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 will be the final week of the variant of the 5-3-1 Strength Program that we’ve been using for the past few weeks. 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. After this week we will do a new strength cycle in November focusing on eliminating imbalances. We will be back to 5-3-1 in December.

This week consists of mostly medium to medium-long WODs. There is a good variety of formats, i.e. long chipper, FGB variant, and a partner couplet. This week will cover a wide variety of movements, especially given the “Kitchen Sink” WOD. We will hit everything, but nothing too intensely like we’ve done in the past couple of weeks. This should allow for good efforts each day on this final week of our current strength cycle.

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!
