Today we returned to CrossFit Iron Industry! We had so much fun last time that we just had to go again. We started out with different ladder hops, working on mobility and reflex.
Once we were all warmed up we got our stretch on, getting limbered up is important before activity!
Next, Josh taught us rolling techniques on the floor. This is an important skill in everyday life, getting out of bed, out of the car or up from the floor after sitting or falling. Learning how to fall also helps us safely navigate our life, and teaches us muscle memory for maintaining these skills. “When you roll, you’ve gotta be safe” says Two Lincoln One. Jalapeño Superhero said “Rolling is good for when you get out of bed, very very carefully when you sit up.”
After getting down it was time to get UP! Josh taught us progressions for rope climbing. We first lowered ourselves to the ground with the rope, and then climbed back up to standing. The next step was holding ourselves off the ground on the rope, helping us build up muscles for climbing. “When stuck in a swamp or quicksand, you could use this to climb out of there!” said Rock & Roll Dude.
We finished off the day with Musical Chairs with a twist! Using medicine balls, we raced in circles grabbing the first ball when the music stopped. We practiced low squats by sitting on the balls. “We like that gym, I want to go back again. I like that gym” said Jalapeño Super Hero!
”I liked the running and jumping on the ladder, jump jumpy jump like a kangaroo” said Turkey.
It’s safe to say we will be back again! Thank You Josh and everyone at CrossFit Iron Industry!
