Before you know it, summer will be upon us. With that in mind, let’s dust off the tank top, get the bronzer, and get ready to pump some iron.

Over the next three months, we will have two main focuses. Our number one goal over this cycle is to make you a better runner. We will be running a minimum of two times per week (Mondays and Fridays) with the ultimate goal of preparing for both “Murph” and a trail Ragnar Relay in late May and June.

The second goal is to pack on as much muscle as we can, particularly in our ‘Which way to the beach?’ muscles, if you catch my drift. We will be doing 2 upper body intensive days (Tuesdays and Thursdays) that involve growing the muscles of the chest, back, arms, shoulders, and abs while still having a ‘CrossFit’ feel with a higher heart rate and a good sweat.

Lastly, having just finished the Open, we want to keep up our overall fitness & skill we have made so much progress in which is where Wednesdays and Saturdays will take on the very classic CrossFit feel where we are pushing the envelope with our existing skillset. You will still have a chance to do plenty of weightlifting AND gymnastics.

“Hold Up… Hold Up… Hold Up, you lost me after you said running.”

Let me break it down for you,

Monday: Running Intervals

Tuesday: Upper Body

Wednesday: Classic CrossFit

Thursday: Upper Body

Friday: Threshold Running

Saturday: Team

That’s what you can expect from us, what we expect from you is the following:

– 1 Set of: SLEEP 8 HOURS (Each night)

– 3-4 Sets of: Protein, Carbs, Fats (Each Day)

– 8-10 Sets of: Cup of Water (Each Day)

– Trust us, we have and always will continue to scale things, running outside doesn’t make that any different

– Take progress photos, 1 before April 5th and 1 after July 1st
