Hopefully we have all started adjusting to training from home! It helps to set a daily routine, and make sure you schedule some exercise and sunshine every single day. Try to get your family and/or pets to work out with you. It could be time to start training for that first 5k or half marathon!! … Read more »
We’ve got a great week ahead of us at the box! I know most of you will be relieved to know that there will NOT be any burpees this week. We will see some fun and challenging lifting complexes, and an opportunity for a one rep max. Lots of barbell, and lots of time on… Read more »
This week you can look forward to a lot more lifting, especially at the front end of the week! There’s even a one-rep max test day for the front squat, as well as a bench press day. I know we are all “burpeed-out” so to speak–you will see them this week, but nothing like the… Read more »
Can you believe that we are already entering into March?? The first week of the month features some awesomely challenging programming! We are getting a real variety this week, including some movements that we haven’t seen in a while (pistols, sumo deadlifts). The week will bring some short, high intensity workouts, but also features a… Read more »
This is going to be a challenging week, my friends!! Don’t forget to bring in those knee sleeves, you’ll need them quite a bit this week. Squats feature in a majority of the workouts, but they are relatively light weight so you will want to really speed through them when they come up in a… Read more »
What a great week we had last week!! Anyone still sore from all those squats on Valentine’s Day? Hopefully you used the weekend to recover and eat some well-deserved chocolates and treats with your loved ones. A little treat now and then is good for the soul! Our prescription to burn off those dessert calories… Read more »
This week we are getting heavy (again), and our legs are definitely going to get the brunt of it!! Back squats, front squats, deadlifts… throw in a bear complex (if you don’t know what that is, you’ll find out on Friday) and you’ve got a recipe for some serious leg fatigue!! But we love that,… Read more »
The programming has been super fun and challenging lately, and this week is no exception. Hope you like barbell work, because we will be using barbells every single day this week. We can expect to see the return of some movements that we have been working on, such as deadlifts, snatches, and back squats. There… Read more »
This week is going to be epic! Lots of barbell work this week, guys–and lots of chances to go heavy, too, for those of you looking to challenge yourselves. Every day will feature a barbell movement of some kind. But we have a lot more than just lifting this week! There’s a lot of gymnastics-type… Read more »
Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! This week’s programming looks challenging (and fun!) so make sure you commit to coming several days! We will be working with the barbell EVERY DAY this week (except Saturday), mostly in our “skill” portion of class, but also in the WODs. We begin and end the work week with… Read more »
Hopefully we have all started adjusting to training from home! It helps to set a daily routine, and make sure you schedule some exercise and sunshine every single day. Try to get your family and/or pets to work out with you. It could be time to start training for that first 5k or half marathon!! If running isn’t your thing we still have plenty of options for you, depending on how much equipment you may have from home.
This week’s programming looks at little different in Beyond the Whiteboard. NCR, who does our programming, has stopped listing Priorities and has added a “cash out” option to go along with the “No Equipment” and “Limited Equipment” workouts. I have also included the regular workouts for those of you lucky enough to have a fully stocked home gym. It seems like they’re really trying to get creative with the different kinds of movements they include (so we don’t end up doing a million burpees or lunges). You can also find ways to use household objects to replace equipment you would use in the gym… for example, you can grab your kid’s backpack and fill it with water bottles and use it for a weighted vest!
If you’re finding yourself getting lonely in isolation, please reach out to me (Coach Buffy) or any of the other Forward coaches or members. We are all here to support each other. It is my goal to come back a stronger athlete (that should be your goal, too), and for our community bond to be stronger than ever. You guys are what keeps me getting up everyday, and despite the challenges the world has presented us, I find myself smiling in spite of it all. This community is a blessing.
Have a good week, guys.
