3 Shoulder Press, 5 Push Press, 7 Push Jerk x 5 Rounds. Start at a light weight- you complete the 3, then 5, then 7. As you get to larger loads, you should challenge yourself to the point of failing a shoulder or push press. At this point, just move on to the next press movement, for example, if you cannot shoulder press the weight anymore, move on to the 5 push press. Make sure you can at least get one shoulder press though.

100 Back Squats (95/65) for time, but on the top of every minute, the athlete must stop and complete 5 Box Jumps (24/20) before moving on.

800 meter Run OR Row, cool down pace, then roll out Back and Lats.

Yesterday I posted about the ability to maintain the body through “maintenance” just like you maintain your car.  Your body is a machine.  Maintain it and it works better.  Let it sit inactive or use it without maintaining it and it falls apart. Here is a list of movements that will help you maintain your lower body.  Kstar talks often about the importance of mobilizing the joint.  It must work because tens of thousands of people use these to stay mobile, including me!

We’ve changed the format of our CrossFit Technique classes |On Ramp Program.  The CrossFit On Ramp Program is a 3 hour introduction to CrossFit fundamentals.  The 3 hours are broken up into 3 days – Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights at 7pm.  Each Monday a new On Ramp class starts with each class “graduating” on Thursday.  In addition, we will be operating a 3 hour “On Ramp Weekend Program” one Weekend day per month for 3 straight hours.  Anyone wanting to try CrossFit for the first time needs to attend one of these classes or contact us for a Private On Ramp class.  These choices should make getting into CrossFit easy.  Contact a coach with any questions.  If you’ve had any friends who wanted to get started, please have them check out this program.

I’ve shown this video before, but I think it’s an excellent way to look at Knees to Elbow and Toes to Bar.  When doing high rep Toes to Bar, it’s very important to do knees to Elbow efficiently.
