Monday Workout: Back Squat Singles and Jackie

I hope everyone who joined us for the Park WOD had fun!  We had a great turnout, and got a lot of good pics.  We’ll be uploading them to Facebook early this week.  Thanks again for coming out!



Back Squat, 1-1-1-1-1-1-1, 90-95%, Rest 90 seconds to 2 minutes between singles

Notes:  This week we will be doing some heavy singles, but these are not 1RM attempts.  Weights should be anywhere from 90-95% of your 1RM.  If you have not been following the strength cycle or joined in late, then you should do sets of 3-5 reps (at moderate weight) instead of heavy singles, unless you are an experience squatter.  Next Monday we will be doing a CrossFit Total (max BS, DL, and SP in the same session).


Level 1

  • Row x 750m
  • Thruster (35#) x 40
  • Ring Row x 20

Level 2


For Time:

  • Row x 1000m
  • Thruster (45#) x 50
  • Pull-up x 30

Notes: Compare to Here.  Do not drop empty bars!


Going Away Party for Jon and Elizabeth!

Jon and Elizabeth have been integral members of the gym since the beginning, and it will be hard to see them go!  Before they leave we want to send them off in style in the only way we know best, a bar crawl! Join us for one last celebration on Saturday, July 26th as we raise a glass to say thanks for all that they have taught us and contributed to our community. RSVP to the Facebook event if you plan to join us!
