Happy Monday! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are ready to get back to business. Congrats to anyone that fulfilled Dana's junk-free week last week! Small steps make all the difference.
Let's take some time to review today's skill: Overhead Squats.
It is important to work on overhead squats because they require a ton of technique, balance, and strength. They are also perhaps the most important thing you can practice in order to improve your snatch lifts. Unfortunately, however, since they are a pain in the butt for most beginners, not enough people opt to practice them unless they're part of the programming. This article gives 6 tips on improving your overhead squats. Read it, learn it, practice it, and eventually...LOVE it!
October 4th. 9am. Cortland Pumpkinfest. Be there for the 5k run/walk! I want to get a group going from Seven Valley CrossFit to show our stuff. For the rest of this week I will be posting reasons why you, yes YOU, should do the run. The first reason is:
Completion. This is for all of you who maybe don't consider yourselves "runners". Imagine how good it would feel to be able complete the 3 mile course?! Don't think you could do it? Look back to all of the WODs you've done in your time here. There had to have been a few where you read the white board and thought "there's no way I can do this" but completely surprised yourself by finishing! How good does that feel?! This will feel that same way. So what do you have to lose?!
