I was double-checking the last dates we performed "Part B" of Tuesday's workout below and it pulled up a throwback post and picture that I couldn't resist sharing again.

Here's a throwback to that time 3+ years ago when Arena Ready sent teams up to Sacramento to compete in both the Rx and Scaled divisions of the SacTown Throwdown competition, which (believe it or not) had an event that included burpees and spear throwing.  No joke.

Handsome Mike apparently was a ninja at throwing spears (who knew?!).  Awesome to see that everyone in this picture, except for Tyler and Mike who both moved (boo moving), is still a big part of the Arena Ready family. 

Check out how little Elodie is!

The 2016 CrossFit Games Regional Day 1 Events for the individuals have been announced (check out the workout details here)... the last time there was a heavy snatch event at Regionals it worked out pretty well for Sarah, so we're hoping for another great event to start the competition off right!  Go Sarah!

The goal is simply to work up to something heavier than to be used in Part B, focusing on speed in the snatch and overall movement quality.
