More than a workout – Change your life!™

Merry Christmas

All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,
which means ‘God is with us.’”

Matthew 1:22-23

Overview of our programming this week

This is our fourth week of the second part of this strength cycle which focuses on the in-between lifts of Olympic lifting. We’ll continue developing a proper setup during the descent and transition to overhead movements. You will again work up to heavy sets and hit singles within specific percentage ranges. The overhead lifts and squatting volume will be higher than usual, so please, scale to Power or take the weight down if you are a beginner or need a break. Remember, days labeled “Work up to a Heavy” mean we want to see you reach a top weight (within limitations while always training smart) in 5-6 working sets.

Strength/skill-work for this week:

Monday – Pull-ups
Tuesday – 3 Position Power Snatch
Wednesday – Ft. Squat + Push Press + Jerk Combo
Thursday – Snatch Balance
Friday – None
Saturday – N/A

It’s Christmas time! On Monday our gift to you is an interval WOD of biking and thrusters – Everyone’s favorite! Tuesday is a variation on the benchmark WOD Annie, but this one gets a lump of coal. Wednesday is your choice of Cindy or several variants. Thursday is a partner interval WOD of rowing. Every year towards the end of the year we do the “Sevens” Hero WOD, and on Friday we bring you this challenging WOD. We are closed over the three-day Christmas weekend, but we’ve put together a Home WOD you can do. Anyone posting a score over the weekend will be eligible for some prizes!

FTX Classes – We have the most extensive group class-based schedule of any facility in the area. See our schedule here.

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