It’s important to value INTENSITY over VOLUME in the grand scheme of training. When you come across something fairly short in time (10:00 or less), then your goal is hard and fast. Don’t let up because you feel like it- putting ourselves in positions of discomfort are what take us to the next level!

HellaFit WOD

Our take on bootcamp workouts, this class challenges you for the entire hour with a blend of strength and conditioning that works all the major muscle groups and focuses on functional movement. HellaFit will get you #hellasweaty while having #hellafun!

Endurance WOD

Long Interval: “SMYKOSKI” Run 6k then 60 burpee pullups for time.

If you want to spice it up, wear a weighted vest or a rucksack.

Foundations On-Ramp 2 WOD

5-rep deadlift, ascending


TABATA intervals (20sec work, 10sec rest, for 4 minutes) of:
– goblet squat
– ab-mat situp
– burpee

General prep/warmup is important in getting the body warm, blood-flow moving, and your mentality in the right place for what’s about to happen. Specific prep/warmup is important to make sure the skills used in the workout are practiced well enough to know you can move safely at relatively higher levels of intensity. We prefer a bunch of repetitions of empty bar movement prior to any olympic weightlifting to make sure we stay safe, the movements are sharpened, and the body is ready for killing it!


+ Free Community CrossFit Class this Saturday at 12pm. Bring your family, friends, co-workers.
+ Next Foundations On-ramp Course begins Tuesday, June 6th.
+ 2017 FCF PRIDE shirts available for pre-sale now through Sunday, June 4th!

You KNOW we have some high-rep deadlifts coming in the next five weeks or so. Do you get any tightness in your back after a workout with a high-volume of hinging movements like the deadlift, kettlebell swing, olympic weightlifting, etc? Might want to check out the article and video below.


+ Low Back Tightness During Deadlifts – The Movement Fix

CrossFit WOD for Wednesday 2/22


21-15-9 reps for time:
thruster, 43/29kg

Compare to 1/30/2017. Post time to whiteboard.

Olympic Weightlifting WOD

lifts: front squats, slow clean pull + clean + jerk, push press + jerk
accessories: batman split, single-leg hip extensions, med ball hammer rotations


All sports require different amounts of muscle synchronization, balance, flexibility, and coordination as well as strength, speed, power, and metabolic development. Olympic weightlifting provides development in all these areas. While training for maximal strength can have a positive effect on performance, it also can have a “negative effect on movement speed and the ability of a muscle to display explosive effort” (Wenzel & Perfetto 1992). However, this does not mean that strength gains do not happen through training at high speeds. Wenzel and Perfetto characterized strength gains from high-speed training as adaptations “due to an increase in the number of fibers recruited or a more synchronous firing of motor neurons” (Wenzel & Perfetto 1992).
