Pon does not disappoint when it comes to intensity and effort.
Workout of the Day
Six rounds for time of:
Doesn’t get much more simple, or neurologically stupid than burpees and running but damn it works well. If the goal is to ramp up the heart and respiratory rate and keep it there for a sustained effort I think there is few things greater than some monostructural work (run, row, swim) in combination with a weightlifting or bodyweight movement. Just pick your time domain, mix up the movements and 3, 2, 1… Go!
About the CrossFit Games Open
As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, the 2011 CrossFit Games are right around the corner. The format for the Sectionals this year is a bit different than it was in the past; we’ll be competing in a gym and registering scores online. People from around the world will be competing at CrossFit facilities and in their garages to make their way through this first round of qualifying. Every week for six weeks CrossFit HQ will release one workout that everyone will have to complete, athletes will register their times on the online database and a pool of the top times will advance on to the Regional competition level. So, we’re going to add these workouts in to our programming schedule in an effort to give our clientele a taste of the games. If you’re interested in trying to qualify for the Games, you’ll need a trainer at our gym to verify your performance, so you’ll have to let us know when you’ll be in on that particular day. How to do so in an upcoming e-mail blast to everyone.
For now, if you’re interested in competing, you need to go to the Games website and register as an athlete.
Workouts will take place every Thursday and there will be a make-up option on Saturday if you can’t make it in.
