 CrossFit Corner:  IT’S REGIONALS WEEK!  
The top 20 athletes after the CrossFit Open from each of the 17 regions qualify for the second stage of the competition—regionals. The regionals are live, three-day competitions that are held in May. The top athletes from two or three regions combine, and compete for the five qualifying spots for the CrossFit Games .

Our region is the South Region and competition starts THIS WEEKEND!   You can get tickets or watch it online.  It kicks of Friday at 8 am at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX.

We traditionally give these workouts a try at Shotgun CrossFit during this time each year.  This year Dave Castro has thrown in a twist to the workouts:  NO BARBELLS.  We will have to modify the workouts slightly to use the equipment we have at Shotgun CrossFit.  But still -- SUPER FUN!
