Last week's Dog Days of Summer challenge winner is... Chris Grim!  He talked the talk, and turns out he could walk the walk.  Way to go Chris! You can pick up your Brix gift card at the box! 

 

 

Also, great job to anyone who attempted this challenge.  You all did a lot of double unders in not a lot of time. Now onto this week's challenge!! We're switching gears from tricky double unders to moving large loads over long distances with a 300m farmer's carry! Show us your strength!

  

 

*Don't forget about signing up for a personal training session with a coach on the movement of your choice!  If you're an unlimited member, and you have a skill or lift or anything that you want extra help on (which everyone does!), sign up for a session during open gym to work on it with a coach!  These sessions are 15-20 minutes long, and can focus on anything that you'd like help with improving.  During these sessions those pesky double unders or kipping pull-ups might finally "click", or maybe your clean PR will increase after a long time of being stuck.  If nothing else, these sessions will give you many many pointers and things to think about while you keep practicing on your own.  Don't miss out!

   

 

Skill:

Squat cleans/Front squats

 

WOD:

8 Minute AMRAP:

20 Air Squats

10 PushUps

   

 

The standard for a push-up in CrossFit is that your chest hits the ground at the bottom and that your elbows lock out at the top.  This might be new for a lot of you; these definitely weren't the standards in P.E. class and aren't even the standards at Jet's practice, as I observed the other day.  The push-up is an underestimated body weight movement that requires immense strength as well as incredible stability in the core region.  When performing push-ups, our focus should be on not "sagging" in the mid-region and avoiding widening the hands as we get tired.  This is why we use the handy-dandy "backpack" to scale push-ups instead of going on our knees, which doesn't promote proper technique or progression.

  

 

 

 At least you have it better than this guy...
