WOD: 21-15-9 reps for time of:
Row for calories
Note: there is a hard 10 min cap on this workout. I hate to sound like a broken record, but the clock stops at 10 minutes, and even if you have one last rep to do, your score is – DNF. Scale. Enough said.

Our Foundations classes resume this week! For more information and to sign-up go here.
Nutrition challenge: At about 30 particupants, our roster for the nutrition challenge is full! Let the the six weeks of good eating begin!
If you haven’t gotten a link to your food log and an email from posterous, you will shortly. If you have done either Elizabeth, Fran, Isabel or mini-Kelly last week, one of these workouts will be your benchmark workout. Please write down your time and the exact way you scaled (aka: green band, 75# bar, 10# wall ball, box step-ups, etc). You are responsible for keeping track of your workouts and progress. At the nutrition challenge potluck we will do Elizabeth, Fran, Isabel and mini-Kelly again. If you do not remember your time or the exact scaling for your benchmark, email [email protected] – we might have a picture of the whiteboard with your results. If you missed the whole week at the box and have not done either of the four benchmark workouts, email Olga as well.
Your logs will be checked early next week!

WOD: If you are on the nutrition challenge, do “Mini-Kelly” (20 min cap):
3 rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
30 Box Jump (24″/20″)
30 Wall Balls (20/14)
If you are not on the challenge, do full “Kelly” (33 min cap):
5 rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
30 box jump, 24 inch box
30 Wall ball shots, 20 pound ball
Note: Remember that you can also scale the number of reps to finish within the cap. If you are on the nutrition challenge and missed all of the benchmarks this week, try to come in tomorrow and do one during Open Floor class.
14 Jun 2012
WOD: Isabel (7min cap)
Snatch 135#, 30 reps for time
Note: Check your ego at the door! 7 minutes is a hard stop on the workout today, meaning the clock stops at 7 minutes. And even if you only had ONE repetition left to finish the workout when you ran out of time – you have failed the workout. DNF. There is no point in writing on the board by how much you have DNF:ed. You have FAILED. Period. So get your act together and scale the workload appropriately for your current ability. Better undershoot than overshoot. Get it done in 4 to 5 minutes or even 2 to 3 minutes, not in 6:59. And please write your score on the board. We need it not only for your friends’ viewing pleasure, but also for the overall assessment of how we are doing with the programming and training in general.
