Today is the first day of our bi-annual Fitness Testing Week and it's also the first day of #podiumweek. Podium Week is about recognizing and celebrating your progress. It will help our community see what REALLY goes on at a CrossFit gym. And it flood the internet with positive images of success, we could all use more positive images on FB and IG right?
Before the workout, your coach will ask you which podium you’ll aim for. For example in today's workout it could be one or all of the three lifts and/or it could be your overall total. So, give some thought as to what you want to achieve today. After the workout list your PRs and #podiumweek on a small whiteboard and your coach will take a creative picture of you holding it up and smiling. All of the #podiumweek photos will be uploaded into an album on our Facebook page. Let's have some fun and show everyone how awesome you are!
Today are are retesting our CrossFit or Powerlifting Total. We do this twice a year as part of our bi-annual fitness testing. We agree with Coach Mark Rippetoe who said, "Stronger people are harder to kill and more useful in general." Coach Rip created today's workout. He wrote an entertaining article on the importance of strength training and the rules behind the workout. You can read the article below.
