Testing Week!

It’s here, actually a week late, but nonetheless, it is here, end of the Spring Cycle Test Week.  For those of you that do not know, it is simply the last three months of studying and now is the final (so to speak).  Come in and get a good baseline data set, or compare numbers to last time and get that PR (Personal Record).  Let’s display the hard work you’ve been putting in!  The scheduling will be different.  They will be 2 hour classes and if you would like to come in for it, it is for only one day next week.  As in, we will be running the exact same class for the whole week.  We do this for a couple reasons.  One, is to allow everyone to get a chance to come in and perform the session.  Another reason (most importantly) is for the simple fact that we believe in the process of periodization.  You guys have been hitting it hard for a while now and it’s time to let those tweaks and aches heal up!  A rest period for longer than just 24 hours is very beneficial (yes, I realize I need to take my own advice, then maybe I wouldn’t have so many injuries).  The gym will be closed Thursday night through Sunday to facilitate rest and for the fact that we will be down in San Jose competing for our shot to make it to the CrossFit Games (those of you that do not know what that is, it is essentially the Super Bowl or World Series of CrossFit, an international fitness competition).  We will be testing the following things in this order:

Max Weight:

Turkish Get Up (Part 2, Part 3)

Snatch (See here)

Clean & Jerk  (See here)


75 Power Clean and Jerk (75/45) – 6 min cap


10 min AMRAP:

5 Toes to Bar

10 Thrusters (75/45)

15 Ball Slams (20/15)


Three Rounds of:

1 km Row with a mandatory 60 rest in between rounds


Again, classes will be for two hours long.  I will fix the schedule to reflect that later this afternoon.  So, if you are currently signed up for next week, resign up for appropriate time.  You can only come to one class next week!  However, as mentioned earlier, I will set up “open gym” and it will not count against your groupon sessions for there will be minimal coaching, hence the “open” part. 


Happy Training!
