Plank Challenge


April’s challenge is a plank hold. This is something that is quick and easy to do. If you’re at work, at home or even traveling. Each day you will have to hold a plank and as the days go on the longer the plank holds! Goal is to go without breaking, but it is fine to break up the plank hold.

Endurance


Starting March 11th, its time to build up that endurance with Coach Wes!

Endurance will feature a warmup, skill and wod like CF classes but will focus on aerobic conditioning as opposed to Olympic lifting and/or gymnastic based workouts. Running, rowing, rucking, will be featured along with body weight exercises and occasionally barbell, kettlebell or dumbbell exercises. A focus on pace and speed for an individual’s run at various distances will be an objective.

Wednesdays at 6:30pm here at CrossFit Eagle Rock. Workout to take place at CFER. Possible runs around area or group travel to Oxy or Eagle Rock High School campus from CFER.

So just show up and increase your endurance! Familiarize yourself with running / rowing specific workouts. Learn how to control your breathing and pace during longer timed or distance workouts.
