Tonight was a big night at the gym. We just combining the evening classes, so my traditionally smaller Monday Nights (usually Kristin, Jamie and Clayton) now turned into a 12-person class that Orion and I coached together! What a change, huh? The energy in the gym was great, though, and I think everyone had a great time!

The first part of the workout was 5 sets of 5 back squats. The folks who used to train with me usually had an entire rack to themselves, but tonight worked in with 3 or 4 other athletes. Again, despite the change, everything seemed to go very well from my perspective. I think we even had some pretty big numbers put up, too!

Workout of the Day:
3 Rounds for Time of-
50 Air Squats / 10 Power Snatches / 15 Pull-Ups

For some of my folks, it was their first time doing more high-rep snatches in a workout, and I think that you all did an awesome job! Also, breaking down the rep schemes for higher rep Air Squats really seemed to help make the workout manageable. I was proud of you all for doing so well in front of such a large audience.

Athlete Results:
5×5 Back Squat
Kristin- 95lbs x 5
Jamie- 155lbs x 5
Clayton- 175lbs x 9!

Kristin (35lb Snatch / 1-Banded Pull-Ups)- 10:50
Jamie (65lb Snatch / 4-Banded Pull-Ups)- 16:02
Clayton (70lb Snatch / Unassisted Pull-Ups)- 13:48
