Open Floor: Work on the skills that need the most attention for you at the moment. What does it mean?!... It means work on the movements you hate doing because you can't do them well or can't do them at all. And don't forget flexibility. Pick the Mobility WOD from K-Star's collection, grab some bands, lacrosse balls, a foam roller and get it done. And please sign up for classes here

Quote of the Day: "Cavemen can lift weights, but cavemen are not athletes. To lift real heavy, exceptional weights you have to be an athlete. And to be an athlete you have to be a thinking athlete. Do it right." - Tommy Kono

WOD: "Pet Rock" meets "Heat Stroke"
In teams of three, complete the following as quickly as possible:
100 Hang Squat Cleans, 135/95#
200 Push-Ups with hand release
300 Box Jumps, 20″
400m x 3 Relay Run

Partition reps amongst team members as you wish, but the team must complete each task before moving to the next one. Only one athlete can do work at any given time. Each team has a pet rock (16kg KB or 35# plate or 35# DB - no scaling). The pet rock can switch hands but cannot be set down until the end of the workout. For each time the pet rock is set down each member of the team performs 10 burpees.
