Beast Mode: Renee

A rare appearance from Renee this summer.

Age: 14 bodyweight: 107. - 5 Rep max front squat at 100 lbs


A couple things to bring to your attention:

  1. There is a new "Testimonials" section displayed in the top panel next to the Moms tab. This is your place to brag about any achievements or improvements you have made in the workouts, your sports, or anything else.
  2. Videos will be added to the Mom's Club section. Check back accordingly.
  3. Challenge #1 was conquered by Matt Morrow and Aly B. Challenge #2 is still currently in progress. However, the only entry thus far has been from Emma and Abby, which may or may not be suitable to show on this site. Be creative...unless you haven't signed the waiver yet.
  4. As previously posted, this weekend is the legendary Hawaiian workout. If I were to pick one workout to attend all summer, this would be the one. Hands down. Be sure to come dressed for the occasion.

Hawaiian Theme 2.0

It is that time of the year. The Hawaiian workout is upon us like an impromptu ukelele jam at the Ann Arbor Art Fair (which is happening this weekend by the way for those of you looking to add something to your summer to do list or as the the biologist said, "a little culture can change the world.") You can not lei away your way out of paying the ultimate price on this one and you for sure will not be able to avoid the water. As the Hawaiian landowner said at harvest time, "I wonder what the serf has for us today!" Don't forget though, as a good Samoan hostess will attest to, it is all about poise.


This video courtesy of CrossFit Endurance discusses the benefits of proper hydration.

How many of you are drinking half your bodyweight in ounces of water each day? You don't need to be on the Hard Routine to follow this either. Here's Kelly Starrett's addition to the cause.

Let's make it a habit to at least get half your bodyweight in ounces. Then we'll work from there.

The Importance of the Mental Game...


If you are wondering why I tagged this post in both nutrition and accomplishments it is because this video does a good job on two fronts. First, it shows how important nutrition is in the heirarchy of performance. Second, it shows how much impact our thoughts and words have in our lives and the accomplishmnets that we hope to achieve. Just as a good fitness base can crumble with bad nutrition so can your destiny with negative thoughts. Take the twinkies out of your cupboard and shed the twenty pound weight vest of negativity and you will feel the improvement!  

There's No Tellin' But Tomorrow Might Be Helen

This is an epic effort by James "OPT" Fitzgerald, an athlete out of Canada. If this doesn't get you fired up than you might have a cold shriveled heart that needs to be warmed up with 3 rounds of nastiness that won't necessarily heat up that heart but it will set those lungs on fire!
