Today’s Rest Day WOD is to write a CrossFit Haiku. Nothing like a fun little project to get the creative juices flowing. What’s a Haiku you ask? A Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry characterized by three simple lines. The first line contains 5 syllables, the second contains 7 and the last again contains 5. Think about images, emotions and experiences you have at the gym and see if you can’t write your own. Below are two examples courtesy of Mobility WOD
Like the lotus blossom
I just vomited
Way of the painball
There are no days off
Leopard is supple
Post Haiku to comments.
Speaking of Competitions..
The first event of the CrossFit Subway Series is just over a week away! Competitions like these are a great way to mix up your training environment and see how you do under a little more pressure. It doesn’t matter if you’re interested in competing at the affiliate team level or just a little competition-curious. Everyone is encouraged to come out and have some fun. Scaling options for all the workouts will be provided so that you can participate no matter what your level.
The CrossFit Games Are Here!
After months of waiting the Games are finally here. You can watch some of the best CrossFitters on the planet battle it out for the title of fittest on earth for free online here. One of the best parts of the Games is that the events are unknown until shortly before competition. This means we don’t know what kinds of grueling tests these athletes will be put through until this weekend. The only known variable is that the events will definitely be very.. very grueling.
