02/23/17: 17.1 Announced tonight @ 8pm

The first workout of the 2017 CrossFit Open is announced tonight, Thursday 02/23, @ 8pm. Quick recap on what the “CrossFit Open” is.  It is an online competition where you complete five workouts over the course of five weeks, have your performance judged, submit scores online, and see how you compare to over 100,000 CrossFitters all across the world.  We encourage as many of you as possible to sign up for the open to challenge yourself, set a goal for yourself, and give your fitness a benchmark so you can become fitter over the next year.  There is no failing in the open.  There is both an RX and Scaled division along with age classes starting @ 35.  We host the workouts on Saturday mornings starting @ 9am.  The Saturday 7am/8am workouts will be some variation of the Open workout, but will not be judged.  If you have never done the Open or been to 908 on a Saturday during the Open, we highly suggest you come see what it is all about.  It is an amazing environment filled with energy, encouragement, and camaraderie.  You will experience the truly amazing positive power of our outstanding community.  I promise you that you will be proud of yourself for taking on the Open.  We hope you sign up today and register under CrossFit 908 for both your affiliate and team.  Sign up here. Thanks!

Tonight’s specialty course will be on the overhead squat.  We will start with an extensive mobility warm up, and then focus on proper positioning throughout the squat.
