The 4:30 class working through the wall Balls during 17.4!
Attention: The last Open workout is this week, which means we will be having our annual Spring/End of the Open BBQ this Friday! We will be starting the “Friday Night Lights” at 5:30pm and having the party after all heats are finished. This year we are excited to be bring in the food truck that we had at our Grand Opening, prizes, and a lot of fun! Each CFD member will receive a food ticket, feel free to bring any other food and drinks that you would like. We can’t wait to see all of you there!


Option 1:
“Goat Day”
EMOMx 20:
Odd Min: Movement 1
Even Min: Movement 2

“Goat” is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double-Unders, Ring Dips, Overhead Squats. These are the best days to turn perceived “weaknesses” into “strengths.” No better way to do that than today.

We don’t improve our technique with a high heart rate–that’s what we refer to as “training”. Today is geared towards “practice,” dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double-unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump.

When we couple “training” with “practice” throughout the week in the right doses, we set ourselves on the fast track to results. Choose two “Goats” to work on, and we’ll alternate between them on each minute. Coaches will have great suggestions in class.

Option 2:
Make up a WOD that you missed, or a WOD that you have really been wanting to try, work on skills, etc!

*You must still come to one of the regularly scheduled WOD times.
