Rx and Hydration

Some of you may have noticed that lately that we have started putting an Rx symbol by peoples name on the board after the workout. The Rx symbol stands for “as prescribed”.  To get the Rx by your name you must do the workout with the weights and reps that we put on the board.

Also to get the Rx you must go through with “Full Range of Motion”. Some examples of FRM is, when doing wall ball getting the ball above the line, not hitting the line,  and doing the full squat, or doing the jump and clap overhead when doing burpees.

I would rather see somebody have a slower time but do every rep with FRM, then have the best time on the board and only do the reps half assed. Don’t be offended if we don’t put an Rx by your name, just try to be better the next workout. To get a RX by your name the coaches are going to be very strict with your workout. Take it upon yourself to call a rep no good, we as coaches can’t watch everybody do every rep.

There has been a lot of talk around the gym about doing Crossfit Games next year. Those who are thinking about participating should defiantly start doing every workout and every movement Rx. I will write later about participating in CrossFit Games.

The next thing we need to talk about is “Hydration”. Last week many of you experienced what it’s going to be like in the gym this summer. It is going to be very warm in the gym, we are going to purchase some large fans to help move the air. It is going to be very important that people show up for their workouts well hydrated. Everybody should be pushing for a gallon of water per day.

We now have a small refrigerator in the gym that we have been putting the water bottles in. We are going to start charging $.25 for each bottle. We are not looking to make any money off the water, just basically cover the cost of the water.  And you don’t have to pay for each bottle every time you take one. There will be a can on top of the refrigerator for you to drop your money into when you have it.
