Olympic Weightlifting WODBuffer Week

This week the focus is on making sure you understand and have the proper protocols of what you need as an individual to set yourself up for success when the next program begins in a week. Do you know what phases of the lifts need improvement? Do you know which exercises help teach confidence, develop speed, and build power for those particular phases?

Kettlebell WOD

Bent press progressions
Weighted single leg deadlifts
Simple & Sinister

Endurance WOD?

A handful of you athletes were asking when our seasonal ENDURANCE CLUB would return. What if we just posted a program to the blog every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with what you should do?

The 2018 Foundation CrossFit Intramural Open (FCFio) is upon us! If you need a TL;DR essentially we are following along with the CrossFit Games Open (CGO) so we can all push each other to do our best with a friendly intragym competition. The CrossFit Games Open is an official CrossFit HQ event where CrossFitters all around the world compete in an online competition (1 workout a week for 5 weeks) and put themselves out there competing in a handful of divisions: Teens, Open Rx, Open Scaled, and multiple Masters groups.

I would love for you to sign up for the actual CrossFit Games Open. It’s $20+tax, but if you register and have a valid score for all five workouts, complete the Online Judges Course (and send in the PDF to info@), then I’ll credit your April dues $20. This way you’ve improved your knowledge base and performance as an athlete.

We have three teams in the FCFio this year:

– TEAM BE EPIC
– TEAM HURTS SO GOOD
– TEAM HELLABUFF

Unlike the past couple of years, instead of a Captain/Co-captain I’ve decided Leadership Groups would be a better alternative. There are many roles & responsibilities involved in inspiring and elevating your fellow swolemates and I think multiple leaders enforce better turnout and results while keeping all of us accountable. I’ve chosen a handful of athletes that exemplify the spirit of Foundation for these rolees and they will be announced soon.

Next week these teams will run a draft for all athletes currently signed up for the 2018 CrossFit Games Open. Today we will also put up a signup sheet for those who want to play in the FCFio, but not officially in the CGO. From there Teams will be set before the first event on Sunday 2/25. VERSUS XI will conclude the entire event (first event will be CGO 18.5).
