Our October Athlete of the Month is DJ Hundley.  DJ’s work ethic stands tall.  He’s dedicated, serious about his training, and disciplined in his approach to CrossFit.  His dedication has paid big dividends as he’s steadily moved up the gym leaderboard.  Initially DJ was reluctant to become athlete our athlete of the month because he’s didn’t want to occupy the limelight which in my opinion makes him perfect for the limelight!  At WCF we coach a wide range of athletes and it’s exciting to watch people come in who are tired of the same old workout come in, work hard, and perform at high level like DJ has.  Congrats and thank you for humbly being our October athlete of the month.

Here’s a little parody of CrossFit which fits well with today’s workout.  One of the foundational concepts of CrossFit is that intensity maximizes the rate of return of exercise.  So do this mean you should go as hard as you can every single time you train?  No.  In fact anaerobic adaptations are fairly equally distributed from 80%  to 100% exertion which brings us to days like today.  By Thursday you may be a little fatigued and sore from the week that’s passed.  One option is to take a rest day.  Another would be to come in and do today’s programming.  You can move at the pace that feels right and even if you went all out 10 250m rows won’t tax you for the next day.  So come in, have fun, and train at the right intensity for how you feel.

Hoody Update:  I got one design back and didn’t love it so I’ve sent it to the amazing Ashley Conway to put something way better together.  I’m also not the biggest fan of the color of the blanks so we’re going with that same style and then you can choose between that color or the one pictured below.  As soon as I get the design back I’ll put up a form for pre-orders.
