It has been a big year in CrossFit for Chandler and before officially announcing her as our new CFM intern at the Hut… let me say happy CrossFit Malibu anniversary to her as of Nov 26, 2019- the day she attended her orientation session as a new athlete with us! Chandler completed her Elements Program before coming back to Malibu to begin her journey as a sports medicine student at Pepperdine.Then in 2020, she jumped right into classes and has completed 90 IN PERSON sessions, which doesn’t include the closure period WODs she did… so her dedication is obvious. In the fall, she too SPME 440- the course I teach in the sports med department- and not coincidentally- where we “found” Matthew, Maria, and Becca! It is an excellent proving grounds to avail one’s self as a leader and prospective CFM intern/coach. You will find Chandler assisting in classes (as of the beginning of the week), particularly in the 7am sessions as she facilitates your experience be helping with equipment distribution, relaying tasks from coach to athletes, as well as helping you with your movement and in understanding the WOD intentions. So, please help me welcome Chandler to our staff!
Thursday’s WOD at 7 and 9am, again at 4 and 5pm
For time complete:
50 sdhp (24/18kg KB)
30 push press (60/45kg)
Are you ready for an all out Sprint? Today, your run 800 m at a near sprint before getting in 50 sumo deadlift high pulls with a kettlebell in hopefully no more than three sets. You’ll then immediately move to your barbell for 30 push presses that you will hopefully complete in no more than five sets. Coaches will spend much time today before the work out ensuring that you have the correct scaling because in order to receive today’s stimulus, you’ll need each of the three movements to be tailored perfectly to you. Everyone should run unless prohibited due to orthopedics. A 1000 m row, 1.3 mile bike, or 800 m ski are the substitutions. You’re looking to complete all this in under 10 minutes.
