The next Lurong Living Championship Pre-Challenge Prize WOD has been posted: http://challengeseries.lurongliving.com/champ15/blog/announcements/performance-contest-release-surprise-wod

The weights are Level 1, 2, and 3 respectively and how the competition will be scaled for all future workouts. The highest score in Level 1 would be weighted higher than the lowest score in level 3. This way athletes can choose week to week how they'd like to perform a given workout. The goal is to move well at your level: strength, work capacity, and movement proficiency.

Post your time for the WOD and level. Ex: 4:52 L1
