Where Science Meets Fitness

No matter what your current fitness level or former athletic experience, you can learn to train like an Olympic-caliber athlete. I am Erin Borchard, a former elite springboard/platform diver (NCAA Champion and multi-year All-American at Stanford University, former member of the US National Diving Team, and two-time competitor at the US Olympic Team Trials), specializing in personal and small group training sessions. I am also a Phi Beta Kappa student with a B.A. in Human Biology; my strong science background is an ever present influence shaping and changing my training philosophy.

I want to help you push yourself to YOUR maximum...you'll be shocked to find the true athlete living inside of you.

Regionals 2013 Workout #4

*Try this one today...CrossFit Regionals 2013 Workout #4:

(Workout is done with one barbell; have bumper plates nearby for a quick switch of plates  when weight changes)
50 x Back Squat (135/95) (NOTE: (135/95) indicates prescribed weight form (MEN/WOMEN), so I used 95 lb.)
40 x Pull-Up
30 x Shoulder-to-Overhead (135/95)
50 x Front Squat (85/65)
40 x Pull-Up
30 x Shoulder-to-Overhead (85/65)
50 x Overhead Squat (65/45)(oops! I mistakenly did these at 65 lbs.)
40 x Pull-Up
30 x Shoulder-to-Overhead (65/45)

*I have had a very big week physically, so I took this one slowly today.  Rather than focusing on my time, I chose to focus on form, set a steady pace of work, and set and achieve unbroken rep goals.  This one took me 26:44 Rx to complete.
