On the Wall Balls for Rx+ both partners squat each time, i.e. each partner will throw ball 15 times but squat 30 times. On Rx only the partner with the ball will squat, i.e. each partner will alternate squatting and throwing ball, which will result in each partner doing 15 wall balls per round.
If need be, scale the wheelbarrow with a bear crawl where both partners bear crawl 100ft.

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post the next day’s WOD here the day before.

This week is our final week of a variant of the 5-3-1 strength cycle. One difference has been that instead of back squats, we’ve been working on front squats on this cycle.

Let’s start our WOD summary by mentioning that we are finishing this week with… drum roll please… Murph! And we’ll have plenty of options for all levels! Now for the rest of the week, we’ve been getting a lot of requests for more partner WODs and we are happy to deliver. And Monday’s partner WOD involves wheel barrows, which is a movement we haven’t done in a long time. And then Tuesday’s partner WOD, yes a double treat this week, involves the bike, burpees and bag cleans (That will be a good one!). Wednesday and Thursday will be some good short to medium length metcons. On Wednesday we are introducing a different jumping exercise for a good variance on a very functional movement. Friday we will focus on the Snatch, but if you want to avoid the barbell you’ll be able to do a great Elements cardio WOD.

We hope you enjoy this week of functional, constantly varied workouts done at an appropriate level of intensity. As always – train smart!

A note on our Elements WODs:

The main goal for Elements is to avoid barbells, complex movements and heavy weights.

We keep the Elements WOD as close to the main WOD as possible. This is so our trainers can reasonably demonstrate, teach and coach all the movements involved, and to keep logistics reasonable. Elements isn’t purely a beginner or scaled version. Though we try to keep it similar to the main WOD, it can be very different sometimes, and at times Elements is in some respects “harder” than the main WOD. Our Elements WODs were never intended to be a totally alternate training program.

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post the next day’s WOD here the day before.

This week is our second week of a variant of the 5-3-1 strength cycle. One difference is that instead of back squats, we will be working on front squats on this cycle.

Today there are quite a few boxes that have been around for well over 5 years. We’ve now been around for almost 8 years, and we have some members that have been with us since the very beginning. Doing CrossFit consistently and over time has led to people continuously challenging the impossible. What once was considered amazing is now commonplace in boxes around the world. An example of this is the muscle-up. In the 2009 CrossFit Games Annie Thorisdottir first learned do a Muscle-up. Today most boxes have multiple people that can string muscle-ups together. And forget getting to the Games now if you can’t do dozens of muscle-ups at a crazy pace in any given WOD.
 
Back in the early days of CrossFit everyone was new and trying to learn. Today we have significantly different skill levels in our classes. One of the great things about CrossFit is that absolutely anyone can do it with the proper scaling and modifications. We have members from 3 to 70+ years old, and we have professional / collegiate level athletes to beginners that haven’t worked out in over a decade. One thing to keep in mind is that you can’t always tell just by looking at some people where they are on their CrossFit journey. It can be deceiving. We have average people who’ve been coming consistently for years that can now do some amazing things. It is not easy to effectively and safely program workouts for this entire range of members, but we at FTX CrossFit have been doing so for years. One challenge is to manage expectations, especially of newer members. In today’s society we want instant gratification, but that is not how most of life works. And this is definitely true for CrossFit. This week, as we’ve been doing for a few weeks now, there are some pretty challenging WODs, especially at the Rx+ level. Please leave your ego at the door and train smart. Everything we post is a goal / guideline. You have to know when to scale, adapt or modify. If you have any doubts whatsoever, please talk to our trainers. They are there to help and guide you! Do not be discouraged if you can’t do a WOD at Rx+ or Rx. You may be able to do Rx on day, Rx+ another and totally have to scale the next. That is OK! The secret sauce to all of this is consistency and to exert the right amount of intensity each time you come in. You do the consistent work in a smart way and the results will come!

As always – train smart!

