Fight Gone Bad is always a fun event! Remember the scores to this one, everyone. You will see it again. It is a great conditioning benchmark to go back to. Please, start tracking your workouts so you can get a baseline for your improvements!


The look after the "championship rounds"


 Don't forget about our CrossFit Kids program:


I know that it is not always as convenient for the Mountain View crew, however, we have an awesome kids program in Santa Clara. In fact, they just got a huge shout out on the CrossFit main page. Look at the photo for today... www.crossfit.com


Weekend Schedule:


Please keep in mind that this weekend (Sat and Sun) our classes will be moved to our Mountain View location due to a Crossfit Certification taking place in Santa Clara.



Pull up pictures:




Does anyone notice the big difference between Josh (above) and Jason (below)???????


Josh is strong as hell, they both doing a pull up and are both at the top of the pull up. Please notice the hips. Can you see how Josh's hip angle is still closed off where as Jason's is fully open. The extension of the hip, is extremely important for efficiency.


Can Josh do 20 or 30 this way, absolutely. But his arm strength will burn out a lot faster than his hips will. Using your hips to generate momentum is key to all athletic movements. Tomorrow try and focus on using your hips and not just muscling up the pull up.
