11.14 - 11.20

Congrats on another outstanding strength cycle and great week of training, team. This week, we deload from strength but continue our push on challenging metcons with a “Time Machine CrossFit Games Remix Week.” Several of our workouts this week come from the WODs of the nascent CrossFit Games. The sport has come a long way since the early days. See how you stack up against some of the world’s elite athletes from “the early days.”

Enjoy the small reprieve from strength and truly spend some time recovering this week when possible. Roll out, stretch after workouts, eat right and get to sleep at a reasonable hour. All of the small things add up to big progress and peak performance when you are focused and patient. Deloading from strength is a critical component to long-term success. Ignore the inclination to “do more” strength work this week.  Percentages go down on the strength movements throughout the week.

This Saturday is this year’s Turkey Bowl just a few short minutes from Unbeaten. Coach Alex vs. Coach Gnerre in a duel for the ages! Sign up on the board at Unbeaten to reserve your spot on one of the teams. Spots are limited.
