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:
In February we will start a new strength cycle for 2 months. In the meantime, we will continue doing a mixed variety of our traditional strength exercises with others, especially skill-work on gymnastics, rope climbing and double-under work. This week you will see:

  • Monday – Back Squat
  • Tuesday – Handstand Walk Skill-work
  • Wednesday – Rope Climb & Double-under skill-work
  • Thursday – Long cardio w/ no strength work.
  • Friday – KB C&J
  • Saturday – None. WOD itself is pretty heavy.

You will get a pretty good variety of movements this week. This week, more than most, will allow many to work out more days in a row than usual without feeling too sore in any one area. Most of the workouts are 15-20 minutes long, with Thursday being even longer. On Friday we will introduce you all to an IKFF (International Kettlebell and Fitness Federation) event – the 5 minute Long-cycle. It’s always fun to try something new!
Primary muscles hit by this week’s WODs:
– Monday – Posterior chain and Shoulders
– Tuesday – Lats, chest and legs
– Wednesday – Posterior chain, shoulders, chest and legs
– Thursday – Cardio
– Friday – Shoulders and core
– Saturday – Full-body

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
In February we will start a new strength cycle for 2 months. In the meantime, we will continue doing a mixed variety of our traditional strength exercises with others. This week you will see:

  • Monday – Shoulder Press
  • Tuesday – OH Squats
  • Wednesday – Double DB Deadlift
  • Thursday – Weighted Pull-ups
  • Friday – Bench Press (Skip this if Wed and Thu took their toll)
  • Saturday – None, though we do offer the option of an accessory work cash-out after the WOD.

During this week you will see a lot of triplets, i.e. WODs with 3 movements. Triplets focus the workout on fewer body parts than chippers or other WODs that have more movements, but allow the workout to be programmed in such a way as to give body parts more rest between sets than in a couplet.
We start the week with a medium long cardio/body-weight triplet. Tuesday is a Tabata chipper with a 10 different movements. These two workouts should give us a great workout (especially in the cardio arena), but they shouldn’t beat us up too much. But the next two days will ramp things up. On Wednesday we’ll hit you with a triplet that involves heavier squat snatches, and Thursday is an even harder triplet. Friday’s WOD is a hard workout with 4 movements, but we ease off a bit as it involves more sustainable exercises. Saturday we go back to a Hero WOD triplet.
This week is a balance of lighter, medium heavy and heavy WODs.

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

In February we will start a new strength cycle for 2 months. In the meantime, we will continue doing a mixed variety of our traditional strength exercises with others. This week you will see:

  • Monday – HSPUs / Handstand Walks
  • Tuesday – Front Squats
  • Wednesday – Bench Press
  • Thursday – L-sit Pull-ups
  • Friday – None. WOD is a long one.
  • Saturday – This will be a “no measure” day with several strength movements – Pull-ups, bent-over rows, deficit dead-lifts and curls.

We start the week with a 20 minute AMRAP that heavily emphasizes gymnastics / body-weight movements. Tuesday is a pyramid chipper that is a good mix of cardio, body-weight and core movements. Both Monday and Tuesday will tax your oxidative energy pathway (cardio). Wednesday is a shorter workout that involves medium weights. Thursday is a longer workout that has light to medium weight. Friday is “The Seven” Hero WOD. This is a tough WOD that involves short sets of 7 reps each with heavy weights intermixed with body-weight movements. On Saturday we slow the pace down with a no measure day focusing on accessory work, which will feel great after Friday.

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:
For the remainder of the year we are doing a variety of movements and lifts. This week you will see the Sots Press and weighted pull-ups mixed in. The Sots Press is a pretty advanced strength exercise as it requires the ability to have a very stable bottom squat position with full range of motion, while also having full shoulder mobility and great core stabilization. It’s an exercise that will challenge many.

We are finishing out 2019 on Monday with a fun partner chipper and on Tuesday with the same Hero WOD (Brehm) we did last year on 12/31. We will all have a day off on Wednesday as we celebrate the arrival of 2020. Then, as we do every year, we will welcome the New Year with the quintessential CrossFit workout – Fran. On Friday we will do a FGB style WOD as these are always popular and a great workout. On Saturday we will do three 8:00 AMRAPs that will work the whole body.

