April is “Train Your Weaknesses” Month


Even the strongest chain can fall apart with a weak link

While the details are still being worked out, Nicole and I have decided to make the entire month of April an opportunity to train your weaknesses. Whether it’s handstand push-ups, L pull-ups, high-rep sit-ups, or whatever, we’re going to be offering up workouts on a daily basis designed to address the chinks in your armor.

The national site WOD will still get its just due and figure prominently as the staple of our programming, but there will be an alternative workout thrown together as well on a daily basis.

This will be a one-time thing, however. We’ve seen the results that the national-level programming has to offer and are not planning on keeping the April format intact indefinitely.

With that in mind, post to comments the weaknesses you’d like to work on in April. Those of you participating in the CFO Throwdown should have plenty of experience to draw upon, so don’t be silent!

***REMINDER 1***

There will be no 4pm class on Easter Sunday. The 9am and 10am classes will run as normal, however.

***REMINDER 2***

We’ll be rolling out our 7am Fundamentals class beginning next Monday, March 24. This class will run 3 days/week (MWF) and allow you to hone your skills in our foundational movements and beyond.

    Weakness? What are you talking about?

    OH squat, cleans, HSPU, rope climbing, flexibility, double unders. &nbsp &nbsp

    also, if you could find me a fresh set of lungs, that would help me in all those damn high rep/intensity workouts. nothing wrong with dreaming big right?

    ah, yes…double unders. I hates them. I guess that means I need to work on them, too.

  5. Tamara March 22, 2008 at 7:52 pm

    Muscle up, handstand push up, anything with an “L”, OH squat, snatches, running & Midgets!

    Honestly Mike and Nicole –

    I have so much room to improve – I can’t really pinpoint one thing. Maybe sit-ups? Those always seem to hold me back on Michael.

    Let me know if something comes to mind.

    My weakness: Jager Bombs, Heineken, and Sean Kingston. Ok, I’ll be honest, actually Heineken Light.

    Also overhead squats.

    Tamara, is that in “midget tossing?”

    What if Crossfit is your weakness? how do I work on that?

  9. Robyn March 23, 2008 at 1:33 am

    Weaknesses: Good Wine, Bad Men and Mediocre TV

    Brad I believe your weakness is your driver and your short game. I could definitely list others but I don’t think you want the others to hear!

    Jonathan, I let a midget beat me in the 400m run, so I guess I need to work on my midget racing :)

    Tamara –

    Do you know if I re-arrange the first three letters of your first name, it spells – ATM.

    Which is how I’m going to treat you on Wednesday.

    shoulder press, handstand pushups, and high-rep pullups.
