WEEKLY UPDATE: APRIL 29TH-MAY 5TH

Article Of The Week
To anyone who feels that rest days are not as high a priority as training.  Rest days are important as quality of training will lead to increased performance in multiple capacities (strength, stamina, muscular endurance, etc.) and prevent injuries:

How long have you been crossfitting?
Since September 2011

Why do you crossfit?
When my gymnastics career ended in high school, I needed to find a way to stay in shape so I started running.  After a few years, I got bored and running stopped being a challenge. Then I turned 30 and found that I needed to run longer distances to get the same results as a few miles in my 20’s.  So I needed to make a change to shock my body.  Boy did I find that in Crossfit.

What is the best part of S3?
I love being around like minded people. Great friendly competition with top-notch coaches.

What keeps you coming back?
Each day is a challenge to survive the workout and improve on the day before. You can’t beat the feeling you get at the end of a tough WOD when you prove to yourself that you can do it especially those days when you want to quit after the first minute (usually on rowing days).

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
All of them! Makes me feel like a kid again.

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
I have a mental block with ring muscle ups.  One of these days I’ll get it.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
Overhead squat- it requires focus, balance, core strength and flexibility.

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Snatch- it’s so technical and difficult.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
I may be weird but I don’t hate burpees or box jumps.

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
I do, however, hate double unders, rowing and wall balls.

What is your favorite girl WOD?
Cindy- I seem to be better with WODs that involve a lot of rounds with low reps.

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
JT- a lot of great gymnastics movements with handstand pushups, ring dips and push ups.

What is your least favorite girl WOD?
Karen- 150 wall balls.  Need I say more…

What is your least favorite Hero WOD?
Manion- 7 Rounds: 400 m run, 29 back squats (135/95). My legs have never been that sore before or since. Ouch!

What type of WODs do you prefer?
Chippers – These are fun for me in a sick kind of way. I like working my way through a long list of different movements. I get a little bored with single movements or couplets.

How long have you been crossfitting?
September 2010

Why do you crossfit?
This is the only way to have healthy competition and camaraderie while not playing college sports.

What is the best part of S3?
All Crossfit boxes have a personality.  S3 is serious about each one of us improving every day, being the best athlete we can all be and having fun doing it.

What keeps you coming back?
There is always something to learn.  As soon as you get some technique, it is time to build to a heavier weight or string reps together.  The hard things are tough and we all struggle, but in Crossfit…even the things you are good at you need to do faster or better to show yourself you can.

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
Muscle-ups- They were so hard to learn.  I am pumped to get a couple in a row.  Now it is time to get 10 in a row.

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
Ring hand stand pushups- I tried them once…it was not pretty.  Maybe I can get brave enough to try them again someday.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
Deadlift- It is straightforward, but to do it properly and heavy requires all you got.

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Press- I think everyone hates a strict press.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Double unders and a technical light lift for time.

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Running is awful.

What is your favorite girl WOD?
Fran- I remember this being the first girl WOD I did… so she broke me in.  I think it is the most well known and someday I hope to have a sub 3:30 Fran.

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
Nate- It has the best of everything…MU’s, HSPU, and heavy KB swings.

What is your least favorite girl WOD?
Diane- She messes with my mind.

What is your least favorite Hero WOD?
Don’t know the name and I have never done it…it is on the wall…it requires someone to run forward and backwards.  Absolutely insane…I hope to never have to do it.

What type of WODs do you prefer?
Metcon type WOD’s around 12 minutes in length.  It would have some double unders, clean or snatch, pullups and maybe a muscle up or 2.  A couple things I am good at, a couple things to practice, and a weight light enough where we can go fast.

WEEKLY UPDATE: APRIL 15TH-APRIL 21TH

Level Testing:
For the next couple months we will initiate level testing once a week.  Level testing is a great way to asses the overall progress in variety of movements, skills, and lifts.  Please print the copy of the link below and bring to class on the days we test.  For level testing days, pick 2 to 3 things you would like to test and then have your crossfit instructor watch and check off completed tasks.  Once the task is complete, you can move on to new tasks!  Pick one of the levels(1-4) you believe would be a great challenge and try to complete all tasks at that level before moving on to the next level.
http://crossfitseattle.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Skill-Levels-poster.pdf

