establish a 20RM back squat (shoot for about 55% of your 1RM) then
AMRAP in 3:00
3 power cleans, 29/43/61kg
9 air squats
Rest 1:00. Repeat for 5 total rounds. Score = Each of the full rounds completed for all five rounds (ex 22333). Compare to 2/25/2020. Post scores to whiteboard!
This week marks the first of six weeks where we will do a 20-rep back (or front) squat in Monday S&C classes. Your goal is consistency of depth and timing, adding 2-5kg each week and *never* failing a set.
Week 7 we will deload then on Week 8 we will test a 1RM in class.
“In 2013, a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, a publication of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NCSA), found that 10 weeks of CrossFit improves body composition (among other things). But it also noted that among the study subjects, 16 percent had to drop out of the study early due to injury. That was a problem for CrossFit, Inc., says Tucker Jones, owner and head coach at Ballston CrossFit and CrossFit Route 7, because it was false. Some of the ‘injured’ athletes have sworn the information was fabricated, a retraction has since been added to the study and CrossFit, Inc. was awarded monetary compensation from the NCSA for the unsubstantiated claims (which the journal’s editor is said to have added in a later draft), [but] the damage was done. The media was quick to publish stories about the injury risk and the sport became known as dangerous.”

Next Wednesday, June 13 we will not have 6:30pm or 7:30pm classes (CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting classes) as we’ll be holding a Staff Meeting. The last class of the day will be 5:30pm. The gym will close promptly at 6:30pm.
(Those who wanted to do the evening OWL Wednesday program will have a chance to do it in any of that Thursday’s CrossFit classes)
Another retest of the 2018 CrossFit Games Open workouts. Look forward to 18.4 and 18.5 next week! Until then hopefully you’ve been working on your double unders and muscle-ups!
THE CHIEF is a fun interval test to see how much work you can maximize per round, but repeat for multiple times. What is your drop off like, if any? Could you add another round in to each of your cycles? Which of the three exercises hold you back? Which of the three exercises lend to your strengths? Did you time the work properly to maximize the allotted time? So many factors, but a focus on one or more could lead you to better results.
