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….

If you don’t have Handstand Walks, DO NOT skip this one.  We have some drills that will get you that much closer to getting there.  It’s all about the progression.