Olympic Lifting Class:
Beginning next week at 10 am on Sunday’s, we will introduce an hour long Olympic Lifting Skills class coached by Drew. The purpose of the Olympic Lifting Skills class is to take a much more detailed look at the two Olympic lifts (Snatch/Clean & Jerk) than the average CrossFit WOD class.  Instead of focusing on the movements as simply “ground to overhead,” we will break down each of the three pulls and learn how to master your body with the barbell to achieve new personal bests. The class will essentially start from square one: focusing on presses, pulls, and position.  When athletes are fully comfortable with the basics, the actual full lifts be addressed.  This program is 6 weeks in length and will benefit the athlete to attend from the very beginning, as the program will progress in sequence.

RX+ Challenge Class:
Starting next week, S3 will introduce an RX+ Challenge Class!  This class will be taking place at 6:30 pm one or two nights a week to start and is designed for those individuals interested in a higher intensity workout with emphasis on a competition style environment.   The 6:30 time slot will be for individuals that will not need to scale any of the movements and/or weights for the WOD.  For those attending the evening classes, if you are not consistently completing workouts as prescribed (RX), please keep attending either the 6PM or 7PM class.  As always, if you would still like to do the RX+ workout but are unable to attend the 6:30 PM class, please do so!

How long have you been cross-fitting?
July 2010

Why do you crossfit?
I love the limitations that crossfit places on my body & mind.

What is the best part of S3?
The S3 Crossfitters , trainers, and intensity of each WOD; from 5min AMRAPS to the capped 45 endurance ones (BRUTAL).

The silent competition of the “White” Board.

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
Ring Rows

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
Handstand Push-ups: Taxing after just 1 “Modified”.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
I Love Deadlifts! One of my moto’s is “High & Tight” for this movement, which aims to validate tight glutes.

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Sumo Deadlift High Pulls- I have issues with the high elbow movement.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Weighted Lunges and Ab-mat Sit-ups.

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
The DREADED Double Unders.. Yes, my fellow crossfitters after 2 .8 years I am still inadequate with this move.

I love Cindy. All 3 moves (Pullups, Push-up and Air Squats) push me to complete more rounds than I did the time before.

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
Griff- 800 meters run, 400 meters backwards run, 800 meters run, 400 meters backwards run for time. I like the challenge of running backward. (Never attempt outside S3 lol).

How long have you been cross-fitting?
Last week was my one-year anniversary.  I remember walking into my first foundations class while a “weird” workout was happening in the other room.  I had no idea what they were doing.  (Seriously, not a single person was doing dumbbell shoulder shrugs in front of a mirror!  What was wrong with these people?!)  If it wasn’t for Kirk dragging me in, I might have just turned around and went home.

Why do you crossfit?
I’m a very competitive person and CrossFit feeds into that.  I don’t care if I’m playing four-square with my daughter’s friends, I still want to win!  (Let’s face it; some of these kids need to lose once in awhile.  Right?)

What is the best part of S3?
The “best part”?  That’s a toss-up.  Between hearing Ryan talk about how his new purchase from QVC that is going to allow him to lift 5 more pounds or Gina’s completely uncensored story of the day, I don’t know if I can pick a winner.  Truly, you can’t beat the atmosphere.  Everyone is supportive and has a good time, but puts on their game face when they hear “3, 2, 1”.

What keeps you coming back?
Whether it is business, education, sports or CrossFit, I always want to be better than I was yesterday.

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
Kipping pull-ups- Clearly I have some technique work to do, because I hurt my shoulder doing a bunch of them recently.  But I love the move and the feeling of stringing them together.

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
Rope climbs- Not only does this big baby not like heights, I am blown away that a guy as smart as me (and clearly modest) can’t figure out what to do with my feet!  It really shouldn’t be that hard.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
Anything involving cleans, but particularly squat cleans.  You can’t beat the feeling of catching a heavy weight down low, with your weight in your heels and elbows high.

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Snatch- Not only is it a complex move, but the third pull (getting under the bar) can be scary with heavier weights.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Box jumps- I like setting a nice rhythm with box jumps and zoning out.  I really like when we do the 30” boxes.  It challenges you both mentally and physically.  You better stay focused and give it your all, or you are losing some shin skin!

