3.14 - 3.20

Welcome to week 4 of the 2016 CrossFit Games Open! Congratulations to everyone who completed 16.3 and to our athletes who got their first-ever bar muscle ups! The coaching staff has been having a blast seeing everyone’s progress throughout the Open so far. Let’s keep the energy high and finish strong as we near the finish line of the 2016 CrossFit Open!

If you’ve yet to sign up for “Flex in the City” on April 17th and would still like to be on a team, please contact a coach as soon as possible. Spots for Flex events typically go pretty quickly and they are a great time! If you are on the fence, come join the fun.

Quote of the Week: “Be quick, but don’t hurry.” – John Wooden

“When you hurry you're more apt to make mistakes. But you have to be quick. If you're not quick you can't get things done. Those that hurry, in so doing, will get off balance. And balance is perhaps the second most important word we have. It has to be physical, mental and moral balance in everything. So when I say be quick but don't hurry that means you've got stay under control and you've got to execute quickly…”

Deadlift weight and power clean weight are the same. Round UP to the nearest 5-pound interval if you are between natural plate selections. i.e. – a 175 pound male doing level A would round to 195 versus doing 192.5
