Tuesday we’re looking for a one rep max front squat. We last did this on July 27th. When using this rep scheme it’s imperative not to rush things. We’re not trying to max out on the sets of 5 or 3, but using them to get warm and comfortable as the weight increases towards a one rep max. It’s also important to take your time on the final three singles. Give yourself a few minutes between each. Not enough to cool off, but enough to let your heart rate come down, allow your head to clear, and for you to refocus on the next attempt. This is not a metcon. The goal is not to get this done fast. Our aim tomorrow is to move as much weight as possible. Have patience, and it could pay dividends with a new PR.

Strength: Front Squat 5-5-3-3-1-1-1
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.
