Hey team, we always like to start the week off with a bang and this week is no exception. We've got a great session lined up for Monday - Tuesday that covers a lot of bases!
We're going to work on Front Squat strength and follow that up with a challenging, decreasing - reps triplet of hang squat snatch, pullups, and bar hop burpees.
And we'll also have our weightlifting skills on Tuesday night at 7pm for Unlimited members, so drop in then to get more specific practice!
Last but not least, we have our Canada Day track workout at 8am on Wednesday at Oak Bay track. Come on out and take on a tough challenge with about 20 of your CrossFit buddies!
See you soon
