WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We will no longer post full WODs here.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are starting a new 16 week strength cycle based on the Juggernaut system. What we like about this system is that it is specifically designed to complement other activities/sports. We strongly encourage you not to miss any of the strength days. For unlimited members this may involve just coming in for the strength portion on some days versus doing a whole class. For those that don’t have an unlimited membership – upgrade! [If you’ve been on a Flex 13 membership for 3 months or longer, then for September and October you can upgrade for just $10 per month. Just send us an email to trainer@ftxcrossfit.com requesting the upgrade and we’ll take care of it.]

This week you will see medium to long workouts. The WODs are more body-weight with weighted movements sprinkled in throughout. This week you will see two workouts that are also great to do when travelling. We know that many of you travel and wanted to give you ideas for WODs you can repeat when you are on your own. These “Hotel” WODs are great for the box as well and hope you enjoy them this week. We highly recommend you own a jump-rope. It’s easy to pack along on any trip. We sell some for $12. Ask a trainer about getting one.

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

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We will no longer post full WODs here until we update our website.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We specifically did not program strength training per se this week in order to focus on the benchmarks. We will start a new 16 week strength cycle the following week based on the Juggernaut system.

The workouts this week are a selection of the Benchmark “Girl” workouts. Why “Girl”? Kind of like Hurricanes, these WODs are named. They are storms for your body. Why did we do a whole week of “Girl” WODs versus just a day or two? First, they are great workouts! Second, we carefully and intentionally selected very different benchmark WODs from the “Girl” list for each day this week. Monday starts with a long body-weight workout. Tuesday moves into a shorter but heavier WOD. Wednesday switches focus to medium short WOD with running in the mix. Then on Thursday we switch to a light sprint WOD with rowing in it. Friday we go long and heavy, and then on Saturday we finish with the classic burner – Fran. On various days we also have alternative options to allow people to adjust depending on their goals and how they feel. Third, we did a whole week of benchmark WODs so that everyone would get a chance to do at least 2. We did not want those that only workout 2-3x per week to miss getting a benchmark WOD in. Also, it is not our intention that you go all out all 6 days of “Girl” WODs. Depending on your recovery select wisely how many you will do at 100% effort. Remember that beginners or those that have taken a break should take it easy for first 2 weeks. Record your scores! Do not worry about where you come in relative to everyone else. Recording your scores allows you to track your progress. Remember that even if you are at the bottom of the leader-board today, if you are consistent in coming at least 3x per week over the next year, we guarantee that you will not be anywhere near the bottom next year. You have to do today what others won’t, if you want to be able to do tomorrow what others can’t.

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

WOD Summary

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
The next two weeks are off cycles until we start a new 16 week Juggernaut strength cycle. We will be doing strength movements less frequently over the next two weeks and with varied rep patterns.

The workouts this week are very varied with the first two focusing more on body-weight exercises, though they involve very different formats, i.e. rounds for time versus a chipper. Wednesday through Friday you will see Deck O Cards sandwiching a great benchmark running WOD – Kelly. We finish off the week with something unusual – a WOD where you pick the weight to be done.

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

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We will no longer post full WODs here until we update our website.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
This week we are doing a short 1 week cycle of high reps mixed in with low reps. Something varied to “confuse” the body and encourage hypertrophy.

The workouts this week are specifically designed to be done by beginners and experienced athletes alike. We’ve set it up so that you can bring friends and family that have never done what we do and join in. But there are plenty of options to allow you to still get a great workout regardless of experience or fitness level.

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

WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We will no longer post full WODs here until we update our website.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
This week we are doing something fun and different. All our strength sessions warm-up up to attempt the highest weight possible for 30 reps, but with the twist of being done to the Mobi Flower Song (Bring Sally Up). Besides being fun and different, this will hit your muscles in a different way. And this will encourage gains!

Almost all the WODs this week are partner or team workouts. Each one is a bit different and therefore we will hit a good range of exercises, muscle groups and time domains throughout the week. Given the nature of many partner or team WODs there is a bit more emphasis on sprinting (i.e. using your phosphagen ( CrP-ATP ) system). And in the middle of all this we will be running our Obstacle Course this Thursday.

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

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
None this week as we are doing Hero WOD’s throughout the week.

This week will be challenging as we will be doing hero WODs each day culminating on Saturday with our Cancer Killer Fundraiser. We have carefully selected the various Hero WODs so as to have varied movements and tax your body each day in different ways. This should allow for maximum effort for each WOD. But having said that, if you feel beat up or that you are over-training, then do take a rest day. These WODs will be a great physical challenge, but another important aspect is the mental toughness part. Hero WODs develop us beyond the physical, and that carries over to many other areas of life. We also remember the sacrifices made by these heroes. May these workouts this week be meaningful and challenging on various levels.

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

WOD

Class Wide 18:00 AMRAP

  • Burpees
  • Over-box Jumps
  • Wallballs
  • Power Cleans
  • Calorie Row

Rx: 24″/20″, 20#/14# MB, 95#/65# BB

[1 Rule: you must do reps in multiples of 10. So 10, 20, 30, etc…
Not unbroken, but before switching exercises]

Score = Total # of reps done divided by the # of participants
Example: Class completes 1,200 total reps divided by 6 = score is 200

Because the score is total reps you may do as many reps as you want of any movements and as few of any of the others. Each person has their own white board and marks every 10 reps completed. You do not have to keep score of each individual movement – just total reps. Everyone could theoretically just do burpees the whole time and it would be a valid score.

Elements

Do the class-wide team workout with the movements below:

  • Burpees
  • Step-ups 20″/16″
  • Wall-balls 10#/6#
  • Kettlebell Sumo Deadlift High Pull 30#/20#
  • Calorie Row

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 are into the third week of the current strength cycle. You will be working up to a heavy set, but then doing 1 working set after that based on that heavy set. The difference this week is that the working set is almost as heavy as the heavy set, which is going to be a challenge. This will really generate some strength gains.

This week is characterized by 3 themes: team/partner WODs, variants on classic benchmarks (Tabata This! and Helen) and simple yet effective couplets.

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

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 are into the second week of the current strength cycle. Same as last week you will be working up to a heavy set, but then doing 2 working sets after that based on that heavy set. The difference this week is that the working sets will be a bit heavier. This will really generate some strength gains.

The workouts this week are a good combination of formats ranging between chippers, interval training, for time and AMRAP. Some of the WODs are on the heavier side and some lighter and more core focused. This week has a very well-rounded aspect to it.

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