Workout of the Day: 3/27/17 - 4/2/17

We are finally back to our regular programming after an exciting 5 weeks of the CrossFit Open. During the next couple of months, we will be focusing on improving our pushing and pulling strength, especially as it pertains to getting better at strict pull-ups and pushups. We will also be working on some skill pieces for kipping pull-ups, muscle-ups, toes-to-bar, etc. It's going to be awesome!
