Saturday 11/24

Hope
Three rounds of:
Burpees
Power snatch 75/55
Box jump 24/20
Thruster 75/55
Chest to bar Pull-ups

“Hope” has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of “rotate,” the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.


We hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving with lots of relaxation and good food. But now it’s time to get back to business. Thanksgiving kicks off the season of holiday parties and people at work who think they are being super thoughtful for bringing is four dozen Christmas tree shaped cookies or a 2-pound box of See’s candy. I’m not going to tell you not to eat those things, but don’t use having a cookie as an excuse to eat everything in sight. All too often it’s easy to have a “what the hell” mentality towards tempting food. As in, I’ve already had two cookies so my goal of eating good food is blown. What the hell, might as well polish off a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.

Resisting holiday temptations isn’t always easy, however it is much harder to get back on the real food wagon when you’ve jumped off of it so long ago that it is no longer in sight. Whatever you do, don’t give yourself the holidays “off.” And if you have some well intentioned co-worker or family member trying to talk you into eating any of this festive poison, just remember that they don’t have to do “Hope,” or any of the other WODs coming up this month.
