Hope everyone is off to a GREAT start for the new year!

Hopefully you had a chance to review some of the notes on programming from the post on Saturday and are looking forward to “THE OPEN” prep work for the next 8 weeks! We really encourage all of our members to participate in The OPEN this year as it is a great way to continue to measure and assess progress.

Throughout these next 8 weeks we will be focusing on acquiring the skills needed for the open, but don’t worry if you are having a difficult time mastering certain movements as there is always an opportunity to scale the workouts. That being said, we will pay special attention to Muscle Ups, Handstand Push Ups, Double Unders and Kipping Pull Ups (among other skills). Lastly, be on the look out for our “IN HOUSE MINI-CLINICS” to go over the finer aspects of some of these skills coming soon.
