Nobody told me there’d be days like these.  Strange days indeed.

 

If you told me when I woke up this morning I’d be in the back of an ambulance and get a flat tire.  I wouldn’t have believed you.  If you told me that I would be in the back of a police car, getting a ride.  I wouldn’t have believed you.

Many things we have to experience on our own to believe.  Much of your fitness journey we, coaches, can say things till we are blue in the face but until you do it for yourself/experience it yourself, its hard to believe. We strongly encourage you to keep reaching out and trying new things.  Then please tell us about it!

Don’t Drive Distracted

Over the past few days there have been two horrific collisions ending with fatalities on the beltway stemming from distracted driving.  Full details still unfolding.  What is know, in both circumstances, the victims stopped out of the way of flowing traffic, got out of their car and then were stuck by an on coming vehicle.

Please, it matters to us that you are safe.  If able don’t stop on any kind of busy road, and don’t drive distracted.

You wouldn’t even think about performing a box jump distracted.  Embrace the same mentality when driving.  Focus on the task at hand.  Your safety is our concern both inside and outside the gym.

Now, get you some box jumps!

CrossFit Deadlift

NOVA Strength & Conditioning, NOVA CrossFit, 06.22.2017

NOVA Strength & Conditioning, Home of NOVA CrossFit

 

Thursday is a heavy single deadlift.  What a wonderful lift!!!  Epitome of pick things up and put things down plus move heavy weight well.  Both can cause a rush.  However, preservation of the back is of utmost importance when performing this lift.  Maintain midline stability and a neutral spine.  If unsure what that means ask your coach.  In addition to the deadlift being an awesome lift, it is a practical lift.  We go through the motions of a deadlift more than we can ever imagine.  Picking up anything of the ground, grocery bags, a bucket etc.  At any and all points in time, tighten that belly and set the back.  Those two things will keep your back healthy and happy for a long time and for many more deadlifts to come.

Why we deadlift for additional ready pleasure.

Happy Deadlifting!  And here’s to many PRs!!
