We’ve got a great week ahead of us at the box! I know most of you will be relieved to know that there will NOT be any burpees this week. We will see some fun and challenging lifting complexes, and an opportunity for a one rep max. Lots of barbell, and lots of time on… Read more »
This week you can look forward to a lot more lifting, especially at the front end of the week! There’s even a one-rep max test day for the front squat, as well as a bench press day. I know we are all “burpeed-out” so to speak–you will see them this week, but nothing like the… Read more »
Can you believe that we are already entering into March?? The first week of the month features some awesomely challenging programming! We are getting a real variety this week, including some movements that we haven’t seen in a while (pistols, sumo deadlifts). The week will bring some short, high intensity workouts, but also features a… Read more »
This is going to be a challenging week, my friends!! Don’t forget to bring in those knee sleeves, you’ll need them quite a bit this week. Squats feature in a majority of the workouts, but they are relatively light weight so you will want to really speed through them when they come up in a… Read more »
What a great week we had last week!! Anyone still sore from all those squats on Valentine’s Day? Hopefully you used the weekend to recover and eat some well-deserved chocolates and treats with your loved ones. A little treat now and then is good for the soul! Our prescription to burn off those dessert calories… Read more »
This week we are getting heavy (again), and our legs are definitely going to get the brunt of it!! Back squats, front squats, deadlifts… throw in a bear complex (if you don’t know what that is, you’ll find out on Friday) and you’ve got a recipe for some serious leg fatigue!! But we love that,… Read more »
The programming has been super fun and challenging lately, and this week is no exception. Hope you like barbell work, because we will be using barbells every single day this week. We can expect to see the return of some movements that we have been working on, such as deadlifts, snatches, and back squats. There… Read more »
This week is going to be epic! Lots of barbell work this week, guys–and lots of chances to go heavy, too, for those of you looking to challenge yourselves. Every day will feature a barbell movement of some kind. But we have a lot more than just lifting this week! There’s a lot of gymnastics-type… Read more »
Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! This week’s programming looks challenging (and fun!) so make sure you commit to coming several days! We will be working with the barbell EVERY DAY this week (except Saturday), mostly in our “skill” portion of class, but also in the WODs. We begin and end the work week with… Read more »
Almost halfway through January! For those of you still working on your New Years Resolutions, keep up the good work!! We’ve got another great week at the box ahead of us. This week features a lot of shorter workouts, which means we should be dialing up the intensity! In other words, these workouts should be… Read more »
This week is going to be as awesome as last week! A few longer workouts, and a few movements we haven’t done in a while. Prepare yourself for some challenging cardio, too! I heard a lot of great feedback about the programming from last week, so I can finally let the cat out of the bag–we are now following COMPTRAIN programming!! I loved the Canadians, but I think this change is what’s best for us moving forward. If you haven’t heard of Comptrain, do a bit of background research and read up on Ben Bergeron. He trains a lot of Games athletes, including Katrin Davidsdottir. This does, however, mean that EVENTUALLY (not quite yet) we will be switching from Beyond the Whiteboard to SugarWOD. If you already have SugarWOD, we are listed under Forward Strength and Fitness.
Just a reminder to make sure you’re hydrating and that you’re coming to class properly fueled to work. If nutrition is something that you are struggling with, you’re not alone! We are here to help, and we have some Nutrition Services that can help you reach your goals. Shoot me a message if you want to chat about it!
I hope everyone is taking some time to enjoy summertime fun! Remember, we train in functional fitness to make us better at all types of physical activities. Let’s all try to branch out of our comfort zones and try something different! Kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, trail running… just the tip of the iceberg. Just don’t forget the sunscreen, guys!
Have a great week, and I will see you at the box!!
