Tuesday Attitude: Bein’ Care-Full

“Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul.”     -Mark Twain

There’s plenty at CF to “make your own” in the sense that you could be careless in your approach and apply your own style or preference. But, indeed, there is plenty to be TIDY about too in the sense that you must (yes, must) care about precision, there is no negotiation. Take care to carefully learn the exercises (ALL the exercises) so you get the best possible workout you can get.

Many of the CF Sunday Specials have specific skill work as the focus. This is your time to put in the effort.

This Sunday: Sunday Special Benchmark #2 Post Test 10:30AM
Re-test Burpee/DL (mini Diabla)
(or show up to do your pre-test if you missed the first time!)
(you should be competent at Deadlift…no one will be allowed to pull with a rounded back.)

Skills sessions (after the WOD):
Kipping Pull Up (come, learn, and practice…b/c around here it’s only fair if you pull your own weight!…not to mention, Benchmark #3 is up in a few weeks, and it has pullups!)

Struggling during CF classes on certain movements or exercises? Care to change that? Then show up for a Sunday Special.

    Lately, I feel like I need to back-up from a few exercises to regain the form. It’s amazing how quickly a twinge or zinger or a creak in a joint forces you into compensation mode….and then you’re stuck in it. Looking forward to Spring and refreshing the ‘precision’! And trying to make new gains on top of it. #!@*$(! double unders and push-ups!

    Very true JD! Those little nagging pains or tweaks can truly mess with form. After turning my ankle a couple weeks ago (trying to keep up with Gretch), I found myself compensating while simply running. After a long run this weekend my other foot is sore, go figure. Now last night I was compensating the other direction when doing swings. Focus, focus, focus. Keep up the practice to keep that form in order.
