(E4/4) L1 5x3 Sets Across/L2 Max Effort

In order to accommodate for the final workout on Sunday, we're Deadlifting today.  If you pulled on Monday and at the previous Total, don't attempt another max. You've already gotten a recent heavy single so pull a 5x3 with moderate weight and perfect technique.

Row 2-3 five minute pieces on the Erg.  Your goal is to maintain a consistent split and stroke rating as accurately as you can for the entire piece. This emphasis here is not intensity, it's about control and technique. Choose a low stroke rating (18, 20 or 22) and drop :10-:15 each attempt. Coach Nick can help advice on choosing your split. Rest approximately 5 minutes between attempts.

Group Classes


If spinning class is the closest you've come to a group workout, then you've been missing out. At CrossFit South Brooklyn we've created an inclusive team atmosphere that makes training more fun and helps push each member to reach their full potential.  These daily classes are led by one of our Coaches and follow the posted workout of the day. We offer 36 Group classes every week. To view the full schedule, click here.

We also offer a scaled down version of our Group Classes called, On Ramp.  These biweekly classes are perfect for folks fresh out of Foundations or anyone who wants to spend more time learning to move better before they move faster.  To learn more about On Ramp, click here

All interested participants must complete either a Foundations cycle or 6 Private sessions before they may enter CrossFit Group or On Ramp classes.


The Foundations program is a twice-weekly 4 week course where athletes-in-training go to learn the elements of CrossFit. All the major lifts and movements will be taught from scratch with an emphasis on technical proficiency. These classes follow a group training format and can be scaled for your existing skill level. Basic homework assignments will also be assigned each cycle which will assist in your education and success within our Group Classes.
