Exposure 8 of 8
3 Rounds For Time:
30 Russian Kettlebell Swings 32/24kg
15 Overhead Squats 95/65
The Swings should be on the heavy side, unbroken on the fast end but consider breaking them up to maintain consistent splits throughout. The Overhead Squats should be on the light-medium side for you and done in 1-2 sets.

Behind the Desk: Aileen H.
For the past few weeks, we’ve been bringing you new installments of our Behind the Desk series, about our beloved and much appreciated front desk staff! These CrossFitters take care of the important duties of checking in our members, handling walk-ins, tidying up after classes, and so many other things that it would take forever to list them. They are the glue that holds this gym together.
