Test week looked like it was super fun and with some big numbers! I’m bummed I was out of town and missed all those lifts and seeing those PRs. Well done everyone, awesome to see everyone continue to improve little by little.  Our new cycle will have tests down the road as well.  
Congrats to Jess for winning the CrossFit Games Fantasy Pick ‘Em. She won $25 to Whole Foods! Cordis, same to you for your epic Uncle Sam costume. Pick up at the box this week. 
Programming wise, next week begins a new training cycle! We will focus a lot on barbell cycling and strength endurance. You’ll notice more advanced gymnastics movements as well as more moderate volume (although we’ll get to some 100 rep benchmarks down the road).  We start this week with some squats and end with them as well.  
September 1st we’ll host the national CrossFit Kids event, Saved by the Barbell.  We will be an official host, and you can sign up here if you’d like to get a shirt and donate. All proceeds go to fund programs for kids.  https://www.crossfit.com/foundation/crossfitforkids 
Barbell Club will start up again after Labor Day. This time, we’ll also be adding morning sessions in an “express” version of BBC with Coach Doza. More info to come soon! 
This month’s challenge is wintry theme, most meters skied on the SkiErg.  With 2 skiers, limit yourself to 500M unless no one is waiting, then keep on skiing!
