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 is week 5 of the CrossFit Open. As far as the strength cycle goes, we’ve been on an off cycle throughout the Open. We will be doing a variety of strength variants during these weeks. This week we start off with another fun partner WOD. On Tuesday you can choose between a strength or cardio focus. On Wednesday the focus is cardio. Thursday is a no measure active rest day or cardio, and then we’ll finish out the week with 19.5! Our programming throughout the Open has been specifically designed to give you a great workout on Monday, then some options for Tuesday through Thursday while keeping you ready for whatever the Open WOD may be. It’s a balance between keeping you training and gaining on the non-Open days, while having you at optimal for the Open WOD. The Open WODs themselves are obviously also great workouts!

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!

This ought to leave you with the of energy for going all out on Friday or Saturday on the Open WOD. But, we do have the option for you to do some Burn! WODs this week in lieu of the strength focus.

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!
