Summer Yoga Series at CrossFit Midtown
We have a 2nd guest Yoga Instructor this Saturday 6/20 at 12 PM as we begin our summer yoga series at CrossFit Midtown. Lana Wilson believes yoga is a terrific option for athletes to complement the often-repetitive motions of training particularly in CrossFit. For Lana, yoga is a lifestyle; it is freedom and bliss. She grew up watching her father practice yoga daily but it was not until she began to experience the demands of getting an engineering degree that she turned to the practice. As a former gymnast and cheerleader, Lana initially practiced yoga as an outlet for physical expression, but it grew into a sustained devotional passion as she transitioned to professional life.
Warm and energetic, Lana will lead you through a dynamic, powerful sequence that cultivates awareness of the mind-body-breath connection. Her classes build heat and intensity with an engaging blend of alignment-based instruction and focus on the foundation. Vital elements include effective flexibility training, foundation and core stabilization, strengthening and balance work.
Join us on Saturday at 12pm for a special introduction to yoga for CrossFitters lead by Lana Wilson!

And coming Saturday…
Competition of 2v2 or 2v1 or 1v1
8 minutes As many rounds as possible (AMRAP) of:
40 Double Unders**
4 Tandem Burpees
Clean & Jerk (m = 135/185, w = 95/125). As many reps as possible (AMRAP). Stop, aka “Cutoff” when opponent team finishes 4th Tandem Burpee.(~)
Rest 2 minutes between matches.
**Scale to 20 (Single + DU), Speed Step (1:1, R+L = 1), or to Singles (2:1)
(~)Both partners must finish their 4th Tandem Burpee and then yell/call “Cutoff!”. Until “Cutoff” is yelled other team may still complete C&J.
Flip a change weight to see which team starts in section 1 and the other will start in section 2. Reps for Double unders, burpees, and distance for sprint are individual totals. Both partners working at the same time on the same movement to complete their individual total. Teams competing against each other should use the same 2 bars for [Section 2] provided athletes are all doing Rx or all doing the same scaled weight.
Team with most Clean & Jerk after 3 matches wins “Cutoff!”
Post team total C&J completed from 3 matches.
2v2 Ex: 107 vs 95 Rx.
2v1 Ex: 65 (scaled) vs 32 Rx+ — Team of 2 wins because reps/person = 32.5!
1v1 Ex: 42 vs 37 Rx+
