This week has been a massive week of PRs. It shows that you guys have put in the work and are now reaping a very good harvest!. On last count, we've done over PRs this week. Now that our strength building cycle is over, what can we look forward to in the next 8 weeks.
Now that everyone is armed with new and current 1 RMs, we shift our focus from absolute strength to finding out what we can do with those numbers. Can we use that strength to generate more power? In the CrossFit world, power and volume is king. It doesn't matter if you have the strength to lift something really heavy once, if you can't do it a number of times more. Most workouts have rep ranges that go well into the double digits and you are required to do them with speed, for time. This is what we hope to now build as we move into our next 8 weeks while not losing any of our strength on maximal loads.
So here's a quick overview of what the weeks will look like:
Clean and Jerk Technique
Gymnastic Stamina (Push and Pull)
Long Conditioning (20+)
Conditioning & Midline
Team work outs
Oly Lifting Technique
We hope you guys enjoyed the last lot of WODs and look forward to setting new benchmarks, as well as honing new skills and improving our gymnastics overall as a box.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
