17.2 Scores must be entered by 7:59PM Monday night. Coach Rob can validate them after that time so be patient if you don't see your score on the leadboard immediately after you enter it.
Saturday's open turnout was great! We had 67 athletes take on 17.2 and the energy in the gym was incredible. Let
's keep it up leading into week 3.

We would like to give you all a reminder to please be on time and prepared for class.
This means being ready for the warmup portion and not playing catch-up. 
It holds up the flow of class at times, especially in the larger classes.
We also appreciate the attentiveness and respectfulness to our coaches as they are teaching and explaining the program. Thank You!

*1 minute rest between sets

We have improved our muscular endurance and stamina over the last few months pulling from the floor, which helped us survive 17.1 and will continue to serve us as we see Deadlifts and Olympic Lifts looming in the upcoming Open work outs.  We'll now spend the last few weeks of the Open fine tuning this and adding the breathing component by shortening the rest.  These sets should absolutely be unbroken, touch and go, but at a steady and controlled pace.  Use double overhand grip as long as possible.  

EMOM for 16 minutes:
A-15 Kettlebell Swings (53/35)
B-15 Sit Ups
C-10 Box Jumps+Row Max Calories in remaining time
*Swings should be unbroken throughout.  Optional scale up to GHD Sit Ups, but watch your volume if you are not used to them.   For first timers, 8 per round is sufficient.  Be quick on the Box Jumps and go hard on the rower.  Your score is total Calories.
