"I am stoked to have been able to attend this. It was the greatest affirmation of what has been cultivated in my own heart and mind, and what I have been trying to cultivate in the hearts and minds of my clients. CrossFit can and has changed fitness and the perspective of what is humanly possible, but I believe that the changes that matter are the ones we can’t see, and it made me so excited to see this message put out there so effectively. The seminar was great. The presentation so genuine. Greg, I see you just have so much love for the people around you, and that is what inspires me most of all! I am honored to know you. Thank you for leading by example."

Some people feel content to navigate life without any particular need for a spiritual solution to their problems. They have no inclination to seek God in order to have a basis for meaning in life, to have a strong moral framework, to aspire for greatness, or to find fulfillment and happiness.
That is not my story.
I have discovered that when I earnestly seek God “with all my heart, with all my mind, with all my soul, and with all my strength” (Deuteronomy 6:5), then all the puzzle-pieces of my life seem to fit perfectly together.
Seeking God provides me with meaning and purpose, solidifies my moral framework, allows for victory I could never achieve on my own, and provides my heart with fulfillment and true happiness.
What will the legacy of your story be?

Burpee, 15 Repetitions

TUESDAY 181016

“Old School”

5 RM Front Squat (Use the Rack // RM = weight you can squat 5 but not 6 times \\)
Rest as needed then,
40 Toes to Bar
Rest as needed then,
3 RM Front Squat
Rest as needed then,
30 Toes to Bar
Rest as needed then,
1 RM Squat
Rest as needed then,
10 Toes to Bar

Rest 5 minutes then,

Run the big loop for time or Concept2 Row 2K.

Notes: In the early days of CrossFit, this type of programming was central to the philosophy of Coach Glassman. He wanted his athletes strong in both gymnastics, and weightlifting, and he loved to statically and dynamically tax the midline and core. The first part of our training day is not “on the clock”. Rather, we are going to move as much weight through the Front Squat as possible, and then complete the required number of Toes to Bar repetitions in the fewest number of sets possible. Our goal is to experience the effect on the midsection as we maintain midline stability through the Front Squat and Toes to Bar. Expect to be sore on Wednesday! Compare today’s weight to July 21, 2018.
