Rest day protocol, as pioneered by Justin Marcis of WCCF,  will serve as an opportunity to make-up a missed workout from the week’s programing, as well as work on basic skills. In addition to that, we will be instituting regular use of MobilityWOD, a blog by CrossFit icon, Kelly Starrett, DPT of  CrossFit San Francisco. CF312 is open normal hours on ‘rest days’ and follows the same class structure and time slots.