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Double-unders- I never jumped rope before coming to CrossFit, so just learning singles was an accomplishment.  DU’s can be so frustrating.  Sometimes I pull off 10 in a row and start to think that I’ve got it.  Two seconds later…I can’t get 2 in a row.

What is your favorite girl WOD?
Grace-  I love doing anything involving cleans.  Plus it is one of those crazy fast workouts that challenges you mentally to push past the desire to rest and just keep reaching for that bar.

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
Bradley- It was my first WOD after foundations.  What a rude awakening!  10 rounds of running, pull-ups, more running and burpees.  I exceeded the time cap after 9 rounds and quit.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to puke, pass-out or simply die.  Instead, I became addicted.  When this workout came back around a few months later, I finished all 10 rounds with plenty of time to spare.  It was a great feeling.

What is your least favorite girl WOD?
Angie- It was a bloody mess.

What is your least favorite Hero WOD?
McGhee- I remember when Erin yelled out that we were “half way”.  For a split second you got excited, until you realized that she meant you had 15 more minutes to go.  I’m definitely a sprinter, not a marathoner.

What type of WODs do you prefer?
I prefer WOD’s that are for time rather than AMRAP’s.  Particularly the ones that have the lifts based on your body weight.  It helps to put us little guys on a level playing field with the big boys.  If you haven’t noticed, I’m half the size of Ryan (“Kong”), even though we seem to wear the same size shirts.

How long have you been crossfitting?
Officially, March 2011. I had registered for my first mud run and though I was running a lot, I knew I needed something more to ensure I could complete the obstacles. A neighbor had told me about S3 so I came for the free intro class in late 2010 and loved it. I started taking Saturday classes prior to Foundations, and as soon as my schedule allowed, I completed Foundations and became a regular.

Why do you crossfit?
Many reasons! I love telling my kids about some of the workouts we do and watching their expressions! They think it’s pretty neat their mom can do this stuff and it encourages them to be athletes as well.  I also love hitting a PR, not allowing myself to become complacent, the challenging variety, and having one more place to wear my Lululemon. (Come on, you know that makes it more fun!)

What is the best part of S3?
Being with happy, hardworking, motivated(ing) people, the coaches who may have 37 times showed me the correct form on something, and still do it the 38th time with a smile on their face. And after the workout, when the nausea has subsided and your heart starts beating a little slower, being grateful that’s it’s over(!) and proud of the accomplishment.

What keeps you coming back?
Another chance to do it all again.

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
Handstand pushups.  I still have to use two mats under my head (someday it will be just one!). I love walking on my hands and being upside down….reminiscent of when I was in tumbling (gymnastics without the equipment).

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
Pullups! Pullups. Pullups. Pullups. Haaattteee. Looaatthhh. And knees to elbows. Pretty much anything on the bar, unless we were to hang upside down from it. That would rock.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
Back squat, deadlifts and now, thanks to Tayls, power cleans.

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Power snatch…requires too much coordination and concentration. I prefer to zone out during my workouts. It’s my coping method.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Running, ab mat sit-ups, box jumps and jumping rope. I can’t do double unders (see above) but I can go all day with the singles. So far, 500 without messing up is my record!

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Rowing, but my form is getting better (Thanks, Eric!!). What other movement is there that leaves you breathless, feeling like jello, and still only burns 3 calories??

What is your favorite girl WOD?
Diane

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
Griff. I’m not sure I have actually done this one yet (have done variations, but not sure I have done this as written, but would really like to….. hint hint ;))

What is your least favorite girl WOD?
Jackie

What is your least favorite Hero WOD?
Have you seen how many have pullups?!?!?!?

What type of WODs do you prefer?
It depends on the day. Monday’s are not my day, so a short strength day is a great start! By mid-week I start to get my groove back and like the longer “stamina” workouts.

How long have you been crossfitting?
August 1st, 2010, was the day my life changed forever!

Why do you crossfit?
I ask myself this same question every time there is “running” during a WOD….No good answer yet!

What is the best part of S3?
The people and making friends…Hands down.  Being around like minded people is great.  Bonus feature- I get to wear extra tight shirts and have built some pretty sweet calves!

What keeps you coming back?
Failing…Learning to do Muscle Up’s, or one day butter fly pull-ups….Plus an old Canadian… and everyone in the night (cool) class beats me every day.

