Ring holds were spicy!
Made it through 6x :30 unbroken
Wod: I knew this would be a challenging workout this morning. Woke up around 3am, and couldn’t fall back asleep (caffeine too late) until about 4am. Dang.
Went RX thanks to Joy, but I kept it a consistent 3:00/round— resting ~:10. Finally, picked up the pace the last 1:30.
StrongFit! Highlights include sandbag over the yoke (in 1 min: 12 reps at 80#, 10? reps at 100#) and power clean and jerk doubles with the axel bar up to 125.
Group class: 5 x 30 sec holds. These started pretty zen, but last two definitely a but spicy.
WOD: 8 rounds + 29 reps Rx.
Just kept moving. Tried to go right into the SDHP after the burpees each time, then take an extra beat to rest before front squats. It basically just felt like I was doing burpees the entire time – which is halfway true.
Excited for the Art Show this evening – always a really chill evening when I am incredibly impressed by the talented individuals of our fitness community.
30 Seconds x 5-8 Sets
Rest as needed between sets but no more than 2 minutes. Focus on a perfect position (shoulders away from ears, elbows locked out, hollow body) atop the rings. Scale time as needed. You can also scale to a more stable set up using a band held across the rings or the Matador.
Post work to comments.
AMRAP 18 Minutes:
9 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls 95/65
12 Front Squats 95/65
The Sumo Deadlift High Pulls should be a little heavier than your Fight Gone Bad weight, maybe unbroken throughout. The Front Squats come off the floor, NOT via a weird Clean after the 9th Sumo Deadlift High Pull, and should be completed unbroken as well.
Post rounds, reps, and Rx to comments.

We could still use some volunteers to help set up and break down. Contact Coach Brett at Brett [at] CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com if you’d like to help make the magic happen.
