Wednesday:

CrossFit Benchmark Day – Fran Retest!

Two weeks too early…. BUT due to Lockdown and to end our fitness freedom in style we will be re-testing our Fran Benchmark today.

TOP TIPS:

Breathing – Focus on pacing your Thrusters and maintaining a consistent rhythm with your breathing. Breath at the top of the rep and exhale on the way up (the thrust).

Pacing – Make a plan. If you did the first test 3 weeks ago then make a positive tactical plan to improve it by sticking to a set rep scheme, not allowing yourself to get to failure, and taking much less time in transitions and breaks.

Pull-Ups – Don’t allow your grip to be the defining factor and reason for failing. Be relentless by not taking ages to get back onto the Rig each time, and if Kipping ensure you exaggerate the beat of the swing as this will help to save your arms and shoulders.

Mindset – You hopefully already know what this workout feels like, so use that to your advantage. Accept it, embrace it and gun it.

See you in the Pain Cave and GOOD LUCK!

Hero Workout ‘Monsoor’

This workout is dedicated to Michael Anthony Monsoor who was a U.S. Navy SEAL killed during the Iraq War and posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.

On September 29, 2006, an insurgent threw a grenade onto a rooftop where Monsoor and several other SEAL and Iraqi soldiers were positioned. Monsoor quickly smothered the grenade with his body, absorbing the resulting explosion and most likely saving his comrades from serious injury or death. Monsoor died 30 minutes later from serious wounds caused by the grenade explosion.

The workout was designed by CrossFit Pride @crossfitpride (Santee, CA, USA) and first posted as their workout of the day for January 27, 2019.
