CrossFit for "Hope"

Saturday, June 9th

There is a special event being planned for all Philadelphia affiliates click here to register for the Philadelphia event.  If you cannot attend this event, CFKoP will run the WOD as the daily WOD at 9AM/10AM for your convenience. It is not mandatory to make a donation, but there will be a jar out the day of the event and all donations are appreciated. 

To Register online for donations:
Sign up or contribute here.

What is the WOD: 
Three rounds of:
75 pound Power snatch
Box jump, 24" box
75 pound Thruster
Chest to bar Pull-ups

"Hope" has the same format as Fight Gone Bad. In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On call of "rotate," the athlete/s must move to next station immediately for good score. One point is given for each rep.

What about scaling?
Of course there's scaling! That's why CrossFit is inclusive for everyone. When we do this workout on June 9th, we'll scale the loads down, boxes down, and pullup styles down by lane.

How should I keep score?
On a piece of paper, create four columns. Column one contains a list of the five movements, columns two through four will track with rounds one, two, and three. As you move from station to station, just write in the number of reps. Total at the end for score.
During the June 9th running of this workout, each of you will have a partner assigned to push you and keep score on your behalf.

I would STRONGLY encourage as many people as possible to go to the event being held by Micah and CF 215. It is a good chance to show the support of our affiliate to the local CF community and you will also push harder in the presence of strangers. I will be heading there as soon as I finish up with classes.
