In addition to working towards a 3 rep max back squat on Thursday we’re also taking on events 1 and 2 from the 2010 European Regional for the CrossFit Games. Event 1 is the run. Event 2 is the total reps of ground to overhead you complete in the remaining time. We’re a kilo gym, and because this was a European qualifying event the loads used are in kilos, so no messing around with conversions. This one speaks our language. Joe and Aaron gave it a try, and did so well at the ground to overhead portion (38 and 37 reps respectively), they decided to move to Europe in order to have a better shot at qualifying for the 2011 CrossFit Games. If you’re traveling over there, and come across an area that needs CrossFit, please let the guys know.
Strength: Low Bar Back Squat 3-3-3-3-3
WOD: With a 15 minute running clock:
Max reps ground to overhead (70kg/50kg)
*Score is time on the run, and reps of clean and jerk
***No Invasion this Saturday, October 16th
Work on your agility, coordination, and balance. Join your CrossFit Fenway friends at the Havana Club in Central Square on Saturday, October 23rd at 9 PM, for a night of salsa dancing, socializing, and fun. Lessons and libations are available to help you learn the moves. Like any WOD, proper footwear can help performance, so try to avoid rubber-soled shoes that will grip the floor and make turning more difficult.
Compete in the most physically demanding obstacle course available on Saturday, November 13th in Marshfield at Ruckus Boston 2010. Stephanie Schneider is helping to organize the CrossFit Fenway team. Please contact her if you’d like to participate, as discounts are available for teams.
