The Week of the GHD

CrossFit doesn’t use machines so what the hell are those funny looking contraptions in the red room?  Some of you have dabbled with them, some of you know what to do but neglect it after workouts, and others are scared they might fall over the front!  If you fall into any of those categories, next week is your week.  Come learn how to take advantage of these amazing pieces of equipment to supplement and enhance your training and life in general.  Wow, that machine has a lot to offer!

Next week we will spend a considerable amount of time in each class working on the following:

Monday – hip extension
Tuesday – back extension
Wednesday – hip and back extension
Thursday – the GHD sit-up
Friday – glute ham raises and GHD test out

What is the GHD test out?  It determines what you can do on the GHD given your current ability level and gives you a simple layout for how to proceed (aka GET STRONGER).

    And one for me!

    Have a great rest of the week Roots Crew! I’m off to North Carolina for the CF staff training.

    Make sure those calves are ready to go for tomorrow!

    Well, the erg clinics are full, and you have to take a clinic to do the Holiday Erg Challenge 100K, so I guess that means that only a few folks can do the challenge? (Yes, that really was a question.) I’d love to do it.

    Maybe Nicole will let me start a secondary market here. Bones & Olivia, I’ll teach you whatever I learn at the clinic for $5.50 each. And a stick of pepperoni.
