Weekend Fitness to End Weakness!

Your physical fitness is an ongoing, no-rain-checks permitted, personal commitment.  At CrossFit Scottsdale, we appreciate the promises you have made with yourself to put your own wellness and ability to thrive at the top of your priority list.  Sometimes, just getting to the gym is the hardest part of your workout (especially on a lazy Saturday morning!).  But we guarantee that by the time you walk out our doors — if not mid thruster — you will be oh so glad you actualized your personal promises!

Kinesthetic Intelligence: The Importance of the Warm Up


Programming for Wednesday, March 20, 2013


Our bodies have a mind of their own.  It’s called Kinesthetic Intelligence.  When we perform movements over and over again, our muscles and motor neurons become ingrained so that we can achieve the same results, in the exact same way, every single time we attempt that particular movement.  For this precise reason, skill conditioning — like the Burgener Warm-up — is essential to our fitness and overall functional human development.  When you practice the Burgener Warm-up, it is important to practice with mindfulness, precision, and a willingness to critique and refine your movements.  By doing this, you can begin to create new kinesthetic patterns to improve your lifting, become a better athlete, and evolve as a more adaptive human being.

Constantly Varied Classes for Constantly Varied Fitness

Programming for Tuesday, March 19, 2013

3 Position Clean

20 Thrusters
20 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
20 Push Jerks
20 Overhead Squats
20 Front Squats
*Men will use a 95lb barbell. Women will use 65lbs. Each athlete must do four burpees at the beginning of every minute before moving on to the barbell work. The athlete is allowed to move to the next barbell skill once an he/she has completed all 20 reps. If the minute clock beeps during a repetition the athlete will complete their rep and then start their four burpees. There is a 20 min cap.

The explosive energy, muscle development, and mental toughness cultivated in weight training workouts — like the one we are challenging you to today — is undeniable, desirable, and indescribable.  After today’s weight training emphasis, tomorrow’s Bodyweight Class (held Mondays and Wednesday’s at 5pm) would be a perfect compliment to get maximum diversity in your fitness training.  This class, with an emphasis on high intensity compound movements using no external weights, is a wonderful fat burning, core strengthening, and performance enhancing variation and addition to our weight training programming.  So come crush today’s weight-intensive workout, and then give our Bodyweight class a try tomorrow!
