The “Earn Your Turkey Challenge” is only three days away, so today was Clayton’s last workout before his first ever CrossFit event! He wasn’t alone, though, since Jamie came back for his second CrossFit workout as promised!

As I’ve been saying for the last few weeks, we’re putting a much stronger emphasis on stretching and mobility nowadays, so the first 10/15 minutes of class were spent stretching and foam rolling. I’m hoping in the coming weeks that athletes start to notice significant improvements in their performances due to our increased range of motion!

We finished stretching and then worked on Back Squats for sets of 5. Clayton kept the weight light because of the event this weekend, and Jamie was working on form since it was his first time doing Back Squats with us. Both went to full depth and kept their weight on their heels with their chest high on every rep. Full range of motion every rep….
That attention to detail gets a BOOOOOOM from me!
