I need you all back at the gym on Monday! *Also stay tuned this weekend as we will be putting out the weekly schedule for 2012. Carrie and Atom

Alright competitors… Let’s raise the stakes a little. “The COLD WAR” is pleased to announce that we now have a founding partnership with INTELLIGENT DECISIONS (www.intelligent.net) for this and future events. Partnered with CF Liberation we will be able to support “Operation Ward 57″ and its wounded warriors to the fullest extent in our first annual competition. Along with a portion of our event’s proceeds going to the Ward 57 team, we will also be accepting donations all day long to support this noble cause.

The top 3 RX teams and the top scaled team members will each win a brand new Apple Ipad!!!!! We will also have … Read More
Athletes, Veteran’s day is Nov 11th, 2011. We will be open for this military holiday as usual with an afternoon schedule to offer heats of the “Liberator” starting at 3pm. We will organize heats every 1/2 hour until 5pm (Or UTC). This time around the BB movement (Which changes every time we offer the “Liberator”) will be the O/H Squat. For many of us CFL vets this is the 4th time around facing this great WOD but we have a lot of new faces so we hope to get some first-timers too. Our gym’s WOD is an excellent example of CrossFit’s diversity and you definitely don’t want to miss it. See you there! For those of us who want to stick around for the whole day we can go eat some BBQ after… Coach
Athletes, You definitely don’t want to miss today’s WOD…I urge you all to test yourselves with the weight today (Safely, of course). If you are completely “Comfortable” with the weight you chose…it’s probably not enough. Key points to being successful today, the Push-Jerk is all in the aggressive drive out of the hole. Commit yourself to getting all 5 reps without dropping the bar because if you drop it, you’ll have to clean it back up (Just be sure to maintain a straight spine and absorb the shock on the way back down). If you are in doubt about getting all 5 obviously drop it….but rather than quickly pulling weight off your bar because its “Hard” you can do what Jenny K did (85) which is suck it up and do a Clean + Jerk for each rep. Deadlifts should … Read More
Athletes, We are pleased to offer another 2-part Olympic Lifting Seminar with Coach Rick Bucinell for the community. The first day will be this Sat. Oct 22nd from 11-1pm. Learning the Snatch and Clean + Jerk from a professional lifter like Rick has HUGE benefits for your CrossFit progression and is WELL worth it (Only $60!). The other major lifts that we perform at the gym (Front Squat, O/H Squat, Sh. Press, etc…) are all broken-down portions of these dynamic lifts. Master these 3 “O-Lifts”…master REAL weightlifting. Sign-up sheet is at the desk in the gym. Coach
