Friday 6/10

Increase the load on each set.   This is a good time to talk about warming up your lifts properly.  Watch James sometimes - he hates to warm up, but he takes the squat seriously.  Before he starts loading weight on the squat, he will start with the empty bar for at least one set.  Then he'll add a bit of weight for a few more sets.  This way we let our bodies know what we want them to do, and we get a specific warm-up for the ligaments and joints we are going to be working.  On that same note, doing a bit of running is a good warm-up for a WOD which includes running.  This is also a good time to drill our technique so it is ingrained when the weight gets really heavy or the blood starts pounding in our ears.

This weekend the SouthWest CrossFit Games are happening right here in Colorado, in Aurora.   Get down there if you can to watch it!  Some of the best CrossFit athletes are in our region, like Chris Spealer and Jasmine Dever.  If you can't get out there, then check out the games website.  There is sure to be some coverage.

We are tossing around some times for extra barbell training.  It looks like we can offer time at 5:30 pm Tues and Thursday in addition to the 10 am time slot.  Let us know if you are interested.   A bit of extra strength certainly never hurt a CrossFitter!