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
Bar Muscle Up’s- Sorry Greg, we know it is a “touchy” subject.  Please be nice to me Gina ;)

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
Wall-Walks- They just wear me down.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
Arm Curls (Haha)….Ok, I would probably say Squat Snatches right now…but only if my knees are warmed up!

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Push Press- Having a tough time with it right now…. It likes to beat me up!

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Watching!…Yes it is new, and I have perfected it!

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Running- Some say I am praying when I do this…but I am actually asking God to make me a butterfly, so that I can fly far, far away!

What is your favorite girl WOD?
Linda- Anything that has a bench press in it…is cool to me…Plus my Mommy is named Linda

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
Nate- It has the best of everything…MU’s, HSPU, and heavy KB swings.

What is your least favorite girl WOD?
Fran- You know you have to do it, but it sucks!

What is your least favorite Hero WOD?
The Seven- It takes me to my knees… in round 2!

What type of WODs do you prefer?
I just “prefer” them to be over…but man, you feel great afterwards!  Thank you Coach Eric, Erin, Chris, and Sean…for giving me the greatest gift, that keeps on giving back!

How long have you been crossfitting?
I joined S3 in July 2012, so I’ve been crossfitting for about 8 months.

Why do you crossfit?
I played college softball.  This is the first thing since my eligibility ended that makes me feel like an athlete again and really keeps me motivated.

What is the best part of S3?
I absolutely love the workouts, but the people have become just as important to me.  Again, S3 gives me the “team” atmosphere that I have missed so much since college.

What keeps you coming back?
The constant challenges that crossfit provides!  I love learning a new lift or skill and finding ways to improve upon it or make it more efficient. I’m learning to have a strategy and re-learning how to push myself physically and mentally.

What is your favorite gymnastics move?
Kipping Pull-Ups-I love kipping pull-ups as this is a new skill for me and have seen good improvement and that is always exciting.

What is your least favorite gymnastic move?
Handstand Push-Ups-They are so hard.  I recently learned kipping handstand push-ups but haven’t mastered the coordination aspect of them and feel like I’m cheating when I do them.

What is your favorite weightlifting move?
Cleans (power or hang)-I like most of the weightlifting moves since I feel like I’m better at straight strength moves.

What is your least favorite weightlifting move?
Overhead Squat-probably my least favorite.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Rowing-This is a trick question as far as I’m concerned because I don’t like any of them!  Rowing is probably what I mind the least.

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Running-I really, really dislike any run over 200 meters.  “Only if I’m being chased” has been my approach to running since college.

What is your favorite girl WOD?
Angie-I shred my hands every time I do it (I can’t find a pair of gloves or grips that work for me) but again, the improvement I’ve seen on pull-ups keeps me coming back.

What is your favorite Hero WOD?
DT-I loved it!

What is your least favorite girl WOD?
Elizabeth-I don’t feel like I’ve done a lot of the named WODs but of those I’ve done, Elizabeth was tough because I have to modify the ring dips.

What is your least favorite Hero WOD?
McGhee-tough because of it’s length: 30 minute AMRAP.

What type of WODs do you prefer?
I like them short and sweet with emphasis on strength.

How long have you been crossfitting?
I have been a CROS3FIT member for almost 2 years.

Why do you crossfit?
I enjoy the mental and physical challenge.  The feeling after a tough WOD is exhilarating and an unbelievable sense of accomplishment.  I do it to keep me in shape and my mind strong.

What is the best part of Crossfit S3?
I enjoy the friendships that I have developed and the competitive environment.  Everyone has a common goal and encourages each other to push their limits.

What makes you keep coming back?
The friendships I have developed and the awesome WODs.  There is always a new challenge right around the corner.

What is your favorite gymnastics movement?
Squat thrusters!  I’m good at them.

What is your least favorite gymnastic movement?
Bear crawls.  I hate them!

What is your favorite weightlifting movement?
Overhead squats.  I like them because I feel like I get a complete body workout.

What is your least favorite weightlifting movement?
Oh that’s easy, front squats.

What is your favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Slamballs

What is your least favorite metabolic conditioning movement?
Rowing. I hate the rower!

Cindy. I like it and it’s simple.  Pull-ups, sit-ups, and squats.

What is your favorite HERO WOD?
Whittman – because of the challenge

What is your least favorite GIRL WOD?
Diane – too many dead lifts

What is your least favorite HERO WOD?

