Welcome to Pilchuck CrossFit

Welcome to Pilchuck CrossFit! CrossFit is a core strength & conditioning program that delivers a fitness that is by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Elements of track & field, gymnastics, weightlifting, and strongman are combined in short intense daily workouts to maximize results for any individual. CrossFit teaches functional movement patterns, or, movements that you find in real life -pushing, pulling, squatting, jumping, throwing, carrying, and sprinting.

Happy Friday everybody--for those of you who have already started your weekend have a safe long weekend, and remember the real meaning of Memorial Day. Tomorrow remember we have 1 CrossFit class at 9AM where we will be participating in 'Murph'. We hope you all can make it, the workout is a ton of fun, but more important than that there is a real purpose behind it. See you all this evening for some important benchmarks, and hopefully tomorrow!

Before we get to this weekend, our very own Matt and Kim had their CrossFit Level 1 Course over this past weekend. If you see them take a second to congratulate them in their first step to becoming a coach!

As most of you know, this weekend is Memorial Day, so we have some schedule changes and a Hero workout to do. All of the schedule changes can be found on MindBody (There is a link on the right of your screen). But this Saturday we are going to be doing "Murph". Some of you already know the history of Murph, some of you may not in which I encourage you type in Murph into Google and see what you find. 

We will be doing Murph this Saturday at 9AM ONLY. We want ALL of you to come and give it a shot, this will be your only chance to do it! Sunday and Monday the gym is closed, and there will be no CrossFit classes, or Barbell Club meeting over the weekend.

"There are three sides to the strength pyramid: training, nutrition and rest. It takes time to learn how to do various exercises using proper technique, what exercises to do on which training days, what sets and reps to use, etc. Sometimes it can take two or three years to do so unless you happen to be lucky enough to have a mentor." 

Make sure you read 'No Rest for the Foolish' from the CrossFit Journal. 

Also make sure you check out this extremely helpful video analysis from Spencer Arnold at USAW Regional Championships. It's free coaching, so check it out! Here is the link. 

 

A. Every 2 minutes for 14 minutes:

Clean 1.1

**Start at 60% and build to a max.**

B. 3 working sets of:

Front Squat x 3 Reps

Rest as needed between sets.
