Team ACF’s first ‘benchmark’ WOD!

Kids should not be playing with those big ol' tires. Oh wait! Thats Molly!

 

Why have benchmark WODs? A Benchmark WOD will show you a lot. First, it will show you what is possible. Then it will show you where you’re weak, where you’re strong, and most importantly improvement! This is the first benchmark WOD I did when I started CrossFit and I couldn’t get enough of it. Don’t worry, I won’t have you do every week like I did. It’ll probably be a few months before we see it again, but we will see it again and we will see different benchmark WODs regularly. This is performance based fitness, right? The important thing here is improvement, so how you finish today, is how you finish today. Just try to get through this WOD with good form and still breathing!

We’ve got mats, and the 430 class went to town breaking them in! Great work with the front squats everyone. Way to stay focused on the task at hand. I think you all will be ready to load those bars up with weight sooner than later!

First day of the full schedule

Amazing job learning the dead lift yesterday! And I love the questions, keep the questions coming people! If we don’t figure it out today, I know we’ll get it soon enough. The answer most of the time, will be roll and stretch! But what to roll is what we need to figure out.

 

Ok, full schedule is in effect! No more excuses for you morning or midday peeps!

Lemons

Our crazy lemon tree

 

We have this lemon tree that just produces tons of lemons all year long. I’m bringing in a few bags of lemons, don’t be shy and grab what you think you’ll use and then some. I’m not a huge fan of lemons, bummer I have more than enough. If you have a good recipe that puts the lemon to good use, please share it because we all have some lemons to use!

Like I said, I’m not a huge fan of the lemon but here is the best use of the lemon I have found. This may not be the best recipe to use on a Monday night, but it is a good “paleo” recipe.

3-4 cubes of ice in a glass

a twist of fresh ground sea salt

1/2 of a lemon squeezed in to the glass

1-2 shots of Taquila (silver is my favorite)

shake or stir and a good time awaits!

I use lemons but lime works too!

Abbie showing off for Dan

I want to say thanks to all of you for bearing with Abbie and her learning experience. Hanging out at the gym while I coach is a new thing for her. She seems to be coming along just fine. I noticed the other day she was showing off a little for Dan “the man”.

 

Enjoy the beautiful weather and have a little fun!

 

 

 

The pull up

Luz getting after some pull ups

 

The pull up can take a little time. Don’t expect to get pull ups on day one, wait till tomorrow! Haha! Just kidding. Just like anything else in life, it takes a little bit of work. Once you get your first pull up, you’ll be looking forward to some kipping pull ups, then, the butterfly pull up! Check out this video of Chris Spealler a CrossFit OG hitting 106 pull ups in a row. Yes, they are not strict pull ups but none the less, they are pull ups.

Another local Paleo blogger

Job well done last night! I threw a serious WOD your way, and you all handled it with ease.

I’m so excited to have another local “Paleo” blogger join our little but growing Auburn CrossFit community. And she’s got the hook up on some local grass-fed beef. In my opinion, if you want to beat those horrible factory farms, buy local! Thanks for the shout out on your blog, Molly! Check it out and try some of the recipes and let us know how you like them. Anyway, here is the link.  a foothill home companion

 

We’re going to start tomorrows WOD with some solid mobility work. If you have a foam roller, lacrosse or tennis balls, bring them in! Any sort of resistance band would be good to bring in as well.

WOD

3 rounds for time

bear crawl forward/backward (door-Rig)

21 jumping lunges 35/20

15 sit ups 35/20

9 burpees
