Eric’s on a road trip Monday through Wednesday, so that means you’ll be getting a big dose of JT for the next few days. I’ll be blogging and running the evening classes.
This week we’re working on Pistols – those awesome single-legged squats. I really enjoy having this as a skill of the week, because it’s a common CrossFit skill, and yet at the same time it’s uncommon to find a CrossFitter who can bang out reps. At the CrossFit Games in California, it became clear what affiliates programmed Pistols and which ones didn’t: Pistols came up in one of the Affiliate WOD competitions.
I think it’s fair to say that single element shifted the results of the multi-day competition significantly. You either have Pistols, or you don’t. It doesn’t take much practice to get competent with them, and I have confidence that you’ll see huge progress this week by working on these a few times. Get focused this week and you’ll be more prepared for anything – and that’s what we’re striving for, after all.
I heart today’s workout. A nice big pull to start your day, and then a whole lotta pushing to keep you moving towards your goals. See you in the facility!
Strength: Deadlift 3-3-3-3-3
WOD: AMRAP 10
7 Dumbbell Push Press (20% body weight in each hand)
Fight Gone Bad has raised more than $2 million in its first four editions. This year LIVESTRONG, Wounded Warrior Project, and the CrossFit Foundation are benefiting from the fundraising efforts. On Saturday, September 25th we’ll be running our heats. Justin Shaughnessy has raised $2,200 to date, ranking him third among all fundraisers! CrossFit Fenway has raised a combined $3,376, placing us 8th among all affiliates. We can win – but Justin can’t do it alone. Register today, and join the fight as part of the CrossFit Fenway team.
The Sox are at home all week, so there is NO free parking for evening classes at CrossFit Fenway on Monday. (Come early to find street meters or 2 hour visitor spots back on Peterborough, if you must drive.)
