Is anyone interested in participating in a design meeting at Lululemon next Tuesday from 7-8:30pm?  The intention of the meeting is to get feedback on what kind of athletic wear CrossFitters are looking for and let you guys know what Lululemon is all about. Ideally, there would be a mixed crowd of CrossFitters who wear the product already and some who don't.  Each member who participates will receive a $100 gift certificate to their store.  Food will also be provided at the meeting.
Space is limited and it's first come first serve.  Please email David(AT) if you're interested.

Our next cycle of focus lifts will be as follows:
Squat Variant: Overhead Squat
Pull: Deadlift
Upper Body:  Bench Press

If you can't Overhead Squat due to exisiting mobility limitations, high bar back squats will be performed instead.  Deadlifts will betaken from dead starts, lumbar flexion is considered a scale and a missed lift.

Please watch these videos on the Overhead Squat from
