MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
As our community continues to grow, it’s important to stay connected as athletes and as people. You might be a morning bird and only see people on a similar early schedule. And the evening folks might only know other members from scores they see posted on the WhiteBoard. We want to create as much opportunity for you all to get to know each other better AND have some good ol’ fun in the process. We’ve got a lot of great events planned in the near future and we want you to mark your calendars before your dance cards get too full! Here’s a list of some of the great things we’ll be doing:
November 25th the Cove heads to Jailbreak! It is the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving and a big group will be heading to Jailbreak that night to enjoy some of Larry’s BullHead Pit Beef and sip some adult beverages. More details on times to come!
December 4th (a Friday) will be our first BROMANCE WOD & WHISKEY (or beer or whatever else you enjoy). It will be a men’s only event (sorry ladies) so come with your most macho vibe (maybe wait to shave that Movember beard into a handlebar mustache?) and throw down with the men of the Cove. It will replace the regular 6:30pm WOD and we’ll hang out at the gym after.
On Friday December 18th we will have our first annual Holiday WOD and Potluck in lieu of the regular 6:30pm class. For those of you who are on the blog awaiting the workout every night at 8p, we CAN tell you that this one will be a “12 Days of Christmas WOD”. Like the song the “12 Days of Christmas”, you will complete each exercise in ascending order then work back down to 1, adding one exercise per round. Like this: 1; 2-1; 3-2-1; 4-3-2-1; etc – for a total of 364 reps. But of course we won’t reveal ALL of it. The movements will be a secret and taunt you for the next month — just like that wrapped present you’re not allowed to touch until the big day!
January (date TBD) will be our Babes and Barbells event. So far people have voted for a Sunday brunch and we’ll be sending out more details on date and time. But let’s assume Mimosas and Bloodies will be a must.
Saturday February 6th will be our 1 Year Anniversary Bash. It is hard to believe but we will be celebrating our one year anniversary and to mark the occasion we will be throwing a party on Saturday evening from 7p – 10p. This will not incorporate a WOD, so doll yourselves up and show your fellow athletes what you REALLY look like outside in the real world. And everyone can invite a plus-one. More details to come, but this will be an adult-only evening, so line up those sitters and get ready for a really fun night.
In addition to the events above, we will be kicking off another Whole 30 eating challenge in January!
It is the community that makes the Cove such a special place. We know it is a busy time of year but we would love to see each and every one of you at these events!
7 Sets of the Following:
1 Squat Clean + 2 Front Squats (build up in weight)
**between each set mobilize front rack position**
300 meter Row after each set, so you end on the rower
**The weight should be LIGHT. The goal is to move fast on the row (not use it as a rest) and move the barbell in big sets**
