For Time: 2000 M Row 50 Pistols (Alternating Legs) 30 Hang-Cleans (225/135)
As it was mentioned yesterday, we will be scaling these workouts accordingly. If you feel confident enough to attempt this workout RX, have at it, but most of us will be cutting this one back a little bit. We would still prefer everyone to hit the prescribed number of reps, but will be modifying the Pistols and Hang-Cleans.
Here is another great video, highlighting some Pistol progressions by the intensely methodical, but extremely informative, Jon Gilson of Again Faster.
The 2012 Crossfit Games Regional competitions kicked off this weekend with the South East, South Central, and Canada West regions throwing down for a spot at the Crossfit Games in Carson, California. Our Regional athletes will be headed to Castle Rock, Colorado this weekend (May 4-6), to compete against the top athletes and teams from the South West Region, including Utah, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. We are very excited and extremely proud to be sending these competitors to represent Crossfit 801!!!
On the topic of Regionals, we know not everyone qualified, but still want the gym as a whole to experience (to some degree) what the athletes will be going up against. On that note, we are excited to announce we will be performing most of the Regional workouts during this week’s group classes! Worry not, we will scale, modify, and substitute accordingly! This should be a lot of fun!
Both movements are scalable, as always, and we will be sure to review each in detail prior to beginning the workout. Additionally, here is a great video from the good folks over at Practice Crossfit on Handstand Push-Ups and the many different variations and progressions usable for today’s WOD.

Our mission here is simple: Help others live better and realize their potential. We believe that there are many different ways to achieve fitness and lifestyle goals. Our goal is to be the premier facility in the Salt Lake valley for people to make and achieve such goals. Renaming the facility to Phenix (which is the ancient greek spelling of the mythological bird) represents not only our own phoenician-like journey (burning and rising anew from the ashes), but also what we want for our clients. Burn down your old self, recreate/redefine/renew who you are.
