@getworkt with a serious hook up for a few lucky athletes at the #mountainmeltdown next week.
Doesn't get any better when it comes to quality in both the function and print.
Everyone... Meet Jack. He is one of the newest members of the gym and is 84 years old. Here he is in class doing wall ball, burpees, and step ups with the rest of the crew.
THIS is what I love about CrossFit. This is what inspires all of us and exactly what I talk about every weekend at a Level 1 when it comes to quality of life. Health isn't simply an absence of disease. It's a part of it, but our general work capacity has a HUGE role in our quality of life.
Thanks for the motivation Jack. I want to be like you in the gym when I grow up.
5 thrusters (185)
100 double unders
3 thruster (195)
50 double unders
1 thruster (205)
25 double unders *change your own weight and no rest between rounds
Adjust the weight accordingly so each round is heavy. Maybe up, maybe down. Either way it was a great workout.
I love competition, but the community is what drives @crossfit. This event is for the community. Less a competition and more an experience that I hope encourages all of us to support one another on this journey of fitness.
May 2nd will be the 2nd annual #mountain meltdown powered by @progenex and @crossfitprkcty. Looking forward to seeing all of you there for what we hope is an unforgettable experience.
Today's workout @crossfitprkcty
4 min on 3 min rest
15 box jump
10 wall ball
@erinruzek has had some issues with her chin getting scraped up from the medball. Her solution today? A maxi pad strapped to her chin with a headband.
Reliable, bombproof gear, with the best customer service in the biz. @roguefitness #ryourogue
For those of you that don't know I LOVE motorcycles. Couldn't bring myself to get something that would have me barreling down the highway again. The solution? @roguebuilds built this epic ride for me. A moped that is upgraded to say the least. Some serious time and energy went into making this what it is today and I can't wait to take @foxyroxy129 for a ride.
Weather is just turning here in the mountains so it's perfect timing.
World Class Fitness in 100 Words has a piece that encourages us to "learn and play new sports". We discovered a basketball net and decided on a game of "21" which turned into 2 on 2. @connor_stewart_martin and I are CLEARLY learning the sport while @dtcflo2 and @crossfitstrong are playing.
I may have taken 2 on 2 a bit too literally.
One of the many opportune moments to capture your friends looking ridiculous at the L1. @ericcrossfit has found what appears to be a "comfortable" resting option by creating a rope "thong". Best job in the world with the best co-workers in the world.
The pups getting in some rest. Avalanche is already a fan of the couch.
Following up 20 rep back squat with some #dannybroflex bench press!
#ECC forcing me out of my comfort zone again. 275 for reps is no joke for me. Gotta get in the right head space for a workout like that. Having an incredibly supportive team behind me was key. Thanks for the pic @supercleary
100# DB snatches to finish up a fun team workout along side some good friends. Thanks to @roguefitness for letting some HQ staff crash their gym for the day.
Pulling some old and odd movements from the @benbergeron days. Much of which he does not remember giving me, but I will never forget. These were from a few years ago with a 20 lb vest.
Today I did:
AMRAP 20 min
21 cal on assault bike
7 burpees to top of box
If you give it a try find a height that is about shoulder level. Something you can't jump for reps. For me that's 48". Be smart with your set up so you don't end up on some epic "fail" video. Have some fun and change it up.
20 rep back squats and cleans. Great start to the day and nice to have a weekend home.
While driving back from a kids museum I was distracted by a delicious cupcake and good conversation with my wife @foxyroxy129. Kids napping in the back and I pulled the ultimate "Clark Griswald" detour to Wyoming. Good thing my wife has a great sense of humor. #missedanexit #itsonly90minutesoutoftheway
Pushing the @roguefitness butcher in the snow while Oakley keeps watch. Thanks to @dzakaras for the pic.
If you are joining in on the fun at the Mountain Meltdown, powered by @progenex and @crossfitprkcty you won't be carrying anything this year. @roguefitness didn't build what you will be running up but they are sending out the best equipment you could ask for, and you will be thankful for the @reebok #nanossage after your epic run filled with workouts.
May 2nd marks the second annual epic event that welcomes any and all levels. It's all about the community and celebrating your fitness.

I don't know what I love more about this vid. #spealbot trying a clean for the first time or seeing how proud he is of himself.
If you can show a 5 year old how to jump and land, you can teach anyone some simple fundamentals of Olympic lifting.
The demands of an upright torso in your squat require strength in the posterior chain, and good ankle mobility.
Having short femurs and a beard can't hurt either.
