Happy Memorial Day!! Today is one of those days that I believe is important to celebrate because of how significant the sacrifice is for our service people. Even though there are those that do not want to acknowledge what our country was founded on or what we stand for now, we have to honor those that have lost their lives defending our country. Some died defending other defenseless people and that is honorable as well. Soldiers sacrifice and the families that stay home sacrifice. Thanks you so very much to all of our people that serve in our military and the families that support them. To the rest of you, never forget why this country was founded and what it took to have your freedoms.CLASSES ARE 8:00 and 9:00 AM and then 4:30 and 5:30 PM. Memorial Day Workout: Pick your HERO-- I will have several HERO workouts to pick from and of course you can do "Murph" if you want to.
AMRAP in 18 min. of:
10 Dumbbell Clean and Jerks 50/35
15 Air Squats
Okay guys, here is the plan for Saturday! We are going to have a HERO partner workout at 9:30 am but instead of trying to do a picnic right after we are going to do an evening hang out at 6:00 pm. It will be open door so you can just pop by for a few minutes or hangout and eat and play "safe" games. If you want to come over then bring a side or appetizer. Looking forward to something "normal".
Another reminder that we are going to have a "social" on Saturday. I will give the final plan on Friday's post but there will be food! Also, we will be doing a HERO partner workout at 9:30 that morning. However, today we have some timeless work to do. Thursday's Work: Run/Row 1 mile (1600m), 50 Pushups, 100 Knee to Elbow Mountain Climbers, 50 Alternating Dumbbell Snatches, 100 Lunges
15 Squat Snatch 135/95
20 Squat Cleans 155/115
25 Deadlifts 225/155
Okay, here is what we are going to do. This weekend we are going to have our Saturday morning workout which will be a partner HERO workout and then we are going to have a cookout / picnic after. After we get some food in our bodies we might go find some water to play in on a hike. We can totally have some quality time together as a community and still handle it in a way to give people space. We miss everyone and hope that this will be a good opportunity to catch up. The best way to fight sickness is to live healthy and part of that is working out, part is eating well, and another part is having support. Love you guys.
A) Strict Press:
EMOM for 8 min. of: 3 x 65% of 1RM (if you know it)
B) AMRAP in 15 min. of:
