Getting in shape surely takes effort, commitment and a bit of your time but if you have a good program and understand that your diet will control your results more than any other factor, you really can see fantastic results fairly quickly. Please take a few minutes to read this article (ht – Dan John) and see which of the 10 points make you squirm a little. Some of them are not very CrossFitty (?!?) but are still good suggestions.
Here is one I liked…
Focus on what you need most. Are you in bad shape? Overweight? Concentrate on DIET, basic strength and endurance before you worry about developing the flactiod, its role in power production and the hundred other things in the muscle magazine you bought. Need to run faster? Find a running program. Need to be stronger? Use a strength program. Need both? Find something that balances them. Need to be a ninja, wrapped in a navy seal, combined with a marathoner, crossed with a powerlifter and topped off with a 45 inch vertical leap?
Took this picture a little while back during the 5:30pm group.
Double under aren’t going away so you may as well get a rope and master them. Having your own jump rope is nice because you can cut it to a length that’s best for you. The gym ropes are what they are and may not be sized best for you.
Clarke brought in his new rope and it was roundly approved by our best rope skippers and a bunch of us who are mere wannabes. If you want to pick one up for yourself you can find it at buyjumpropes.net. They provide a number of different ropes and they are very affordable.
They said this was supposed to turn to rain. Grrr!
In light of the continuing snow there will be NO 7:30pm Class Thursday.
4:30/5:30 times are open as usual, drive safely.
