Good evening ladies and gentlemen.
We have made it back home safe and sound.
The whole trip was such a great experience from my lens as a coach, a gym owner, and even as an athlete myself training with some great people I met throughout the competition.
Throughout the week you will get a breakdown of the events, the days, the stories, and most importantly of the people from up in Montreal. Mike and Anikha were able to train beside some incredibly supportive, competitive, amazing people, all the while LeeAnne and I were able to meet many of the same type of people in the stands and in the athletes area. I am super proud of our gym and our community and our members and we believe we all represented you extremely well during this event. Thank you for continuing to be part of such an amazing space.
What people saw from around Eastern Canada is Mike and Anikha perform extremely well and at the end of the weekend find spots on the podium. What they didn’t see is the work they put in week after week working on their craft doing the little things right with all of you people doing the exact same thing. That makes me the most proud. They came from within the community of 782 to show off what we do so well. Stay positive in the face of adversity, support one another through hard workouts (and hard times), and give full effort with what they are given on that day.
We are going to work on moving fast. In CrossFit most of know now how to move well over a long period of time. Tomorrow we want to test you out moving fast within a short period of time. There were two works on day 3 that inspired me to test out that all out effort capability.
Conditioning - Before you go any further promise yourself you aren’t going to complain, Ok?
1mins on - 2mins off x 10 rounds
10/8 T2B/Leg Raises/Knee Tucks
Parallette Facing Burpee
Choose a number on the bar you can hang on for unbroken reps every SINGLE round. And these reps should be fast and furious and you should start them as soon as your minute begins. As soon as you come off the bar drop to the floor and get to work on your parallette. We’ll go in teams of 3 to keep people cheering you on and keep your energy high through all 10 rounds. As soon as you get to the burpees you want to get to work flying over the bar. Have some fun as well. And yes, I know, burpees twice in a row. No better exercise to get fit. Stop complaining.
