Every 2 minutes for 12 Minutes (7 sets):
5 Touch-and-Go Power Snatch
Build to a max 5 rep set for the day.
Touch-and-Go is the goal of today’s Power Snatches, but don’t let that devolve into crappy form for the sake of hanging on to the bar. Scale reps and/or load to something you can handle well.

Exposure 5 of 8.
For Time, 21-15-9:
Push Press 95/65
Substitute Jumping Pull-Ups or Ring Rows for Pull-Ups so as to move through quickly. The intended stimulus today is a light-weight, fast workout. Scale accordingly.

Announcing Josh S. as Our New Managing Editor
By David Osorio
As we announced yesterday, long-time blog maven Kate R. will be moving to Montana for the next few months for a teaching position. (We’ll miss you, Kate!) We had plenty of awesome candidates who were interested in helping out with the blog and the rest of our written content, but Front Desker Josh S. really jumped out at us! Josh has been a CFSBKer for almost exactly three years now and is currently completing his PhD in English at the CUNY Graduate Center. He also teaches composition and American literature courses at Hunter College. When Josh isn’t teaching or working (out) at CFSBK, he’s probably chasing his pit bull Taco around, listening to music, or adding to his collection of knicknacks and old, weird postcards.

Next Thursday! Look Feel Perform Better Q&A Info Session: “Understanding Macros”
Attend this Look Feel Perform Better Q&A Info Session, the second of this year’s bi-monthly Q&A Info Sessions. These sessions will function more as a support group setting than a true lecture, though they will begin with a lecture. In this second session, we’ll discuss how counting and regulating your macronutrient intake will, in turn, control your caloric intake and optimize your training while maintaining lean muscle mass. An open Q&A will follow.
Where: CFSBK’s second floor Annex
When: Thursday, January 21st at 6:30pm
New Blog Feature: Yesterday’s Whiteboard
This week we started posting a pic of the previous day’s Daily Results Board (the one on the right side of 597) as the first entry in the links section at the end of each post. Dan L. was the first to notice in yesterday’s comments. Nice work, Dan! Our wonderful Front Desk staff will post the board to our Flickr account at the end of the day. We hope you’ll use this a training tool to track your progress, so be sure to write the results of your workout on the board at the end of class.
