Were you feeling really sore after 19.1? Did you find yourself saying something like "I haven't pushed that hard in a WOD in a long time!" Lots of us felt that way...and that's a problem! When you start CrossFit every workout is hard. They're all exhausting and they're all challenging with the new movements and the different ways you're challenging your body. That's what makes it work. Then along the way we get better. Pull ups aren't as hard, we string some double unders together, we started throwing around RX'd weights and we start to become at risk of losing that intensity. I'm not going to get into the nitty-gritty but INTENSITY is where all the results live. It's the hardship that

Great job to everyone on 19.1! It was a brutal WOD and everyone pushed hard to get the most out of it! Also, Congrats to MTM Friend, Joey Tortora, who's team qualified for the 2019 CrossFit Games this weekend! Finally, and most importantly, we're adding a service to MTM - SugarWOD. Go to the App store, download SugarWOD, select MTM CrossFit as your gym, and get to having an awesome time! SugarWOD does 2 main things: WOD tracking for you and a whiteboard for the gym. This means you will be able to keep track of your workout scores, lifts, PRs, etc right from your phone as well as see how others did throughout the day! Why the change? We're looking to add more and more to your workout expe

The Time is now, the Day is here. We're into the 2019 Open! The CrossFit Games, and by extension The Open, has always always had a fatal flaw: It's about finding the fittest on earth. That goal has nothing to do with being exciting, unique, fun, or a good show. It simply has to do with testing as many different variables as possible. As the Games grew somehow the events changed (especially on the team side) to be more spectacle and more show. Some are awesome like the various Swim and Bike events while others are down right painful to watch, like the 4hr marathon row snooze fest. This has left many many of us long term CrossFitters with a false sense of entitlement surrounding The Open -

Eva T was one of the original CrossFit badasses way way way back in the day along with being an Olympic Skier. The success Coach Glassman had training Eva T, and her improvement in skiing as a result of that training, was part of the original argument for CrossFit as an effective training methodology - and that those physical improvements would translate beyond t

Post Activation Potentiation (PAP) - Without getting too technical, the heavier you lift the more muscle your central nervous system has to recruit to lift it. Once the central nervous system is primed with a heavy weight it keeps firing muscles at the higher level for a period of time. We're going to take advantage of that over the next squat and bench cycles with drop sets. You'll warm up with 3-5 sets working up
