Happy MLK Day!
Despite today being a day off from work for many folks, we’re operating on a regular Monday schedule. Come on down to the gym and kick your own butt, whether you have the day off or not, and if you do have the day off, come try one of our new 10am or 3pm classes!
Five rounds of:
15′ Rope climb, max reps in 3 minutes
Post reps for each round to comments.
Hari’s commentary on today’s workout: Obviously we won’t be doing 15-foot rope climbs with our 9-foot ceilings. We will be teaching the traditional substitution (towel pull-ups and/or one-ring pull-ups) as well as related skills. If you have a hand towel or a dish towel, please bring it.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERIC! (plus belated wishes to H.L. & DAVID R.!)

Hari’s commentary on last Friday’s CAINgames:
I had the pleasure of being completely uninvolved in running last Friday’s Cain Games. When Chris came to us with his proposal, we used an extremely advanced management technique: faced with a highly competent individual completely capable of making something happen, we told him go ahead and let us know if he needed anything. He didn’t. And so on Friday, I was completely free to watch. Here’s what I saw. (commentary continues in first comment, below)

What made the CAINgames so much fun was YOU, the crowd! Here are two shots of the crowd, courtesy of member Steven W.:
And here’s a shot of Sophie, managing to look good while kicking ass at double-unders during the CAINgames. Sophie’s bringing us our next big event, the Friday Night Faceoff, on January 28th. Mark your calendars!
