Coach's Corner
This workout has been developed by Neal Maddox to be the first of 2 benchmark workouts. It is modeled off one of the original benchmark workouts and adapted to create appropriate skill levels for our wide range of athletes. The original workout was only 1 round no matter what the skill level, but we are challenging both our level 2 and level 3 athletes to take it up a notch with 2 rounds.

Pick a level based on your current abilities, not because you feel like you should be an X level athlete. The goal is to move as quickly through the workout as possible without getting stuck on one movement due to it being too heavy or too advanced of a movement. We will be retesting this workout in 6 weeks for all CFM members. Enjoy the workout and this variation on the Baseline!

And coming tomorrow...

20 Minute AMRAP “Open Test”
50 Wall balls (20/14) to (10/9ft)
50 Double Unders
40 Box Jumps (24/20”)
40 Toes to Bar
30 Chest to Bar Pullups
30 Bar Facing Burpees
20 Cleans (145/100)
20 Jerks (145/100)
10 Snatches (145/100)
10 Muscle Ups

Post total reps completed in the WOD. Ex: 286 Rx.
