MAY ONLY THE BEST WIN

The CrossFit Games will begin this week and are a playing field where the fittest athletes are given a chance to distinguish themselves through consistently exceptional performances. In a single weekend, the CrossFit Games test athletes’ capabilities across broad time and modal domains. A wide variety of different events are intentionally included. In the past, these have ranged from dusty hill sprints to sandbag carries to ocean swims and endurance events. Future events will include even more surprises.

In order to be satisfied that the CrossFit Games winners are truly the Fittest on Earth™, we need to be confident the champions would also win other good tests of fitness.

CLEAN PULLS-As the bar approaches the mid-thigh position, begin extending through the hips. In a jumping motion, accelerate by extending the hips, knees, and ankles, using speed to move the bar upward. There should be no need to actively pull through the arms to accelerate the weight; at the end of the second pull, the body should be fully extended, leaning slightly back, with the arms still extended. Full extension should be violent and abrupt, and ensure that you do not prolong the extension for longer than necessary.

SKILL WORK: I often see people arrive for class 10-15 minutes early. This is a substantial amount of time in one’s day that can be filled with all kinds of things to make you a better person (besides lifting heavy weights, which automatically makes you a better person). I see many members use this time to mingle, roll out, etc., which is fantastic. However, I often see people unsure of what to do before class begins and hesitantly stand by the door, wishing they had not arrived so early. Let’s use this time to work on a skill. It is hard to get better at a skill, unless you practice it. Select one thing you want to improve at and do more of it!

Skills/Strength
5 Min Handstand Practice
WOD
25 min AMRAP with a partner
20 shoulder to overhead (95/65)
20 toes to bar
20 hang squat cleans (95/65)