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
For the remainder of the year we are doing a variety of movements and lifts.

Consider this week a little bit of an off week. It is good throughout the year to every once in a while focus a bit more on recovery. We recommend you take time on the 24th and/or 25th do some extra stretching and/or SMR at home. Your body will thank you.

Kettlebells are an important and versatile tool for strength and fitness. This Monday we start off with a great KB WOD.
Enjoy having Tuesday and Wednesday off.
On Thursday we pick up with a triplet that will require you to determine at what weight you are able to do the most work. If you go too light, then you won’t maximize the amount of work performed. If you go too heavy, then you will be inefficient. Work capacity and power output is something we continually try to develop with our training.
On Friday we will work on our varying comfort and abilities to do work while upside down in the skillwork. The WOD is a combo of taxing the upper-body first and then working the lower-body. It is a one-two punch WOD.
Saturday we will work on pull-up to M/U progressions for the skillwork. This is followed by an AMRAP that focuses on cardio mixed in with medium heavy weight.

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
Our last strength cycle involved hundreds of PRs. Just in the last week we saw over 60 PRs from you all! Great work! This week we are doing some strength interval training. Then for the next few weeks, until the New Year, we will be doing other strength lifts.

One of the 3 CrossFit principles is “constantly varied”, and on Monday we will see that put into practice with a WOD that will get your legs and chest burning. Tuesday will be an AMRAP with a mix of gymnastics, strength and core. Wednesday we will do our other famous version of the 12 Days of Christmas. It’s always fun to do the two variants. Thursday we will do a more strength based workout. Friday is a classic triplet with a twist that will work your posterior chain, lats, cardio and mental toughness. And Saturday is a chipper that will work the shoulders like nobody’s business.

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

Some of you will still be squeezing in 20.5 on Monday, but otherwise we are done with another great Open. It was a blast “Making every rep count”! The team spirit was palatable and you could really feel the difference.

Monday kicks off with our classic FTX Veteran’s Day WOD. Thank you to all our FTXers that have served! Freedom is not cheap and we appreciate your service! Tuesday and Thursday are longer WODs focused on running, rowing and biking. Wednesday is sandwiched in between with a shorter typical CrossFit triplet of pull-ups, burpees and cleans. On Friday we’ll be doing the classic FGB benchmark WOD. Saturday finishes out the week with a 10 round EOMOM of Thrusters and rope work.

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 into the 12th week of a 16 week strength cycle based on the Juggernaut system. This week is an off-week and we’ll be doing other movements this week. What we like about this system is that it is specifically designed to complement other activities/sports.

20.1 – 20.4 are done. 1 left! 20.5 will be announced Thursday evening. We now have already had most of the usual Open movements, and a new one – pistols! Given the history of the Open, we will most likely not see them repeated in the final WOD. But you never know! Be prepared to see Pull-ups/C2B/MUs. We will be working on these movements twice this week in anticipation of those showing up in 20.5. Don’t overdo it when working on those this week. For those doing them Tuesday, you should be recovered by the weekend. For those doing them on Thursday, work more on technique and efficiency versus going all out as you probably won’t recover by Friday or Saturday.

Monday kicks of with some shoulder work and a solid triplet. This week we have two Fight Gone Bad variants. One on Tuesday and one on Friday/Saturday (our alternate to the Open), but with very different movements. Wednesday is interval training with deadlifts and jumping, which is a great combination due to the use of the same muscles in very different ways. Deadlifts are slow-twitch and require strength. Jumping is fast-twitch and requires speed and power. On Thursday we will have a special WOD programmed by Coach Peter. Please use this time just to think of his family and pray for his battle with cancer. And of course, on Friday and Saturday we’ll close out the Open with 20.5!

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the 11th week of a 16 week strength cycle based on the Juggernaut system. This is the final week of the 3rd phase and we’ll be maxing out reps at an 85% of our 1RM. What we like about this system is that it is specifically designed to complement other activities/sports.

We are past the 1/2 way mark. 2 left! 20.4 will be announced Thursday evening. We now have already had a lot of movements, and given the history of the Open, we will most likely not see them repeated in the remaining WODs. But you never know! Be prepared to see Pull-ups/C2B/MUs.

