Week 5! This cycle will focus on building a base for the CrossFit Open, for those unfamiliar with the Open,  you can call this an endurance cycle.

For the entirety of this cycle we will be following this pattern:
On Mondays we will Squat 10/5/3 and work on unbroken movement
On Tuesdays we will focus on gymnastic skills
On Wednesdays we will have long emoms (with an emphasis on one skill)
On Thursdays we will have long “Sunday” workouts
On Fridays we will deadlift
On Saturdays we will workout with a partner
On Sundays as always, we will do a long workout.

As always, scaling Options for Class:
L1- A beginner CrossFitter, those that are looking for more cardio based fitness, or someone just returning after a long break. This programming is designed to keep up the intensity during the workout while maintaining consistent movement and proper mechanics.
L2- 50% of CrossFit athletes. L2 Athletes have an understanding of all the foundational movements of CrossFit, how to scale them, and are working towards adding load, increasing mobility or increasing their gymnastics skill base.
Rx- A CrossFit Athlete who understands the foundational movements of CrossFit, moves with proper mechanics while under load, and can do 90% of programmed workouts without scaling.
Competition (Rx+) For the Competitive CrossFitter or those looking to compete in the sport of CrossFit. This person can regularly move with high intensity, proper mechanics, and consistency through all programmed workouts.
