FireTeam 7 Challenge & Fundraiser
Saturday, August 13th – 8am – 1:30pm w/ Taco Truck party afterwards.

See all the detail and WOD info here.

In the military the smallest unit is the fire team – a 4 person unit. On occasion, such as with a sniper pair or swim pair, special forces units will even deploy in pairs. But in either case, always operating as part of a greater effort. FTX stands for Final Training eXercise, which in the military are field tests to see if a unit is ready for deployment or Mission Ready. In that spirit, FTX CrossFit is holding its 7th Annual FireTeam Competition and Fundraiser on Saturday, August 13th for 4 person FireTeams (MMFF). Come together as a community for a greater cause to help soldiers and their families that have suffered injuries or other hardship serving our country and see if your FireTeam is Mission Ready. Part of the proceeds will go to the SEAL Legacy Foundation. More details and registration information to come. For now, mark your calendars!

Overview of our programming this week

This is our last week of our final cycle of banded lifts at the beginning of each week followed later in the week by heavier 1RM lifts.

Monday – None
Tuesday – Banded Front Squats + Deadlifts
Wednesday – Banded Bench Press
Thursday – Deadlift
Friday – Push Press

For the 4th of July, remember we are only open 9am and 10am. For that day we have a long 35-minute AMRAP of running, BW Deadlifts, lunges and Burpees. Tuesday is a partner WOD with wheelbarrow, wall balls and DB snatches. Wednesday is 3 BW exercise chipper consisting of burpees, sit-ups and jump rope. Thursday is a classic CrossFit AMRAP couplet of rowing and thrusters. Friday is a nasty EMOM alternating between the dreaded bike and weighted step-ups. Saturday is the hero WOD “Severin”.

FTX Classes – We have the most extensive group class based schedule of any facility in the area. See our schedule here – https://ftxcrossfit.com/schedule/.
