Front Squat Friday:  The final chapter…

After two months of doing some Front Squats every Friday, things are coming to an end pause.  Leg endurance has improved across the gym for those who showed up diligently all while, for some odd reason, Friday was also the day many of you decided to try out one of the auxiliary classes.  Next Friday will not have any Front Squats since it’ll be Halloween and you guys will be much too busy doing SPOOKY, so enjoy these while you can!.  With that said, Front Squat Friday will resume in November AND the programming will have some minor adjustments that all of you will appreciate*.

*Please note that none of you will actually appreciate it,

Handstand Hold (add Wall Runs)
Support L-Sit
Hanging L-Sit Pull Ups (work negative if you don’t have them)

WOD: “Rowing Helen”

3 rounds for time of:

500M Row
21 Kettlebell Swings (24/16)
12 Pull Ups


Happy almost Friday…

Due to the inevitable and impending doom upcoming inclement weather, please be advise that a lot more rowing will be taking place (hopefully you went to Monica’s rowing clinic!).  Helen is a baseline workout that normally includes 400 meters of running instead of rowing.  This particular detail is a bit of a double edge sword.  On the one hand, you are on a rower and therefore you have no stairs to climb up and down.  On the other hand, you are on a rower.  The only reason we are doing 500 meters of rowing is because that is the way we have always done it.  Maybe one day I will change my mind.

But not today,

Love me some lifting complexes (which is the proper plural)…

With October coming to an end, there are a few things that I need to bring up to you guys!  The weightlifting competition takes place this weekend (This Saturday at 2 PM at box 2)!  If you want to participate, please e-mail coach Justin immediately!!!  Also, after today, there will only there will only be a week remaining the Paleo Challenge.  Most importantly, however, is that there is only one more weekend to endure!  I don’t quite recommend staying up to midnight so that you can eat and drink yourself back to October 1st.  Make some good decisions still for something spooktacular awaits you this Halloween.

And it’s a horrendously hard workout,
