Weekly WOD Insights 3/9/20

Monday  Haven’t done tempo in a while and since we are doing a month at a time I figured this would be a good opportunity to start to add in some linear progression with changing the tempo from week to week. Try to remember to have someone count for you so you can be more honest with the […]

Boiling Point

I saw this nice little read that should resonate with a lot of folks out in the fitness and sport world on the concept of approaching “plateaus”.

Understanding Intensity

The other day after a short burner met con I was talking with Aaron (pronounced A A Ron) about how effective some of the shorter workouts can be. We both agreed that you really do not need a ton of time to get in a very effective workout. If you understand the intent of the […]

Would you like some Yin with that Yang?

When you think of Yin and Yang you think of balance. Light/Dark, Cold/Hot, Quiet/Loud, these are some examples we can think of that together will create balance. We do our best to create balance in our everyday lives but I think we could all (including myself) use some improvement in this area.
