Thursday - announcements and demo links

The kids are out on vacation - the CrossFit kids class is going to take a little break as most of the young athletes are out of town for vacation.  Please check the schedule for updates.

On a related note, our 9:30 am babysitters are out for the next couple of weeks.  It sure has been nice having them around!  They will be back after about two weeks.

Check out the little baseball bat weight on the sledge hammer - a quick way to add an extra pound.

The CrossFit elite athletes did a huge rowing event - read about it here.  OMG.  You can ask James what rowing 21,097 meters is like; he has done it.

My classes have been practicing the Inverted Burpee, a fun move from the archives.  Well I remember doing 100... 

Jerk 3 rm (Practice the split.  Check out this squat jerkMore in practice.)

155 pound Squat Clean and Jerk, 30 reps
The barbell goes from ground to overhead, passing through a front squat in which the crease of the hip passes below the height of the kneecap. The finish position is with the arms, hips and knees fully extended, arms overhead, with at least a portion of the ear visible in front of the arm. Dropping the barbell is acceptable.

Yes. Jess Woodings has too. And then this one time we both rowed 42,198.
