LFPB Challenge Capacity Test WOD: “Jackie”
50 Thrusters 45#
This classic benchmark (and CFSBK Leaderboard item) should hurt a bit and is very much about how much you want to push it. Baller status for doing all the reps all unbroken. Try to keep the bar on your body for all 50 Thrusters . NO BAILING THE EMPTY BARS! If you think you’ll bail, then set up a lighter bar with bumps on it. Resting the bar on your back is allowed. You should be able to complete at least 20 Thrusters unbroken when fresh at the Rx’d load, scale as needed. Scaling for for Pull-Ups today is Jumping or Ring Rows. For the LFPB Challenge, note your score and scaling to compare to your test from the beginning of the Challenge

Farewell to Coach Melissa
By David Osorio
As many of you know by now, Coach Melissa will be leaving CFSBK at the end of this month. She and Alex were presented with an opportunity to purchase Bell City CrossFit in Connecticut, where Melo grew up. We are saddened by her departure from our community but excited for what will no doubt be an incredible new chapter in her and Alex’s life. Melo has been coaching at CFSBK since 2012, and on top of getting her DPT and starting a family, she’s also responsible for launching our Diapers & Dumbbells program. Melo has left a huge impact on CFSBK and touched so many people in her time here. We wish her the best and want her to know she always has an extended CrossFit family back in Brooklyn.
Melo’s last group classes will be on Saturday, March 31st. The final farewell party/drinks for Melo, Alex, and Lily will be Saturday at 4pm at Pig Beach on Union St. All are welcomed!
We’ll miss you, Melo!!! Let’s show her some love in today’s comments!
