2 Rounds for Time:
12 Thrusters 115/75
12 Power Snatches 115/75
12 Push Jerks 115/75
12 Hang Squat Cleans 115/75
12 Overhead Squats 115/75
In addition to the 120 Burpees, “Tommy Mac” involves 24 reps each of 5 different barbell lifts: Thrusters, Power Snatches, Push Jerks, Hang Squat Cleans, and Overhead Squats. The barbell weight should be a medium-heavy, manageable load, allowing each set of 12 do be done either unbroken or in 2-3 quick sets. The Power Snatches are the exception here, if you’re not great at cycling these, then quick singles is appropriate. Aim to keep moving through the Burpees at a steady pace.

That’s because CFSBK’s awesome coaches adhere to our Group Class Coaching Expectations, a document we developed based on 10 years of coaching experience. Here’s a preview of Captain Osorio talking to CrossFit Journal about one of those expectations—timeliness. With a CrossFit Journal subscription, you can watch the whole thing here
Sign Up for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at CFSBK!
Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is a full contact grappling style that prioritizes strategy over brute force. Literally translating to the soft or pliable (jiu) style (jitsu), it is often thought of as the chess of martial arts. BJJ is, at its, core a self-defense system that employs positional advantages, joint locks, and chokes to defend against an opponent or attacker in an assertive and elegant manner. You needn’t be stronger than your opponent to subdue them, making BJJ one of the most practical and effective martial arts for all ages and sizes. There is no striking in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. This is a submission grappling art based on efficiency of movement, leverage, and timing.
The Level 1 Cycle is your jiu-jitsu starter pack. The course is geared towards anyone intrigued by BJJ but unsure where to begin, anyone who wants to become better acquainted with dynamic movement on the ground, and anyone who could use a review to jump back into it.
In Level 2, we will build on concepts and vocabulary of movement from the various positions with a larger portion of class-time dedicated to progressive resistance drilling, positional sparring, and straight sparring. If you have grappling experience from the past, you are welcome to jump into the Level 2 course!
This will be a 4-week course with the option of taking 1 or 2 classes per week. Classes will cover the basic body mechanics and techniques used in jiu-jitsu. Come dressed in standard work out garb (leggings, spats, shorts that won’t fall off) and be advised that the sweat you leave with may not be your own. No zippers, no claws, no jewelry!
By the end of the course, you will be at the point where you can walk into a live-sparring jiu-jitsu class without reservation.
Level 1 (November 19th – December 11th)
Sundays, 3:30pm – 5pm
Mondays, 8:30pm – 10:00pm
Level 2 (November 19th – December 11th)
Sundays, 2:00pm – 3:30pm
1 class per week for 4 weeks: $90
