Monday Fittest of the Gym Comp WOD 1

Megan M. and Laura during the Nokomis WOD
The fittest of the gym competition starts!
 I’ll explain again. Every Monday for the next 4 weeks we will do a workout and you will be ranked according to how you finished. Ex. 1st place gets 1 point 2nd 2points. The man and woman with the least amount of points at the end will be crowned fittest of the gym. I will get some Trophies made for the Top 3.
The workouts are going to be programmed so that almost everyone can participate. Some WODs will be long and light others will be short and heavy, some might be long and heavy or we might throw in a random skill or 2. This is a judged competition, we will review the standards, you are given a sheet of paper to record then 3-2-1-go! I encourage you to participate even if you think you have no chance at winning It’s a good way to test/push yourself beyond what you are used to.
Do your best to make it in Monday, If you cannot make it in on Monday you may make it up later in the week (preferably open gym times, but no guarantees I will be able to judge for you). Results will be posted once everyone has done the WOD.

Monday 7/16/12 Grace

The Lake WOD was a ton of fun (even though I can barely swim) we are planning another one next Sunday same time. Keep in mind you can scale a swim by doing a run or you can bring your bike.

*Paleo Challenge starts Monday, Pick up your packets, get measured and bring in $15. If you already took a packet bring it in to make a minor correction that will affect your points.You will need a notebook to log your meals. The packets have guidelines about the diet and a spot to track points.
* 1 week from Monday we start our own version of the CrossFit games, the Timberwolf CrossFit fittest of the gym competition. We will do 4 workouts over 4 weeks all will be different and all will be manageable at some level for everyone to get a score. We will keep the skills at a low to mid level making the workouts more work based (that means there will not be Muscle-ups, double-unders, or other things that would keep a newbie from doing a WOD). Most that were here last year have said that the competition was one of the most fun times in the gym. Best of all we will have some sort of really cheesy trophy for the top 3 men and women to take home.

Clean and Jerk review
Clean ladder
Men start at 115, Women at 85lbs

*Swim around the buoys (stay close them in case you need to grab onto the rope, you may scale by swimming from one end to the other in chest deep water)

30 Kb swings (24/16kg)
20 goblet squats 
10 burpees
