100713 – Tuesday

So we’ve been training our butts off! Summer’s here and We Are Ready…Ever Ready! Here’s some photos from our latest In House Challenge!

The few who could hang until the end…all the way until 64:20…that’s how fit you get 😉

Josh, aka Superman (seriously, he’s DC Comic’s real life Superman!), with a PR Snatch of 225#…and he Overhead Squatted it 3x!

Coach Tyler with a PR Snatch of 215#…and yeah, he Over Head Squatted it 3x too.

The girls talking workout strategy before WOD #1…the ladies of CrossFit High Voltage performed amazingly at the In House Challenge, showing enormous heart and improvement!

Carly rocking the Chest to Bar Pull Ups, and Nezir completing another Bar Muscle Up!

Friday night she was unsure, but come Saturday, Kirby used her consistent training with regular classes and the High Voltage Endurance Club to make it through all 3 WOD’s!

Coach Tim completing 1 of his 60 Bar Muscle Ups in under 10 minutes!

Chase was swinging the 44# KB overhead so quickly, modern technology aint got nothin on her!

RJ’s been crushing it lately…just like his shirt says, he’s a straight up ‘WOD Killa’ and the current gym record holder on for a 500 meter Row!

Frank not only rocked all 3 workouts, but even had enough strength to run the last leg of his 400 Meter, 45# bumper plate carry!

A little bit of everything going on at CrossFit High Voltage of Burbank. Big thanks to all the Volts and Vixens who came out and Challenged themselves this weekend. CrossFit isn’t necessarily and end in itself, but a means to other ends as well.

So we’ve been training our butts off! Summer’s here and We Are Ready…Ever Ready! Here’s some photos from our latest In House Challenge!

The few who could hang until the end…all the way until 64:20…that’s how fit you get 😉

Josh, aka Superman (seriously, he’s DC Comic’s real life Superman!), with a PR Snatch of 225#…and he Overhead Squatted it 3x!

Coach Tyler with a PR Snatch of 215#…and yeah, he Over Head Squatted it 3x too.

The girls talking workout strategy before WOD #1…the ladies of CrossFit High Voltage performed amazingly at the In House Challenge, showing enormous heart and improvement!

Carly rocking the Chest to Bar Pull Ups, and Nezir completing another Bar Muscle Up!

Friday night she was unsure, but come Saturday, Kirby used her consistent training with regular classes and the High Voltage Endurance Club to make it through all 3 WOD’s!

Coach Tim completing 1 of his 60 Bar Muscle Ups in under 10 minutes!

Chase was swinging the 44# KB overhead so quickly, modern technology aint got nothin on her!

RJ’s been crushing it lately…just like his shirt says, he’s a straight up ‘WOD Killa’ and the current gym record holder on for a 500 meter Row!

Frank not only rocked all 3 workouts, but even had enough strength to run the last leg of his 400 Meter, 45# bumper plate carry!

What an awesome weekend of awesomeness! We’ve been busting our butts over here, getting really fit and having a great time doing it…and a big part of doing all these great workouts and pushing yourself to new limits is so you can go out and try new things in the world that you probably wouldn’t ever do without CrossFit.

Saturday, Coach Tyler and I went to compete at the California State Games Weightlifting Championships in San Juan Capistrano. There were some seriously strong athletes at this meet…there was a 16 year old kid who weighed probably 160# and Clean & Jerked 310#! Absolutely incredible.

Coach Tyler took 3rd place in his weight class and I took 2nd in mine. It was just as exciting to go out there and lift as it was to find another opportunity to take ourselves out of our comfort zone. Even as a gym owner, it’s important to live what we talk about every day: learn and try new things, get comfortable being uncomfortable, and push yourself past what you think is possible.Carly, Coach Tim, USA Weightlifting Hall of Famer and our Coach and Mentor Bob Takano, Coach Tyler, and Chase after the competition.

Coach Takano has Coached 5 USA World Championship Teams, National Champions, Olympians, and 1 of only 5 Americans to ever get a double body weight Snatch! It is an honor to continue to learn from him and to share it with all of you.

Then on Sunday, our High Voltage Endurance Club ran the 10K at the ‘Keep LA Running’ race. Talk about a drastic change from the day before…but it’s  true that CrossFit has something for everyone…and it probably has a lot for you that you don’t even know you’ll like yet. I guess I shouldn’t start with the ‘after’ picture first, but it took quite a bit of effort on everyone’s part just to smile. Big ups to Coach Tom for all the awesome training he provided to our gym and Endurance athletes. In fact, he’s done such a great job that Lululemon of Glendale want him to be their Endurance Ambassador and help them become even more awesome!

I am incredibly proud of everyone who got out this weekend and did something that they normally wouldn’t do on their own. A lot of CrossFit is just that. You can do this stuff on your own…but it’s just not as much fun that way. The longer I’m in CrossFit, the more I realize it really is about the Community we’ve all created and being able to experience this stuff with your new best friends and family.

There’s so much to experience at CrossFit High Voltage of Burbank…and we’re just getting started!

See ya’ll on Monday!

This was a great WOD from a new competition coming up this October in Colorado. USA Weightlifting and CrossFit have teamed up for their first ever competition. It will be comprised of a full Olympic Weightlifting competition (1RM of Snatch and Clean & Jerk, total in kilos) combined with your total reps performed in 10 minutes of the triplet. It is going to be awesome! I’m very excited to see more and more growth in the CrossFit community, and I also think it will help expose people who might never do a full weightlifting competition to see how fun they are too.

I’m also very happy to report how STRONG everyone is getting! For the last few months we’ve been following the Max Effort Black Box programming for making relative strength gains during 2-3 of our skill sessions per week. The results really do speak for themselves. Not only were everyone’s Thrusters incredible today, but we are continually moving more and more athletes to doing the workouts ‘As Prescribed’! Doing workouts ‘As Rx’d’ is a very big initial goal when starting your CrossFit training…it doesn’t come right away, but with ‘Technique, Consistency, and Intensity’, we’re certain that you’ll be breathing fire in no time!
