Every Minute x 15:
Mid-Hang Power Clean + Power Clean
Lots of reps with a short turn-around time today. Keep the weight medium-heavy and focus on an aggressive 2nd pull and, even though these are Power Cleans, pulling under the bar with consistent footwork.

The weights should be medium-heavy for you and manageable. Some beasts might do this unbroken, but breaking the larger sets up into 2-3 quick sets is appropriate. Don’t let the approachable Rx fool you. Scale the load so that you’re moving pretty consistently and not taking long breaks between sets.

Fight Gone Bad Fundraising Update
So far we’ve raised Over $6,000 for Brooklyn Community Foundation, which is around 25% of our goal! Ziggy WODdust and the Squatters from Mars have surged into first place with Foam Roller Derby not far behind. So far, Charles S. is our top individual fundraiser. We’re off to a great start, but there’s still a lot more work to be done. Onward, FGBers!
From Brooklyn Community Foundation, here are a few local initiatives that your fundraising will help to sustain:
- “INVEST IN YOUTH – Invest in Youth is our 10-year, $25 million commitment to improving social and economic opportunities and outcomes for 16- to 24-year-olds, especially young people of color. In 2016, we invested $2.3 million through a unique set of programs including $1,915,000 to 60 youth-serving nonprofits from our Invest in Youth Grant Program as well a significant investment in a new restorative justice model for Brooklyn schools via our Brooklyn Restorative Justice Project. Our Brooklyn Youth Fellowship also entered its exciting second year, and we’ve seen our increased advocacy efforts lead to policy changes at the city and state levels.”
- “IMMIGRANT RIGHTS FUND – We created the Fund in the weeks after the 2016 Presidential Election to build a boroughwide response to unjust government policy changes threatening Brooklyn’s immigrants and their families—including increased deportations, criminalization, and discrimination. We have committed a minimum of $1 million over the next four years to support local organizations as they take on both immediate and long-term needs in Brooklyn, from legal assistance, community safety, and social services to advocacy, organizing, and leadership development. To date, we have awarded nearly $250,000 to 22 organizations across Brooklyn.”
- “BROOKLYN RESTORATIVE JUSTICE PROJECT – We designed the Brooklyn Restorative Justice Project to create a racially just model for school discipline built upon the principles of restorative justice, which focus on repairing harm and building safe and respectful communities, rather than removing children from the classroom and pushing them into the criminal justice system. Working in partnership with NYC Department of Education and the Mayor’s Leadership Team on School Climate and Discipline, we have committed $1.8 million over four years (2015-2019) to support restorative justice implementation in four Brooklyn schools—three high schools and one middle school—as well as a comprehensive academic evaluation to develop shared learnings from the process.”
We’re still looking for donations from sponsors to give away as prizes on the day of the event. Please contact our Events Coordinator Danae at Events [at] CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com with your treasures.
