CrossFit Chester – 20.01.14

Dear Members,

Before we disclose the workout for today.  We just want to let you know about the CrossFit Open!

The CrossFit Open is an awesome event.  Basically every CrossFitter in the world signs up and competes in the workouts released by CrossFit HQ!  Last year 138,000 people signed up.  Not matter what level of fitness or skill you are it is good fun.  All workouts are programmed so that everyone can post a score and of course get a great workout out!  have a look at this video which will explain it all:


The first Open workout will be released on Thursday, Feb. 27. The fifth and final Open workout will be released five weeks later on Thursday, March 27.

We at CrossFit Chester will be holding 1 or 2 sessions per week where we will programme the workouts for the class, and if you sign up you will be allocated a Judge, who will verify your score.

If you want to sign up then follow this link and create your profile.

In support of Kevin Ogar, who has had a life changing spinal injury at the OC Throwdown, we have programmed the following workout that was at that competition.


On the 5 min clock:

You have 5 min to complete Fran:

– 21-15-9 Thrusters 40/30 and pull ups

When clock hits 5 Min:

When clock hits 10 Min:

– you have another 5 mins to do another fran

15 mins is time!

Your score is your slowest Fran or least reps completed in the 5 min section.
