WOD Summary

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

This week, in regards to our strength cycle, we are into the third week of a variant of the 5-3-1 Strength Program. For more information on this Strength Program see this website (Note the author uses some strong language). The 5-3-1 Strength Program is a well-known and proven system. We have used it at FTX on many an occasion with positive results. We are going through one cycle of it now, will do something different in November and will be back to 5-3-1 in December.

Whereas last week we started with a couple of tough WODs, this week we finish with a couple of difficult WODs. Lumberjack 20 (next Saturday) happens to be the very first WOD we ever posted at FTX on Wodify, which we though would be appropriate for the day of our anniversary party. That WOD should also be good for working up a good appetite. This week’s WODs intentionally feature a good mix between barbell, kettlebell, dumbell and BW/gymnastics movements. The workouts are also a good mix of traditional CrossFit and some movements/exercises you don’t see that often.

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!
