Any prescribed weight on the KB Cross Chops? I looked back to the last time we did them and didn't see a weight there either.

We all know that Jazzercise is the future for Crossfit affiliates! With Robb leading the charge how could it fail.

It does look like some good DROM warm ups

My wife went to some Jazzercise classes this week (they give a week free)--I'll be honest, the smile on her face is totally worth me keeping my mouth shut. That and she hated doing joint mobility with me! "Too boring, when do we work out?"

As long as she does some strength training to go along with it, it's all good to me...

Rugby match tomorrow so did tomorrow's today. Didn't push to limit.

Mobility drills
Snatch to 65kg
Clean and jerk to 90kg
Squat to 130kg
Windmills 2 x 5/side @10kg

It's becoming painfully clear that my thoracic mobility and hence shoulder flexibility leaves a lot to be desired. I guess Robb's article came just in time.
