Guys’ Poker Night THIS Friday

Featured

poker-chips-cards1

The next guys night will be this Friday, August 1 at CrossFit Moontown. We’re going to setup a table or two in the lobby and play some Texas hold ‘em. This will be a friendly cash game with the buy-in set at $10, with 2 re-buys throughout the evening at $10 each. Since it’s a friendly game, you are free to buy-in/cash-out whenever you need. There will be beer and snacks provided. We’ll get things started around 645 and go for as long as everyone wants. Since we have a limited number of chairs at the gym, you may want to bring your own chair. If anyone has a nice poker tabletop or table, this would be the perfect time to show it off. Otherwise, we’re using plastic tables from Costco. I have a few sets of poker chips and two decks of nice playing cards, so we should be good there. Just bring some cash, a chair and get ready for some male bonding time at CF Moontown. See you guys there!

For this workout, the clock will be set to 36 minutes. Everyone will begin their workout on the call of “3-2-1 go”. You may begin with your bar loaded and your stations setup. You can choose to complete either the Strength or the WOD first. The Strength will take exactly 21 minutes to complete and the time cap for “Elizabeth” is 10 minutes. That leaves a minimum of 5 minutes rest between.

Strength/Skill

Every 90 seconds Power Clean 2-2-1-1-1-1-1 (10-1/2 minutes)

*Rest 3 minutes and then every other 90 second interval complete Touch-N-Go Power Clean @ 60-70% of 1 RM in the following rep scheme: 9-7-5 (7-1/2 minutes). So alternate between 90 seconds of work and 90 seconds of rest until you complete all three sets.

WOD

Power Clean, 135/95lbs
