In this part of the training cycle I found the athlete was making good progress towards goal 1, but from looking at their details from one months post-start to another it seems they didn’t make a lot of gains after the first month. Now, keep in mind that this is coming from a teammate who is not a coach nor educated on what you should be looking at during your workouts. It may be time for them to start looking into programming or learning how to measure progress and set goals at whatever level they are starting out with crossfit. In this case it might mean doing some more research around programming and setting short term goals so when they meet up at “crossfit” time without knowing much about crossfit its easier for them to set realistic short term objectives and track their results so they can see if any changes in diet or weight loss have been beneficial in advancing toward goal number 1.
Another thing that would be helpful is having their PRs updated each week at each workout that would be written down next to goal 2 even though its hard for us here in “West Michigan CrossFit” we urge you to get your results posted somewhere on health club boards or online where others can see new PRs made by advanced athletes; because, lets face it; eventually someone will start asking how did you do last week? We congratulate all of our members new wins on Facebook (don’t share like crazy like April did) but remind all of them of
How To Sign Up For The Scaled Crossfit Games?
1. Go to the Crossfit Games website and fill out this form: https://signup.com/go/3yfMUKx 2. When you set up your profile, be sure to check all the boxes in step 1 under “Things You Might Want To Know”. Not doing that will lower your chances of getting into the event and also serving as a better explanation for what you’re trying to do in the open ever since it’s been mentioned for both males and females (and we don’t want anyone at Open Regionals to not know who we’re people). Also add some information about yourself such as age, gender, weight class, athletic background etc… This should be enough information so someone can write down “Gymnast” or something similar when writing about each rando athlete they see on their screen at Regionals. So if someone sees an athlete with “Gymnast” in their profile and sees that person after Regionals done their event(s), the person knows exactly who that came from- which is good since it’ll help explain why we’re writing rules like this in one place for all regions instead of having different policies used just here and there! Let us know if you find any mistakes! 🙂 3. There’s a discussion topic over here on how to get registered: http://www.crossfitgames.com/forums/active-discussion/659826-scaled-regional-formula Q
Crossfit Up Dog at Core Fitness in Myrtle Beach, SC
Ready for the Afterburn? Now that you’ve burned some serious calories at your HIIT class, it’s time to take your body one step further. Once again, head over to Core Fitness in Myrtle Beach and pay attention to the instructor’s cues. When you arrive, you will notice a group of people inside this facility who are in much better shape than you are. These gym rats know what they are doing, so listen closely! While everyone else is resting between exercises (and likely eating pretzels), keep moving—your circuit starts here! Go ahead and warm up with some low intensity cardio activities like elliptical or stair stepper; then jog along until your lungs feel like fire (you might not be able to talk!). The goal is to burn off all of the extra energy stored up during your intense workout earlier today. Once the sweat starts pouring down your face (you may need to drink an entire bottle of Gatorade!), engage in these intense interval sessions: Pyramid Circuit – Jump rope until dizzy Force Circuit – High knee pushups Hang Knee Deadlift – 1-legged deadlift You can keep going deeper into failure by increasing weight carried during each movement throughout the circuit. Try carrying more weight overhead while jumping rope, challenging yourself by kickboxing with hanging knees, or throwing kettlebells overhead during burpee squats. Keep adding resistance for maximum difficulty while keeping
