EMOMs with no time off are BRUTAL! Knowing how to scale so that you get some rest in is key, but it isn't always easy to do. Great job today folks, a lot of sweaty faces today!

WOD 102016

Wicked job on an extremely challenging workout! Macho Man approves!

WOD 101516

Partner Deck of Cards

spades = toes-to-bar

hearts = box-jump-overs (20/24)

diamonds = ground-to-overhead (55/75)

clubs = alternating lunges in place with a barbell (55/75) overhead

Jokers = row 50 calories for one of the jokers (partner in a plank) and do 50 burpees for the other joker (partner in a static hang)

Each group of two will have a shuffled deck of 54 cards. Lay the cards face down and on the count of “3-2-1 GO!” one person draws the top card and depending on the suit, will do one of the four movements above. Do the number of reps corresponding to the number on the card.

For face cards it’s 11 reps for a Jack, 12 reps for a Queen, 13 reps for a King, and 14 reps for an Ace.

This workout is for time. Take turns drawing cards and completing all reps for each movement until you are through the whole deck.


Nice to throw a monkey wrench into some workouts. Strict movements while your heart rate is up is no joke! Fun workout today and such a nice day to run outside. Great job everybody!

CrossFit Community Event!

Hey folks, I’ve been in touch with Roy, the owner of CrossFit 709 and we thought it’d be cool to do a community event on Friday, Oct 21. Essentially, it’d be the final Team Series Workouts (modified/scaled so that everyone can participate) and the teams would be chosen so that they’re as mixed as possible (between gyms) and well balanced (based on ability).

This event will take place at CrossFit 709 on Friday evening, starting at 6pm, but try and be there at 5:30pm so that we have time to deal with the logistics. I’d shut down Islander for the evening of course, so there’s no reason not to participate. The nature of this event is all about meeting new people, growing the CrossFit community and having fun working out!

You can sign up by jotting your name on the designated whiteboard at the gym and I hope to see you all participating, it should be a great time!

WOD 101416

Part A:

1 power clean + 1 front squat + 1 push jerk: find your max
