So, we’ve all just finished five hard weeks of work with the CrossFit Open.  Therefore, we will take this week as a de-load week.  Does that mean stay home, and do absolutely nothing?  Hell no!  We will still put our bodies through the paces, but the intensity will be dialed down a slight bit.  Your focus this week will be on perfect reps each workout.  Don’t try to zoom through any of these WODs, rather feel the muscles working.  Go from point A to point B the proper way.  Don’t sacrifice form.  Get that mind-muscle memory prepped for what is coming next week….
