Hari’s commentary on today’s workout:
You’d be foolish to miss today’s WOD.
You need to learn the Olympic Lifts. You need to know your one-rep max on the snatch, the clean, and the jerk, and then you need to increase those numbers. Get started today.
(Did you take advantage of the Rest Day instruction on Snatches and Cleans? If not, the cycle will be restarting in about a month. Still to come before we restart will be work on the jerk) (commentary continues in first comment…)
IMPORTANT SCHEDULING NOTE: Effective Monday, October 4, Open Gym will start at 7:30 PM (thirty minutes later than the current start).
