SATURDAY, MAY 25 2019

To best improve your fitness, we need to go through certain training blocks and progressions. If you want to run a marathon, you first need to build up to ensure safety and general preparedness. Jumping into a race without training won't leave you with the best results. Our Functional Fit classes are the same. We have been doing a lot of running, especially on Saturday's to get our bodies in peak shape. This WOD is general done annual amongst many functional fitness enthusiasts globally, often times on the US Memorial Day weekend. Memorial Day is May 27th, so this is the best opportunity to get it in. This workout was named after a US military member that died in battle. Feel free to look up more information on the WOD Murph if you are interested.

Possessing certain amounts of grip strength is required for many different daily activities, and certainly gym exercises. Movements like deadlifts, kettle bell swings, and pull-ups are just a few that come to mind when thinking about grip. To even begin to think about performing a pull-up, one first has to be able to hold their entire body weight from their hands. Training grip strength will benefit many functions. Friday's functional fit class features an AMRAP to get those gripper fired up. Challenge yourself with the KB weights to give you an even harder workout.

Pretty much everything we do shortens our hamstrings, sitting, walking, you name it. Short hamstrings lead to limited range of motion when bending over. If you have trouble bending over to put up any object off the ground, even as light as a pencil, you can compensate your back positioning and risk injury. Spending time, not just when it comes up in the class, to stretch and mobilize the hamstrings is usually a pretty good idea. Today we got you covered, but add it in to the routine and get after it!

Our bodies are going to get exposed to a bunch of deadlifts - some light, some heavy. The goal of the skill is to build up each round to a heavy single by the last set. There are nine sets, so make small jumps after each round. The first three rounds are five reps, the next three are three reps, and finishing off with three singles. For the WOD we will have the deadlift again, but those are more of a nuisance as the weight will be one we can comfortably do for the push press. Remember we deadlift daily, picking anything off the ground is a deadlift, so we are building strength for our hours outside the gym.

What is a skill that we do daily, that we might take for granted - moving our body. Everyday, we move our body, sometimes free of loads, like just walking down the street or getting off the couch.

When doing new movements, DOMS is usually a results. DOMS stands for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, and usually kicks in 24-48 hours post workout. One way to reduce DOMS could be to increase range of motion (ROM). Sumo deadlifts place a greater emphasis on the adductors (inner thigh muscles). The adductor are often tight and underworked, due to the long sitting durations through our day.

Caffeine a stimulant to help with fatigue and drowsiness. A withdrawl from caffeine can cause a headache. Exercise can help to reduce headaches, and help release stress.
