12/01/16: Mobility Seminar Tonight @ 6:30pm

  • TONIGHT @ 6:30PM – Shoulder Mobility Workshop with Keith Wittenstein @ CrossFit 908.  6:16PM and 7:15PM time classes are cancelled.  This workshop is for CrossFitters that need help going overhead. So basically all CrossFitters.  If you have tight shoulders, he will show you how to stretch them. If you have weak shoulders, he will show you how to strengthen them.  If they hurt and you don’t know why, we’ll figure that out together.  This workshop will focus on overhead mechanics that apply to handstands, overhead squats, and even pull ups. 2 hour long seminar, $35, sign up here. (Please note – Thursday’s 6:15pm and 7:15pm Weightlifting Club are cancelled due to seminar.  Everyone from open gym must finish up by 6:30pm.)
  • Saturday, December 3rd @ 8PM – It’s that time of year again…the 908 Christmas Party @ CrossFit 908!  All are welcome – family, spouses, kids, friends!  We will have some Kettlebell Kitchen dishes along with adult beverages, but please feel free to bring a food/beverage item of your choice.  Join the Facebook event here. (Please note – Sunday’s yoga and open gym are both cancelled due to party cleanup)
  • The Holiday Nutrition Challenge Starts on Monday, 12/05.  Sign up deadline is Friday, 12/02.  If you need a partner, put your name on the whiteboard at the gym OR email [email protected].  All teams will be decided by Sunday, 12/04.  We will be sending out a welcome email over the weekend.  For now, make sure you have joined the Facebook group.

Skill Of The Month – Rope Climb

  • The focus for Thursdays in December will be rope climbs.  During each class the coach will spend time with whoever is interested in learning how to properly climb ropes. You’ll learn multiple climbing techniques and be able to practice proper foot holds in a safe setting.  It is recommended that you purchase a calf sleeve to protect against rope burn when climbing and descending.  You want to buy a smaller size so it doesn’t slide when climbing.  I wear a medium.  Here is a video from Jason Khalipa on two popular styles of climbing.

Today is Thursday Yoursday, which means all classes are set up like open gym.  You can use the hour long class to work on a skill, make up a missed workout, work on mobility, lift, or just enjoy the ambiance.  We will be programming additional squatting on Thursdays and Sundays.  Bottom line, enjoy the day.  Do some stuff you need to work on, and do some stuff you love.
