Cheers to 2020!

2019 was an amazing year; we opened a new home, had hundreds of amazing workouts, and welcomed lots of new faces to our Arsenal Family!

Some of my favorites include getting to have 2 opens this year, our annual pride tailgate, HalloWOD, numerous specialty courses and nutrition challenges, and of course Murph!

I’ve been fortunate enough to sit down with some of you prior to the new year to talk goals and what lies ahead for 2020. (If you haven’t it’s not too late, click here!) Listening and coming up with how to make these goals a reality has me so fired up for this year and all of the gainz to be had!

Through the goal-setting sessions I have had along with lots of conversations with Brooks, we realized that there is a need for extra strength work, conditioning, gymnastic skill work, and mobility. With that being said, We are happy to announce that we will be adding additional programming to any members interested in getting specific work to target weaknesses. The additional work will vary each day and line up with our regular programming so you aren’t working the same body parts back to back and the mobility will be specific to be done post-class WOD. The whiteboard in the open gym space will be filled with the additional programming that you can pick and choose depending on your specific goals. This will take full effect once the new boot camp space is ready!

Here’s a full breakdown of what to expect.
Pre and Post WOD Mobility-
Each day there will be pre and post WOD mobility specifically targeted towards whatever we are working on that day. Give yourself ~10 minutes before and/or after class to complete these.

Conditioning Work-
If you are looking to improve your endurance this year, throwing in additional conditioning before or after class could be just what you need. Each day there will be intervals on the bike/rower/running/etc or a conditioning focused Metcon. This can be done before or after class depending on your schedule, give yourself 20-30 minutes to complete.

Strength Cycles-
Each week we will have various strength pieces and accessory based strength work that will improve all major lifts (Squats, Deadlifts, Presses, etc.) This extra work will directly correlate with our classes so that you aren’t working the same movements back to back. Depending on how much time you have, all or some of the work can be completed.

Skill work-
Gymnastics can be a tricky part for most in the CrossFit world. Each day there will be something specific to work on whether it is strength work to get your first pull-up or fine-tuning your T2B.
