Next week (Oct. 31st) we will begin 2 consecutive 6-weeks cycles. The first will be comprised of Olympic lifting technique and development + Raw strength building (think slower but powerful movements). The second cycle will consist of working to build up 1RM in the Olympic lifts (Snatch and Clean and Jerk) and drill/prepare us for the movements commonly found in the CrossFit Open that present challenges to participants (handstand push-ups, double unders, muscle ups etc.)
Reminder: The CrossFit Liftoff begins on Nov. 3rd (next Thursday!) Sign-up now on games.crossfit.com! We will perform 1RM Snatch and Clean and Jerk for the WOD next Friday and the METCON the following Monday.
