    ANNOUNCMENT:  Quite a bit to cover with this one.   On behalf of the Owners & Coaches of CrossFit970, we want to provide you with a quick overview of our response to the recent announcement that Larimer County has moved to “red” status beginning this Tuesday at 5pm (Tuesday will be a regular day for us as it makes no sense to do anything different starting at 5pm).  

    We have met as a team and have a few things to cover with you during your class times this week.  In person communication and our website will be your ONLY source of information.  We will NOT be providing updates via our social media pages.   

    Some things to prepare for:

    We will be asking our bigger classes (5:30am and potentially noon) to think about alternative class times (for the 5:30am, think about the 6:30am and for noon, maybe moving to the 11am).  Again, we will discuss this in person.  

    You will ABSOLUTELY NOT be allowed in class if you are late.  (Late will be defined as once the whiteboard discussion has concluded, so you will have a small buffer)

    You will enter the front of the building and exit the back.

    You will not be allowed to enter the building until the class before you has exited.  

    We will be changing the evening class hours to 4pm, 5pm and 6pm in an attempt to spread the bigger 4:30 class out.  This will not happen until Monday November 30th.  

    We will go in to greater detail throughout the week during our whiteboard talks.  We are asking all of you to please be extremely respectful of our time at the whiteboard as our Coaches communicate with you about these very important items. 

    As always, our goal as a team is to provide you with the best hour of your day…even if our time together might look a little different in the short term.  We feel like our plan will allow us to continue in as much of a “business as usual” manner as we have up until this point. 

    THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND LOYALTY TO US.  WE APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!

    ANNOUNCEMENT:  The Giving Tree is up in the lobby!  Please please please take one (or a few) of the cards from the tree and help those that are in need.  Obviously this is a tough time for a lot of people so its even more important this year that we do the best we can to help.

    4 x 3:00 Interval

    6 Power Snatch (95/65)(135/95)

    10 T2B

  6. 11/17/2020

    Complete For Time;

    4 Rounds

    15 Front Squat (95/65)(135/95)

    10 Burpee Box Jump (24”/20”)

    50 Double Unders

    For today, this is one where you’re going to need to just settle in to a pace and stay consistent with it.  For the front squats, this should be a weight you can do 15 reps unbroken even in the later rounds.  The box jumps are going to be a little bit of a challenge with “heavy legs” so make sure you jump higher than you need to!

    ANNOUNCEMENT:  Many of you have probably seen the post in the 970 Facebook group about the 2020 Turkey Challenge.  If not, go to Facebook or Instagram and search “2020 Turkey Challenge” As a gym we have participated in this event since its inception over 10 years ago.  It is going to be an online comp this year which really opens it up to a lot of people that would not normally sign up to compete in an in person comp.  The WODS for the Turkey Challenge will be released on Wednesday.  We will be programming them on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for our gym WODS.  So…since you are going to be doing them anyway….you might as well sign up for the event.  There are many divisions to choose from.  We think the most fun might be the “Team” divisions where you can pick your team and have some fun with your buddies.   Talk to a Coach if you are interested.

  8. 11/13/2020

    Complete For Time:

    4 Rounds

    6 C2B/Bar MU

    8 Cluster (95/65)(135/95)

    75 Double Under

    ***Cluster is a Squat clean to thruster***

    For today, if you are working on bar MU, but 6 per round is a bit much, consider splitting the reps into 3 & 3.  We don’t want you to stay away from the movement, but we also don’t want it taking 50% of your time for the WOD.  The cluster weight should be on the moderate side for you.  If the RX is too light, but the RX+ is too heavy, find a good weight that is in between the two.

    With regard to the double Unders….if you are working on DU, PLEASE do them in this WOD. Cut the reps.  Not the movement.  You NEED to work on them in a WOD.  Under fatigue.  So don’t stay away from them or you will never get them!

  9. 11/12/2020

    Partner WOD

    Complete For Time:

    Oh…and the max distance you can row before you have to switch is 250 Meters.

    Female partners will do the 3,000.  Male partners will do 4,000.  Male/Female partners will do 3,500.
