Active Recovery with Coach Fox is back!  Moving forward, A/R will be meeting every Tuesday evening at 6pm.  Could your body use a little A/R TLC after the holiday weekend? 

What is JacintoStorm?

For the past two years we've been honoring Jacinto with an annual birthday WOD named, "JacintoStorm".  Each year one rep is added to commemorate the number of years Jacinto has been kicking ass.  This year marks the 71st anniversary of full frontal awesome by Jacinto and we'd love for you to come and celebrate it with us.

Sunday, July 11th from 9am-12pm. If you'd like to WOD, please arrive before 10:15am.  We'll start sending off heats at 9:30am.


Not only will we be working out, we'll be grilling too!  Bring your favorite side dish (paleo-friendly) or choice refreshment. 

The Workout:
This year's "JacintoStorm" is as follows:

For time:
Run 570 meters
71 Squats
71 Push-Ups
Pull-ups or Ring Rows
71 Wall Ball Shots, 20/14
Kettlebell Swings 1.5p/1p
71 Deadlifts 95/65
Run 570 meters

As always, multiple scaling options will be provided so that everyone can participate. 

If you're coming and not a regular at CrossFit South Brooklyn, please email David(AT) so that we know to expect you.

World Class Fitness in 100 Words
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
~Greg Glassman,  CrossFit Founder
