Notes: Competitors prepping for any upcoming competitions are encouraged to perform the heaviest Hang Squat Cleans they can without being forced to drop any reps, unbroken if possible. If the weight is too heavy to manage no dropping we may have to set-up outside and drop on the pavement. DB Burpee Squat Cleans may be performed as one smooth movement or as a Burpee/Deadlift/Hang Clean/Front Squat complex as long as the weights do not return to the ground between the repetitions. Listen to your coaches/trainers/experienced peers insight and ensure if you are scaling that you are choosing wisely. A great WOD for a novice CrossFitter a few months in might entail just cutting the sit-up reps in half, intensity and pushing your own limits falls squarely on the athlete; it matters not how 'sexy' the wod looks on the board next to your name or if you have the heaviest weight anyone's ever lifted for a particular movement. All Glory Is Fleeting. That being said, get some freaks...

Subbing heavy barbell Hang Squat Cleans would be ideal for those preparing for the Games or just looking for an extra kick. Unfortunately we are still held to not dropping weights until we get into the new space so the weight selected needs to either be something the athlete can accomplish without dropping, no exceptions, or perhaps we could get a set-up in the loading dock area where Steve actually brought up on his own that he doesn't have issue with us training there. As the weather gets nicer we ideally could just take all our stuff outside and run a quick mod workout for those interested and not worry about dropping the weights on the pavement.
Thanks to everyone for hanging in there as I continue to work through the issues currently putting a bit of a damper on our training options... it's almost over and when it is all will absolutely be worth it.
Miss you freaks, see you sporadically over the next few days, KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!

This would also be a great day to work on the 'farmers carry' task that awaits in regionals. One lap around the building in as few sets as possible? Hell, I'll do that one with you sounds horrible...

The best part of this pic is the kids looking horribly puzzled or terrified.
