If you use MBO you'll also have to remember to sign in on the computer in class so that your account can be credited with the sessions you use up.  Please make this the very first thing you do when you walk in the door from now on.

Congratulations Team NorCal
So the results are in and it seems that we've been bested in our first CFSBK vs. CF NorCal monthly challenge.  Both teams put up some great times but NorCal pulled ahead with some super impressive numbers.  Needless to say we had a lot of fun but are now focused on next month's Squat Off! Thanks again to everyone who participated on both coasts.

Next Month's Challenge vs. CF NorCal:

Back Squat 1-1-1

Let's see which gym can move the most weight with three attempts at a 1RM! Individual bests and a group total will all count for the prize of strongest gym in the world! (Or at least the gym with the highest squat totals, between the two of us..)

"Jackie" Tournament Details
Our "Jackie" competition versus CrossFit Norcal is coming up this weekend.  The event is as follows:

1000m Row
50 Thusters, 45lbs
30 Pull-ups

We're going to Rank and compare the following categories against each gym:

Top 3 men and women Rx'd
Top 3 men and women Scaled
Top 20 times overall, favoring rx'd scores over scaled

We've standardized the scaling options to a 35lb barbell and jumping pull-ups for people who cannot do the movements rx'd. Classes will run as usual with "Jackie" being the posted WOD for the day.  Feel free to come in early or stay late to cheer people on.  This is a deceptively tough workout and requires a Lot of stamina and endurance, those of you who took on the 1K row last Monday have a better idea of what to expect.

Do you have a "Jackie" game plan?
