3 Rounds for Time:
30 Russian Kettlebell Swings 72/53#
15 Handstand Push-Ups
For today’s workout, you can opt to kip the HSPUs if you’d like, however you must display control through your range-of-motion. If you can get through the workout in under 10 minutes going strict, opt for that. The substitution for HSPUs are Dumbbell Push Presses at around 45% body weight.

Olympic Weightlifting Cycle Mock Meet Tomorrow
Tomorrow at 2:30pm you’re invited to see some of Frank’s Olympic Lifting Program athletes test themselves in a mock Oly meet. If you’ve been to Coach Jeremy’s CrossFit Totals at the end of each cycle, this event is essentially its weightlifting equivalent. Each lifter will have three attempts at the snatch and clean and jerk.
The new Oly cycle will start on Monday the 12th and will follow the same schedule as previous versions. Registration links will be up tomorrow.
