I have played guitar since I was in high school. And as anyone who attends any of the classes I teach at Flower City CrossFit or CrossFit Webster knows, I am a huge fan of rock music. If you are as big a fan of rock music as I am, you undoubtably read lots of articles about it, follow bands/musicians on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, etc. Whenever I see images of concerts, I always get a kick out of the crazy faces that rock guitarists (in particular) make.
Over the years of running CrossFit gyms, we have taken literally thousands and thousands of pictures of amazing people pushing themselves to the limit. Many times I have been stricken by a fleeting thought of how similar the faces that athletes make at the point of maximal effort are to the faces of rock guitarists mid-solo.
So, this week I programmed the following workout for our CrossFit Endurance (CFE) classes:
20 Minute AMRAP:
Bodyweight Deadlift static hold
Run 400 meters
Every time you drop the bar, run 400 meters. Oh, and the bar should be either an axle bar, or a regular barbell with fat grips on it.
As usual we were taking pictures at some of the classes, and as soon as I saw the images I was struck by how similar the faces people were making are to the faces made by rock guitarists.
A few hours and several photoshop sessions later, the Deadlift Rockstars were born. I hope you enjoy these as much as our members have! - Jeff
We are CLOSED Saturday, July 4th, but all other classes are on for Friday and Sunday. The WOD for Saturday is a 5K run. Get some!
Enjoy your holiday weekend!
CrossFit Kids is for ages 4-17 years old. 4-year-olds must be able to interact in the class independently (but parents can watch from the side of the room). For more information about CrossFit Kids, read our general information page.
For the summer session, the younger kids will be at Flower City CrossFit on Thursdays from 6-7 pm and the teens will be at CrossFit Webster on Tues/Thurs nights from 6:30 - 7:30 pm.
This was a 5K Run on the runway at the airport with eight CrossFit gyms managing stations with mini-WODs along the course.
