Weekly WODs: 

Monday

Crossfit  –  Nacho’ Average Leg Day

In a workout like this you don’t want to go full steam in the first round. If you do you’ll have a VERY VERY bad time. Our workout is 3 sets for reps of dumbbell step-ups, up-downs, air squats, hang muscle cleans, and bike calories. Each movement will be performed just shy of 1-minute to allow a transition period between each exercise. Biceps are cool, but don’t let your muscle cleans look extra “muscly” by swinging them all over the place.

Burn 
The first workout in our line-up this week is 5 rounds for time of 10 wall balls followed by 10 alternating dumbbell snatches.

 

Tuesday

Crossfit  – “DeathRow” Benchmark WOD

The goal of this workout is not to start off fast and taper as you go. Although, that’s what most of us would probably wish.  Our workout today is one of the nastiest NCFIT benchmarks they’ve ever came up with. Our WOD will test your will power as you find out if you can hang on for all 10 rounds of alternating burpees and rower calories for 20 minutes.

Burn 
It’s strongman Tuesday in Burn class. We have a 12 minute AMRAP of short running intervals, double-unders, and farmer’s carries.

 

Wednesday

Crossfit  – Jump and Punch

Our pre-workout strength and conditioning workout will allow athletes to refine their barbell technique for the jerk. Today’s coaching will focus on the timing in the shoulder to overhead series and maintaining tension while overhead. The strength segment will allow athletes to build to a heavy set of 3 push-jerks. Today’s WOD includes box jumps, shoulder to overhead (athlete choice) , and front squats.

Burn 
Grab your kettlebells! We have a training EMOM of rower calories, kettlebell front rack lunges, and kettlebell push press.

 

Thursday

Crossfit –  Breathe and Brace

Maintaining tension in the deadlift while your heart rate is through the roof is rather difficult, but it’s a skill you’ll find programmed  in Crossfit a lot. We have 3 sets of 7 minute intervals. Each 7 minutes athletes will perform an 800 meter dash, 15 hand release push-ups, 15 deadlifts, and max sit-ups in the remaining time. We aren’t done quite yet. The coach will most likely lock the doors after the WOD to make sure no one escapes our finisher after the workout!

Burn 
We have a six minute sandwich coming your way! Our workout is a double AMRAP of up-downs, sit-ups, dumbbell deadlifts, and push-ups.

 

Friday

Crossfit  – Silkie Appreciation Day

Today’s workout is all legs and lats. Feel free to bust out your favorite pair of short shorts for this Quad God style workout. Don’t worry we won’t judge. Our strength component is four sets of squats building to a moderately heavy 2-rep back squat. Our conditioning is a never-ending ladder of wall balls and pull-ups.

Burn 
In our workout we have an alternating EMOM of dumbbell squat clean thrusters and bike calories. Not comfortable dropping into the squat? No worries. We’ll have a power clean front squat version you can try.

 

Saturday

 8am Crossfit

Today’s two-part workout begins with a strength complex of 1 hang clean pull followed by 2 hang power cleans. Today’s benchmark workout is “Pick your Poison”. It includes 5 rounds of 10 hang power cleans followed by 50 double-unders. Other scaling options will be available in order to decrease the volume of this workout.

Level 2 will have an added core finisher of Romanian deadlifts and weighted Russian twists.

Burn
We’ll be prepping the hinge pattern and getting after it in today’s workout. We have running intervals, heavy swings, ring rows, and box jumps.

“As you think, so shall you become.” 

 – Bruce  Lee


 You’ve heard all the excuses of why your friends can’t do Crossfit. Their excuses often sound something like this…

 

“Crossfit is dangerous.”

“I’m too out of shape.”

“I’ve got injuries.”

“I don’t think I’d be able to learn.”

I’m too old for that.”

“Do the coaches know CPR?”

At CFK, we don’t just coach functional movement. Our goal is to inspire a healthier community by proving that fitness can be fun. Whether someone’s goal is to lose 5 pounds or add 100 more to the bar the CFK staff can lend a hand. Grab your friends so our gym can be a part of their journey too!

Weekly WODs: 

Monday

Crossfit  –  Belly Buster

Our workout today won’t be for score, but we will challenge our midline with some moderately heavy deadlifts and abmat sit-ups. Our other goal should be to go unbroken on our double-unders across all 5 rounds of the workout.

Burn 
It’s shoulder pump central on day 1. We have a shoulder press and ring row ladder.

 

Tuesday

Crossfit  – Legs and Lats

It’s a great day to start gaining confidence with butterfly or kipping pull-ups. Our workout includes an ascending and descending ladder of chest-to-bar pull-ups and goblet squats. We’ll be able to rest our arms during the goblet squats to set us up for big sets on the pull-up bar.

Burn 
This workout will feel like a punch in the gut! We have 7 rounds of burpees and rowing. If you aren’t dry heaving after this one you did it wrong!

 

Wednesday

Crossfit  – Coach’s Choice

Our workout today begins with six sets of heavy push-press broken up with your coach’s favorite assistance exercise. If you love your coach now you may not love them later! Our workout is combines 200 meter running intervals with a dumbbell complex of a alternating dumbbell snatch to a push press.

