WOD - Monday 14th September

Welcome to a new week full of opportunity. Before we talk about the WOD, there is something more important that I want to take a moment to highlight. One of our very newest members Ellen Downey over the last year has been on quite a journey. Working with Franco, and through her sheer determination and persistence has now managed to cure herself of Type 2 Diabetes.

This is an amazing example of what is possible when you take control of your destiny like Ellen has, proving that if you truly want something, then just go out and get it.

I don't know Ellen that well, but I can imagine how she must have felt the first time she came to our box, approaching the front door to the distant sound of barbells being thrown around, loud music and shirtless people everywhere...... It would have been so easy for her to give up, to convince herself that this wasn't for her, but she didn't and is now reaping the rewards.

It really is true that all the good stuff happens way outside your comfort zone.

Ellen recently completed the August On Ramp and as soon as a minor injury has cleared up will be back in to the WOD classes. Please keep an eye out for her and give this remarkable woman a high five when you see her.

Well done to Mel and Ian this weekend competing at Masters at War. Great job guys, judging by the pictures, it looks like you smashed it!

No bank holiday to save us this time so lets get back into another amazing week of work.

Part A

Front Squats 3-3-3

Aim to hit 85%-90% of your 1RM (If you don't know what your 1RM Front Squat is then punch yourself in the face and find it today)

Part B - For Time:


Row (Calories) Thrusters (35/25)

*Everytime you drop the bar, add 3 reps onto the total for that round. (10 minute time cap)

Going unbroken is something all CrossFitters should aspire to, you shouldn't need any additional motivation, but the structure of this workout will give you some added incentive to try to go unbroken during the WOD. Dig deep, and hang in there. MTFU.

WOD - Monday 17th August - Adopt an OnRamper!

Yeh I know, Monday sucks. The sunny BBQ goodness of the weekend is a distant memory and all thats left is the damp, drizzly anticipation of a full week back in work. Unless you're a teacher..... in which case, please do 50 burpees right now to make the rest of us feel better. Thanks.

So to cheer us up, we've got a Partner WOD Monday to look forward to, and as you all know, we've got a fresh batch of OnRampers joing us. So please introduce yourselves, be nice and partner them if they're looking particularly scared. We've all been there!

Psych yourselves up and hit this hard.

In Pairs with only one partner working at a time, complete:


Calorie Row Burpees

On the count of 3,2,1...go perform a 50 calorie row, followed by 50 burpees, followed by a 40 calorie row etc ....... until you finish with 10 Burpees.

Split the work as needed.

WOD - Friday 14th August

Well done to all those who attempted Fran today and especially those that RX'd it. If it was your first Fran then make a note of the time, you'll look back in years to come with fond memories. She won't get any easier though! We graduate a new set of OnRampers tomorrow night who will be enjoying a little bit of FGB as is tradition. If you're in the 6pm class feel free to stick around and give them some love. As a result we'll be deferring our usual Friday Partner WOD until Monday which will be an 'adopt an OnRamper' class.

Tomorrow's WOD:

20min AMRAP: 15 SDHP (35kg/25kg) 10 Hang Power Snatch (35kg/25kg) Run 400m

WOD - Thursday 13th August

Right guys, we are entering a team in the Divided We Fall competition (Nov14th/15th) to be held in Manchester. This is one of the best run CrossFit competitions I’ve been to, and this year each box across the UK will be allowed to enter one team. Its also a great excuse for a Box ROAD TRIP!!! …...So we have to select our team!

The competition guidelines have stated than any athletes competing will need to be able to do Muscle Ups, HSPU’s, Pistols etc. And the team will comprise two girls and two guys.

Obviously there are a few of you who are very close to getting your first Muscle Up or will be nervous about some of the movements…. This is a great time to use this as something to focus you on your goal of getting the movements…. you have 3 months! If you want to try a 6-8 week Muscle Up progression training plan then we’re happy to work with you on that.

So if you fancy it, then for the next few weeks we’ll be using one of the daily WODs for our box as a scored WOD for qualification. We’ll let you know which WOD it is in advance and you’ll have until Sunday night to complete it if you can’t do it on the day.

Just make sure someone is around to count your reps and make sure you do it Rx. This is just a bit of fun so don’t get too serious with it guys and don’t worry too much about the movements at this stage.

I’ll keep a note of the scores so we can see how everyones doing!

Good luck and keep an eye out for the first qualifying WOD #DWF15.1
