It’s about time we had another get together in the backyard and I can’t think of a better reason than this.
The Workout is actually great for the backyard in it’s format and it will allow us to work together! We will be holding the event the weekend after Independence Day: July 6th, 2013. Here it is:
3 rounds of:
Burpee-Power Snatch-Box Jump-Thruster-Chest to Bar Pull Up
There are standards with weight and height of the box, however, scaling is essential in making sure everyone completes this workout. If you take a little time to look at the movements you can see it is a great combination of skill and conditioning. Both are challenging in their own way and this is a great way to test your fitness as well as do something for a greater purpose.
This year I would like us to participate in the fundraising as well. If you go to the CrossFit for Hope website you can register to create a page where you can get sponsors and donate. If you want to donate you can donate through my page or directly through the homepage. Take some time to read about the mission of CrossFit for Hope and what events you can plan for in the future.
If you are planning on participating in the workout I will be making a minimum $5 buy in. Obviously, that will be going directly towards Hope and if you want to make a donation through my link above then the fee will be waived. This will be the first time anyone has ever been charged at the garage and I think, it is only fitting that it goes towards a good cause!
Hope everyone is having a great summer and is signed up for at least one competition with their friends!
All the best, Nick.
