Post Row Time and Back Squat Loads to Comments
Today’s workout comes from the CrossFit Main Page workout from May 9, 2001.

Row EASY during the warmup.  Work on getting your technique locked in.  Take a short rest, get off the rower, before going for the 1k for time.  

For the Back Squats, warm up with a couple of sets and then go for all out effort for each of the three work sets.  New 1RM?  Ring the bell AND put it on December’s PR Board!

There is no OPEN GYM tonight, but the gym will be open until 7:30.
