The primary focus of this challenge will be mobility for me. I received my CrossFit Mobility certificate just over a year ago and I figure it's time I actually start employing what I learned...at least what's left in my memory/notes of what I learned. I'll also be starting a coaching internship at a local CF box in a couple of weeks and I want to be able to employ this stuff. Better refresh on myself before I start teaching others.

 

On that note, mobility work every day. Every. Day. Whether this be lacrosse balls, partner smashing, banded stretching, or standard stretching. I'd like to get in at least 15 minutes a day to start off.

 

Monies, I need them. Specifically, having just had a number of expenses, capped off with paying for an oly seminar with Dmitry Klokov that will be happening later this summer (yes, I will be excited for the duration of the summer), I need to stop spending money that I don't need to spend. No treats, no new music, no new fun things because I want them. Frugality is the name of the game.

 

Technique work. I want to work on butterfly pull-ups, muscle-ups, and double-unders. I will work on one of those three movements every day. If I can get my butterfly rhythm down by the end of the challenge, I'll be ecstatic. I'd also like to be able to consistently string together five double-unders. My goal of 20 last challenge may have been a bit unrealistic.

 

In summary, mobility, money, technique.

First week down:

 

Missed one day of mobility and was probably about 5 minutes short on another day. We'll say that was a B.

Did at least a little bit of muscle-up or double-under work every day (A).

 

Bought some dark chocolate-covered mango. Nutrition AND money fail, but since it was only one thing, we'll call that another B.
