For those of you that maybe a little beat up from last month you can approach this workout(and next week) at an 80%. The goal should be to raise the heart rate a bit and sweat, do not push yourself to the max right now.

Row 1K

EMOM for 20
Odd – 5 Bench Press
Even – 5 Hang Power Cleans

Keep the weights around 60-65%. The next week will be a “de-load” week. Take advantage of this and do not go heavy if you are beat up from HERO Month.

We are finished with HERO month! That was a bit harder than last year so thanks for sticking with it. We certainly had more participation this year. Congrats!

We won’t be doing too many “for time” workouts for the next week or so. Expect some strength training once we take it easy for a bit.

Only 1 class on Monday, 8am.

Megan B. new coach at CF480!

Meg was diagnosed with Lupus when she was 12 years old. It was at this time she realized she had a choice to make. She could give in and let the disease control her life or she could fight to gain her health back. Needless to say, health and fitness became the foundation upon which she built her life.
When she realized what a positive impact nutrition and fitness had on her life, she couldn’t help but want to show others what it could do for them. Right out of high school, she began personal training and realized there was nothing more gratifying than helping someone change their life for the better. She was introduced to CrossFit in 2011, signed up for the CrossFit level 1 course, and never looked back.
She never played any sports in high school, but found herself enjoying obstacle races including the Spartan Super, Spartan Sprint, and Tough Mudder races. Eventually she realized she had a stronger passion for CrossFit and set a goal of making it to regionals. Year after year she worked towards her goal of competing at regionals, all while coaching and helping others achieve their own personal goals. In 2017, she was finally able to make her dream come true and competed at the CrossFit Games Central Regional in Nashville.
She believes anything is possible if you set your mind to it, and she hopes to prove this to others by helping them reach their own personal dreams.

“The Seven”

A suicide bomber killed seven CIA officers and one Jordanian officer at a remote base in southeastern Afghanistan on December 30, 2009 after posing as a potential informant reporting on Al Qaeda. Seven new stars will be etched onto the memorial wall at the CIA where every star represents grieving friends, family and colleagues dedicated to fight against the enemy, forever in their name.

Killed in the attack were CIA officers Jennifer Lynne Matthews, 45; Scott Michael Roberson, 39; Harold E. Brown Jr., 37; Darren LaBonte, 35; Elizabeth Hanson, 30; and security contractors Jeremy Jason Wise, 35, and Dane Clark Paresi, 46. – crossfit.com

Seven rounds for time of:
7 Handstand push-ups
7 Thrusters 135/95
7 Knees to elbows
7 Deadlifts 245/165
7 Burpees
7 KBS 70/53
7 Pull-ups

*HSPU scale – DB strict press

There are a lot moving parts on this workout. How this works is you will partner up with 2-3 people. For a group of 3 you only need 2 bars and 1 Kettlebell. You will not have an issue with sharing equipment with 7 different stations and only 7 reps at each station. Keep all the deadlift bars for the class in one area and the thruster bars in another area(for larger classes). Same with the Kettlebells, this way the gym is not a gaggle …. Stay organized!
Please don’t do burpees near the barbells.
***Coaches note – you can leave out a few deadlift & thruster bars loaded with weight so the next classes can use, just make sure they are clean.
You can do a staggered for the groups.

Scaling for this WOD is very easy. For newbies you can just use DB for thrusters and KB or DB for deadlifts, please get with a coach to help you setup.
For HSPUs you can perform DB strict press. Ring rows for pull-ups. Also, please keep the KBS Russian style if you are new.
