- Deadlift x 10, Rest 10 Seconds
- Double Under x 30, Rest 2 Minutes
Notes: Moderate weight on deadlift (50-60% 1RM) – focus on touch and go reps if possible. Double Under sets should be unbroken if you are proficient at them. If still working on double unders, scale the reps, or attempt max double unders/attempts in 30 seconds to 1 minute. Use rest time between sets to work on shoulder mobility with bands, etc. Elevate barbell if necessary on deadlift to work on form.

Competition Season is Almost Here!
Registration for the CrossFit Games Open 2014 starts January 15! We encourage everyone in the gyms to compete, especially if you competed last year. The Open is a great way to see how you have improved since you started CrossFit, as well as to see how you stack up to people all across the world! See the CrossFit Games website for more information. As the Open approaches, we will begin our prep by tweaking the programming to help prepare for the types of workouts that have traditionally come up in the open over the past 3 years. Even if you are not planning to compete, the programming phase will benefit you as we plan to touch on more skill based work, olympic lifts, and of course moving yourself and some weights.