Monday starts off with a longer chipper. From there we switch to a Tabata on Tuesday. We tax your oxidative/cardio system on Monday, your phosphagen and glycolytic systems on Tuesday, back to your oxidative/cardio system on Wednesday and Thursday, and Friday goes back to your glycolytic system. Wednesday is a WOD that will keep you moving and gasping for air. Thursday’s couplet will be a burn. Friday will test your ability sprint and recharge/recover. On Saturday we will be crushing 20.4!

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the 10th week of a 16 week strength cycle based on the Juggernaut system. This week we build up during this 3rd phase of our 16 week cycle. What we like about this system is that it is specifically designed to complement other activities/sports.

With 20.1 and 20.2 we have two burners are in the books! 20.3 will be announced Thursday evening. We now have a few movements behind us that we will most likely not see repeated in the 3 remaining workouts, but you never know! But be prepared to see HSPUs and Pull-ups/C2B/MUs coming up. We will be working on some of these movements this week in anticipation of those showing up in the coming weeks.

Monday starts with us doing a triple combo of our Intros. All of you have done these in the past, and can remember how hard they were the first time around. Those that have been with us now for a while will be able to do all 3 in one day! What a change that is from when many of you were barely able to complete 1! Tuesday is a Tabata with a good mix of movements. Wednesday’s death by squat cleans will tax the full body! Thursday is a quick burner, which should allow for you to spend extra time stretching or doing SMR in preparation for a strong 20.3 performance. Friday is a fun partner WOD. On Saturday we’ll do 20.3!

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the 9th week of a 16 week strength cycle based on the Juggernaut system. This week we begin the sets of 5, which will go for 3 weeks. What we like about this system is that it is specifically designed to complement other activities/sports.

20.1 is on! And 20.2 will be announced Thursday evening. Burpees are probably now behind us for the Open. Most likely we will still see double-unders, HSPUs, T2Bs and Pull-ups/C2B/MUs. We will be working on some of these movements this week in anticipation of those showing up in the coming weeks.

Monday starts with some heavy lifting combined with some short glycolic bursts of energy. Tuesday is the classic Filthy Fifty that has just about a bit of everything. On Wednesday we bring the deck of cards with a good mix of lower body and upper body movements. Thursday and Friday are fun partner WODs. One involves some core work combined with interval rowing, and the other a straight forward couplet. Saturday will be whatever Dave Castro comes up with for 20.2!

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 into the 8th week of a 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. This week is a de-load or off week. We will be focusing on other skills and movements this week.

The CrossFit Open starts this week. So we continue to prepare for it this week by working on several movements that are sure to show up – double-unders, muscle-ups (pull-ups and C2B being something to also work on for those that haven’t reached those milestones) and thruster efficiency.

Monday starts with another one of the Wodapalooza online qualifiers from this year. It is a great triplet followed by a max C&J. This is a good WOD to work on Thruster efficiency. Tuesday’s focus is about progressing on the scale of ring rows -> pull-ups -> C2Bs -> Muscle-ups. If you went hard on Monday, you may want to go easy on the shoulder work on Tuesday. Wednesday will be an opportunity to work on how comfortable you are in the rack position during any squat movement. This is important to learn for efficiency, good mechanics and ultimately your ability to go heavy. The FGB form is always a great way to develop our physical conditioning. Thursday is a chance to work on those dreaded double-unders, and the WOD gives you plenty of incentive to get that done! Friday is a fun partner WOD followed by some dip work. On Saturday our main focus will be the Open WOD, but it’ll also be your last chance to run our Obstacle Course before we shut it down for the year. And remember we will also be open on Sunday from 2:30pm – 3:30pm for doing the Open WOD.

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the 7th week of a 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. This week is the 3nd week of the second phase. But, we also have options for those that haven’t been doing the Juggernaut system.

The CrossFit Open start on October 10th. We’ll continue to prepared for it this week, though in a sense we are always preparing since being ready for whatever and whenever is one of the basic tenets of CrossFit. As in prior weeks, we will do a past Open WOD. This Wednesday it is 15.3.

