If you are in need of a food log to track your daily nutrition for the Paleo Challenge, here ya go. Remember to be as detailed as possible and bring it in once a week for us to review and offer helpful suggestions.  Day 1 is on the books!! Congratulations!

One of our challenges this month is max double unders… can you beat your current record? Remember to relax and keep the rope movement origination in your wrists.

WOD-

Front squat 3-3-3-3-3 reps

In the Front Squat we are simply building off of the Air Squat… the mechanics remain consistent. We are still looking for a shoulder-wide stance, neutral noggin, midline stabilization, weight in the heels, knees tracking over the toes, and full range of motion (below parallel at the bottom and fully extended, open hips at the top).

Have we mentioned that we have just started a CrossFit Kids program?!
We are currently offering classes for ages 5-14 on M-W-F from 4:15-5pm.

CrossFit Kids is not simply a scaled down version of CrossFit, it is entirely absolutely CrossFit… geared and designed for a special population and the specific developmental needs of that population (nuerological, cognitive, motor).

CrossFit Kids is the principal strength and conditioning program for many young athletes and the primary P.E. program for many home schools and charter schools. It is used by athletic teams, martial arts schools and many parents that want their kids to grow up healthy, strong and have a life-long love of working out thus avoiding the common problems associated with childhood inactivity and obesity.

Our program delivers a fitness that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing. Healthy living requires that our kids push, pull, run, throw, climb, lift, jump, effectively and safely regardless of whether or not they play athletics. Athletics is a specialized pursuit.  Our goal is to support the specialist, but reward the generalist.

The CrossFit Kids program is designed for universal scalability making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We’ve used our same routines for 4 year olds and elite high school athletes. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change programs.  The needs of our second graders and our high school wrestler differ by degree not kind. (Thanks to CrossFit Kids for that….)
