Farmer’s Carry / Gymnastics Complex
In 25 minutes, use a challenging load on the Farmer’s Carry and work up to a challenging rep scheme on the gymnastics complex:
A1) 200′ Single-Arm Farmer Carry (each)
A2) Gymnastics Complex: Toes-to-Bar + Chest-to-Bar Pull-Up + Bar Muscle-Up
For the gymnastics, first try to do one rep of each performed as a complex. If you can do that then, add volume and do 2 reps of each, and so on and so on. Baller status if you can perform a strict cycle on the complex! The goal is to stay on the bar and (relatively) seamlessly blend one movement into the next.
If you can’t yet perform the gymnastics movements then use the time work on your strength in each by performing a few low rep (1-4) sets of: Strict Toes-to-Bars/Hanging Leg or Knee Raises + Assisted Pull Ups, and Assisted Dips.

Hang Power Cleans 95/65
Push Jerks 95/65
Lateral Bar Burpees
Don’t let the lighter Rx’d load fool you. This one should be a sprint, and should burn a bit. Scale appropriately to achieve intensity and not become bogged down at any point.
Post time and Rx to comments.
Here are a few of our favorite things in one neat package: Coach David… in collaboration with our buds at Beyond the Whiteboard… on CrossFit HQ’s site. This is the first installment in a new Inside the Affiliate series that you can look forward to seeing in the coming weeks and months, and it’s about our Free Intro Class. Pop some popcorn and give it a watch!
Exhibit Your Work in the CFSBK Art Show!
Ever wonder what CFSBK would look like if it transformed into an art gallery? Well, those of us that participated in or attended CFSBK’s previous Art Shows know it looks pretty awesome. Our 5th Art Show will be Saturday, November 17th, and we need to know by Thursday, November 1st whether you want to participate.
The aim of the evening isn’t to sell the work of our artists (though if that happens, great!), but to showcase the often hidden talents of CrossFitters, bring our community together in a novel way, and to continue being the coolest CrossFit gym on the planet.
Want to Participate?
We’re excited about everyone who has reached out so far, but we want to hear from more of you. If you are an artist (even if your art is just a hobby) and a CrossFitter at CFSBK or beyond, reach out to Coach Brett at Brett [at] crossfitsouthbrooklyn.com by November 1st, 2018 to get on the roster of artists. If you haven’t participated before, your email MUST INCLUDE 2-3 images of pieces you would consider showing or pieces that are similar to what you would create for the show. The volume of responses we receive will determine how many of your pieces we can include.
Note: Several of you have asked if anyone can participate. Yes! But because we envision the show as an intersection of physical culture and the arts, the artist should be dedicated to fitness training (broadly conceived) in some way. They don’t have to work out at CFSBK.
The more diversity of mediums the better—painting, photography, film, collage, printmaking, dance, design, drawings, textiles, installations, or something we haven’t heard of yet.
