|We all have goals that we’re working towards. Whether those goals have anything to do with an upcoming hero workout or not, it can be hard to find consistency when life throws you a curveball.|
So what’s the best thing you can do if you realize that you’ve been falling short on how you approach your health and fitness goals?
Start by doing a little bit more today because it’s never too late to get started. So, if you’re using Murph as an extra bit of motivation to get you going — and even if you’re not — aim for consistency and a little improvement this week because the best time to start was yesterday, and the next best time to start is today.

#FearlessFriday; CFML’s calorie torching, muscle building workout of the week:
Deadlift (1×3 (70%) / 1×3 (80%) / 1×3(90%)
35/28 Cal Bike
30 Box Jump Overs (24/20)
10 Deadlifts (255/175)|(175/115)
35/28 Cal Bike
This workout will be a leg burner and a challenge to the core. The Cal Bike should be a sprint at 80-85% effort. Moving into the Box Jump Overs the legs will already be pumped up so jumping will be a challenge. The Deadlifts will further tax the legs and the heavy breathing from the Box Jump Overs will make it harder to keep the core braced. Moving back onto the Cal Bike the legs will feel heavy and it will be a fight to the finish.
Memorial Day Schedule:
No Classes Friday, May 27th (only early AM classes, no 9:30)
No Classes Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (28th, 29th, 30th)
Regular Schedule Resumes Tuesday, May 31st.

When You Should Breathe In Your Squat
Too many think breathing “into your stomach” means to push your belly forward. This is incorrect. You want to “fill the tank” not just make it bigger. Check out this example of proper breathing mechanics from Olympian, World Champion, Asian Champion, and Asian Games Champion weightlifter Tian Tao.
