As part of this Memorial Day weekend, we are inviting our members to bring pictures of their military friends, family and loved ones to the box this Saturday, Sunday or Monday. We will set up an area in the box for the photos to be displayed for the upcoming week. These photos will remind us that a little bit of pain in the gym is small in comparison to the pain and sacrifices these men and women face every day and are willing to give their lives for.

DT (Time)

5 Rounds for time:
12 Deadlifts, 155# / 105#
9 Hang Power Cleans, 155# / 105#
6 Push Jerks, 155# / 105#

On paper, the number of reps per round seems manageable; the weight isn’t that heavy, and five-rounders are standard in the CrossFit world. But experiencing this WOD and reading about it are worlds apart. The sequence of movements is part of what makes it so difficult. The workout takes you from pull to push, from power lift to Olympic lifts, targeting the metabolic pathways that are the route to increased athletic performance.
