Are you recovering properly post-workout? Or do you live sore all the time?

Kris and Hugh stretching those hammies

  1. What do you do IMMEDIATELY after finishing class? Are you stretching like the gentlemen above? Do you work on accessories given to you by one of our coaches? Don’t just wipe up and leave- you need to cool down.. and most of you need to stretch and mobilize for a couple of minutes.
  2. Are you feeding yourself as soon as possible after training? You’ll notice some of your swolemates bring food and/or shakers with them to get the proper calories (and amount of calories) in just after they put their equipment away. Hell, some even start on their protein/carb drinks right in the middle of the training session. Be prepared so you don’t grab that donut or beer you think you deserve- save that for Friday or Saturday.
  3. If you do happen to work on some extra accessories or mobilize, are they the correct ones for you? Is it the correct dosage for maximum effect? If they didn’t come from us, I think you should run it by us so we can make adjustments- we see you all the time so we might have a better read.
  4. We offer 2x/week for those doing MORE than just training with us- they put in mileage running or cycling, they play intramural sports, they are serious about other outdoor activities, etc. All other humans should be on 3x/week or more to really get the intended stimulus for the program.
  5. How many hours of quality sleep are you getting a night?

As always feel free to talk to a coach if you need any assistance!

Our SINGLET SATURDAY CREW (minus a handful who couldn’t stay the entire session):

We want you super prepared to take on the volume and intensity (and soreness) that MURPH will bring next Monday, so we’re planning to start each class with some stretches so you know what we’re looking to accomplish as a post-workout treat.

On tap this week: weighted pullups, power snatches & double unders, Week 2 of our 5×5 back squats, tabata front squats, burpee box jumps, CHELSEA as a prep workout- see if your timing is on point, dumbbell thrusters & running, the TRIPLE 3, a “20” chipper, bench pressing, and a deadlift & step-up workout. Both the Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting MAY CYCLES also finish this week. You can register for the next series here.

+ 10 CrossFit Trainers Give Their Best MURPH Tips – BarBend

Anyone else spend part of their weekend watching people run on treadmills?!

CrossFit WOD for Monday 5/21

weighted pullup 5×2, then

15-25-35 reps for time:
power snatch, 35/25kg
4x double unders

1st round = 15 power snatches + 60 double unders. 2nd round = 25 power snatches + 100 double unders. 3rd round = 35 power snatches + 140 double unders. This workout contains the same volume of power snatches as the hero workout RANDY, but with double under “breaks”. Scale the double under multiplier (3x, 2x, 1x). If double unders are too difficult use single unders and stick with the original multiplier of four.

Post time to whiteboard!
