Mobility WOD 51
Happy Wednesday Flexi-Animals,
Someone this weekend pointed out that that were really stoked that they could actually squat for 10 minutes after nearly 2 months of working at it. I thought, “Great, you can now have dinner with 2/3 of the world, or go the bathroom in Thailand.” It came out as, “great job”.
As athletes, we are digging ourselves out of holes that we’ve been systematically creating for years. Your body’s tissues are like obedient dogs. You’ve just got to train them. They will get out of your way time and time again if you just give them a little input.
Check out Crossfit.com today for a stimulating discussion on why squatting, shooting the duck, pistols, and pooing are really all the same thing. click here
Today’s MWod is about dealing with your soft tissue sliding/quality.
You need to spend 10 minutes rolling around on the pain ball. I’ve given you some ideas in the video, but feel free to focus on any area that feels matted down.
Remember: If you respect yourself, you need to drink half your bodyweight in water in ounces every day as a baseline.
Being globally dehydrated alone, is enough to significantly impair your performance by letting fuzz grow like gangbusters.
Don’t be that guy. Drink some water, like the cool kids.
RECIPE OF THE DAY: Early Summer Brunch.
Run 1 mile
Rest 4 min
Rest 3 min
Rest 2 min

How come I never knew about this. Longer toes can make you run faster

effects of high-intensity interval training. another study showing positive effects of short duration high intensity exercise.
Check this video out I thought it was pretty cool. We will not be running sub 4 miles but I think crossfitters can relate to the things being said.
I have noticed the past couple weeks, the past couple days especially, that the attendance has been a little low. Yes it is summer but dont let effect your workout and unmotivate you from coming into the gym. You dont want all that hard work to go to waste
5 rounds for time of:
30 GHD situps
250lb deadlift 15 reps
Coaches corner: If you have never done GHD situps or you are just starting them DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT try to do this WOD as prescribed.
Day 19: 19 burpees
Since I am at the gym everyday I hear some pretty funny stories from you guys about the lengths you have gone to get your crossfit fix in for the day. My favorite is someone, who shal remain nameless, leaving there 10 year old in charge of the house so they can go and work out. What is your funniest crossfit story or the craziest thing you have done to get your crossfit fix in for the day. Write your story in the comments section, you can be anonymous if you so choose. I want to hear some good ones.
