  • It's about challenging yourself....they did...

    We talk a lot about competition at WildFire CrossFit. CrossFit was founded on it and it’s popularity as a method of fitness skyrocketed with the introduction of the CrossFit Games in 2007. Every day, we score our workouts and we ring the bell every time we get a PR. So, is competition important? Yes it is, as long as the main person you are competing with is yourself. That’s really the point of what makes CrossFit so special. Constantly challenging yourself to be better. Not only better physically, or as athlete, it challenges us to be better human beings. Whether you know it or not, you inspire others to be better too, and while that might not always ....

  • Tabata Friday....and Deadlifts

    EVENT: Tomorrow (Saturday, January 20 th ) at 10am will be the First Open-Prep workshop. Whether you are planning on participating in the Open or not, this is a great opportunity to learn more about how it works. Tabata is a time interval that allows us to maximize the intensity. There is a 10-sec rest after each 20-sec working period. The whole point is to be able to go all out during the 20-sec period knowing you will have a 10-sec rest. We are working on going heavy in the power clean, so choose a weight that you can get a few reps per round in. Fast transition between exercises so that when the whistle blows you can GO!

  • Wednesday Workout - Week of Programming

    Events: THIS WEEKEND – Saturday, January 20 th at 10am will be the first edition of the Open Prep workshop. We will begin with a Q & A on the 2018 CrossFit Games Open Competition, and then we will work on some specific skills we expect to see in the Open and finish with a specific Open Prep workout. It’s been a whole since I’ve been hit with the flu bug, and while it seems like it goes around every year during the winter months, this year’s flu has been extra vicious. Being in good physical condition and eating healthy isn’t necessarily a shield against getting sick, however, it sure will help you recover and feel better faster. We ....

  • "Royal with Cheese" for the Friday WOD

    Like most of the exercises we do in CrossFit, there is little that is unique about them. CrossFit, and Coach Glassman, simply put them together so that they are constantly varies and performed across broad times and modal domains. Simply put, we change up the exercises, times, and areas of physical fitness. Naming exercises and equipment after people is also something that is not unique to CrossFit. The Smith Machine – Essentially a squat rack - Was created by Fitness Legend Jack Lalanne. Was then stolen by a Vic Tanny’s Gym Manager, Rudy Smtih, who started putting it in all the gyms them opened. Vic Tanny’s gym may not be around anymore, the ....

  • Rope Climbs Today - WEAR LONG SOCKS!!

    Wear or bring your long socks today…we are doing Rope Climbs!! We wear long socks when doing Rope Climbs because otherwise, we get rope burn. There’s rarely a day that we do rope climbs that we have someone who thinks “it’s won’t be that bad, I’m tough, I don’t need no stinking socks!” And then you see them the next day with a big, painful scab on their shin that inevitably gets infected, takes forever to heal, and leaves a scar. NO Fun ? Don’t be that person!! Wear or bring your long socks and save yourself a lot of misery later! For the Workout today, this is a “Fight Gone Bad” Style ....

    Honoring
    Heroes
    On June 28 th , 2005, Team Leader, Lt. Michael Murphy was killed when his team was ambushed during a reconnaissance mission in Afghanistan. Lieutenant. Murphy intentionally put himself in harms way because he knew the only way his men would have a chance to survive was for him to call for reinforcements. In order to get a signa to make the call, Lieutenant Murphy had to put himself directly in the line of enemy fire. Even after being knocked to his knees from a gunshot to his back, he calmly made the call for rescue. The call was answered, and with a complete understanding of the risks involved, 8 of his Brother Seals and 8 Army ....

  • Why do we do 1 Rep Max?

    So, we are doing a 1 Rep Max Deadlift today at WildFire. For some athletes, it’s their reason for existing in the gym…to be able to lift heavy weight. For others, they don’t care if they ever lift heavy and might even stay away on a 1 rep max day. Is there really a value in lifting heavy weight? The answer is YES! Believe it or not, the 1 Rep Max goes way beyond just the challenge of getting a new PR & being able to ring the bell. Sure, we love to hear that bell ring, and there are some physical benefits besides what it does for our confidence at lifting weight. When we lift heavy, the spinal cord releases ....

  • Add a little Power to your Thursday at WildFire CrossFit

    Add a little Power to your Thursday!
    Yesterday we had a great workout for building stability throughout the body. Exercises like the weighted lunge and Med Ball Push Up (not to mention the Russian Twists) help all our muscles work together at their fullest range of motion. Think about it. If we can’t re-engage the muscles in our legs when we relax, getting out of the bottom of a lunge wouldn’t happen. Today, we get to apply that stability in the Power Clean and Jerk, and there is a very specific method to the madness with the format of this lift. We are going to give you all the time you need to go heavy. While you may dump the weight after the first rep, you ....

    Wednesday Workout: Building the Upper Body & Core

    We’ve got a good one for you today at WildFire! First, we are going to begin with a gymnastics/core grinder. Then, we’ll work on Shoulder Stability and Strength with the Dumbbelll Strict Press. There are a lot of ways to build strength. In fact, any additional volume on any lift you do will help you build strength in that area. The question each athlete needs to answer for themselves is, “where are my weaknesses and what will I commit to do to improve them?” The upper body and shoulder area is typically an area of weakness in most athletes. Focusing some time and attention on the upper body and shoulders will have a dramatic impact on your strength. ....
