A Tip For Today
With all the movements being extremely hip intensive today, the gymnastics movements will be under pressure!  Remember what we have been working on for the past six weeks with your kipping, hollow, and arch positions.  If you can think about getting long on your toes to bar and muscle ups (or pull ups) your momentum from your kip will make them smoother and faster with less effort.

Corporal Ryan C. McGhee, 21, was killed in action on May 13, 2009 by small arms fire during combat in central Iraq. He served with 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment of Fort Benning, Ga. This was his fourth deployment, his first to Iraq. Ryan was engaged to Ashleigh Mitchell of Fredericksburg, VA. He is survived by his father Steven McGhee of Myrtle Beach S.C., his mother Sherrie Battle McGhee, and his brother Zachary.

A Tip For Today
Thirty minutes is like a CrossFit marathon.  Starting this out like a sprint will soon see your partner doing more work than needed.  Move at a pace that keeps you moving the entire workout with the goal of picking up the pace at the end.

A Tip For Today
Life is short.  Be nicer.  Love more.  Stop hating.  Stop gossiping.  Stop complaining. Stop being mean to others.  Have more respect.  Say "thank you" more.  Show appreciation more.  You always hear "you never know when your life will change."  That is true, however, no one ever thinks it will happen to them.  Then one day, it does.  You lose that job.  You suffer a loss.  You receive that diagnosis.  THEN, your eyes open.  There is no reason why you cannot be a good person without having "that thing" happen to you.  Take care of yourself.  Take care of others.  Life is short.

A Tip For Today
The barbell is going to be where you either make up the most time or waste the most time.  This weight should be able to be done in multiples, if not unbroken.  If you move to singles, they should be very fast singles.  The hard part about dropping a barbell is having the mental strength to pick it back up and not step away.  Hang on for as long as you can.  You can pace out the rest of the workout to catch your breath.

Power

15:00 to find a Deadlift 1 RM

Accessories
2 Rounds:
1a) 10 Weighted Hip Bridges
1b) 15 per Leg Lateral Step Ups (no weight)

WOD
"C"
For Time:
100 KB Swings (1.5/1)

A Tip For Today
Your ability to do large sets will be directly related to your breathing.  If you can find a pattern to your breathing, you will be able to hang on longer and be more relaxed throughout the movement.  Holding your breath leads to oxygen deprivation causing your heart rate to rise to your muscles to tense up sooner.
