Rest Day

The South Brooklyn Standard 620m Run


If you were stuck on a desert island and could only bring one piece of equipment with you, what would it be? (Unfortunately, all the barbells and bumpers fell overboard too)


WOD 7.16.09

21-15-9 reps of
Mid Hang Power Clean or Snatch
Knees to Elbows

135 is Rx'd for the clean and 95 for the Snatch

Accessory Work
Bent Over DB Rows 3x12
1500m Pace Row
While keeping your stroke rating below 25, see if you can hold consistent splits dropping :10 every 300m. This pace row is less about intensity and more about control and technique.
For example:
0-300m 2:30pace / 300-600m 2:20 pace / 600-900m 2:10 pace / 900-1200 2:00 pace / 1200-1500 1:50 pace

Thanks to everyone for the thoughtful responses to yesterdays rest day question.  It's obvious there are many reasons why we stay fit beyond the mental and physical benefits.  I think success with CrossFit requires dedication, integrity and a strong sense of personal responsibility.  These traits are common in our athletes and responsible for the strength of our community.

CrossFit Virtuosity finally gets a home all it's own.  Congratulations Keith, Sam and everyone else from the CFV Crew. Keep your eyes peeled everyone, this program is gonna spread like wild fire.


Rest Day

AJ cools down on the Erg

Remember that on August 1st Tushar is hosting a CrossFit Movie screening at his apartment.  Please email David(at) if you are interested in attending.  It will be an informal potluck, beer and paleo snacks would be appreciated.

Please remember that even if you're registered with Mind Body Online, you must still sign into the book every day before class.

Do you have someone or something in your life that specifically motivates you to be more fit?

Christine (FGB Style)

In this version of Christine, athletes will work in teams of 3.  Athletes will go for max reps in 1 minute at each station.  After the completion of all three stations there will be 1 minute of rest.  This cycle will repeated for a total of 3 rounds.  The stations are:
1. Row (for calories)
2. Deadlift (135#/65#)
3. Box Jumps

Post individual & team reps to comments.

Accessory Work:
When was the last time you worked an L-sit or Ring Support?  Don't remember?  Well, bust out the parallettes and/or grab a set of rings.  Hit 2 or 3 minutes (cumulative) in an L-sit or Ring Support.
