Lest we forget. 

 

In the week leading up to us doing Murph on Memorial Day, we decided to throw another Hero WOD at you guys in order to better prepare you for what is to come. Murph is a particularly tough workout and today's WOD will help to exercise and improve your mental toughness. Although mental toughness isn't one of the 10 general physical skills of CrossFit I think that it should be included in that list. If you are lacking the grit and determination between the ears then you will probably not make it too far into your CrossFit journey. 

 

During the workout today, I want you guys to remember why there are even Hero WODs in the first place. As many of you know, CrossFit is an extremely popular training methodology with many first responders. For years firefighters, police personnel and military members have benefitted from performing constantly varied functional movements at a high intensity. That is the CrossFit recipe. Trust me. It works. The members of those organizations know this as well and when one of our fellow CrossFitters dies in the line of duty we can honor them with a workout. Today we will be performing "Jack" and it is one hell of a WOD, the last time that we did this one was on November 5th, 2014. 

 

 

 

Lets do our best to keep Sgt. Martin in our thoughts during the WOD today, especially once things really start to get tough. 

Lest we forget. 

 

Before I leave you guys for the day I want to remind you that several of us will be heading out of town this weekend to go and watch some serious athletes throw down at the East Regionals in Hartford, Connecticut. I just so happened to find a brand new video about my favorite athlete from our region, Matt Fraser! He talks about inner strength and his difficulties with finding it sometimes. It is great to hear that the current 2nd fittest man on earth also has bad days mixed in with his good days. One of the big differences between him and other athletes is how he reacts to his bad days. He also briefly touches on the injury that he sustained while he was a competitive olympic weightlifter and as a result of that injury he now understands the importance of listening to his body. If you have a couple of minutes, give this video a watch:

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work
due to no back up. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
