|What’s Done Is Done|
Don’t be upset with the results you didn’t get from the work you didn’t do. It’s that simple.
As we enter the fourth and final week of our Murph Prep series, it’s important for you to look back at the past few weeks and ask yourself “Did I put in the work?”.
Now, you might not be doing the Murph hero workout this year, and that’s OK — you can still apply the same lesson to the pursuit of any other meaningful goal.
If you want results, you have to put in the work. If you set some ambitious goals for yourself at the beginning of this year and you end up falling short, you can’t be disappointed if you didn’t do the grind.
Whether it’s a short-term goal like preparing for Murph or a long-term goal like losing excess body fat, it really is that simple.
You either put in the EFFORT or you don’t — and the results will inevitably show.

#MAINLINEMONDAY; CFML’S HIGH POWERED OPEN GYM WORKOUT OF THE WEEK:
Five Rounds For Time:
20 Kettlebell Deadlifts (2x 53/35 LB)
60 Double unders
30m Farmers Carry (2x 53/35 LB)
Time Cap: 20 Minutes
- Reduce weight as needed
- Scale double unders to 100 single unders per round
- Try doing 60 seconds of double under attempts
Some advice from the coaches: “Do not strategize, go out hard and hang on. Push yourself to do one more rep when you think you are done and take one more step when you want to rest. Your mantra for today is ‘go before you want to,’ repeat that to yourself and remind yourself that you have to push to get better. The grip endurance will force you to break up the work at some point, keep an eye on the clock and do not walk away from your KB’s while you rest. Using grips will help you avoid the need to chalk up excessively.”

#FEARLESSFRIDAY; CFML’S CALORIE TORCHING, MUSCLE BUILDING WORKOUT OF THE WEEK:
Overhead Squat (5-5-5*)
Tempo Overhead Squats (22X1)

“COOL HAND LUKE”
7 ROUNDS FOR TIME
7 Overhead Squats (115/75)|(75/55)
7 Bar Facing Burpees
7 Toes to Bar
This workout will get spicy quick. The Overhead Squats will start off fine and over time the shoulder fatigue will make it harder to stabilize the weight. The Bar Facing Burpees will be done quickly and will spike up the heart going into the Toes to Bar. Toes to Bar will challenge the core & hip flexors make the 100m Run a lot more challenging than expected. Sub 16min will be the goal with the RX+ athletes looking to be around 11min!

Common Rowing Errors In CrossFit

Stop Relying on Your Squat
A common error for weightlifting beginners is an overreliance on catching cleans in a squat position. We know you want to get under the bar, but you still have to finish your extension first. Check out this demo and see where your attention should be instead.
