Congratulations to Lori, Stacy and Justin!!! All three left the band alone for Jackie and did all 30 pull ups RX. Knowing that only months ago none of them could get a single unassisted pull up that is a great feat. I made a mistake on the 1:30 time slot for the Warrior Dash.

Mylene has placed a sheet on the front cork board for everyone to give her their shirt size for the warrior dash shirts. We need to get everyone that intends on going to the dash to register asap. Time slots are filling up. The 1:30 we were shooting for has apparently already filled up. Start on the 2:30 and we'll make that work. Only sign up for a shirt after you have registered. I'm going to ask everyone over the Read More...

20 Mins: Warm Up, Deadlift Strength and WOD overview Warm Up: 9-6-3 Burpees, Wall Ball Shots Deadlift Strength: Increase your 90% by 10 lbs and recalculate weeks 1-3. Begin with week 1.

Think about what kind of CrossFit Texarkana apparel and gear you want. So far we have shirts, shorts, hoodies, caps, beanies, socks, and things such as KT Tape and possibly shakers. We will have a choice of two logos. I will post them when they are both completed and given to me.

We have the CrossFit Opens starting today. Joe registered CrossFit Texarkana as a team. We would like to see some athletes register to compete for the sport of it. I know we have a couple that really want to advance and I know we have a few that would like to see where we stand in the big scheme of things.

We will be on week four with our strength. This is a deload week. We will not schedule the lifts this week. If you have not found a beginning max for the lifts or if you need to find a new max with good form (as many of you do) then we will do so before the WOD as time allows. If you reached a max that compromised form and proper technique you are finding that your percentages have Read More...
