Congratulations to all of the athletes who competed in yesterdays Festivus Games here at F.I.T.  Thank you to all of our judges, volunteers, coaches, and athletes for everything you do.  Without you, there would be no F.I.T.  Nathan and I are grateful for everything you did and everything you do.

Come join us for Hero Sunday.  Where we honor those who have fallen through sweat and pain.  Today’s Hero is:

185 pound Front squat, 5 reps

How do you do a Ring Push Up?  We go back to the CrossFit Journal for a video on Ring Push Up positions.  This is the “teaser” video.  Have you subscribed to the Journal yet?  It’s time to get on it!  Today will also introduce you to www.gymnasticswod.com.  Another fantastic resource for movement in the CrossFit world.  Enjoy
