3.20 - 3.26

Four weeks down and one more to go in the 2017 CrossFit Open! Holy moly! Way to go in the repeat workout from 2016. It was great to see so many people increase their scores and blast through those deadlifts. Awesome work all around.

**We highly recommend doing 16.4 no more than two times, if that. If you are considering doing it on Monday, please make sure you are fully recovered from your previous attempt.** 

This week we continue to put all of our previous strength work to action. Manage your recovery well throughout the week. It is MUCH better to take a day off from training and mobilize than grinding through another workout while your body is still recovering. Be smart and talk to your coaches. Scale movements and WODs as needed.
