I may not agree completely with everything coach Glassman is saying here but I do completely agree with the point he is making. I seriously doubt that any box has coaches and trainers that just absolutely do not care about his/her clients well being.  Some people want to workout at our box to get a “good workout”, nothing more, and I see nothing wrong with that. Those people are probably not, no matter how hard we preach it, going to understand our methodology – the importance of our programming and why we list the order of importance as mechanics, consistent mechanics and then intensity. They are here for the intensity and truth be known if we placed them in a foundations class they may not have liked CrossFit very much. Those people may get hurt because they don’t know what they are doing. Some people completely understand what we do and why we do it and they are going to push themselves to a point where they may get hurt as well. This is a sport and injuries can certainly occur in sports. This is why I have said before it is very important to understand for yourself what your goals are and that those goals are clear to all the coaches and trainers. So, just a little plug, we have some great tools on their way to the box to do just that. The most “easy peasy” understanding CrossFit and your goals tool you can have. Everybody will love it!

Warm Up: We will shift the warm up drills just a little. Many of us have specific mobility needs and some of us have specific warm up moves we feel like we have just got to do. The one thing that all of the best coaches in the business are saying over and over unanimously is that whatever moves you are about to do in your workout should be done for warm up and (yes you are about to hear this right!) your heart rate should get up to that of which you expect it to get to during your workout. I am going to time the warm up to give the “vets” their opportunity to do their thing and the “newbies” a chance to learn their thing. When time expires it’s 3-2-1 Go!

For Time:

30 Wall Balls, 20/14

20 Wall Balls, 20/14

20 Toes to Bar

10 Wall Balls, 20/14

10 Toes to Bar

You will be allowed to drop from the bar one time each round on the t2b, beyond that, each time you drop from the bar that round it’s 3 on the spot burpees
