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!
