WORKOUT OF THE DAY

  • Thursday 4/24/14

    4/24/14

    Warm-Up:
    -Prep as needed
    -It would be beneficial if you show up early to warm up and mobilize so you have more time for the WOD

    Mobility:
    -Prep as needed

    A. WOD
    “Crossfit Total”
    -1RM Back Squat
    -1RM Shoulder Press
    -1 RM Deadlift

    *A Crossfit Total is the total poundage of 3 lifts: the back squat, the shoulder press, and the deadlift, in that order. This “WOD” does have rules. It basically works like an official lifting meet. You may only make 3 attempts at a 1RM for each lift (you may do as many warm-up sets of 2 or more reps as you like though). You also may not decrease weight on your 1RM attempt if you fail at a weight. For instance, if you attempt 135 for your first back squat 1RM and get it, then jump to 155 and don’t get it on your next effort, you may not decrease weight for your third attempt and must try 155 (or heavier if you like) again. This is 3X1RM attempts total, not 3 at every weight.

IS THIS FOR ME?

CrossFit is for EVERYONE, and CrossFit CU is an encouraging, supportive community. In our training sessions you will find people of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities, and we LOVE it that way.

AM I STRONG ENOUGH?

CrossFit is INFINITELY SCALABLE, meaning we can design a workout to meet you where you are.  There is no threshold of fitness you must cross before starting, and everyone can reap the benefits from this style of training.

IS THIS JUST "GROUP FITNESS"?

This is NOTHING like the standard “globo-gym” approach to group fitness.  We are a team.  We look forward to seeing each other at every workout.  We cheer, inspire and challenge each other in our pursuit of authentic fitness.

IS IT HARD WORK?

Of course.  But that’s where the results come from: not just physical changes, but also gains in mental toughness, determination, and pride in having accomplished something you had previously thought impossible.
