150324 Tuesday – “Divergent”

This Friday we will be doing the last Open workout for the season and Tres Agaves will be here to serve up Post workout Margaritas. Heats will start at 6:00pm and go until 7:30pm. Please sign up in advance for one of the time slots (Register just as you would normally for class but select ‘CF Games Open’). The normal 6:30pm class has been canceled, making the 5:30 class the last available. Sunday’s normal schedule has been reduced because of the Friday night event so come join us Friday Night!

Coaching Tips: The workout is two rounds of the same movements followed by a minute rest. Try and keep a steady pace through the first round and then pick up the pace in the second round since you will get that minute rest. If range of motion (squatting below parallel, etc) is a big issue with your overhead squat then scaling to squat cleans and front squats will let you use more weight and get a much better workout.

Scaling Guide: 2 – 4 Rounds (Which is really 4 – 8 rounds)
