You knew it was coming....

The winter workout!

Beth - let me run wild outside - Curry gave it a go today on the snowshoes.

She did AMRAP in 20 MIN of 5 Front Squats/10 knee to elbows/200m snowshoe sprint

Sandra did the same workout sans snowshoes.

For Dec 24 at the 9am workout please be prepared to go outside. We have tons of fresh snow and it is supposed to be mild weather. Come prepared!

Bison Dog Food

Let me know if you are interested in some bison meat for dogs.

Reminder - Stretching class Thursday at 7pm

Come out to stretch on Thursday night. Without flexibility, your squat and deadlift and kips and handstands and presses are all COMPROMISED.

You get the idea.

And take the stretching seriously.

Stretching requires concentration - Just as much as handstands or overhead squats.

Thinking about the press with Coach Starrett

Check out this great explanation of the involvement of the abdominal muscles in pressing movements. How many of you have experienced back pain after heavy presses? Coach Starrett explains that midline stabilization breaks down when the athlete fails to drive the ribcage down, resulting in an over-extension of the spine. Do not let your ribcage fly away during the press. You are not a bird in flight!

You must anchor the ribcage by driving it down towards the floor.

Cindy attacked the workout today.

Caitie pushed through today's workout with serious speed.


























The clean comes very naturally to Neil. He does a great job of maintaining a vertical relationship to the bar.

flux CrossFit Gift Certificates

Here's a swell idea! Flux CrossFit Gift Certificates for Christmas!

You all have friends and family that are curious about flux but too scared or intimidated to give flux a try. A gift certificate would be great encouragement.
