Fun Saturday

Post WOD GU law school chat.

Gabe says "I'm done".

Matt is trying hard to hold back the tears of pain. This isn't his first time doing this carry, flip, drag relay, he knew what he was in for.

Tony finished with 100% effort.

Kyle Young (pictured) and Ryan Blecher (SHOCK AFL2 ) both do a heavy farmers carry during their WOD. They are both looking to step to the next level and are prepping for workouts with a few AFL teams.

We had a great Saturday this last weekend. It was busy, people were working hard and having fun. We pulled out the heavy dumbbells, tire and sled for one of our favorite short, but intense WODs. If you haven't tried it you should give it a go and see how you stack up. We have a few variations, so anyone can do it.

In the last post we put a couple of links to some great articles that everyone should read, whether you are new or not. One was about Rhabdomyolisis and the other was about recovery from workouts (they are both eye openers) and are highly recommend. In case you didn't know, the recovery process from WOD to WOD is just as important if not more so than the WOD or the intensity of that WOD itself. What does that mean, YOU NEED TO RECOVER FROM EACH WORKOUT. More is not always better, anyone wanting to see favorable adaptations from physical activity or training needs to find the right balance of: frequency, intensity and volume with recovery scheduled in to allow your body to adapt to the stimulus you impose on it. DA!
If you have any questions please ask myself Angela or one of the trainers we will be more than happy to guide you and help.
