By the end of the week I would like every member to have written a goal on the board, one that is Time Bound to completion by the end of June.

A Big congratulations and a pat on the back to one Erin Carraway pictured above, sprinting around with an #80 Sand bag like its no big deal. Erin competed in her very first CrossFit inspired competition where she took SECOND! Such an awesome result for an inspiring athlete. During the course of the day Erin managed to slay a 2rm Front Squat at #165, setting a new PR and breaking parallel on her 3rm OHS, which as we know is a lot tougher than it sounds.

wpid-2015-04-20-05.17.38.jpg.jpegAnd another awesome job to the ladies, E-Dub and Mere on taking home 4th at the first annual Guns And Hoses competition. Both girls did an amazing job surpassing their own expectations set for themselves and even setting some PRs. Big Ups to E for Thrusting #135 and Mere #145. They had to pull from the ground and complete a clean before throwing that weight up in one fail swoop. Amazing support as well.

Dwayne enjoying our new Ocean Front view last night during his conditioning. If you are coming in at night, take a moment to reflect on the beauty that lays just outside the concrete jungle before it is covered by more town homes, eek!

Its Friday people, you know what that means…its time for some mental and physical tests, w00 w00, the pain train is coming.

MENTAL FLEXIBILITY
Stepping out of the struggle.We grimace. We grunt. Sometimes we cuss. It’s all part of leaving it all out there, giving it your all. But sometimes in this messy, sweaty stage, we become the struggle, and not the skill.

Consequently we may leave behind the magic sauce of a particular move. And sometimes, unfortunately, this way becomes our new norm. And we practice again and again, getting stronger yes, but often reinforcing our ways of weakness. The body is an amazing thing, compensating creatively for a glitch in our form, allowing us to finish that last set.

But what if the next time we were given one of our least favorite skills, we tried to step outside of our familiar struggle? What if we dared to go for lightness that comes with perfect form and alignment? What if we hit the “undo” button and approached it with a fresh head and a little grace?

We’ve heard it before: if you want a different outcome, you have to do things differently than you’ve ever done before.

The next time your most challenging skill comes up… fake it. Smile, become the student, and pretend there’s nothing else you’d rather do.

-MAIA, our resident practitioner of practice.

Workout of the Day
3 rounds not for time
10-12 T-2-B
6 T-G-U (3 each arm)
1:00 Pillar

Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)

*In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