WEEKLY UPDATE: MARCH 4TH-MARCH 10TH

Strength Cycle:
For the next 6 weeks, the gym will focus on a 6 week strength cycle with two main lifts involved:  Push Press and Thrusters.  The push press is a great lift that requires speed, power, explosiveness, and strength.  The thruster is a functional, total body lift that requires not only great lower body strength, but the ability to drive weight from the bottom of a front squat to an overhead position.  Make sure to attend classes over the next 6 weeks when these lifts are provided as the strength element for class to see progress.

Article Of The Week:
Getting under the bar from shoulder to overhead can give people fits once the weight increases.  Here is a great article on the split jerk that has some insightful cues on how to use your entire body as leverage to gain maximal upward momentum of the bar and also just as important,  to get under the bar as fast as possible in the correct position.

http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/CFJ_Jerk_Vaughn_FINAL.pdf

Video Of The Week:
Very informative video on the kipping handstand push up.  Would still recommend gaining strength/confidence in strict handstand push ups before moving on to the kipping version.  Take a look!

How Long Have You Been Crossfitting:
As of this April it will be 2 years for me.  I only wish I would have been introduced to this when I was younger.

Why Do You Crossfit:
The variety of  movements within the structure of Crossfit is phenomenal.  I’ve done the home dvd workouts of P90X and Insanity 3 times each, but got bored very quickly and with boredom came plateaus.  I have not been bored with any of the Crossfit workouts and continue to be challenged, even if I have done the WOD before.  I feel I am in the best shape of my life, but also believe there is always room for improvement.

What Is The Best Part Of CrossfitS3:
I think the best part of CrossfitS3 is the community.  It is nice to “get your ass kicked” and enjoy it with similar minded people.

What Makes You Keep Coming Back:
I continue to come back because it’s the best workout regimen I’ve ever been involved with and have results that I want to continue to build on. Furthermore, it’s easier coming here and having the workout already planned for me.  I think the programming is top notch.  Additionally, I wouldn’t want to give up the relationships that have been developed.

Favorite Gymnastic Movement:
I like dead hang pull/chin ups and push ups but getting the kipping pull ups has been a trying episode for many months.  I’ve only recently been able to see improvements in that skill.

Least Favorite Gymnastic Movement:
Kipping Hand Stand Push Ups.  Handstand pushups are not my least favorite movement, but the kipping part is what I need the most work on.  I continue to have balance issues trying to string kipping HSPU together.  Gymnastic movements are especially challenging for me as I had never heard of movements such as toes 2 bar and knees to elbows before Crossfit.

Favorite Weightlifting Movement:
Strict Press.  This is a hard choice as I like most weight movements.

Least Favorite Weightlifting Movement:
Squat Snatch.  While I like most weightlifting movements, the technique involved with the squat snatch is so complex that I need a lot work on that lift.  Many of the Olympic lifts that have been introduced require a technique that was foreign prior to Crossfit.  Like many (before Crossfit), I would go to the weight room to bench and do other static movements.

Favorite Metabolic Conditioning Movement:
Running

Least Favorite Metabolic Conditioning Movement:
This is a tough choice between burpees and double unders.  Burpees because they SUCK and double unders because I SUCK at them.

Favorite Girl WOD:
“Helen” (3 rounds of 400M run, 21 1.5 pood KBS, and 12 pull ups) as I like all three movements in that WOD, but I also like Kelly and Barbara.

Favorite Hero WOD:
“The Seven”.  I did this one recently and it was awesome and one of the harder hero WOD’s.

Least Favorite Girl WOD:
Don’t really have one. I think they are all good and challenging.

Least Favorite Hero WOD:
“DT” (5 Rounds: 12 Deadlifts, 9 Hang Power Clean, 6 Push Jerk all at 155 lbs).  I can’t RX this one because of the hang power clean weight. This causes the weight of the other 2 movements that I can RX to be scaled down disproportionately to allow me to complete the hang power cleans.

What Type Of WOD’s Do You Prefer:
Anything for time

What WOD’s Do You Not Prefer:
AMRAPs. They feel as though they will never end

If You Could See 1 Movement In A WOD, What Would It Be:
WODs that involve the 2 pood KB.  They are especially challenging, but don’t require precise technique.
