Put your hands together…

And give yourselves a round of applause.  With the first week of the Opens behind us, 15.1 and 15.1A have already tested our grips and our explosive power / technique.  With such a strong opener, one can only wonder what is left over in the four weeks to come.  Last year we had C2B Pull Ups with Overhead Squats!  What will we have in 15.2?  Maybe some Burpee Chest to Bars?!!!

Cross your fingers,

Reeeeeeeeeeeemix…

At the beginning of the month, we had teams of 3 tackle a workout that included 6 of the CrossFit girls.  Today, we have a remix where we eliminate two workouts (Grace and Isabel), but we also take out one partner.  You and one partner will only have one bar per team (save the M/F teams), but you can split the work however you see fit!

M/F≠Monday / Friday,

Since I am posting this ahead of time…

Good luck everyone!  I am very likely watching the live feed as you are and hoping that something deliciously evil like Burpees and Thrusters doesn’t come out of Castro’s mouth.  We shall see how things go, but no matter what, rely on form and technique to move you and pace yourselves correctly!

I can read your thoughts…

I know that you think that this cannot possibly be hard, or it’s going to be boring, or I can just do this at home (if you bought a $1000 rower), or what’s for dinner.  If you are in any of those camps, I challenge you to defeat the following world records and prove your fitness:

Luanne Mills:  Under 130 lbs. in the 70-74 YO category with a time of:  8:12.7 (set in 2009)
Robert Spenger:  Under 160 lbs. in the 85-89 YO category with a time of:  8:13.6 (set in 2013)

It gets worse!  If we don’t account for anyone who is a quinquagenarian or older, then your challenges are:

Lisa Schlenker:  Under 130 lbs. in the 40-49 YO category with a time of:  7:09.6
Jesus Gonzalez:  Under 160 lbs. in the 40-49 YO category with a time of:  6:16.2

And these are only the light weight records,

Talk about the Opens…

Make sure that you let people know that less than one week remains before the first workout starts.  Be exact with the information provided and make sure you remind them that the deadline is Thursday.  You must not forget to remind them that the gym will be doing the workouts every Friday.  Mention how scaled workout will be the Level 1 while the Rx workout will make up the L2.  Also don’t forget to say that you will stop being their friend if they don’t sign up.

Definitely leave the best part for last,

One last thing…

Please be mindful that you do not have to be on a team to take part in the Paleo Challenge (I know what the rules say!!!!).  Also please be mindful that your teammate doesn’t have to be from the gym.  If you have someone at work, someone at home, someone at the bar…wherever.  The idea is to have some kind of support system, a Paleo wingman if you will!  Remember that it takes two to tango.

And two to succeed in the Paleo Challenge,
