1) Back Squat

2) Shoulder Press

3) Deadlift

The athlete will perform 3 attempts at all three lifts on a 45 minute running clock (post warm-up during class). The weight must increase after each successful attempt at each movement. The weight may not be decreased after the first attempt. A failed rep does not count as an attempt. Take the Back Squat and Strict Press from the weight rack. All three scored attempts for each lift will count towards your score. See example below

Foster Fit GoFundMe

Children and adolescents involved with child welfare, especially those who are removed from their family of origin and placed in out-of-home care, often present with complex and serious physical, mental health, developmental, and psychosocial problems rooted in childhood adversity and trauma.

Evidence indicates that children and adolescents fare best when raised in stable homes with nurturing environments who respond to their needs and provide reasonable structure. Children and teenagers also benefit from safe and reasonable childcare, educational and neighborhood settings with exposure to normalizing activities.

In addition, overweight and obesity rates in teens have risen dramatically in recent years and teens in these weight categories are at risk for serious future health problems. Overweight and obesity are becoming more prevalent for teens in foster care. CrossFit provides an elegant and combative approach to reversing these comorbidities. CrossFit provides a consistent & nurturing community, which has proven to improve the mental and physical health of adolescent teens and adults. Foster Fit will give teens in foster care access to the same love and support that we receive from our CrossFit friends & community.
