Posted on November 20th, 2014 by thegymcf

We have some friends that many of you may know that have a daughter going through a battle in the hospital right now and I wanted to throw a shout out to them for their courage, incredible faith and positive attitudes. Reed and Mandy are wonderful people and parents. I have talked to both of them about their little girl Addie and the amount of faith and positive words that come out of their mouth is unreal. I could not imagine being in their shoes watching as their 3 year old is in a constant battle for her life.

Reed and Mandy, keep loving how you are and Addie will conquer her toughest battle that she will have to endure in her entire life. I am praying guys. Love yas.

Team Addie has a Facebook page if any of you all want to look it up.

To finish up I want to express how important it is that you follow the right volume of training. As you all know, our board has Silver, Gold , and RX lifts and WOD’s. These levels are merely a suggestion so that everyone has a level in which they can follow and strive for. Now, I would say the a majority of the people only scale to Gold or Silver because of the skill or load (weight) in certain WOD’s, this is OK. However, if you are bumping up your level to RX when we lift just because you see that there are less reps, you are wrong. More reps equal more volume which equals more practice and when you practice more you typically get better. Guys, more volume is needed to grow a bigger and more stable foundation. That is why the reps are always higher for Gold and Silver. Of course it sucks a little more to do 5 reps instead of 3 or 1 and no you cannot move as much weight doing that many reps, who cares. I have it written like that so you can build a bigger and more stable foundation. If you feel like you struggle technically then you need to do lighter loads and more repetitions. To be honest 60-75% of the people that follow this programming should be doing Gold lifts. We have about 85% of bloggers and whiteboard scores doing Gold WOD’s and I think that our lifting levels should come close to replicating that.

By The way if you are not recording your numbers and times on the blog your either a chicken shit or you want to remain anonymous. If you are chicken shit then un-chicken shit yourself and start recording, if you want to be anonymous then put in a fake name. recording is important.
