After hitting wrapping up their singles, everyone backed down to 60% of their max effort for the day and then went for one set of AMRAP deadlifts. The only rule was that any lifts done with poor form wouldn’t count.
To finish off, class hit two exercises for a semi-tabata finisher. Each exercise, push-ups and hollow position holds, were done for 6 rounds of 20sec of work, 10sec of rest. Push-ups were required to be chin & chest to the floor, while everyone was required to keep their low backs pressed into the floor for the hollow position holds.
Great work, with a few PR’s to boot (including Amelia at 194lbs, Ethan at 427lbs, and Anne, I believe, at 155lbs – anyone else?). Also, congratulations to all Olympic lifters who competed at the Gold Cup Challenge in New Jersey on Saturday. And once again, a big thanks to Erica and Adam for arranging Friday’s night’s CFDC Happy Hour at Madam’s Organ; it was nice to hang out beyond the walls of the gym and enjoy some good company, even if they were all camouflaged in street clothes. A small hint at what you have may missed:
Lastly, a quick announcement: CF Dupont is running a few rounds of Amazing Grace this coming Friday (Oct. 28th), from 5 to 8pm. Amazing “Grace” is an annual fundraiser that combines the efforts of Mammograms In Action working in conjunction with CrossFit affiliates worldwide to raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Mammograms In Action, a non-profit organization located in Southern California. CF Dupont will be awarding prizes for the top men and women’s time, as well as to the best dressed competing male and female athlete.
