Motivation
Morgan started Junior High on Wednesday.  On Tuesday while in the van with the family Ryan said, “I want all the kids to go back to school.”  Sarah had a good laugh because she understood what Ryan meant.  At the time of the comment the kids were fighting over what movie they were going to watch when they got home.  This happened earlier in the day as well when the kids were picking something to watch.  Ryan had been upset that they weren’t gonna watch what she wanted to watch.  Sarah had told her that when the kids go back to school she will get to pick what she wants.  Ryan is a strong, confident, and smart little three year old.  Daniel had a good laugh when Sarah explained the comment.  Enjoy life’s little precious moments.
 
Workout Strategy
This workout is from CrossFit.com and is designed to be half the rep scheme done by 1 person.  I have made it a team workout because it will force you to take breaks.  You will still be doing the same amount of repetitions.  Your team time would be very close to your individual time because most of us would make the mistake of going to fast and not taking well timed breaks.  Even with a team this will take some strategy and planning.  It doesn’t really make sense for the strong person in the group to do large amounts of reps at a time because your partner will need the breaks.  If you finish your portion and then hand off the bar to your partner who then needs to take breaks then now no one will be doing work.  You want the bar moving as much as possible.  Example for the Press.  One partner does five reps, the stronger partner can do 10 straight and then the first partner could finish their other set of 5.  This plan does have a flaw since the weaker partner who just went will need a rest before starting the next movement.  The other strategy is to keep the sets to small numbers like five and transition quickly.  This will allow you to stay fresh without hitting failure and keep the bar moving constantly.  The stronger teams will transition between movements with a preplan like this.  After my last set of 5 Press, I will Immediately do 5 Overhead sqauts.  It’s a different movement so why not.   Have fun today.  Encourage your partner, communicate clearly, and stay positive.
