Great Strides

What a great night!  The Pullup Whisperer arrived!  Gloria M strung together multiple pull-ups for the first time ever!  Gloria is a tenacious competitor, pharmacy and her attitude provides a great example to all athletes.  Lara, Conney, Jenn and more made great strides to getting a pull-up!  Keep up the great work!
And what fearless attitudes we saw.  Getting upside down is a big step for a lot of people.  We saw people committing to the movement, and pulling off beautiful handstands!  Now, I don’t want to hear stories about any of you doing handstands at work to impress your bosses.  Well, maybe I do…
Tomorrow at 4pm is the Foundational Movements Class – The Clean. This class will be 30 minutes long. Please RSVP either on Facebook or email [email protected] Wednesday’s Foundational Movement Class will be the Shoulder Press.

Workout of the Day
Squat Clean
Build to a heavy Squat Clean in 15 minutes.  If you are not catching at full depth, make sure you execute a front squat after you have clean the weight.
Metcon
AMRAP 9
7 Cleans 135/95
10 Pistols (Alternating One Legged Squats)
12 Jump and Touch
Pistols are easily scalable, find something to hold on to and keep your balance.
Jump and Touch is just like it sounds: find a target beyond your reach, and jump and touch it.  Target ideas: a pull-up bar, a ring, the stripe, the rollup door.
