#FTXAugustMust – Participation in our August series of mini-challenges is a must! Video your performances, log them in Wodify and post them with the tag #FTXAugustMust to win prizes. And of course – earn bragging rights, especially if you beat Al! Each of the mini-challenges will be 1 minute or less. Some will involve traditional movements, while others will be a bit more creative 🙂

#FTXAugustMust Final and In-house mini-competition on 8/25 from 10am-2pm. We will host an in-house mini-competition consisting of ten 2 minute challenges. Cost is $20. We will have prizes, food and more. Proceeds will go to buy a new rower.

Strength / Skillwork / WOD

Olympic Lifting Total

  • 1 RM Snatch
  • 1 RM Clean & Jerk

Warm-up really well in both lifts, then make 3 attempts each for a 1RM.  Get plenty of rest between attempts. If you haven’t been lifting regularly and/or can’t  catch these lifts in a full squat, DO NOT attempt a max. Do skillwork and then 3-3-3 of each instead. Only mark Rx if you’re catching these in a full squat. Do not avoid working on catching these lifts in a full squat unless you have an injury and/or limitation preventing it.  Go lighter and spend time working on the deep catch. And if you aren’t familiar with the Olympic lifts, then spend time working on components of each.


16:00 AMRAP

  • 10 Calorie Row
  • 15 Wall Balls, 14/10#
  • 30 Russian Twist (1-ct)

Use any 10# object for your Twists
