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.

Sick Day WOD

*Today's WOD at CrossFit Camarillo (written by Casey Metoyer) was a nasty 7 minute sprint:
7 Min. AMRAP -
*3 x Deadlift (adv: 275/185, int: 135/95, beg: 95/65)
*4 x Box Over Jump (24/20)
*5 x Chin-Up

*I was sick with congestion, fever, sore throat yesterday afternoon and evening, so I just plain didn't have the "go all-out" mentality required for this WOD today.  Though my body wasn't capable of max effort, I wanted to get some quality work in...mainly because I need that for sanity.  I did the following workout below, instead:

10 Rounds -
*3 x Deadlift (185)
*4 x Box Over Jump (24)
*5 x Dead Hang Chin-Up

-I went for rounds instead of time today, so that I didn't feel the need to race.  I just went at a steady pace and finished in just over 11 minutes.  I also changed the Chin-Ups to dead hang, because I rely on my kip so heavily on a regular basis.  It is so important to constantly build strength in the lats, traps, pecs, rhomboids, biceps and triceps in order to maintain shoulder health and safety in kipping exercises.
