Workout of the Day (WOD)
This week we have a partner WOD Bring-A-Friend (BAF) Day. This is a beginner friendly, all levels, partner WOD so look to invite a friend, family, or co-worker to come check out CrossFit Midtown and get in a great workout! We’ll be teaching the deadlift as it’s one of the foundational movements (see video).
A. Deadlift: Every 30 seconds for 6 minutes: 1 Deadlift 80% of 5 RM
B. 5 Rounds For Time: Partner WOD
(20/18/16) Cal Row**
15 Situps w/ Medball (20/14)
20 Partner Medball Chest Pass (20/14) 6ft
15 Kettlebell Deadlift (24’s/16’s)
All reps are team totals and the reps and rounds may be partitioned anyway. **Partner maintains a plank position with toes on the Medball while other partner does row. Men = 20 cal, M/F teams = 18, and Women = 16 per round.
Post weight for deadlift and time to complete WOD. Ex: 285#, 11:47 Rx.

This will be a 2 part series going over mobility for CrossFit Athletes. This first session will focus on the shoulder and overhead movements. Athletes will use banded distraction to increase range of motion and then use muscle activation and movement reinforcement to improve stability/mobility in the overhead press and overhead squat.
