Welcome to Pilchuck CrossFit

Welcome to Pilchuck CrossFit! CrossFit is a core strength & conditioning program that delivers a fitness that is by design, broad, general, and inclusive. Elements of track & field, gymnastics, weightlifting, and strongman are combined in short intense daily workouts to maximize results for any individual. CrossFit teaches functional movement patterns, or, movements that you find in real life -pushing, pulling, squatting, jumping, throwing, carrying, and sprinting.

"I hate mobility work. When I get to the gym, I want to lift, not roll around on a bunch of over priced dog toys for 30 minutes. I don’t read books about it or pore over videos of people strapping themselves up with rubber bands. The thought of lying on top of what looks likes a $50 sea anemone is something that just doesn’t interest me."

Check out Mike Gray's article 'Mobility for People Who Hate Mobility.'

Different Types of Barbells

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 08:25

Barbells. Yesterday I was asked about the difference between certain barbells in the gym as I was caught 'spinning' the sleeve before my Snatches. Most of you should know by now that I am passionate about Weightlifting which as a result has made me a big dork about Barbells. There are lots of different types of bars out there, some that are very poor quality that you might see at a commercial facility, and some that are worth more than my life, and are used for a very specific application. Rogue fitness made a video showing and explaining the different types of bars from the knurling, to the steel, to the length and diameter, and to the application of the Barbell. It's definitely worth the few minutes of your morning to educate yourself on the topic, since we use them every day.

Now overcoming injury is another tool that you can now add to that list.In life, we are the sum of all our injuries: physical, mental, emotional, everything. How we handle all of them.

CrossFit: Is It Really For Everyone?

There is a lot of buzz around CrossFit. There are the lovers. There are the haters. Then there are the ones who do not think they could ever do it. I have been asked three times, just this week, “Really? Can anyone do CrossFit or do I need to be in shape to start?” Preconceived notions seem to surround the sport of CrossFit. Those on the outside seem to fall into two camps.They either watch The Games and think that every workout in a box looks like THAT, or they look at the people who walk in and out of a CrossFit box and think they have to look like THAT. Here’s the inside scoop: The Games athletes can only complete workouts like THAT from doing CrossFit, and the people look like THAT by doing CrossFit. You have to do it. The catch is, you have to start somewhere, and very few of us have started CrossFit in the shape we are in now

Make sure you read the rest of the article HERE. 

 

A. 3 working sets of:

Back Squat x 5 Reps

Rest As Needed. 

**Today is the official start of our progression. Based off of your guys' 5 Rep Max last week we have determined where you start. So the coach today will give you guys your #'s for your Back Squats.**
