The Masters Qualifer WODs have been announced and Owen has his work cut out for him! Join us tomorrow during Open Gym to cheer him on or join him as he performs the Row/HSPU/DU and Pullup/WB WODs!
Life is full of risks. We decide whether to take those risks by analyzing the potential benefits. Getting behind the wheel of a car, going for a jog, and going skiing all present risks that many people are comfortable taking. There are risks inherent with any movement and physical activity and those risks increase with the intensity of the activity. In CrossFit we want to build consistent mechanics and good movement patterns before we add heavy weights and speed. Practicing barbell lifts with moderate loads like in today’s 12 minute EMOM is a great way to build muscle memory and mechanics.
If you have a previous injury, remember to weigh the risk/reward of certain movements. If you have a bad knee, then pistols or weighted lunges probably aren’t a great option. Ask your coach for scaling options!
Owen finished the CrossFit Open ranked #128 in the Master’s 55-60 division worldwide! This means he will compete in the Masters Qualifier, a 4-day, 4-workout event that determines who gets to participate in the CrossFit Games!
Plan to come to the gym this weekend to do the Masters WODs with Owen or to cheer him on! Let’s get the Vintage Spirit going in full force to make sure that he will Keep GOwen!
Congratulations to all MS150 riders who biked from Houston to Austin over the weekend! Great job by Vintage athletes Stephanie K and Coach Justin!
