Quote of the Week 8-27-2018
“The good stuff didn’t just happen to you. You created it. Well done.”
We are now in full swing with The 631 Throwdown 3.0 partner competition. I am very excited to have catering, vendors, and sponsorships already on board. I created a video highlighting the venue and the events for social media and also posted the first WOD- feel free to share!
This Tuesday afternoon I set up another photoshoot for everyone in the gym! I would love it if everyone could show to the 5:30 that day so we can get some great shots for the website and social media. Please wear your favorite CrossFit 631 gear.
This week starts our sets of 5 for Power Snatch, OHS, and Jerk- use your numbers established last week to plug into the percentages prescribed. I also have included DB Bench Press and Pendlay Rows to round out our strength portions this week. It’s important to have your numbers ready for 50%, 60%, 65%, 75%, and then our AMRAP at 85%. After September 1st I will be implementing some software that will help you guys track these numbers and percentages more easily but until then we are going old school.
One last note on programming- I received lots of texts and comments these past few weeks about how well the strength and metcons have been going for everyone. I am really overwhelmed by all of your support and insist that it is YOUR hard work that has allowed me to push my athletes the way I have. Nothing makes me happier than getting a wall of text listing everyone’s PR increases on each lift! Programming shouldn’t feel silly or thrown together. It should be deliberate and intentional with each athletes goals in mind. I am extremely thankful and blessed that I have amazing, supportive members who execute my programming day in and day out- Thank you all.
Mel and I are about to leave for our End of Summer Party at Dipsy’s house! I want to thank the whole Ferrara clan for opening their home, thier pool, and their hospitality to us. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
ANOTHER GREAT WEEK IS AHEAD OF US- LET’S GET IT!
