December 14th - NLI III Competition
Some of your fellow 818ers will be competing in the Winter NLI event at Cal State Dominguez Hills on December 14th. They've been training hard and it should be a really fun and exciting event overall, so I strongly encourage everyone to come and watch your friends put themselves out there and test their grit! More details can be found on the Legendary Competitor website here.
December 14th - CrossFit 818 Annual Holiday Party Shenanigans Fun Times!
The night of the 14th, we'll be getting together for our Annual Holiday Party Shenanigans Fun Times! The location is still TBD (I heard a rumor our go-to dive bar closed down, but I'm working on finding a new place). Until we get the spot locked down, make sure to keep that night open! We'll announce the location ASAP, and you definitely won't wanna miss this one :)
December 28th - CrossFit 818 Annual CrossFit Total
On December 28th, the last Saturday of the year, we'll have only one regular class from 8:30AM - 9:30AM. Then at 10AM, we'll begin our Annual CrossFit Total event. In the CrossFit Total, you'll find your 1RM back squat, 1RM strict press, 1RM deadlift. We'll begin promptly at 10AM by splitting up into small groups (4-6 people), then we'll begin working to find our maxes. We'll spend about half an hour on each movement before moving on to the next so the entire thing will take about 90 minutes.
This event is included in your membership already, and it doesn't require any specific level of experience! It's a great way to see where you're at and to get started setting goals for 2014. This event is always a hit and is a lot of fun, and I can't wait to see everyone put up some BIG numbers!
As always, let me know if you have any questions.
5 rounds for time:
15 overhead squats (95/65)
