Notes–What a day! What a week! If you’ve been in the last few days in a row, then you are probably feeling pretty worked. I know I’ve been dreaming of a rest day since Tuesday You all did awesome today. Some of the movements were a little different, especially if you are a newbie, but everyone handled them very well. Go team! Remember, we have a fun event this Sunday, hosted by CFCM and Lululemon. Come run a 5k and bring any friends and family that you like. The more the merrier. We will just be hanging out after, so if nothing else, come for the after party! Have a great Friday everyone.

“30 Day Squat Cash Out Challenge” Day 17
150 Air Squats
Notes–I had a dream that the members of CFCM had the best looking rear ends of any CrossFit gym in Orange County! Ok, not really, but I wouldn’t be surprised after all of these squats! Remember, as the numbers go up, form is still very important. Keep the weight in your heels, your chest up, push your knees out, and get below parallel. If you know that you are not getting deep enough, please feel free to grab a medicine ball and squat to a target. If you are unsure, ask a coach… odds are we’ve told you already. How we practice transfers over to our workouts and our lifting, so do it right. There’s no point in practicing poor form. Keep working on your weaknesses and you will get stronger… I promise!