Burn 
Bring an extinguisher for your legs you’ll need it. We’ve got air squats, rowing, plate ground to overhead, and sit-ups.

Thursday

Crossfit – 25 Minutes of Quality

Our workout today won’t have athletes feeling pressured by the clock. We’ll be focusing on the lunge pattern as well as toes-to-bar, rowing, and box jumps.

Burn 
Our dual ascending and descending ladder today will both prioritize hip extension as well as trunk flexion. We have sit-ups and double dumbbell deadlifts.

Friday

Crossfit  – Wall Sits and Sweat Angels

Our workout for today will have three separate 5 minute running clocks. Each running clock will start with 40/30 calories on the rower or bike followed by a 30 second wall sit. Upon completion of the wall sit athletes will either perform plate ground to overheads, burpees, or a rope climbing variation.

***LEG PROTECTION NEEDED (Long Socks, Athletic Pants, or Knee Sleeves)

Burn 
Our buy-in for today’s workout is an 800 meter run followed by a few rounds of kettlebell swings, push-ups, and double-unders.

 

Saturday

 8am Crossfit – Benchmark Workout “Cloudkicker”

There’s about nothing in Crossfit more “Womanly” or “Manly” than Bear Complex. That’s what we’ve got in today’s WOD.  Athletes should expect to get lots of practice with the barbell as well as spend some time on their feet running 400s. Level 2 will perform a heavy single bear complex prior to the conditioning.

Burn
We might see a major shift in today’s burn attendance! Our regular Crossfit members may find their way over to Burn class today for this fun workout. Today’s Crossfit open style workout is an ascending ladder of alternating dumbbell snatches with burpee box jump-overs.

Supplement Spotlight:

Let’s be real…  When we diet we place an overwhelming emphasis on macronutrients. Whether you follow keto, paleo, Adkins, or any other new diet trend these nutrients become the focal point. We often don’t take into account the critical role of vitamins and minerals such as zinc, magnesium, and B-vitamins. Micronutrients are responsible for many of the body’s processes. For instance, cell division, cell growth, cell repair, and even assist our senses can be traced back to the roles of vitamins and minerals.Transparent Labs Prebiotic greens contains spirullina and chlorella which are rich in water-soluble vitamins and important minerals.

A large dose of fiber is also contained in just one scoop of Prebiotic Greens. Fiber is excellent for digestive health improvement. The American Heart Association recommends a daily intake of 30 grams of fiber per day, and most Americans consume less than half the recommended daily intake. Transparent Labs Prebiotic Greens is an excellent addition to your supplement cabinet when attempting to close this gap in fiber intake. Prebiotic Greens contains acacia fiber, green banana flour, and Jerusalem artichoke fiber.  Get 4 grams of fiber fast! Be Good to Your Gut! Get one today

 


Weekly WODs: 

 

Monday

Crossfit – Back Squat Deload + Two Minutes Too Much

Great job crushing the squats, deadlifts, and presses for our Wendler Cycle. We’re taking a step back this week in order to allow our central nervous system to reboot. Our deload for the back squat should allow us to feel confident and explosive under the barbell! These weights should be well within your wheelhouse, but give you a slight challenge. Our conditioning is alternating intervals of 400m runs and wall balls. Our goal today is to keep the intensity high and attempt to keep moving when we’re smoked.

AMRAP x 12 MIN
21 Cal Row

Crossfit – Positions, Parameters, and Progressions

You often hear Coach Johnny talk about “The 3 P’s”. Today’s workout incorporates a skill session that focuses on one of our favorite P’s.  Our skill session in today’s workout clearly gives athletes an opportunity to nail  the “P” of Progressions. Each movement in Crossfit has a scalable progression.  Each progression’s purpose is geared toward the mastery of a high skill movement. Our pre-WOD practice is geared toward bar-muscle up development.  Our conditioning includes bar muscle ups, burpees to plate, and kettlebell swings.

We are holding true to our deload in all of our lifts this week.  Day 3 brings us lots of opportunity to drill key aspects of the deadlift to include bar path. Our conditioning consists of light deadlifts and sit-ups. The workout for today prescribes a male and female RX weight of 185 for males and 135 for females on the deadlift. As you can tell these weights are considerably lighter than previous workouts we’ve done. Our main priority is to move the barbell efficiently and unbroken throughout our workout.

Supplement Spotlight:

Black Market Raw Creatine

In order to progress in Crossfit your body must adapt to the demands placed on it each day. If you are consistently challenging yourself with the appropriate doses of intensity then you’ve most likely seen results through improvements in strength and endurance.

In Crossfit, power production is the name of the game.  The energy needed to perform intense exercise as well as muscular contractions is fueled by Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). Most know ATP as the muscle cell’s energy currency. BlackMarket’s Raw Creatine helps to convert creatine phosphate into ATP to fuel intense exercise. Creatine is one of the most highly researched and proven sports performance supplements on the market. It’s no wonder why athletes have been supplementing with it for years. Get Some and Get At It!
