The CrossFit Total

The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift, the three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing functional strength. Done correctly, the CrossFit Total (CFT) is perhaps our best tool for telling us the things we need to know about a very important aspect of our training. Mark Rippetoe outlines why we do the CFT, the rules for the CFT, and the standards for each lift... Click here to read more: CrossFit Total "The CrossFit Journal" by Mark Rippetoe

Quarterly Progress Checks

Next week 12/7-12/13 is the quarterly progress checks where we retest from August, May, and Feb of 2015. There will be benchmark WODs or lifts each day.

Is this your first Quarterly Check-In Week?

Here's what's about to go down...
1. Retest your baseline! For one of your workouts for the week, you'll retest your Baseline. You also have the option to retest your Baseline WOD on Sunday at Open Gym on 12/6 or 12/13 from 11am-12pm OR any Open Gym during the week.
2. Goal-Setting & reflection: At the beginning of class on Mon & Tues, we'll take 10 minutes to reflect on our progress over the last three months and set some goals for the next quarter. If you prefer to spend more time on goal-setting, join Mike next Tuesday evening, Dec 8th from 7:15-7:45pm for a goal-setting workshop. We'll take some time to visualize what we want our future to be like, then set smaller, action steps to achieve our longer-term goals.
3. Record your results! If you haven't been doing it already, now is the time to start tracking your progress in the gym. Use the Zen Planner Phone App, or you can track through the Zen Planner web page. Or Google Docs, or old school with a journal. We have journals available at the ProShop.
