A week without football . . . what are we to do? Thankfully we have the Superbowl next weekend to look forward to! I’ve resorted to watching the X Games and Figure Skating in order to get my Sunday sports fix. Not bad. Not the same as grown men crashing into each other at full speed, fighting for a paltry piece of pigskin, but not bad.
In the upcoming weeks we’re going to be performing old CrossFit Open workouts. The reason is twofold. For one, the workouts are awesome. For another, it’s great preparation for the Open workouts that we’ll be doing a month from now. Think of it as a trial run, a building of mental fortitude. Typically the Open workouts are no different than a WOD we would do in the gym on any given day. The difference is the mindset. When the Open rolls around, you’ll want to do your best, especially those of you that sign up. That extra push, the extra rep with ten seconds left. That’s what I’m hoping you’ll feel on these workouts.
And for the big announcement! Jab CrossFit is introducing a Barbell Club starting Saturday the 7th (2/7). Can’t say how excited I am for this! As opposed to a regular class, a Barbell Club is a class where for the hour, we focus specifically on Olympic Lifting. There’s no cardio. This is the class where you can really dial in your lifts, get down to the nitty gritty, take the time to really practice.
But wait, there’s more!
The Barbell Club will run 7:30am – 8:30am Saturday mornings. From 8:30am to 9am, we’ll have our traditional Saturday WOD, where we have a long team workout. Best of both worlds.
Feel free to reach out with any questions! Look forward to seeing everybody this week.
