What a Weekend

I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of CrossFit Las Cruces. Seeing everyone compete the way they did, seeing all those that came to show their support, and having fun from start to finish made this a weekend to remember. I said it Saturday night and I’ll say it again, this is the best CrossFit Las Cruces has ever been and we are only getting better and better each day!

Pull-Up or Muscle Up practice

I Want the Best You

Alright guys, game day is here! Remember, don’t worry about what the other teams are doing. All that I ask is that you perform the very best that you are capable of at that moment. Leave it all on the competition floor and you will walk away happy no matter what the outcome is. You all have worked so hard and have become such a tight group, it’s been a great experience to see how far everyone has come!

9/26/15 GameDay Warmup

Workout 1
Run or Row until you feel warm and loose (approx. 2-3 minutes)
Hit the usual dynamic stretches that we do in class:
Lunge Stretch (think spiderman high knee but stationary)
Inch worm (3-4 walk outs)
Hit bottom depth of squat and ensure ankle and knees are mobile and ready for full range of motion

2×8 Thruster with bar only

2 Rounds
5 Clusters (Squat clean straight to thruster) at workout weight or 5-10lbs heavier
