Posts Tagged ‘Trainer’s WOD’

Back in January I posted a video of me and Orion working out, and asked if you guys enjoyed watching the Trainers WOD together. The feedback was yes, so here’s April’s video!

I have footage from a February and March workout, too. So look for those to surface soon!

The workout was a 15 minute pyramid featuring three movements: Wall Balls, Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups and Ab-Mat Sit-Ups. That means that once the clock starts you do one rep of each, then two reps of each. You continue climbing as high as you can until the clock hits 15:00, then you’re done!

***NOTE***
Orion used a THIRTY pound medicine ball. I only used a 20 pounder.

Good stuff. Let me know what you guys think of the video.

Ever since I met Tom Nugent and Sean Newbry last October at the CrossFit/USAW Competition, I’ve wanted to go visit them at their home gym, SnoRidge CrossFit, just outside of Seattle, Washington. This past month, I was finally able to make that happen!

Earlier this morning I visited Nadia Shatila and her crew at CrossFit Belltown (video to come soon), and when that was all over I hopped in the rental car and drove out to Snoqualmie (where SnoRidge is located).

Their new gym is beautiful, their Tour Guide (Ashley) is incredibly knowledgeable and I had such a blast there!

Thank you guys SO MUCH for letting me come by. I can’t wait for the next time!!

In constantly trying to keep new and entertaining material on this blog, I wanted to try out a new idea.

Since I’m always posting videos of my athletes working out, for all you guys know, all I like doing is sitting “behind” the stop watch and barking out orders. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. On top of loving the coaching part of CrossFit, I also train CrossFit myself.

Take a look at the video below, and tell me what you think! If you guys like it, Orion and I (along with other trainers who join us) will probably try to tape a monthly training session just to share with you.

So, let’s hear it… what’s your vote? Yay or Nay to continue posting “Trainer’s Workout” videos?

***Be advised, there is some inappropriate language in the song that accompanies the video***
