|And just like that, our #GetBig series is behind us. As we move into the fall, it’s time we start looking forward to how we can build the necessary momentum to finish the year strong. |
Healthy Habits Move the Needle
The holidays are notoriously a time when it can be challenging to stay on track with your fitness and nutrition. By working on building healthy habits early in the fall, you can make sure that this holiday season is different and that you can still move the needle in the right direction as we head into the end of the year. Over the next few weeks, we’ll focus on tried-and-true methods to help you build lasting habits and finish the year strong.

#MAINLINEMONDAY; CFML’S HIGH POWERED OPEN GYM WORKOUT OF THE WEEK:
Today’s workout is programmed by CrossFit Games rookie Rebecca Fuselier
EMOM 24 Minutes
Minute 1: 200m Run
Minute 2: Power Clean + Squat Clean (increase weight each round)
Minute 3: 17/14 Calorie Row
Minute 4: 6 Toes to Bar + 5 Chest to Bar + 4 Bar Muscle Ups
- This workout is a “choose your own weight” for the barbell. Lets go heavy, but ensure that form is kept throughout the 6 rounds
- Reduce the # of calories on the rower to a # that you have at least 10 to 15 seconds of rest / transition time
Advice from our coaches:
This EMOM has a little bit of everything in it. We are going to hit all the modalities (weightlifting, gymnastics, and monostructural) for quite a few rounds. We love EMOMs because it is you against the clock and you can adjust the reps and the movement variations for where you are at as an individual. Realize you should be left with a little bit of rest/transition time on each station.
