Register for Anti-Gravity Strength
Struggling with your Pull-Ups? Stuck at the bottom of your Handstand Push-Up? Or do you just want to be able to do some badass weighted Chins? A new cycle Coach Arturo‘s popular Anti-Gravity Strength class starts Saturday, March 9th. This class always sells out, so get on it!
Each AG Strength class will be an hour-and-a-half long, focusing on the strength and skills needed to improve Pull-Ups and Handstand Push-Ups. This will include a variety of skill exercises, progressions, weighted and strict practice, and other techniques to teach, develop, and perfect your Pull-Up and Handstand Push-Up. This fundamental strength work will carry over into other CrossFit gymnastics movements, including the coveted Muscle-Up. The class meets 2 times per week for 8 weeks according to the schedule below.
Saturday, March 9th to Saturday, May 4th Tuesdays from 6pm to 7:30pm Saturdays from 11am to 12:30pm
Cost and Eligibility
The cost is $160 per month ($320 total plus NY sales tax). This cycle is open to all CFSBK members as well as CrossFitters from other affiliates.
What Happens in a Class?
The first class will begin with an assessment of each individual’s upper body push, pull, and core strength. Once the assessment is completed, each AG Strength class will consist of skill work, strength development, and flexibility training based on your personal needs, weaknesses, and strengths. If a member chooses to do a CrossFit group class on the same day, we recommend doing the skill and strength work from the AG Strength cycle first. Arturo can advise you on this on a case by case basis. Just ask!

Boom. Nicely done.
Rob Underwood says
Congrats to everyone on 19.2. Awesome stuff.
OT: “what’s the best show to watch on streaming right now?” or something similar was asked recent as QoD. Didn’t catch all the answers and on this grey weekend wish I had.
Any streaming suggestions?
Charles Smith says
On the lighter side:
Great British Baking Show
David Osorio says
CNN has a history docuseries on each decade, starting in the 60s I think. They just released the 2000s. Its on Netflix
Each decade gets like 6-8 episodes and is absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended.

19.2 with Tori and Katie at 9AM.
16.2 was my first group class ever three years ago:
scaled to 25 knee ups
25 kettle bell swings (blue bell)
85lb power cleans
177 reps right at 12 mins.
Today I managed 99 reps and stuck to my plan, both of which I was very happy about. I can’t cycle either of the first 2 movements, which I actually think helped me pace this.
TTB: sets of 5.
D/U’s: sets of 15/10/15/10.
all good clean reps.
Very happy with that and so happy that I’m part of CFSBK.
Charles Smith says
oops- that’s RX.
Nice one Charles! Them’s some years of hard work paying off right thar.
Checked my old score as soon as this was announced. In 16.2, I had 78 reps, not even finishing one round and escaping the first 4 minutes. I had just learned do T2B and was doing them entirely as singles. My DUs were “meh” and I remember sprinting to the bar with 10 seconds left and busting out 3 cleans with my jumprope wrapped around my legs.
Today I came in just wanting to escape the 8 min cap, and really had no other plan but that. Chipped away at T2B the first two rounds (still can’t string together, but at least some larger sets) and a few small trips on DUs. Cleans at 85 as 7-5-3, then the cleans at 115 as singles. 115 has never felt so heavy – failed one around rep 8 (also when I began questioning all my life choices). Was carried through to my goal with the encouraging yells of Joy, Katie, and Tori (many thanks!). Started that third round by ripping my hand immediately and going all singles. Finished at 236.
Definitely great to see progress over time. I really like workouts like this that play to different strengths with the variety of movements and how people can approach it in entirely different ways.
11am with Keith and Whit
92 reps rx. I was dreading this one since it was announced. I don’t have ttb in any high capacity, although am working on them. I was hoping to at least do sets of 3, but ended up doing almost all singles with quite a few no reps. On the plus side the double unders and cleans we’re quick. I’ll continue to put the work in and hope to see it pay off in the future.

19.2 in Open Gym today with Asha and being judged by Code Red Captain Michael R who crushed this workout after me.
Finished with 172 Reps and a 6:02 tie break
That’s 7 cleans at 185.
In 2016 I got 9 cleans, but Im pretty happy with my score. The 185 felt heavier than I expected, I remember in 2016 it actually felt light and I think I was a little more amped up where this year I was anxious about and was worried I wouldn’t come anywhere near my last score. SO. Im happy I got in the ball park but now thinking about it I kinda wish I had put the foot on the gas more when I got to 185. Alas
Also want to mention that I had a GREAT time judging folks at FNL this week. That’s always such a blast
144 reps Rx’d
Tiebreaker of 3:06
TTB: in fairly quick 4s, then 3-2 for the last 5 reps; went to 3s in the second round and singles starting about rep 15
Double Unders- did them as best I could. I haven’t been able to even get a set of 10 since replacing my rope a month ago. Had an epiphany last night that it might not be the correct length. Shortened it and tested it out this morning and double unders were back! Still were only meh in the workout though!
Cleans were in quick singles. Had some really lazy looking reps in there.
I got 86 reps on 16.2 so a decent improvement. I did TTB in singles and was only able to do double unders in 3s and 4s back then so I guess I have made some progress on double unders!
It was awesome watching Nicole crush a TTB right before the workout and switch to the Rx’d version of the workout today and Amanda PR’d her clean x6 today!
