Very important hobbies 😉 Hope you all have had an awesome weekend! Today, and every day, we remember and celebrate the life of our sweet friend Amanda!

Memorial Day Heroes Weekend is coming up this week! The weather is supposed to be a little cooler and we have a great week ahead!! Here’s what’s on tap…
Monday – Starting our week off with some halting snatch grip deadlift. Then, 3 rounds of everyones favorite things – running, wallballs and burpees! Woohoo!
Tuesday – Back Squat Day!! See if you can match or better your max effort lift at 85% of your 1RM. Then a 12 minute AMRAP of push-ups, t2b, and 100m run!
Wednesday – We metcon first today, just a few rounds of slamballs, mountain climbers and DU. Finishing the day with some ground conditioning.
Thursday – Power clean and front squat complex today. Your metcon is a quick burner of dumbbell thrusters and burpees!
Friday – We begin our heroes weekend with Barraza! “U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Ricardo Barraza, 24, of Shafter, California, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, based in Fort Lewis, Washington, died on March 18, 2006, in Ar Ramadi Iraq, when he came under small arms fire by enemy forces during combat operations.”
Saturday – Today’s hero WOD can be done individually or with a partner, Hero WOD Horton! “U.S. Army Spc. Christopher D. Horton, of Collinsville, Oklahoma, died Sept. 9, 2011, in Zurmat District, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when enemy forces attacked his unit with small-arms fire. The 26-year-old was assigned to 1st Battalion, 279 Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Oklahoma National Guard.”
Sunday – No oly class today…just open gym from 9-11!
Monday – Memorial Day – we only have our 9am class today for CrossFit and RISE! Today we will complete Murph! “In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005. This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.”
See you at the box!
