100812 – Thursday

Wednesday’s WOD:

Deadlift 1RM!!!!

We’ve been building up to this for a little bit. I’ve been reading up on all different programming methods and models, page we’ve been trying out various routines, capsule protocols, and concepts…bouncing ideas off people….you get the picture. We do this for all of you. I do this every week, whether I realize it or not. I’m are always looking for a new way to help you all get a new goal you’ve been sweating for, pass a hurdle you’ve been stuck at, or just get somewhere you never thought you would have been without the support of an awesome community.

Usually this manifests itself in the form of some really great workouts and many people getting new PR’s and improving on their benchmarks…

Rarely do days like today happen…Days like today are really what make this so awesome for all of us at CrossFit High Voltage in Burbank.

The Deadlift is such a basic lift, and to see everyone put so much energy into it, and to take such pride in doing it well is absolutely incredible. The gym was filled with energy tonight…and each person that came in added even more energy to the room! To see the benefits of the hours and hours of programming pay off is incredible. I know I can speak for all of the Coaches at CFHV and say that Wednesday was a really special day…one that we hope we can continue to recreate again and again…it’s hard to have it happen on such a mass scale like we did…but that’s what we keep training for…

It’s about everyone getting better. It’s about helping each other improve. It’s about Community and Loyalty.

And the results speak for themselves!
