After the September 11th attacks on the US, Jeremy Wise joined the Navy and became a SEAL. Ben Wise, already in the Army, became a member of the legendary Green Berets. Beau Wise followed his brothers and joined the Marine Corps Infantry. Together they served over 1,600 days in Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragically Jeremy was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan on December 30, 2009. Just over two years later, Ben was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on January 10, 2012. Beau remained on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.
The workout was originally posted on threewisementribute.org, which has since joined Headstrong, "a national organization that provides post-9/11 veterans with cost-free, stigma-free and bureaucracy-free mental health care." We did this workout for a WODwell video back in 2015 and @jreither got 162 reps...re-tested in 2017 and got 169 reps. Tip: The movements get easier in each AMRAP, but the repetitions and heart rate get higher, so pace yourself so you can empty the tank in that last AMRAP. See the video from 2015:
💭 I've never been one of those people who are good at everything they do. We all know that one person who picks something up in the drop of a hat, and they are freakishly talented at everything they try in life.
While I have tried so many different things, I'm someone who's incredibly f*cking hard on themselves and I can't just do something for "pleasure". For someone who is so competitive, I've always been frustratingly average. I was an average gymnast. An average student. An average employee. I need to try really, really hard to be great at something. To be above average. To win.
I fail - a LOT. Powerlifting is the first thing in my entire life that I've given 100% effort. It's my sport, and it's my business that I'm incredibly thankful for. I'm not sure if it's from a series of personal life events and upbringing that has made me this way, but I think what I'm trying to say here is once you find something you're passionate about, it's going to require your energy in its entirety. You need to be relentless in your pursuit to be great.
In the end, I think grit trumps talent. If you're willing to relentlessly put in the work, great things will happen to you. Grit is a muscle, though. You need to train it.

O LPF (Low Pressure Fitness) é um programa de treinamento postural e respiratório. Como seu nome indica, é o "fitness da baixa pressão". ✔⠀
Os maus hábitos posturais e o sedentarismo provocam desequilíbrios e debilidades musculares que podem ocasionar vários problemas como: dores nas costas, hérnias, incontinência urinária etc. O LPF ajuda a prevenir e reabilitar estes problemas e é uma alternativa muito mais eficiente, segura e rápida à musculatura abdominal do que os convencionais abdominais. 💪⠀
Alguns benefícios que esse método proporciona:⠀
🔸Melhora da postura, dores na coluna e hérnias⠀
🔸Diminuição da circunferência abdominal⠀
🔸Diminuição da retenção de líquido⠀
🔸Melhora do tônus muscular⠀
O LPF acontece toda quarta-feira, às 20h30, no CrossFit Itatiba! Agende uma aula experimental através do WhatsApp (11) 99746-5068. 📲

🤹🏾♀️KIDS PROGRAM 🥇
We are excited to announce we are changing up the structure of our Kids/teens classes.
The new schedule will kick off from February 4th and be live for a 10 week term.
We are going to be changing the pricing structure to fit the school term also.
From now until then we will be hosting classes mondays and Wednesday's as usual and on normal payments.
We are hosting a parents info afternoon (kids can run wild) on Wednesday 30th of January at 4pm.
We will break down the new class structure and pricing structure and also have a live tutorial on booking classes for you guys and the kids.
Feel free to spread the word and if you have any friends that would like to come and try classes in the mean time it's being a friend month for January.
It would be amazing to have as many of you guys there as possible to make sure our kids program runs smoothly!
Let us know if there is anything you need covered or explained between Now and then.
Today’s #techniquetuesday comes to you in direct correlation to our WOD today. The push press: easy when done right, but potentially deadly after 90/63 calories on the bike, 63 pull-ups, and 9 power cleans before you even think about a push press. But we are here to simplify it for you so you can be more efficient during your WOD. It’s essentially a perfect mix between a push press and a jerk, hence the name push jerk.
With the bar resting on your shoulders, bend your knees slightly and sit your hips down and back. Imagine you’re in one of those gym fail videos where the subject does a 1/4 squat.
Next, “push your feet through the ground” as you generate momentum vertically. Almost as though you’re jumping without leaving the ground.
Here’s where it gets a little different. Instead of pushing the bar overhead, push yourself under the bar. Your arms will be fully locked out with a slight bend in your knees.
Rep is finished when you stand up. Remember these things and your WOD might just be a little easier than it would be if you don’t. •
What a perfect day to throw around some kettle bells and get your body moving in ways you didn’t think were possible 😝
