Bottom Pic: Because he bought me breakfast at Denny's today.....we feature EZ Street Snatch dancing with 75 reps and 75 lbs. Tell me folks.....is this Strength training or Cardio training? Yep, good work. It is both.
If you are not at Crossfitter....we do not suggest that you try this at your gym.
BBQ at Heather's for CFE athletes and their loved "one". Heather has attack Ferrets that do not do well with small children and swallow dogs whole....so please no small children or animals this time......for their own safety. This afternoon. Be there.

The Monthly Monster at CFE is officially:
As with all CFE WOD's you are encouraged, supported, cheered and revered as wise if you scale to suit your fitness and strength levels. This is a big chipper and requires a desire to have a big and exhausting workout. Choose your day, and we'll help you get going and cheer you along the way.

Our good gym mate Jesse, has crafted, with a little input from some of you, a Monthly Monster workout. You can pick a day and choose to do this as the WOD instead of the group WOD that day, with the full support of Coach Mark.
The idea here is to test ourselves against a daunting workout. A workout that seems like it can't be done or because of the loads or reps intimidates us is the one that gives the best test. We cannot nor should we, take on a workout of this scope very often. Monthly is plenty. You are posting your time voluntarily but we would appreciate seeing who has attempted it. This will encourage the other athletes at CFE to take on big WODs.
All WODs need tweaking. None are perfect although I attempt to give them an intelligent rhythm, flow, stimulus focus and congruency that will get you stronger faster. The Monster will be less controllable because of the shear volume of work to be done so grit your teeth and get after it.
There is no hierarchy at CFE. All athletes have the same value and are esteemed equally. Attempting the Monster will be up to you. Your motives and reasons are yours and none of our business. Your time is yours as well as your effort.
As always with Crossfit, give it your best and your best efforts will give you the best results. That's it. Simple.
