AMRAP 8 Minutes:

The "CP Battery Test" is a way to measure your ability to recover between sub-maximal reps of a relatively low skill movement with a relatively low eccentric load—in this case, the Power Clean. It can provide a way to measure necessary pacing on a WOD that involves heavy liftting.
4 sets, as heavy as possible:
200 ft Sandbag Carry
Bag must be held in front of the body, (i.e., in a bear hug). The goal is to carry as heavy as possible without placing the bag down. Rest as needed between attempts.

The Iron Maidens Raw Open: Thank You and Results
Thanks to all who competed, donated, and came out to cheer yesterday. The 2017 Iron Maidens Raw Open was an enormous success, thanks in no small part to our wonderful, supportive community. Congrats to Margie and Danae on organizing a first-class event, and many thanks to our volunteers, judges, and front desk staff for keeping everything running smoothly.
Iron Maidens competitors raised over $34,000 to fund the Stay Strong Scholarship, which will send women from Grace Outreach to college. This far surpasses our original fundraising goal of $30,000. Thanks to all of you who donated! There's still time to donate if you haven't had a chance!
Iron Maidens would like to thank our generous sponsors: Cafe Grumpy; lululemon; Left Bank restaurant; Sara June Salon; Twig Terrarium; Liddabit Sweets; Threes Brewing; Fleishers; Bhoomki; Ample Hills Creamery; Starting Strength; SSOC
