Performance Tips:
This workout is a repeat of the "Holiday Blast" at CFM from 12/30/2016 but slightly modified (ie 1 minute longer, slightly lighter weight). For our athletes you can use this workout as an opportunity to see how much you have improved and should go to bet your previous score by 1 more full round. This workout has three levels for the weights so choose the skill level that will challenge you and that you can keep moving. If you need to break up the sets of front squats, you might consider dropping to a lower skill level.

Upcoming CFM Events

Thursday, Feb 9th: Mobility Night with Dr. Jackie Varnum at 6pm. This will be the 2nd session of a 2 part series going over mobility for CrossFit Athletes. This 2nd session will focus on the shoulder and both front rack/overhead mobility through increased range of motion, muscle activation, and movement reinforcement.

Thursday, Feb 23rd: The 2017 Open begins! CrossFit Midtown will be doing the open workouts on Friday during regular classes and then each week we have a Friday Night Lights (FNL) competition highlighting match-ups with both individual and team events as well as a gym social Friday evenings after the workouts. The 1st Open workout is released on Thursday, February 23rd and continues for 5 weeks with 1 new workout each week. Participating in the Open is a seminal CrossFit experience and we highly recommend all athletes who have been training at CFM for a year or more to sign up. This is a great opportunity to test your fitness and enjoy the camaraderie and community of CrossFit. Click here to register for the open and join Team CFM.
