There’s never enough talk about hands and how to best care for them when it comes to CrossFit. But rather than showing off tears and blisters as badges of honor, let’s change the narrative to PROTECTING them from such awful things!
Those of you who are newer to CrossFit might be experiencing your first callus build ups. Or maybe even your first tear (eek!). And for you veterans, sometimes it’s easier to just pick away at them as a nervous habit. But regardless where you are in your journey, there are some REALLY easy and fast ways to make sure your hands are well loved and cared for.
Here’s a quick video on how to tend to your callous in a safe and effective manner. If you have any questions or want to try tackle them ‘supervised by a coach’, let us know and we’ll help you!
HOODIE ORDERS DUE FRIDAY!
That’s right… if you want a 2017/18 Hoodie you need place your order by THIS FRIDAY! That means you need to pick the size and option that you want… and we’ll bill you for it. This year we have TWO options for you to choose from! Both are zip up front hoodies (and both will be charcoal with a blue shell), but one is a light weight warm up style and other is a heavier and cozy option. So, whatever your needs, we have something for you! The design is the same on both, so it is about fabric and feel to decide what’s best for you! No worries if you are unsure, we have SAMPLES of each at the gym… so try them on for size AND fit! You will need to order not just the type, but your specific size! The lightweight option will be $50 and the heavyweight will be $55. So, head on in and get fitted for the new Cove Swag!
Again, we will be placing the order THIS FRIDAY, so make sure you lock in your hoodie this week. And yes, they are set to arrive by Christmas (12/23 to be exact). Order your hoodies HERE!
1,000/800 M Row
30 Toes to Bar
15 Ring Dips
Fitness: 40 Sit ups
Performance: 25 Toes to Bar
Open: 30 Toes to Bar (20 Ring Dips)
Coach’s Tip: This is one of those WODs that does not look too bad on paper, but will end up being a longer bodyweight workout that is hard to finish if scaled appropriately. We should be aiming for a scale and/or volume that allows you to finish in 20-25 minutes. We’ll time cap it at 25 so if your first round is 8 minutes or longer, scale the next two!
