Guest blog Part 2 with Coach Bryan!

A BIG decision indeed…you must choose…

will YOU complete all 60 days of the CFHV Burpee Challenge?

Today is day 7!

Miss a day?  Miss ALL the days?

We’ve got you covered!  Just do 28 burpees today (7+6+5+4+3+2+1=28) and you’re back in the game!

November may see the end of the year begin to draw near, but that doesn’t mean we’re slowing down at CFHV!

In addition to the aforementioned 60 day Burpee Challenge that will round the year out, check out what else is in store:

November Guest Days are going on now!  There are posters everywhere!  Hopefully you’ve already brought by a friend of family member and shared the love with them.  Every Monday-Thursday @6, 7, & 930am, & 630pm.  Fridays, any class all day!

Trial by Fire Test-In is THIS Saturday in place of specialty class.  10-11:30am, and there are over 25 of you testing.  Could this be the beginning of a new Advanced Class?  Let’s see how many of you can pass and stay tuned!

strongWOD returns with Coach Jose every Saturday @ 10am for specialty class starting on November 19 and running for 8 weeks ONLY!  If you missed it last time, no doubt you heard about it.  It’s already included in your Unlimited membership, so no reason NOT to come experience the fun!

Holiday Party on Saturday December 10 is an annual tradition, and our BIGGEST event other than MURPH!  A great way to celebrate all of your accomplishments of the past year, and to look forward to the future before the year kicks off.  Let’s not forget the great food, drinks, dancing, and of course….the AWARDS!  Who will take home a trophy this year??

Today we pick up where we left off on Wednesday.

In Coach Tyler’s guest blog he discussed why repetition is important in our training, and how that doesn’t necessarily have to mean the end of variation.

Part of that repetition is to see the progression of your abilities over time, and unless you have a photographic memory you might need to log that somehow.

Today Coach Bryan builds upon that idea, and discusses the importance of keeping a personal log!

“Have you ever had trouble recalling what you lifted the prior week when asked to build upon what you did? Or even forget what you 1-rep max is on a lift? Benchmark time? Etc…

It happens all the time, whether you are brand new or been CrossFitting for multiple years.

Shouting out your score during class is an accomplishment, especially after you’ve given a workout everything you have…but logging it afterward in your own personal logbook is key!

Why? Not only will it show you how far you’ve progressed as a CrossFitter, but it will expose what your weaknesses are.  It also helps you recall what you’ve done recently, which is especially important if you are asked to build upon the numbers you’ve hit.

Those few extra minutes after mobilizing or cooling down (also major keys) to log what you just did will make a huge difference in terms of your progression.

So please, log what you do!

I personally bought myself mini note pads when I first began, then went the spread sheet route for all my max lifts and benchmarks, to eventually logging my scores in an online platform.

My point is that there are many ways you can log what you do, and I promise the future you will thank you for it!

Keep up the hard work & happy lifting!”

So there it is!  Two for one this week!

Announcements!:

Olympic Drills for Skills:

This is the final week for our specialty Oly class on Saturday this year!.  We’ve spent the last 9 weeks honing our skills in the Olympic lifts, and this is your last chance until Oly returns in January.  Be there Saturday from 10-11:30am!

Open Gym & “Trial by Fire”:

Next Saturday, November 5 from 10-11:30 in place of specialty class will be a one-time only “Trial by Fire” training session.

This will be an open gym format, but coaches will be on hand to answer your questions, give advice, or help you with a sticking point if you are testing on Saturday, November 12.

We have 26 people testing (so far), including multiple athletes from gyms all over the Los Angeles area!

Don’t forget we also now have Open gym EVERY Saturday from 11:30-1:30!

Guest Days:

Check out the posters all over the gym!

We want you to be able to show all of your friends how you’ve become such an awesome athlete! The best part about CrossFit is the community, and we love welcoming new faces!

The best way to introduce someone you know to CrossFit is to show them!  Be their ambassador, bring them to class with you, and show them the way.

ANY 7am, 9:30am or 6:30pm class Monday through Thursday, and ALL CLASSES on Friday are open for you to bring a friend or family member.  That’s for the entire month of November!