Monday starts with a typical triplet AMRAP. Tuesday is a long WOD with quite a bit of volume. Wednesday is the past Open WOD. Thursday is a longer girl benchmark. We don’t recommend going all out Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. You’ll want to perhaps just focus on two of the MetCons. On the other day, take a rest or come in do the strength and spend time stretching, doing SMR and/or light cardio. Friday is a fun chipper. And we finish the week remembering Juliana.

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the 6th week of a 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. This week is the 2nd week of the second phase. But, we also have options for those that haven’t been doing the Juggernaut system.

This week we continue preparing a little more for the CrossFit Open. (In a sense we are always preparing since being ready for whatever and whenever is one of the basic tenets of CrossFit.) Same as last week, you will see one of the past Open WODs sometime during this week. This week we kick off with 19.2 or you could say 16.2.

After 19.2 on Monday we move onto a straight-forward couplet that has the additional challenge of a buy-in, which means you’ll already be oxygen deprived for the main part of the workout. This is a great way to expand your work capacity. Wednesday will involve interval training with increasing demand on your oxidative energy pathway (cardio). Thursday and Friday are opposing WODs in the sense that one is focused on body-weight movements with a fixed amount of work to be performed while the other employs increasingly heavier weights with a variable workload. Saturday is a WOD dedicated to making us all aware of human trafficking.

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the fifth week of a 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. This week is the first week of the second phase. But, we also have options for those that haven’t been doing the Juggernaut system.

This week we start preparing a little more for the CrossFit Open. (In a sense we are always preparing since being ready for whatever and whenever is one of the basic tenets of CrossFit.) For the next few weeks, you will see one of the past Open WODs sometime during the week. This week it’s on Tuesday.

On Monday we will have a classic Benchmark – Lynne, which is a great chest and back workout. 17.1 is a long challenging couplet. Wednesday is body-weight intensive. Thursday, like Monday is again a bit more strength based, though it has a great core-building element to it. Friday is a fun workout involving some of our obstacles. And then there is Saturday, “Santiago” is a tough Hero WOD at Rx. You’ll need Sunday to rest after that one, but don’t worry – we have plenty of options for Saturday.

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:
We are into the fourth week of a 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. This week is an off week and we’ll be doing other work, i.e. overhead squat, dips, and extra running. Next we’ll we will start the second of four phases of this strength cycle.

This week we start off with a long chipper that will have you start off the week with a bit of everything, and burn off any “guilty” calories from the weekend. Tuesday’s WOD is brutish and short, which is a good contrast to Monday’s workout. On Wednesday we are doing a hero WOD as part of supporting the Catch a Lift organization. This workout is a bit different and we hope you will enjoy the twist to it. Thursday is about as “CrossFit” as a WOD can get and we hope you enjoy the thrusters and pullups combined with running. Friday is a more strength focused workout, while Saturday will develop your speed and endurance.

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.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the third week of a 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.]

We hope you got a good rest over the long weekend as we start the week with a fun tabata WOD with lots of different exercises. 3 of this week’s WODs are from this year’s games. We selected a good mix and don’t worry, we have alternates and options for us mere mortals. Saturday is a longer running workout with a strength component mixed in. This week will definitely challenge all three energy systems – phosphagen, glycolic and oxidative. Read about them here. To get optimal results for your health and fitness, you want to train all three energy systems on a consistent basis. This is why what we do is so effective. Most (non-CrossFit) training programs only train one or two of the three energy systems; hence, we get the best results.

Ideally you will do 3 of the weekday WODs and Saturday’s WOD. Most shouldn’t do the WODs on all 5 days, which could lead to over-training. Do our strength program all week, but only 2-3 MetCons during the weekdays. It is better to be able to do 2-3 MetCons at full intensity versus doing 4-5 MetCons while dragging. Keep in mind that we program for people that come anywhere from 2 to 5+ times per week, have different skill and fitness levels, and have different goals and objectives. Our trainers can sit down with you and customize our programming for you on any given month to better suit you. And of course our trainers are always available to help you modify, adapt or scale any workout. Talk to one of our trainers if you have questions or are interested in a more customized program.

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.

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

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:
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!

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.

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!

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:
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!
