Today we’d like to wish a happy birthday to one of our original Intrepids who has moved away. Many of you may have had a chance to meet “the other” Nick at the Holiday Homecoming Party. Nick joined us back in the early days in the park and was a firebreather from the get-go. Even hip surgery didn’t slow him down much, as he was back with us and starting to squat only a mere month post-op (see below).
One of Nick’s goals from last year was a strict muscle-up, which I recall him achieving quite early this year. He’s also been working his way through the Henderson (NV) Fire Department academy and will be graduating in a little over a week on December 22nd, so I’d say he can check his “get to 100% capacity” goal off as well! Thankfully Nick is still able to drop in from time-to-time and is able to keep his CrossFitting up with his fellow CF-junkies in the department.
Happy birthday Nick and a huge congratulations on your impending graduation!
5 sets of the following complex:
1. Perform 7 reps of the complex without resting on the floor per set. Touch and go only for the Power Clean.
2. You can thruster the push presses from both the squats, but the first movement has to be a power clean…(no squat clean to thruster).
3. Rest as needed between sets.
4. Penalty for a bar touching the ground is 5 burpees per violation, to be paid post-WOD.
