*Program Notes: This is a transition week.  We will back off some of the heavy stuff and work in some sessions that are less typical for our program. Stick with the program, understand that transition weeks are designed to give you the the recovery to excel in the next cycle, and resist the urge to add in extra work. I shouldn't have to impress upon you the importance of an occasional deload week. Google It. The next cycle begins on Monday, June 9. Then we will get back to building up your foundational strength and aerobic base, and be ready to set some new PRs in the next 9 week block. We program with goals in mind for the athlete that is following out program 3-5 times a week. If you are doing your own thing half of the time or cherry picking workouts then when it comes time to test, do not expect the results that come with following a program regularly. A. Every 30 Seconds for 15 minutes 1 Deadlift @ 65-75% of Deadlift 5rm *Focus here is speed, if you are moving the bar slow, take weight off B. 8 Rounds (24 total minutes) Minute 1: 8-10 Russian KB Swings 55/35 Minute 2: 5 Burpees, each burpee is concluded with a vertical jump as high as possible Minute 3: 6-8 Hang Cleans @ Barbell

Pinterest Party

By: 0

Date: Saturday, June 7
Time: 6pm-??
What: CFSB Ladies-only Pinterest Party
Where: CFSB
Bring: a craft of choice (and the supplies) or if you don't have a craft, bring a blank canvas. I'll be doing a herringbone craft if you want to join me (click here to check it out). I will have plenty of paint so you'll just need a canvas (your choice of size) and a large paint brush. If you aren't a crafty person, you certainly don't have to bring anything but you should still come and hang out with all of the lovely CFSB ladies!
Also, bring whatever drinks/food you want. This may turn into a "let's drink and eat" party instead of a Pinterest party but hey, we'll all be together and that's what is most important! :)
Any questions? Feel free to contact me. Phone number is 574-538-8774 or email is emily@crossfitsouthbend.com
Hope to see everyone there!
