Thanks to the entire CFM community for training with us over the years.
Whether you joined recently, or back in May 14th of 2012 when we opened the doors, THANK YOU for building the CFM community.
We've enjoyed coaching you, PR-ing with you, grinding through tough WODs together and just helping Midtown Atlanta become a fitter community.

There's a lot of CrossFit action happening throughout our Anniversary weekend, and we hope you can join us for some of the fun starting Thursday with our Bring-A-Friend Day and Candlelight Yoga! This Saturday we'll be here at CFM for our Annual Kessel Run WOD in the morning and then the 7th Anniversary party from 1-5 pm with some food catered by the wonderful Marlow's Tavern, cold drinks, all your friends, fun games, and some good times.

Workout of the Day (WOD)

“Raising the Bar”

9 Minute AMRAP

8 Lateral Bar Hop Burpees
7 Cleans
6 Front Rack Lunges (Level 1 – Front Squats)
5 Shoulder to Overhead

(m = 65/95/135, w = 45/55/95)

Tips from Neal Maddox:

I trust you will enjoy this workout again. Think about your experience with the workout the first time around. Did you struggle in your transitions? Could you have taken more strategic rest? For example, if you need to break up a round, it is better to set the bar down after 6 cleans, rest and then clean the bar up into the front rack position for your 7th rep. This sets you up for your front rack lunges without doing an extra rep. Also, fight not to put the bar down during front rack lunges and shoulder to overhead, because every drop results in an extra clean. Have fun, stay steady, and we can't wait to see your improvements. - Neal Maddox - 7 Time Games Athlete

Post rounds and reps completed. Ex: 7+7 L3

Compare to 09.19.17
