    You guys go ahead and finish up any work you planned for today so you can watch the American Open weightlifting meet this afternoon. It starts at around 11am. Live-stream link below.
    It’s Friday (Caturday Eve), so your boss doesn’t expect much out of you anyway.

    …and for those that don’t know…there are a few representing NC crossfit gyms. Drew Anderson, Nate Schrader, John Dill (?not sure on this one but I assume), and Ashley Denton are competing. Also rooting for muscledriver could be thought of as local weightlifting peeps, as they are training out of “Charlotte”.

      Seth, thats not entirely accurate. The oeople you mentioned are competing in a CrossFit Competetion called the Outlaw Open. The American Open is a sanctioned official Olympic Weightlifting meet where athletes will compete in the clean and jerk and the snatch.

      I should clarify that most of the crossfit competitors will be streamed tomorrow as part of the outlaw “open” competition. This is a pretty big deal for crossfit (and maybe more so for USAW) to work together and compete together.

      I’ll be cheering for MDUSA too. Pendlay’s boys are my boys.
      Also anyone associated with Cal Strength.

    D. Pestered Lei on his runs during the 6:30 class.

      Sorry I distracted you on B! Nice work Phil!

      The pestering was definitely helpful, but not as helpful as hearing K’s footsteps.

    A1. 9 @ 52# press. Feeling better about pressing since I started engaging glutes and hams. That queue didn’t click for me till recently.
    A2. Did some negatives and worked on arm mobility. Got something funky going on with it.
    C. 405 on the metcon. I need more practice snatching from the ground.
