As you’ve seen, we’ve already begun rolling out some of the changes we hope to implement following the gym survey (see Monday and Tuesday’s Daily WOD posts if you missed them). Another thing we heard was that as the gym grows, many of you crave other ways to keep the community strong. While we have a Facebook group where we share often, it is not a private group for members only. In order to create the conversation and community going when we are OUTSIDE the box, we’ll create a virtual place where you can feel like you are INSIDE the box. This is meant for all kinds of exchanges RELATED TO THE GYM AND ITS MEMBERS. It’s not where you post pictures of your kids or rant about politics (that’s for your OWN personal FB page), but if it’s about anything you think useful or informative for the gym and it’s members, please post away! This could be anything from organizing social events to sale on Reebok Nanos you see at Dicks).
Monday we were all body weight movements and yesterday we were all barbell. Today we mix the two with box jumps and deadlifts! This can be a powerful combination for your fitness (both requiring tremendous strength and explosive actions from your hams and glutes) but it will also require VERY careful jumping. Make sure you focus on that landing platform on the box, swing those arms wide to the side and land softly.
