START BRINGING A NOTEBOOK TO CLASS AND RECORD YOUR WORK.
5 -7 mins
Running/Rowing/ Jump roping
Skill: 20 mins
On the minute for 20 minutes, do 1 to 3 reps of a skill of your choice. These should be skills you find difficult to do. Choose a skill or use a weight that will allow you to do no more than 3 reps per minute cycle.The goal is not to wear yourself out, but to build strength over a 4 week period. Choose pushups, strict or chest to bar or weighted pullups,handstand pushups, ring dips, pistol squats, or Muscle ups. Your goal is to not vary in reps you are able to do from 1 minute to 20 minutes. For all 20 minutes the most you should vary is by 2 repetitions. If you are unable to do even one repetition of say, pullups, then you may try a flexed arm hang for 3 to 7 secs max on each minute.

If you have not started to bring a notebook to class, now is the time to start tracking your progress.
The month of July we will have set days of skill and strength along with the WOD. This may help you figure out set days that you would like to come to class.
For the exception of July4th, here is what we will be doing.
Monday: Back Squat
Wednesday: Skill of Choice or Power Cleans/Jerks
The strength program will be slightly different from what we have been doing, but you will be gaining confidence, consistency in skill and improving in strength.
Please keep track of your workouts as it will be easier to gauge your increase in weights or reps each week.
4th of July Schedule: One group class at 11 am, open gym from noon to 1:30.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEFF!!!!
Did you convince Jeff you give you a CrossFit NOLA wrist band yet?
Steak lunch at O'Henry's, probably around 1pm. Jeff is working out after the 10 am class, he is going to get nice and ripe and then go out in public....
Will head out for a drink or so at about 9:30-10 pm ish, somewhere on Magazine, likely options are Balcony Bar, Bulldog, Rendezvous.
5 pistol squats, each leg
Any form of a max ring hold. Hold yourself upside down, in a plank, L-sit, L-tuck or Hollow Rock
WOD (Thanks to Mollie for the Workout!):
In teams of 2. Games Style: 1 person works at a time. Each of you must complete each movement before moving onto the next one. For example: Person A does 30 burpees, then Person B does 30 burpees. Once person B has completed all 30 Burpees, person A may move on to Thrusters. You may not divide up reps. You must finish all reps before the next person can move on.
6 Squat Cleans 95/65lb
25 Thrusters 95/65lb
81 Double Unders
30 Overhead Squats 95/65lb
You may only use one bar, so if you need to scale the weight, say 55lb for overhead squat, you will use the same bar for Cleans and Thrusters. Each person may have their own bar, so a team of a male and female may have one 95lb bar and one 65lb bar.
5 toes to bar
Warm up with 2 sets of 5, one set of 3 deadlift
the 5-3-1+ set should be 70%, 80%, 90% of 1 rep max
Example: if one rep max is 225, the set looks like this:
WOD: Crossfit Games Regional Wkt 3 (2011)
30"/24" Box Jump
Mollie Pate 8:30, Brandon Ecker 8:35, Aja Barto 4;26, Jeff Germond 5:26
