Workout of the Day

1402, 2017

I hope all you love birds had a great V Day.  Keep your chest up on the Dumbell deadlifts, I am only going to have you touch front end of dumbell on floor for rep to help keep your back from rounding.  This 10 min is going to sting!  Don’t rush movements stay upright when coming off ground with step overs.  Not a bad idea to rest after 11th Deadlift, pick up 12th dead then go strait to front squats.

1st-45 Sec Double Unders

2nd-45 Sec Plank

Post lowest DU total

A bunch of great stuff going on tonight.  Vanessa, Nat, Ang, Laura C, Leanne, and many more getting a lot better at the Handstand Walk.  Urban flying under the bar for a 265 clean complex and Jason O moving under the bar fast as well.  Finally some great performances on the WOD by Lindsay R, Emma, Sumer, and Marisa who hit Butterfly C2B pulls the whole WOD.  We have a long one, 35 min to be exact with built in rest.  Depending on numbers we will most likely set up 3 groups that rotate through so pair up with 1 or 2 athletes your same strength to share the Snatch bar.

We have 3 teams competing this weekend at the “Snatch my Heart” comp at Ross Valley CrossFit.  Matt F & Janelle, EJ & Laura C, and Danny A & Ally D will be representing 38 North on Saturday.  The Comp starts around 10:30am and goes to 4pm.  If you have not been to a comp this year this will be a fun, close opportunity to go cheer on you fellow athletes.  The address is 34 Greenfield Ave, San Anselmo, CA 94960.  Happy B Day to Amy S!  I love seeing this young lady walk through the doors to the late PM WOD’s.  Amy is always up for a good conversation and loves music and movies so she is easy to talk too.  Amy also always gives it all to every workout she comes to.  The thing that I love about Amy is good workout or bad she always walks in again and this has happened over and over for close to 4 years.  Thank you for continuing your journey to health and fitness within our community Amy I hope you had a great day!

We have 14 registered for the open with 2 weeks left.  We have had 40+ the last couple years lets get up to that level again.  Here is link to register  It is 20 dollars you won’t regret.  A B Day shout out to Shannon KS!  Shan has been with us for about 6 months and has undergone some major improvements in her journey towards a healthier lifestyle.  As of mid November this young lady was down 25 pounds since joining our community.  Shannon’s always got a smile on her face, she you can clearly tell she enjoys and embraces the punishment we have a tendency to dish out.  As Shannon learns more and becomes more proficient within this sport the sky is the limit for this one.  Happy B Day Shannon!  The goal of this WOD is to try to only put that bar down once in the set of 25 snatches.  Move fast the clock will move fast on this WOD as well.
