Travelers are always welcome at CFSBK.  Dominic here isn't a CrossFitter but he needed a place to Deadlift and do some kettlebell swings while in NY.  Patronizing a globo gym was out of the question, he needed a serious training facility. SBK to the rescue.

How was everyone's Thanksgiving?

"Lynne"

5 Rounds for max reps of
Bodyweight bench press (e.g., same amount on bar as you weigh)
Pull-ups

There  is no time component to this WOD.

Post reps to comments.
compare to 9.1.08

CrossFit rarely asks for maxes. This workout does and expects that there is no “gaming” the workout. At Brand X I tell people I want to see you falling off the pull up bar. People whose score looks like
10/30
8/25
8/20
8/20
7/15
are going for a number and not a max. Test your limits today.

Sunday morning at CrossFit South Brooklyn

CFNYC is moving this weekend and we're lucky enough to have inherited their flooring. (Thanks Mike) We're either going to use it to pad below our current flooring for enhanced noise insulation or we'll round out the matted area we have now.  If anyone wants to help us with the move Saturday afternoon after class it would be much appreciated. Please post in the comments section if you're interested!

Leonid takes on "The Bear"

Mobility Week 1
Once you have gone through this week's mobility moves twice with a coach it is your responsibility to perform the posted reps on your own either before or after class.  These movements can also be done at home and require no prior warm-up. This week's evercises are: Cat/Cow, T-Twists and Side Twists. Week one has an emphasis on "Spinal Flossing" which describes movements that increase neural function of the spine by freeing impinged nerves.  Remember that we're not looking for a lot of mobility in the spine so go easy on the end ranges of motion.  It should not feel like an intense stretch.
