So I spent this weekend in the back yard making some stones (hint hint-maybe) & I had a lot of time to think about this next weekend. Who is going to win? What box is taking home the trophy? What will people say about the WODs? What are people training for, ect? It made me think of the first Crossfit competition I ever did.It was September-day 3/ 5th of 6 event. The event had us doing pushups/squats/ swin in a nasty lake/ ropeclimb-repeat. The guy i was going against and I started to the lake at the same time-he chose to walk and get in while I chose to sprint and jump into t>Continue Reading

"I'd rather be lying on the floor in a pool of exhaustion, then comfortably sitting with my feet up in a pool of regret"
(Totally just made that up but I really like it!)

Did we release the WODs?
-No. WOD details will be released next Monday night
Did we upload the WOD names under Results?
Did you do this just to Jack with our Brains for a week?
Will you tell us the WODs early?
Not even for $???
-Maybe (but no)
Also don't forget to fallow us on our Facebook! Also check out our tentative schedule update on Details!
Men RX/ Men Scaled/ Women Scaled-Only half the spots remaining!
Don't be that guy/girl at the gym saying "I would have competed but there aren't any spots left"!
So you may have looked at our weight requirements and started to hesitate. To be perfectly honest, these were simply copied/created to give some sort of parameters as we finalize the events. Now that we have our events, let's revise these to be a bit more specific.
RX- Be able to preform the skills mentioned in our original post (Pistols, double unders & muscle ups will have alternatives-prob will not be faster, but will be better than just standing there struggling until time runs out!)
-Be able to clean/front squat/jerk/dead lift your body weight (women 80%)->Continue Reading

Or that the description of "brave" or "hero" just do not come close to describing someone? Meet some of these Warriors a>Continue Reading
So your faced with the question-"Am I RX or Scaled?"
Here is the easiest way to answer to this question
1. Do I do most (At least 80%) of my workouts RX at my Box?
2. Am I comfortable with all of the Movements? (as comfortable as possible (snatch-come'on, no one is comfortable in that movement))
3. Can I -Clean (205/125)
-Dead Lift (300/200)
-Front Squat (265/125)
