Deadlifts and Snatches and Cleans, Oh My!

This weekend marks the last week of the 2014 CrossFit Games Open. This also means that we have one more CGO Event taking place at here at FCF this Saturday from 11am to 2pm, with a BBQ to follow. This means that CrossFit SLU will be closed this Saturday before we return to a normal schedule.

Next week we'll start with a retest of the entire 2013 CrossFit Games Open, doing each event every Friday so that you can compare to your results from last year.
  • Friday 4/4 - CGO 13.1
  • Friday 4/11 - CGO 13.2
  • Friday 4/18 - CGO 13.3
  • Friday 4/25 - CGO 13.4
  • Friday 5/2 - CGO 13.5
After that we plan to retest the entire 2014 CGO as well, hopefully with better conditioning and strategy (as strength won't increase that much).

We want to run more Skill Workshops, too. What kind of skills would you want to spend time working on?

Upcoming Events:
  • Run Club - Tomorrow 3/26 at FCF. 7pm. Open to members and non-members!
  • The Finale: CGO 14.5 - Saturday 3/29 at FCF. 11am to 2pm with BBQ to follow!
  • CrossFit Total - Saturday 4/5 at CFSLU. 9am to 12pm.
