Reminder that we start the Warmup as a group promptly at the start of the class time! This is week 2 of Coach Mike’s programming.

This week, your coaches will warm you up using selections from the following elements/skills:
1. Rowing
2. Ring Work (inverted/skin the cat)
3. L-Sits/Planche/Hanging L-holds
4. Medball work
5. Turkish Getups
6. Handstand elements (pushups, walking, balancing)
7. Jumping Rope
8. Mobility movements based on the WOD

Today’s Warmup: Partner Medball toss competition
    -Pair up with a partner.
    -Pick a Medball (any weight…make is somewhat of a challenge).
   -Partners will start 1 mat apart from each other (4′)
   -Execute a front squat to a thruster..throwing the ball like a wallball shot
   -Your partner must catch the ball, then execute the same back to you.
   -If you both successfully catch the ball, then you each take one step back.
   -Continue until someone drops the ball or you can’t get the ball to your partner.

This week, we’ll be featuring great podcasts by Nora Gedgaudas from Primal Body Primal Mind.
We’ll start the week with an interesting topic:  Addressing nutrition to treat Autism. 
The second half of the podcast, if you’re interested in learning about it, discusses a case of neuro feedback to help an autistic child.
