We are always honored to have guests from out of town. Alfia is in from San Diego for a month and will be joining us for the next few weeks. Please introduce yourself if you have the chance.
Workout of the Day
Work up to a 1RM Push Press
Then, after 5 minutes rest…
20-10 Reps for time:
Push Press (75/55lb)
* Ideally the bar is 6-12 inches beyond your reach, chest-to-bar is RX’d for the day.
Today’s workout is one of those classic “looks easy on paper” workouts. Because it’s so short, light and relatively simple this is one to test your redline, so to speak. Every now and then it’s good to see what you’ve got in the tank, even for just a short amount of time.
This should cause you some reflection, too. Workouts that take 20-45 minutes have obvious holes in work, you’re guaranteed to rest. But something like this short little couplet can give you a great taste of what high intensity looks like, even for a brief amount of time. So ask yourself this question, “in those short 4 minutes I was working, did I give it everything I had?”
Remember, our conditioning workouts are short(er) because we work hard when the clock starts. If you’re not giving it a good effort, you’re not going to get the kind of results you may have promised yourself that CrossFit is supposed to provide.
