was beneficial to my sense of moderation, my weight, and my health.  I hope that some of you can benefit from this blurb or maybe get an idea in improving your diet.

It’s worth it,

Remember Bryce?…

One of our former coaches (who now owns Fulcrum Atheltics) is running a charity event known at Boot Campaign’s Push Ups for Charity.  Here is what he had to say about the event:

Every year the Boot Campaign (a national non-profit) puts on Pushups For Charity, which is a nation-wide fundraiser for the unique needs of veterans and military families. Their ultimate goal is to build patriotism, raise awareness, and money to provide housing and assistance with medical expenses to those who have risked their lives to protect the American way of life. This is our third year hosting the event, last year we raised close to $6,500 dollars and have a goal of $10,000 this year!

If you, by chance, will be in the Attleboro area, drop on by and compete in several short sprint workouts and workout for a good cause.  On Saturday, August 8th, we will all be doing the 90 second AMRAP as part of our workout and I will provide a link on the blog for us to help Bryce’s team reach their donation goal!  Thanks Bryce for bringing awareness and providing us with this challenge.

Stay tuned for more,

Pre WOD:  20 mins to find:

Single heavy Power Clean

WOD: Immediately after Pre WOD:  3 min AMRAP of:

Power Cleans (80% of your Pre WOD)

Rest 2 minutes and then…

5 min AMRAP of:

6 Over the Bar Burpees
9 Toes to Bar
12 Wall Balls (20/14)

Total reps for both workouts is your score


August preview…

In no particular order:

4 workouts from the 2015 CrossFit Games.  New batch of weekend workouts (all have been made harder improved from previous iterations).  A remix of the August Baseline (look it up).  Retesting the April Baseline.  Finally doing some heavy deadlifting!  All brand new “longer” WODs (hope you like running with Kettlebells).  Plenty of chippers…back-to-back-to-back AMRAPs…sprints for time…and best of all, my birthday workout.  It’ll likely include only things that I love, like swimming and Spanish.

It’s going to be awesome,
