I'm home! And I read a lot of the book about weight lifting on each of my 8 hour flights. I would like to encourage everyone to participate in the weight lifting program. Everyone needs to gain strength and this is the best way to get there. There are some of you that are worried about getting too buff. The way to do that is to do more reps at less weight. That is what some of you have chosen so as to not get too muscular, but it is the wrong method!

There is also a warm-up on the board from my workout session at CrossFit Groove in Romania. It was very fun and I'm excited to share it with you! For those of you that are doing the weight lifting, you should not do the warm-up on those days. You should Run 400 meters or Row 500 meters then immediately start the weight lifting warm-up with the empty bar. For the days there isn't a weight lifting wod that warm-up is for you!
