The 12 Days Of Christmas!

12 Days! OMG. Days 1-4 are this week, you’ll get a sticker if you complete all 12, Friday is Make-Up day, and Saturday is still a team workout, be excited ๐Ÿ™‚

This week is a little crazy, Lynnwood is hosting a certification course for CrossFit, so the coaches will be all over the map, enjoy it!!!


This is a silent week ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s load of workouts coming for the L4 at Lynnwood, but there’s a plan for classes each day, be cool, and Monday is Cindy. So get those hands trimmed up, and go ahead and stretch out your legs so you can squat low!

You’ll need to bring Rope Climbing Socks for Thursday!!

Another week closer to the end. OF THE YEAR! How’d we get here?

At the risk of sounding sappy, it’s been an honor to spend this, our second, year with you guys. Lots of ups and downs as always, loads of records, thousands of reps. 2 Years without any signage!! I can’t believe it’s still working ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad that it is, and it’s 100% to do with you guys wanting to come in and get after it, week in week out, telling your friends, re-recruiting people who’ve left, telling your mom she should call me and get workouts together. It’s amazing. Congrats and Bravo.

The 12 Days of Christmas are coming! Please remember that I’m not the guy who’s trying to exclude people by not using “Holidays” over Christmas, I’m just like a normal dude, and 12 days is fun because it fits really well, and I don’t know another way.

Starting the 4th – Next Monday – the first 4 workouts each week (Monday through Thursday) are workouts 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, Friday is make-up day or heavy day, and Saturday is still a team workout for happiness. We’ll have a Tally up in the Auxiliary Glass Boards in the gym, piece of cake.

ALSO!! Next week Dec 4th and 5th, we’re hosting the L4 for CrossFit again! Very big deal. Class sign-ups will be on the boards, we need people to sign up to allow the coaches testing to have real people to work with. Fear not about your ability level, THEY are being tested on their ability to teach and scale, NOT YOU on your athletic capacity. Deets in the gym as always ๐Ÿ™‚

Halloween Week! Halloweek?

Halloween week! It’s on a Tuesday, that’s whack. But whatever, we’ll have some fun that day, I hope you can make it in, you’ll dig it. Details below. If you’re a costume person, cool rock it, I’m not particularly into it, I’ve tried many times in the past, and it doesn’t typically work so well. Example: I did a lumberjack one year, and people thought I was just wearing that, and didn’t even think it was halloween. HA.

No schedule changes dues to halloween. 5am classes on Wednesday (show up, y’all said you’d be there), and night classes on Tuesday. Thanks!


Monday: 3 Deficit Handstand Push-Ups, 6 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls 155/105, Accumulate 18 seconds in an L-Sit. Max Rounds in 6 minutes, two minutes rest, then again in 4 minutes, 2 minutes rest, then 2 minutes AMRAP again

Tuesday: Bring a deck of cards, NOT A PINOCHLE DECK, seriously. See below.

Wednesday: “Annie”

Thursday: “The Chief”

Friday: Ring Muscle-Up Day! WorkShop + Strength Training

Saturday: Buddy Buddy Push Press 3 Rounds of 5×5, 65/45, 95/65, 125/85, 155/105, 185/135

For Tuesday: Run through the deck by flipping one card at a time and doing what that card says:

E.g. An 8 of Spades means do 8 Deadlifts, a 5 of hearts means do 5 pull-ups, a four of diamonds means do 4 overhead squats, and a 6 of clubs means row 6 calories.

Spades -Deadlifts 185/135
Hearts -Pull-ups
Diamonds-Overhead Squats 115/75
Clubs -Rowing Cals
Jacks -20 Biceps Curls 45/33

Notable Alterations:
Ace of Spades Hold a Max Handstand Hold
Queen of Hearts Ski 15 Calories
“15’s” Skip Whatever Card made the “15” (God Bless Cribbage)
Pairs Repeat as if prior suit was played

E.g. 3,2,1โ€ฆGO! I flip over an 8 of Diamonds, I do 8 overhead squats, then I go to my deck and flip over a 5 of hearts, I go do 5 pull-ups, then I flip a 10 of clubs, I would be rowing 10 calories, but 5 + 10 makes โ€œ15โ€ so I skip the cals!! So I flip again and get a 10 of Spades, a PAIR! So I act like itโ€™s a 10 of clubs (prior suit) and go row my 10 calories anyway (ha), I come back and flip, I get the Ace of Spades, I go to the wall and do my handstand. Et cetera.

Get it? Itโ€™s the whole deck 52 cards for time. Have fun with it, at most is 63 (53 Pull-ups) reps of anything, so the transitions will slow it down, hopefully the ski wonโ€™t back up, and yes, Jacks are 20 biceps curls with an empty bar (get jacked.. get it?!)

You arenโ€™t going to get the butt you want by sitting on the one you have
