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!
