Bad to the Bone

Friday Apr 7 2017

Anxiety is a horrible thing. It keeps us up at night, causes mood swings and in combination with a poor diet it can kill us! Well maybe not kill us but it's a definite contributor. I see a lot of people coming in to our gym with that look of "I can't do this" and I've heard lots of people tell me they purposely skip because they don't know what something is or how to do it. Anxiety is trying it's best to keep you out of gym. Stand up to anxiety by letting us bear your anxiety. What exactly does that mean? Well what it means is we coaches are here to teach you, motivate you and keep you accountable and you should let us do our job. You pay us to help you be healthy, remember? I would love to see everyone rid themselves of all of their anxiety but for now we'll just work on ridding it at CFGB. Smile and remember we never stop learning and with persistence and coaching from the greatest CrossFit coaches in the world (I may be a little biased but I really do believe it) you will overcome what you do not know!
Have a great Friday!
1.) 20 minutes to complete 5 rounds of:
10 Single Leg Barbell Deadlift (10 each leg)
10 Bent Over Barbell Row
note: add load each round. few pointers on the single leg deadlift: keep your hips square, keep a slight bend in the working leg, until you find your balance touch the plates to the ground and once you have your balance the bottom position will be approx 1" off of the ground causing tension throughout all the reps.
2.) Bad to the Bone
Push Jerk 185/135lb
Bar Muscle Ups
*3.) 3 rounds for time:
7 Muscle Ups
20m Handstand Walk
5 Freestanding Handstand Push-ups
20m Handstand Walk
*4.) 5 minutes ME Back Extensions
note: move with precision as your intent not speed
