Overview of our programming this week

This week we will be doing the 3-3-3+ rep scheme of our third cycle through the 5-3-1 strength program. Here are the lifting days this week.:
Tuesday = Deadlift / Wednesday = Bench Press / Thursday = Shoulder Press / Friday = Back Squat
On Monday, we encourage you all to run either a 5K or 10K. We don’t program a pure running WOD for coming into FTX, but running is as functional as it gets and we should all be able to run these distances. Log your run times in Wodify. We’ll be giving a variety pack case of FitAid to one person randomly chosen from those who logged either a 5K or 10K time. Medium length WODs are on the menu for this week, except next Saturday will be a longer one. If you haven’t learned how to climb the rope yet and can do at least 1 strict pull-up, consider scheduling a 30 minute PT session with our trainers. We guarantee you’ll get it after that.

FTX Classes – We continue with our full schedule of adult and kids’ classes. See our schedule here – https://ftxcrossfit.com/schedule/.

FTX Kids’ Classes – We have classes for 8-13 year-olds Tuesday through Friday at 4:30pm.

#FTXHomeWODs – We have plenty of gear for those of you that want to do some of these workouts at home, whether that is because of childcare situations, health reasons, schedule conflicts, or whatever. We can loan out all sorts of equipment, including rowers and barbells. We can also do personal training sessions with you in your driveway/yard/garage or via Zoom. If this is your situation, then please reach out to us so we can get you all setup!

If you want to do one of our #FTXHomeWODs and follow one of our videos, then please enjoy the hundreds of videos you can now find available on our FTX CrossFit YouTube channel here.
