Pull ups

Back squats

***listen, if you can turn your head and chat with the people around you, you are not lifting heavy enough, you will not get any stronger, and your concern of hurting yourself from lifting heavy is unfounded, you will hurt yourself with improper form, and chatting when you lift instead of holding your breath and focusing on the movements. Just saying.

50 double unders
100 kb upper cuts

Sunday was rowing, thrusters, wall balls and pull ups.

Middle of the week, and were going to focus just a tiny bit on the middle of your body...

Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles
Strong core muscles make it easier to do everything from swinging a golf club to getting a glass from the top shelf or bending down to tie your shoes. Weak core muscles leave you susceptible to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries.


Ok, so why CrossFit, or functional fitness?
Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability. For example, a squat to bicep curl is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you pick up an object from the floor or a table. By training your muscles to work the way they do in everyday tasks, you prepare your body to perform well in a variety of common situations.


Functional exercises tend to be multijoint, multimuscle exercises. Instead of only moving the elbows, for example, a functional exercise might involve the elbows, shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles. This type of training, properly applied, can make everyday activities easier, reduce your risk of injury and improve your quality of life.

YEAHHHHHHHH BUDDDDDYYYY!
