Power Clean and Push Jerk
Every minute on the minute x 15:
2 Power Clean and Push Jerks
These will add up quickly, so start modest on the load and only increase if the reps feel crisp. Do them touch-and-go if you can organize them. Do quick bailed singles if you cannot.

Exposure 7 of 8
50 Thrusters, 45 lbs
This classic benchmark (and CFSBK Leaderboard item) should hurt a bit and is all about how much you want to push it. Baller status for doing the reps all unbroken. Try to keep the bar on your body for all 50 reps. NO BAILING THE EMPTY BARS! If you think you'll bail, then set up a lighter bar with bumps on it. Resting the bar on your back is allowed. Standard scaling options for Pull-Ups: volume, Jumping Chest-to-Bar, DIY bands, or Ring Rows.

Short Circuit: Reprogram Your Body!™
CrossFit South Brooklyn is thrilled to announce Short Circuit, a new class utilizing some of the best training methods to give you a great total body workout in just one hour. Each class includes two circuits programmed specifically to help you shed pounds while increasing your strength, stamina, and flexibility. At Short Circuit, we want you to get sweaty, have fun, and build confidence, one workout at a time. We create an inclusive space where people can feel comfortable exactly where they are in their fitness journeys and, more importantly, challenge themselves to get better. Our instructors have worked with clients in every age group, with every body type, and across all ability levels. We want to show you that you're capable of much more than you thought! This is our passion. This is our goal.
Each Short Circuit class consists of 4 segments:
We start classes with a comprehensive, dynamic warm-up programmed to get your body ready for exercise while practicing skills and positions relevant to the day's class.
1st Circuit (strength/stamina)
The 1st Circuit focuses on your strength and stamina by using 3-4 exercises done in sequence for 15-20 minutes. We use dumbbell, kettlebell, and bodyweight exercises programmed to keep your muscles strong and toned.
2nd Circuit (conditioning, intervals)
Here's where things heat up! We'll use a variety of high-intensity intervals to bump up your heart rate up and really make you sweat. Whether you're on the rowing machine, swinging a kettlebell, or doing some Burpees, you'll get your endorphins pumping with our higher intensity circuit.
Finally, we finish with some extra core and flexibility work before sending you off to take on the rest of your day. You'll be recharged and ready to go!
What if I can't do something?
Every movement we teach and perform will have a variety of scaling options, so you’ll be challenged whether you’re flying through a set of 10 Push-Ups or still working on your first one. Our seasoned coaches can modify your workouts specifically for your abilities all while motivating you to do your best and to go a little further, faster, longer than you thought possible. We are here to help everyone achieve their goals, one drop of sweat at a time! No experience is required to take a Short Circuit class. Just show up and get fit!
Ok, so wait, is this CrossFit?
Not really! While we will offer CFSBK members a 15% discount on Short Circuit punchcards, this class is ideal for your friends and family who want to get fitter but perhaps aren't quite ready to take the plunge into the world of WODs and AMRAPs and barbells. In short, please spread the word!
Class Cap: We will limit our class size to 15 people to ensure that every member gets individual attention and there is plenty of equipment to go around. RSVP will required to attend each class.
