Michael, Ryan, and Owen during CGO 18.4

Remember: the goal is to lockout the skeleton so the loading sits on STRUCTURE, not on a specific joint or area, which is what happens when you don’t lockout everything completely.

Almost exactly a year ago!

First Friday is a little celebration we started back at CrossFit SLU when we wanted to celebrate life and training. It’s extended back to FCF and while we were hitting it hard for a while, it disappeared.

Well, it’s back!

– Athletes from 6am to 1pm expect some OJ, champagne for those of age, fruit, and other snacks!
– Athletes from 3:30pm expect some champagne, chips, and other snacks!

While we will try our best to provide for most, we’d like to see you guys bringing some stuff to share with your swolemates!
