“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.” Swami Vivekananda

“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never tasted victory or defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt

Refresh, refresh, refresh. Crossfit has still not posted the first WOD for the CF Open. Its seeming like pretty much everyone who is signed up cannot make it on saturday to do it. Sooooo if you will be gone over the weekend you can do the WOD during open gym or during a class if it will not interfere with the rest of the class. Right now the plan was to do the workout on Saturday at 10am. If we do it on Sunday would anyone be able to make it then?
Newport beach crippler
30 Back squats (225/155)
Run 1 mile
Coaches corner: For the crippler choose a weight that is challenging but allows you to do multiple reps each time. It should not be 30 sets of 1. We will use the racks and if need be run multiple heats to complete the WOD
