Back Squats!

Jabletes!

Welcome back to our regular programming.  Apologies to those of you who’s work/life schedule did not allow for you to get into the gym for our limited class schedule last week.  I hope you took every opportunity to go for a jog, swim, paddle, do a home workout, or something that got your heart rate up, made you sweat and made you smile.  Summer is hard, I know this for a fact.  Think of trying to get into the gym 1x a week.  Once is better than nothing.  Twice is better than once in a week, and so on.  Don’t forget that handy website, www.travelwod.com.  Some great body weight workouts you can do anywhere!  Last week we were camping out at Lake Kachess.  It was absolutely beautiful there, the lake was huge and crystal clear.  We brought our stand up paddle boards and I spent a good portion of Wednesday paddling.  It felt wonderful!  Lots of sun, fresh air, cooking outdoors, sleeping in tents.  Loved every second of it.

I watched Fittest on Earth today on Netflix!  Though I did watch the Crossfit Games last summer it was a great way to get excited for the 2016 Games that are just over two weeks away!  You’ll be able to watch the games come July 19th on ESPN, on youtube and on watchespn.  I am so excited!  If you missed the games last summer the Fittest on Earth was a great recap of the men and women, though I did miss the masters and teens in this documentary.

This week we will be doing a 1RM Back Squat!  Coaches are hoping to see some new PR’s this Friday!  This number will be very important in our strength training as you will use it to base your percentages off from here on!  So excited!!

Keep moving!
