It’s just another great day.  One thing I feel safe saying about CrossFit is that it never gets old and it never ceases to be humbling.  Start your weekend off right with the mindset that you need it to prepare yourself to push even harder next week.  Get some 101ers!

Complete as many rounds as possible in 5min:
20 Burpees
20 Abmat sit ups
20 Back Squats, 225lbs (scale 185/135/95/65)

Open skills challenges:
10 linked up muscle ups
200 unbroken double unders

Thank you to all our CrossFit Games Open competitors AND supporters for giving your all in the first week’s workout. All the burpees we’ve been doing as a community have helped our team place in the top 20 (out of 103 teams) for our region. Even if it’s just the first week, we are very proud of all our 101ers’ hard work.

Whether you did well or not, take your results as just that, a result. From that result, reflect back upon what you could have improved and keep note of that for the next workout. Second guessing doesn’t do anything positive for you. If you absolutely tried your best, you have nothing to regret. Keep your focus on what is in your control.

Whether we’re in the top 1 percentile or in the 99th percentile, we will always give it 101% effort. #thereisnoquit

Lastly, thank you to everyone who made the potluck luncheon a great time!

People respond to incentives and positivity much better than to punishment or negativity. In this workout, you are rewarded with a faster time (and less burpees) if you can commit to the double unders and get as many done as quickly as possible.

Even when scaling to single unders, the athletes are still motivated to get in as many reps as possible. Whether you finished with double unders, single unders, or just pushed through the whole workout with a lot of burpees, as long as you gave it your best, that’s what matters.

Workout
For time:
150 double unders (scale x5 single unders)
Do 5 burpees at the start of the minute for every minute until completion. 20min cap.

I was inspired by OPT of CrossFit Calgary to program a workout that would help us focus on “unbroken” or continuous reps.  To do this, I programmed in a little incentive, or penalty, as some would see it, for breaking up any sets.  It was a little tricky to scale down, but by the looks of everyone’s faces, I think this is a WOD we’ll keep around.  Solid work everyone.

“Unbroken”

As a team, anything becomes possible. I originally programmed for us to do 1000 burpees and 1000 leg lifts because I was worried the rest times were going to be too long in between rotations. But, after calculating how long it would take to do 1000 burpees at 3 seconds and burpee, it looked like it was going to take at least 50 minutes to complete this group workout, which in our world, is a pretty long time.

This team did it in 52 minutes and did it with a lot of heart. Whether they could contribute 5 or 25 burpees into our collective pot, each rep counted and each individual gave their best to add their contribution to the team’s goal. The cold, rain, and wind did not deter them from working hard towards their goal. It was an awesome day!

Mann dubbed this workout the “Bill Crosby” as all of our legs felt like jello after this workout. We are sore today, we will be even sorer tomorrow. But, we’ll recover and be stronger, faster, and leaner for our efforts.
