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 7th 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 3nd week of the second phase. But, we also have options for those that haven’t been doing the Juggernaut system.

The CrossFit Open start on October 10th. We’ll continue to prepared for it this week, though in a sense we are always preparing since being ready for whatever and whenever is one of the basic tenets of CrossFit. As in prior weeks, we will do a past Open WOD. This Wednesday it is 15.3.

Monday starts with a typical triplet AMRAP. Tuesday is a long WOD with quite a bit of volume. Wednesday is the past Open WOD. Thursday is a longer girl benchmark. We don’t recommend going all out Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. You’ll want to perhaps just focus on two of the MetCons. On the other day, take a rest or come in do the strength and spend time stretching, doing SMR and/or light cardio. Friday is a fun chipper. And we finish the week remembering Juliana.

We hope you enjoy this week of functional, constantly varied workouts done at an appropriate level of intensity. As always – train smart!
