At least in the world of Crossfit. The Crossfit Open welcomed RX/Scaled athletes to the first two workouts with lunges, chest to bar/jumping pull-ups, squat cleans, double-unders/singles and toes-to-bar/knee-raises. Oh, and of course, burpees. Sure, why not?
Whether it's the luck of the Irish, hustle or hard work, all of our 510 athletes participating in the Crossfit Open are doing an incredible job. Keep pushing... we are proud of each and every one of you!
As a reminder, for those signed up for the Open, scores must be submitted by 5pm on Monday after each workout is released. Athletes are required to input scores themselves with the account created during your registration.
For those not signed up for the Open, we welcome you to try the Open workouts. They are programmed every Friday during Open season.

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs, the burning in your legs and the voice inside you that yells 'I can't.' But you do not listen. You push harder. Then you can hear that voice fade away and start to whisper,'I can.' That's the moment you discover that the person you thought you were is not a match for the person you really are." -Unknown Author

Coach's Corner: The Hollow Body Hold
This month, Coach Rob and Coach Jerome share how to perform a proper Hollow Body Hold and some modifications to help you along the way. This is a great exercise that you can do at the gym or in the comfort of your home.
For best results, hold the Hollow Body position for 30 to 60 sec, for 8 to 12 rounds, while taking 15 to 30 seconds of break in between. The length of the hold depends on the quality of your Hollow Body. Practice good mechanics and use the modifications shown above if needed.
