Dear Kelly and Michael and the CROSSFITRX team,

We LOVE your T-shirts!  I definitely have a few Soldiers who are drinking the kool-aid.  I sent you a pic of two of my most fit Soldiers. They are all about some grueling WODs!  Your support is much appreciated. 

Thanks again!  You guys ROCK!

  1. Leg burner. Didn’t realize until this morning that the AMRAP was squat snatches not power.

    6 rounds + 2 Du RX
    145# on Snatch complex

  2. Don’t forget, we will be watching the finals of the crossfit games LIVE, starting at 1:30 on Sunday at the gym. Everyone is welcome, bring your own snacks, drinks and chairs.

  3. Great photo!!

    Ruthie and I leave for Belgium and Germany today. See you in a couple of weeks! Cheer for Shana and CF Atlanta for us!

    Your pal,

  4. Coach Michael said this WOD calls for squat snatches.

    Practiced snatch complex at 45# and 55#. AMRAP: one (yes, one) round + 30 + 10. I just could not power through the snatches quickly because I was trying for a full squat every time.

    1. …just confirming in case anyone else is wondering about the range-of-motion for this wod…this was Not supposed to be the same wod as the Open one from a year ago…or it would have said “power” before the word squat. p.s. everyone today did a Great Job getting down for the squats 😉

  5. Snatch complex 85lbs
    And didn’t get to do the AMRAP
    If I get to go to yoga tomorrow I am going to do it after yoga at 930…. This is a request to hold me accountable yoga partners;) Happy Friday

      1. Oh I would love to do it before, who. Oils let us in? My brother is out of town;( I don’t think any of the coaches get there Before 830;(

  6. Strength: FS + PJ: Worked up to 135.
    Metcon: 3 rounds
    25 jumping squats (35#)
    25 push press (45#)
    run 400m

  7. Dropped in @ CF Grit in st simon’s… Great WOD + great folks. We did “7 rounds of heaven” which was a bunch of sprints, sit ups, deads, weighted lunges all performed in obnoxious humidity.
