L1: Wall Balls (14# to 9ft/10# to 9ft), Single unders

Performance Tips:
This workout was inspired by Power Keg CrossFit in San Diego, CA and in collaboration with Neal Maddox. This is twist of 2 beloved benchmark workouts that will put your motor to the test. The goal is to complete the workout as quickly as possible within the time cap. However, not all athletes will be able to finish the entire workout within the time cap, so do your best and use that cap as extra motivation. Not finishing doesn't mean failure. The workout is tough by design and will help get you ready for the Open.

Pick a skill level that allows you to keep moving rather than get stuck on one of the movements like double unders. If you aren't proficient at double unders but you can still link 5-6 reps in a row, Level 2 might be the best option due to the scaled rep requirement.

Post time for the WOD. Ex: 14:10 L3.

Upcoming CFM Events

Thursday, Jan 26th: Mobility Night with Dr. Jackie Varnum at 6pm. This will be the first session of a 2 part series going over mobility for CrossFit Athletes. This first session will focus on the squat and improving hip 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.
