Advice From Our Coaches:
This workout is designed to be aerobic and light weight to keep you moving. Try to keep the snatches unbroken, or 2-3 sets when the fatigue sets in. But try to hang on, push past your limits, and don’t forget to enjoy the process!

#FEARLESSFRIDAY; CFML’S CALORIE TORCHING, MUSCLE BUILDING WORKOUT OF THE WEEK:
20 Burpees Over Rower
Advice from our coaches:
1. This is a grinder style workout. Push the run and row, but the goal is to find a pace that you can keep over the three rounds.
2. Scale the # of burpees to 15 or 12 if they are taking you more than 2:30 minutes to complete.
Shout out to Plymouth Meeting member Amanda Marshall for her lifetime PR on last Tuesday’s 2 rep max deadlift at 295! What an accomplishment!
Shoutout to Jill Hall from Plymouth Meeting for competing in the American Open Finals. She competed on Saturday on the blue platform and came in second place in her weight class! We’re so proud of you Jill!
Shoutout to Terri Gartenberg from Ardmore for competing in the World Championships! She took home the gold in her weight class! Congratulations!

What To Eat Before and After Workouts
You’ve got a killer WOD coming up in a few hours… you’re ready to fuel up… but what should you eat to make sure you get a great workout in? It’s a common question, and RP has an answer for you.
Your Turn Over for Ring Muscle Ups
Practicing your turn over for ring muscle ups can be tough because it’s rather difficult to practice them all the way up at the top of the rings. Use these progressions to master the turn over and dip out of your muscle ups.
How to Quit Bumping Cleans Forward
You’re pulling the barbell from the floor… you open your hips… suddenly the bar is way out in front of you and you are chasing it forward to catch it. What happened? Probably one of these common mistakes you didn’t know you were making!
JUMP DON’T BUMP.