A note on our Elements WODs:

The main goal for Elements is to avoid barbells, complex movements and heavy weights.

We keep the Elements WOD as close to the main WOD as possible. This is so our trainers can reasonably demonstrate, teach and coach all the movements involved, and to keep logistics reasonable. Elements isn’t purely a beginner or scaled version. Though we try to keep it similar to the main WOD, it can be very different sometimes, and at times Elements is in some respects “harder” than the main WOD. Our Elements WODs were never intended to be a totally alternate training program.

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post the next day’s WOD here the day before.

This week start a new variant of the 5-3-1 strength cycle. One difference is that instead of back squats, we will be working on front squats on this cycle.

One of the things that makes CrossFit so effective is doing workouts at intensity with weight. Stressing the skeletal and muscular system with a load bring about much great results than doing the same movements with little or no weight. This is a distinguishing trait between what we do and what many others do, especially those national fitness chains. But the key to doing this safely and successfully lies in following these 3 principles:

  • Ensure your technique is correct through the full range of motion
  • That this is as true for rep 1 as it is for rep 100
  • You don’t increase in weight and speed unless the first 2 are adhered to

This week, as in some of the past few weeks, there are some WODs where the Rx and Rx+ weights are pretty heavy. Please leave your ego at the door. Rx and Rx+ are just targets/goals. You need to pick the right weight for you for each of these WODs. The weights for the WODs this week should really not be more than 70-80% of your 1RM. If you are a beginner, then this should really be even lower at around 50-60%. If you’ve been doing this for a long time, but not consistently, then you shouldn’t go above 60-70%. Please keep this in mind as you consider these WODs. Our goal here is to stretch some of you that are ready to go heavier here and there. It is definitely not our goal for anyone to go overboard and get hurt.

As always – train smart!

So what does it mean to be constantly varied?

One of the tenets of CrossFit is to “Regularly learn and play new sports”.
Why do we do what we do? It’s to live life to the fullest. What is the point of doing all this work and not using it to enjoy life? Part of why CrossFit is so awesome is that if someone where to come to you and say, “Hey, let’s go do _________!”, you are physically fit enough to be able to say “Yes” to whatever is being suggested. Could you tomorrow go on a 10-mile hike through the Rockies? What if someone invited you to go Scuba Diving in the Bahamas? How about a 5K obstacle course race? Play a soccer game with your church youth group? Whatever it is, the answer shouldn’t be, “Uh. I don’t think I could do that.” The answer should be, “Yeah, heck, why not? That sounds like fun!”

This Saturday we are doing something different! All our classes will be Yoga. Male or female, young or more mature, we expect to see you at our classes. Hey, you might discover and learn something new!

Snatch
8-5-3-3 / 1-1-1-1-1
BB-50-65-80 / 90-95-PR-PR-PR
To have time for WOD, you’ll probably skip sets of 1. Those really focusing on developing their Snatch today will probably need to skip the WOD.

WOD

To really work on Snatch, you may have to skip WOD. If you want to do the WOD, then you’ll probably need to skip the sets of 1 in the Snatch today.

[50]-40-30-20-10 reps for time of: (Cap 15:00)
Wall-ball 20/14 @ 10’/9′
Box jumps 24/20″

If you don’t finish in 15:00, add +:01 per rep not finished. It’s going to be real tough to finish Rx+ in 15:00.

Rx = 40-30-20-10 reps / Allowed to do step-ups
Rx+ = 50-40-30-20-10 reps / Can’t do step-ups
Don’t do Rx+ unless you think you can complete in 15:00, i.e. your Karen time is 6:00 or less

On Nov. 5 at 1:34 p.m., a terrorist named Major Nidal Hasan attacked fellow soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood, Texas. When the shooting ended, he had killed 12 soldiers and one civilian and wounded 43 others.

