Repeater- no, not the Fugazi album.
Category : Weekly Blog
Hope you had a great weekend and some of you may have watched the Super Bowl! What a great game for Manning and I loved the half time show! Those types of days are filled with friends and food. Two of my favorite things. I hope you all indulged and did not feel the least bit guilty! You were right back in this week crushing your WODS, your commitment to coming to workout every week gives you the freedom to indulge every so often!
At Jab Crossfit we repeat WODS every so often. Measuring progress is essential in Crossfit. If you did a WOD 6 months to a year ago and repeated it there is a great chance that you have have gained strength and endurance since the last time you did it. I love those days! Nothing feels like progress than knowing you lifted heavier weight and/or shaved minutes off your time! This is the beauty of Crossfit, to improve our fitness! Like our favorite Coach Tyler once said, numbers don’t lie!
Another reminder that the Open begins in just 2 weeks! When you go to register, please make sure you select Jab Crossfit as your affiliate. Hope you have all enjoyed repeating past Open WODS lately! This gives you a chance to see if you have improved since last year and if you are new to Crossfit to get a glimpse into what the Open will be like! This week we hit an old WOD that some find very unpleasant. 7 min AMRAP of burpees. Nobody likes burpees but in doing the workout you partnered up and “coached” each other, keeping track of how many burpees your partner is doing in those 7 minutes. Cheered them on! This is a lot like what the open WODS will be like, doing the workouts in heats and partnering up to keep track of your scores. The workouts are hard and sometimes its even harder to keep track of how many reps you have done in that moment of high heart rate, loud music, adrenaline pumping through your veins, everyone cheering you on. Believe me, it’s fun! It’s challenging! Nothing feels better than to hear Coach yell “time!” at the end and you collapse on the mat feeling like your heart is about to burst from your chest.
Lastly, a reminder that on Presidents Day we will run one wod at 10:45am! Hope you can all make it! It’ll be a good one!
Keep up the great work everyone!
