Our next monthly cause!
This June, we are partnering with buildOn to provide bricks to build schools in developing nations! Every 6 check-ins will provide one brick to build a school in Malawi!
The hashtag this month is #bricks4schools.
buildOn’s mission is to build schools in villages that historically have had no adequate school structure. buildOn has built more than 1000 schools in seven countries around the world: Burkina Faso, Haiti, Mali, Malawi, Nepal, Nicaragua and Senegal. This month, check-ins at our location are going towards building a school in Malawi.

WOD 2 – 5:00-10:00 “Bring Sally Up” w/ plank
Same as above except now the plank. RX- you can never touch your knees or allow your booty to be high in the air. Watch video below. (plank on elbows, then up to hands and back down accordingly)
*Scaling – either try to complete as written and scale as you go, touching your knees occasionally and skipping reps OR complete this on your knees and elbows and move back and forth to your hands OR stay on your knees and hands the whole time (abmat under knees if it hurts), and rest as needed
