Whats your excuse?
Thursdays will no longer be a skills and catch up day.
We will post a skills review of what has come over over the past week however we want members to use today as a mobility and injury prevention/rehabilitation day. It has become clear that many member are battling some niggling injuries and its up to you to get on top of them. We can help but its you that must do the work.
Members will stil able to catch up on workouts but the class will not have any set schedule. The class will now be classified as Open Gym.
Check out the mobilitywod for some motivation and ideas to help this area that is so often overlooked.

Thursday is no longer a rest day. Its time to come in and roll out your sore spots, stretch your tight spots and get some blood flowing. Maybe an active recovery on the rower. Practice some double under’s and get your body moving.
This is still very much an overlooked area of fitness and many of you following this site have been talking of little aches and pains recently. No shit, your lifting much heavier than ever and more regularly than ever. The metabolic conditioning volume has increased, the demands of the movements has increased. Your setting new PR’s regularly and doing things never once before attempted.
Now stop winging, get on an action plan to avoid injuring yourself, this will also serve as tool to improve your performance, hey, killing two birds with one stone, who would have thought life could be so grand.
Your’e a CrossFitter, your meant to hurt. Your meant to train through small aches and pains. Nothing worth dying for comes easy and I’m willing to kill myself every time I here 3,2,1 go. For a second, for a rep, for a fucking inch I’m willing to die. Thats where success is born. Its not delivered from your mouth its governed by your actions. So when that little voice in the back of your mind speaking of weakness shut that shit down by crushing a workout, lifting some heavy or working till you puke. I will not stand for weakness. So don’t you fucking dare!
Lets get after it Rebels!
