Demolition goes down today at 9:30a at our new space, 1457 Church Street! Come over anytime to help by getting in on the action (and bring your tools—especially the sledgehammers and crowbars), or just to check out our new digs!

Rest today.

***Important Announcement***
MPH will be closed from Monday, August 25 through Saturday, August 30, as well as the Labor Day holiday.

  • This will be important, prescribed rest for all of us, athletes and coaches, as there is no “off season” in our sport. Rest and recovery are essential to maintaining the mental and physical intensity required for long-term success. There will be no posted workouts during this time, and instead, a programmed break from all CrossFit activities.
  • We will resume a normal workout schedule on Tuesday, September 2.

This week, play a sport, hike, ride your bike and walk to work—nothing that resembles a workout. Turn off your watch, metronome and anything that counts or beeps—nothing that reminds you of the clock. Keep your hands clean of chalk and tears, and treat them repeatedly. Stretch, massage and roll. Sleep in. Leave work early. Eat well. Really well.

When we return, we dive into a fantastic fall of fun workouts, PR’s and community events, as well as preparations for our beautiful, new, significantly larger space!

Full range of motion in the squat allows us to experience the entire benefit of the movement by placing the greatest stress on the system per repetition. What are we looking for? Hip crease well below the knee. In other words, if we need a committee to determine if the rep counts, then it needs to be deeper! Dave R. (see above!) has very legit depth in his overhead squat.

Rest today.

Rest today.
