CF Total Schedule
We are not running our usual group class schedule today due to the Total. Instead come to 1 of the 3 following slots
Block 1: 9AM-10:30AM
Block 2: 10:30AM-12PM
Block 3: 12PM-1:30PM
Please arrive 15-20 minutes before your slot to complete whatever DIY warm-up you'd like so that we can promptly start with the movement standards and warm-up sets right at the designated time. In the interest of efficiency please come in with an idea of where you'd like to open each lift and what warm-up weights you intend to use to get there. For advice on how to approach the total please review Coach Fox's article on Preparing to 1 Rep.
**Teaser, Strength, and Foundations are at their regularly scheduled times.**
