Let me start this post by saying how much I LOVE having a full house at CrossFit Lakewood! Lovelovelove it!

Today we did one of the most effective Strength movements for increasing overall power: The Back Squat. For such a powerful movement, you’d think people would like it more. 🙂

The workout of the day had a heavy thruster and high box jumps for reps. We’re stepping up our fresh here at the gym. You are all doing an awesome job with it, too!

Workout of the Day

Strength:
Back Squat 3×3 warm-up, 5×2 working sets

WOD:
As Many Rounds As Possible in 10 minutes
8 Thrusters (115#/75#) / 16 Box Jumps (32″/24″)

Class was so full tonight we had to run two heats! Thank you all so much for remaining focused and helping this run so smoothly.

Finally, I want to show you guys one of our resident “Manimals”, Alon. For the few months he’s been at CrossFit Lakewood, there’s been no doubt about how INCREDIBLE his improvement has progressed. GREAT JOB, Alon!!
