Meal of the Day

I love Crossfit Bishop. I am the kind of girl that isn't content with 30 minutes of "cardio" on a bike, or a step aerobics class. I like the full body burn, the opportunity to compete, and most of all the surprise that comes with doing something you didn't think you could do. Crossfit is the master at all of this. Crossfit breaks your body down so it can build back up into a better stronger one. It challenges your mind when you do three more reps than you thought possible. And it teaches your heart all you are capable of. Colin is a great instructor. I’ve never had a personal trainer but it is awesome having someone watching your form so closely, it makes you feel safe knowing that someone is looking out for you during challenging exercises so that you can push yourself a little further. Crossfit Bishop has got Colins intensity and attention to detail, Mollys inspiring fitness and kind spirit, a group of incredibly fun and fit people who are as psyched as you and an adorable baby too. Its certainly one of my favorite places to be in Bishop!!

Crossfit Works!  As a young buck, flush with time to get out in the mountains, I felt strongly that the best training for climbing and backcountry skiing was... climbing and backcountry skiing.  Now I'm by no means the busiest guy, nor do I have the most sedentary job, but I've felt the pinch of time in recent months.  I've spent many days over these busy months with Colin at Crossfit Bishop.   Colin energizes the classes, exudes knowledge and confidence, and successfully walks the fine line between motivation and all out pushing.  I just had my first opportunity in months to test my new Crossfitted bod'.  I can say that the total body training and the fresh, varied workouts make a huge difference!  The strength and endurance gains from Crossfit really shined on a recent one-day, monstrous exploratory ski tour in the High Sierra. I look forward to continuing to train and continuing to express strength gains.

I really appreciate all the dedication, knowledge, and energy you and Molly are so generous in giving. Your trained, focused attention and interest in supporting not only my fitness goals, but maximizing the quality of my performance, keeps me engaged and committed. It is inspiring to be around and has been a great catalyst fueling a new level in my health and fitness. It has always been a priority for me, but sometimes the conditions just have to be right to step up the quality and intensity. I suppose much like a CF workout...So, really, thanks. You guys are providing something very worthy to the Bishop community.

CrossFit is a different kind of fitness program that requires much more than gripping a bar and hammering out concentration curls. The complexity and variety of the movements, coupled with the intensity makes for a compelling system of improving one's physical and mental fitness. This is not accomplished without expert, careful, selfless coaching which Colin Broadwater provides.

4:45 crew!!!  Your class time is going to be reduced to three days per week.  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday will be the days to come and train in the wee hours of the morning...  Sorry for the adjustment, but we are finding that our ability to conduct a quality class that early is just too dang difficult over the long term.  We hope you understand.

Competitor crew!!!  We will be offering two specific times to get together on Saturdays.  The 8:00 class will follow our programming and we will also get as many of us together as possible at 6:00 pm.  A coach will be present as usual at the 8:00 am time, but the 6:00 hour will be completely self directed.  

For your Saturday training pleasure, you will be looking at...  Well, let's just say that a lot of squatting will be involved...

This guy, Ilya Ilyin is super fun to watch!  Incredible speed...  You may want to turn the volume down though!?


Deadlift, 5 reps at 75,85,95%
Set a PR if you are feeling good.  If not, get some good, challenging sets in and call it a day...
Between your heavier sets, take a good solid 5 minute rest.  Look at the clock and make yourself rest if it is truly heavy.  A two minute rest will not cut it, when you are working hard.  Five minutes may seem like a long time, but make yourself do it...

15 Unbroken Dumbbell or Kettelbell Thrusters
20 Walking lunges
15 Burpees

During warm up, spend some time drilling pistols and the muscle up transition.  Enjoy spending a little bit of time opening up the shoulders on the rings if you put the hammer down on Fran, or practice skin the cat variations if your are feeling fresh...
