Class Level Distinctions


get inventive with your workout

As you may have noticed on the schedule going forward we have added an RX level amongst our L1/L2, All Levels and Competitor class distinctions.  In order to take an Rx class you do not have to complete the prescribed weights or unassisted body weight movements, we just ask that you have previously done the movements before in a class or are comfortable with some sort of modification.  There will not be as much coddling during the Rx classes and time will be spent on furthering skills.  For example, on muscle up day we will not review pull ups and dips during Rx classes.  Instead, we will spend most of our time working muscle up technique and transitions.  If you are a newbie (don’t have the kip quite down yet, have never set up a ring dip with the bands), we suggest you show up to the L1/L2 classes or the All Levels classes as time will be spent going into detail on technique, how to setup, how to scale appropriately, etc.. Lastly, if you have been a member for 2+ months and have seen all the movements a few times don’t be fearful of jumping into the Rx classes.  These classes are going to help further your skills, push you a little harder and free up some room in the L1/L2 classes for more newbies to learn.  Lastly, all are welcome for All Levels classes.  These classes are at non high traffic times and we will have multiple coaches on when necessary to help with all ability levels often breaking up by skill set.  Thank you for abiding to these class distinctions as we are able to teach more effectively and efficiently in doing so.

    Got to partner up with one of my fave dudes JOE LASK tonight. Took it to those Rx front squats.

    WOD: 21:48

    Tonight was the first time in a while that my hands weren’t a mess for a pullup WOD, what a freakin’ difference that made. I was seriously beginning to wonder if I lost the ability to do kipping pullups. Was able to push off the bar and take advantage of pushing my head through my arms, I was having trouble doing that with jacked up hands.

    Change the blades in your callus shavers! I didn’t realize how dull the blade was in mine until I changed it out today. I was probably just making my hands worse for the past month, making big divots from shaving away with that dull edge.

    Good WOD! How come more people don’t post results?

    Kara is a beast on front squats and rowing. And let’s get some more ladies at the 6:30am!!

    I’m going to assume the buddy squat was Jason’s idea.

    Woah…that was a whopper of a chipper! Love partner WODs!
    Team Anesthesia- WOD: 28:32 (95 for the front squats, blue and green bands for me, DUs and singles between us, 14 for the wallballs)

    15:48 with me playing the role of the gimp substituting burpees for DUs as I nurse my bum wheel back into shape. Patrick’s a horse. Love the partner wods…definite added motivation to keep hammering away. Kudos to the animal who did the entire workout solo…God help me.
