WOD Brief:

Today is the day! Our second relay for Rwanda! We kick off this afternoon at 3pm, thus meaning both the 4:30pm and 5:30pm classes are cancelled. All are welcome to jump in on the relay at any point, BUT for those of you unable to join us this evening for the event, we are giving you a little taste of the goodness in this workout today. Prepare to sweat, prepare to get tired, and prepare to power through the desire to quit. This is a true test of aerobic capacity, breathing, and mental fortitude. 100 calories on the rower, the skier, the assault bike, followed by a 1000m run…we cannot think of a better way to earn your Friday night carbs! Let’s get after it, NBK!

4 Deadlift (245/165)

WOD Brief:

Yesterday we pushed some heavy weights on those back squats, and today we have ALL THE DEADLIFTS! Our strength work today is three sets of 10 deadlifts…an ideal weight range here would be 65-70% of your one rep max. Ten reps at a moderate weight requires a bit of grit and intense focus, we want to make sure our backs stay flat, our cores stay engaged and we remember to breathe throughout all sets.

After we get stronger in the first part of class, we are going to tax multiple energy systems and get even stronger with three short, highly intense amraps. Pairing highly aerobic, oxygen-sucking movements with heavy strength work is a way to increase lung capacity and muscular endurance. Let’s get after it today, team!

WOD Brief:

Classic crossfit here, some heavy back squats to kick us off on this hump day, followed by a simple, intense emom. Today we are going to cover all the basis, by training our core, our lung capacity and muscular endurance. How fast can we push to get the rest? How efficient can we move under fatigue? Well a 21 minute EMOM will certainly push our strengths and poke our weaknesses and reveal all of those answers. Let’s work hard, let’s push and let’s get better one short minute at a time. Today we are training strength, power, speed, stamina, coordination, balance, agility, and flexibility…go get it!

WOD Brief:

Today we are raising awareness for Matt Cooper, a fellow crossfit athlete and friend from Crossfit Higher Ground who was shot protecting and defending our fellow citizens.

“While on duty, Matt was responding to a shoplifting call at the local Covington Walmart. Pursing one of the perpetrators on foot Matt took a shot to his head. He was taken by life flight to Atlanta Medical Center where the doctors found a bullet fragment that was lodged on his carotid artery. This caused him to have multiple strokes which caused swelling in his brain. A few days later he received a craniotomy to reduce the swelling in his brain and has since been transferred to the Shepherd Center Brain Rehabilitation Program in Atlanta where he will begin therapy under the guidance of a full team of medical and rehabilitation specialist. Matt still has a very long recovery ahead and we would like to help ease his family of any financial burden they may incur while he recovers.”

Please join us in participating in this doozy of a wod and by donating to his recovery. Here is the direct link for donations: Matt Cooper Recovery

WOD Brief

Happy Monday family! Today we have a spicy, spicy partner chipper in honor of our long time athlete, Gloria Mahoney…as she is moving away to tackle a new career. Split the reps up however need be, but each effort should be a sprint…when you begin to slow down switch partners and keep pushing. We start off with a 100 calorie bike erg to get those legs pumping, straight into 80 clean n’ jerks, 40 tall box jumps then repeat…rest 2 minutes and we will finish climbing that rope! Have fun with this, scale weights and reps accordingly and let’s start this week off right! Today we are training strength, stamina, endurance and pure grit.
