"I welcome you to the community of people who have decided that easy will no longer suffice."

The CrossFit Open is here!!!! 16.1 will be released this week and DRS will be doing the open workouts on fridays in every class. The Chad Attack 8 week cycle ends as of this week, we will be maxing out starting next week only in one day, the rest of the week our focus will be to continue what we have built and do the Open workouts at the end of the week! THE FOCUS OF THE WEEK IS: Give 100% of what you have today!

Here is FITNESS IN 100 WORDS by Greg Glassman!

"Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean and jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climbs, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports."

I think we have done pretty good haha! I truly believe in variety but it has to be with a purpose! I also truly believe in programming according to physiology, energy systems, goals, phases and with a kick of strength and conditioning. I want to develop ATHLETES in FITNESS not just good workouters haha! Let's continue this momentum and have some fun this next 5 weeks with the CrossFit Open!

Here is a cool video about the CrossFit Open:

Here are last week's top scores! At any given day or any given time it can be you! Keep working hard DRS!


Stay Strong,
