Want to learn to kip your handstand push-ups?  Sammy’s got you covered at Gymnastics tonight at 730pm!

Kettlebell snatching and single leg squats are kiiiiinda hard.  Check out this video if you’d like to prep a bit more before you arrive at class today.

Question of the Day: How do you define intensity? How do you increase it? Post thoughts to comments.

A short workout does not equal less work.  Find out more about what “Intensity” means here and today… when you do this WOD, imagine what you are physically capable of at your best – and try to achieve it.  There will be no scores posted to the whiteboard but the coach will keep scores on a clipboard to be posted at the end of the day.

    Intensity means not being able to read Cosmo while working out…Intensity means having something to lose.
