15 minutes to establish a 1RM 3-Position Snatch (High-Hang, Hang, Full).


12 minute AMRAP of:

30 Double Unders
20 Shoulder Touches
10 Strict Pullups


If you think the execution of a double under is difficult feast your eyes on the below video, perhaps your perspective will change.




Kevin LaPlatney from the Spartan Race, put us through the paces yesterday at Sunken Meadow Park.  We trained for about 3 hours, up and down the various trails, through the water, on some of the steepest hills Long Island has to offer and burpees were thrown in for good measure.  There were parts I would swear were harder than the Spartan Beast!  There were athletes from at least 3 crossfit boxes!

Preventing Achy Elbows (And Getting A Killer Grip)  "I’ve experienced both tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow (lateral and medial epicondylitis respectively). After treating these conditions with prolotherapy, I began rooting around for the cause

….and basically no one knows for sure.

The best evidence I’ve found is anecdotal and that is the elbow, specifically the muscles around the elbow, get used with faulty patterns.

These crappy patterns can result from overly tightened forearm muscles, but even more often, the elbow is strained by a combination of bad shoulder and chest mobility leading to compensations that in turn overload the elbow–much as with the knee and bad hip and calf mobility (very few knee problems, unless direct trauma is involved) results from problems with the knees themselves."Tony Ricci for Grapple Arts.com
