Video courtesy of Team CrossFit USA. Some point of performance for Hollow Rocks. We’ll take the first 12 minutes of today just refining some body control movements.  The rep schemes should allow you to focus more on performing the movement efficiently rather than trying to keep a sprint pace to get done before the end of every minute.  Even if you have to cut reps back, focus here more on the movement than your time,

WOD:

“JAY”

AMRAP 20:

22 Air Squats

12 Toes-to-Bar

9 Burpees

If you have a weight vest wear it

James-Brynin-Hero WOD 8Nov21

In the early hours of 15 October 2013, the BRF deployed from Camp Bastion into the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province to counter an imminent threat to both the Afghan population and the International Security Assistance Force. Toward the end of the operation they became the target of enemy fire. Together with a sniper and machine gunner of the BRF, Lance Corporal Brynin returned fire, but while extracting from the area he received a fatal gunshot wound. “Heart of a lion, we will always stand strong for you. We will never forget. Rest in peace – dad, Efremj mum, Sharonj sister, Yasminj and girlfriend, Olivia.”
