CFD Athletes! You all crushed the first week of the push/pull programming. This week we saw a few opportunities for "training" days where you were able to push your strength threshold as well as incorporate skill building. As a coach, this was very exciting to watch. This week you will notice the word "STIMULUS" on the whiteboard. The intention for this is to keep in mind the intended stimulus of the programming, and adjust (scale) the workout appropriately for yourself so that you are hitting that stimulus every day. Challenge yourself and hold yourself accountable! This is where we find

WHEW! Last week was exciting, we got to see a lot of PRs as we closed out our 9 Week Wendler Strength Cycle! If you hit a PR this week, please let one of the coaches know so that we can give you a shout out in next week's blog post! WHAT'S NEXT?! In July we will see some classic named girl workouts but they will have a unique twist on them…maybe that means heavier bars, longer rounds, who knows?! They will be challenging and fun! The other two highlights for this month are our Gymnastics Push and Pull days.

It is good to be back! I have been staying in Louisiana for the past week, where I dropped in at CrossFit NOLA. Working out in 100+ temps… I thought I was going to melt into the floor at one point. Interesting to see how the equipment there is completely rusted out from the humidity and salt from human use! Looking forward to getting back to CrossFit Develop, rust free equipment, and mild Wisconsin spring temps. We are entering our FINAL BUILDING WEEK of our Wendler 5/3/1 cycle! This week we will be working very close to our "single" lift

Happy Monday, everyone!   This week I'd like present a challenge to all who read this blog.  I'd like you to take a moment to think of an athlete at CFD that you really admire.  What is it about this person that sets them apart?  Attitude, work ethic, drive and determination... whatever it is, the challenge is to bring more of whatever that attribute is to your daily life in and out of the gym.  See how making mindful adjustments can impact your day, and those around you.  AND... if you feel so inclined, tell that person what it is you