Spc. Frederick Greene, 29, of Mountain City, Tennessee, Pfc. Aaron Thomas Nemelka, 19, of West Jordan, Utah, Pfc. Michael Pearson, 22, of Bolingbrook, Illinois, and Spc. Kham Xiong, 23, of St. Paul, Minnesota, along with eleven of the wounded were active CrossFitters in the 20th Engineer Battalion, home to Lumberjack CrossFit.

This workout is in honor of these soldiers, one month after the murderous rampage.

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post the next day’s WOD here the day before.

This week we are off cycle on strength and will be focusing on other movements. On Monday we are doing the OHS which is great for focusing on overall strength, including core and mid-line stabilization, and range-of-motion. The OHS is probably one of the best tests of your mechanics and ROM. Tuesday will challenge your gymnastics skills, which are great for overall physical strength and well-being. And on Tuesday we will also do heavy Thrusters! Wednesday will see us testing our jumping abilities, which is another skill that’s about as functional as functional gets. Thursday has no separate strength as the WOD itself offers plenty and is a long one. Friday will give us an opportunity to work on the Snatch. The Olympic lifts have no equal when it comes to developing overall power.

Last week we saw a lot of running, we are backing off this week to give you a chance to recover. This week you will get a pretty good variety of WODs. On Saturday we are doing something very different – all classes will be Yoga! One of the tenets of CrossFit is to try new things. You will benefit from this.

It is our hope you enjoy this week’s programming of functional movements that are constantly varied and meant to be done at high intensity. Keep in mind that quality of movement and range of motion come before going heavier and faster. Train smart!

U.S. Navy Lt. J. Wesley “Wes” Van Dorn, 29, of Greensboro, North Carolina, died on Jan. 8, 2014, of injuries sustained in a helicopter crash off the coast of Virginia. He was a member of Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron 14 at the Naval Air Station in Norfolk, Virginia.

Van Dorn was a well-rounded and skilled athlete. According to his friends, he “prided himself on his ability to lift huge weight with the big guys and run with the smaller ones.“

Van Dorn is survived by his wife, Nicole; sons, Jaxton and Maddox; parents, Mark and Susan; brother, Max; and sister, Cara.

Rest 1:00
Then go run 400m in under 2:00/2:15 [1:45/2:00]
Rest 1:00

(In inclement weather, do a .75 mile bike instead of 400m run)

[Rx+ times]

Talk to our trainers for scaling and setting an appropriate goal if you can’t row sub-1:45/2:00.

Score each round separately = # of seconds you rowed sub the indicated time + # of seconds you ran under the 400m time cap. Enter # of seconds as reps.

Do NOT be discouraged if you can’t run or row at these paces. Make it a goal, whether short or long-term to get there or as close as possible. Running is about as functional a movement as functional gets. We should be able to run for short, medium and long distances. We should be able to run carrying nothing or under load. Keep working. Keep improving. Keep at it! Do the best you can today, and if your score is 0, then so be it. The win is that you did it. If you keep it up with consistency, then you will get better!

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We’ll post the next day’s WOD here the day before.

We finish our current strength cycle on Monday with back squats, then you’ll see a mix of Olympic lifts (or components thereof) and DB lifts for the next couple of weeks until we resume a new strength cycle. Now that we have nicer weather, we are focusing this week on running – lot’s of running! Mixed into the running you will see quite a bit of gymnastics movements and heavier than usual lifts in the WODs. One of the things that makes CrossFit so effective is doing weight at speed, but form and range of motion are the priority. Do NOT go heavy on these WODs unless you’ve been training consistently with good mechanics and mobility. Leave your EGO at the door. You do not have to go Rx, and much less Rx+, every time. You are not less of an athlete if you scale, modify or adapt – that is call training smart! Bob modifies his WODs here and there for optimal workouts. Be like Bob!

It is our hope you enjoy this week’s programming of functional movements that are constantly varied and meant to be done at high intensity. Keep in mind that quality of movement and range of motion come before going heavier and faster. Train smart!
