We messed around with this Monday night and most athletes found it much harder than it appears in the video below, however still useful with understanding the transition. Maybe some of you will try it out on Thursday?

So you’ve mastered the muscle up? Try out a back up rise…

I personally introduced the hook grip to 11 athletes these past two weeks… Have you given it a try yet?

The difference between winning and succeeding

Coach Wooden is the man and I’ve always enjoyed hearing his thoughts. I know P3 succeeded in the 2014 CrossFit Open. It was another amazing year of PR’s, hard work, and fun! I also can’t wait to see the 19th ranked female in the world, Maureen dominate 4 more workouts this coming weekend giving her a chance to move on to The CrossFit Games! We find out the details of her workouts Thursday night and will develop a game plan of attack. Which means that due to the unknown and unknowable aspect of this event, we can’t give you an exact time/day for you to come and cheer/watch every workout at this time. We will do our best to keep you all up to date with her progress over the course of the weekend and respectfully ask that you allow her the ‘space’ to dominate each of these workouts.

It’s Been a Beautiful Week

Couldn’t imagine a more beautiful week at the gym. The beautiful weather always makes it easier for me to squeeze in an extra workout no matter how tired or bad I feel. If only we could keep the garage doors open year round…
