Today at 8am: The Very First Strong Fit Class!
Join us for Strong Fit, a strength program that includes lifting heavy things often. Strong Fit will stimulate different energy systems/intensities, and include objects not normally seen in group class: the yoke, axle, sandbags, handles, ropes, and sleds. Pick it up, put it down, hold it, squat it, push it, pull it, and move it from point A to point B. Full body functional movements performed at high intensity that will compliment your training and get you stronger. This is fitness in its rawest form.
On the fence? Still not sure what this is all about? Coach Fox recently responded to a request for more info from Karina T. His response was so good we’re reposting it here:
“Glad you’re interested in the Strong Fit class! It’ll be led by myself and Coaches McDowell and Brett. We’ll all be there for the first few weeks and then will begin to alternate week to week. The format will start with a warm up and then athletes will rotate through 3-5 stations performing carries, holds, pushes, pulls using varying implements. We’ll usually end with a “finisher” that will feel a lot like a short, intense CrossFit metcon. One of the great things about the movements that we’ll employ in this class is that they are largely concentric in nature, meaning you shouldn’t be left too sore from them. Let me know if you have any other questions and hope to see you this Saturday!”

Strong Fit!!! Triple the coaches, triple the fun.
+1 for Strong Fit! A lot of fun this morning. Bear hug sand bag carries were tough and a surprising mix of strength and cardio. Just picking up the sandbag is a challenge as was figuring out how to breath during the carries. Will definitely try to find time for this on Saturday mornings.
50' 1 arm farmer carry – 110#, 130#, 140#
200' sandbag carry – 100# x 2, 140#
100' sled sprint race x 3
Morning of lots of different fitness:
StrongFit! Totally different challenge for me, whole different set of coordination/breathing skills I'm lacking. Fun having Fox, McD, and Brett all there as guiding eyes.

Inspired by Lady Fox for this one, and it was terrible (which means I'll definitely be doing it again). Did 3 C2B pull ups between each set during the rest.

1) 8am StrongFit class:
-Jefferson Deadlifts (95#), Z presses (15#, 17.5#, 20#), Sandbag squats (at 60#)
-Subbed in Single Arm OH Carries instead of the Farmer's carries: 100' each arm (40#, 45#, 53#)
-200' Sandbag carry (100#)
-Empty sled sprints (these were fun…until my legs stopped allowing me to stand and walk 😉
Took at least 20 minutes to recover/bull shit/eat a snack/convince myself to do my lifts then…
2) Paused Squats 5×3 (45×5, 135×3, 165×3, 195×2) 215x3x3
-stopped after 3 sets as the speed just wasn't there. Totally felt those sled sprints and deadlifts in these.
3) Paused Bench Bress 5×3 (45×5, 75×5, 100×3) 115x3x5
-all moved well here.
4) 30 minutes of:
a) 50' Yoke Walk (195, 235, 275, 315, 335, 355)
b) Max unbroken HSPU (stuck with 10 each round)
c) 20 cals erg (easy pace)
-Got through 6 rounds in just over 30mins. Had to break up the middle rounds into 2 25' walks to make room for class but was able to do the last walk at 355 unbroken for the 50'.

Thanks Brett for the advice on T2B. Need to try to focus on what my legs are doing instead of pushing down so much with my arms.
Did a few rope climbs.

Wanted to do 3 sets but my arms were like, nope.
