Programming Note:
We've been really happy with the progress everyone's been making on their Power Snatches.  We'd like not to lose momentum on all this technique building so the "Pull" variant on our next cycle will be Power Snatches again.  Please remember to put your training in perspective and make conservative jumps.

Rest Day

Hammer
Congratulations to John "The Hammer" Mc-D for taking first place in the Coxwain Division at CRASH-B's this weekend
The hammer John was awarded represents being a strong rower with a tough-as-nails mentality. 

Check out the rest of the amazing CRASH B Photo set Dan R took!

Tonight's Workouts

6pm Dips/Rope Climb
7pm Snatch/Annie

Our next Mobility and Recovery Intensive is just around the corner!
For many athletes, mobility and soft tissue restrictions are one of the biggest barriers to performance and reasons for injury.   While you won't put a clock to it, everyone should be attacking their body work with the same intensity they attack WODs with.  Our MRI is designed to give you guys the tools to do personalized movement prep work before and after workouts.  Plus, you leave with your own Foam Roller and Soft Tissue Ball!

Get all the details here or register here

"The diagnostics were great. They put me in touch with mobility issues I never really knew I had.  Learning the ways to cope with those issues was huge...I'd take it again." - Chris A

Congratulations to everyone who competed at CRASH-B's yesterday.  A big thank you to Coach Nick for all the time and effort he put into preparing our team for the event.  Coach Nick has had a huge influence on our community and training since he's started with us and we couldn't have done this without him.  Thanks also to Dan R and Asta F for taking pictures and everyone who came out to support our athletes.
