Don’t even think about taking it easy when there is so much going on.  We will definitely be working hard and having fun with our Saturday in the SILVERBACK NATION, the WOD is always a little different from the rest of the week  but no less challenging and no fewer laughs.

AND DON’T FORGET THE NOT REEBOK SILVERBACK NATIONALS CROSSFIT GAMES OPEN:  Check out our previous post on our in house version of the world wide games and find some like minded (and fun) people to have on your team. On a team or not you can elect to do the WOD #1 on Saturday morning.   Remember, just like the Texas Lottery, you can’t win if your don’t play, but here your odds are way better.
