Outlier annual Swolemate Showdown is this Saturday! There are over 40 teams competing, and we have 15 Outlier teams signed up. Come cheer on your fellow Outliers competing in a full day of fitness.
2019 CrossFit Open
The Open is just around the corner! Yes I know the CrossFit Games season is much different this year. But we are still going to challenge ourselves in the Open just as in years past. The Open is comprised of five workouts over five weeks. Workouts are are released on Thursdays by CrossFit HQ, and competitors have until the following Monday to complete the workout and log their scores.
We as a gym will be performing the workouts in a group setting on either Friday evenings or Saturday mornings (stay tuned for more info on that). Similar to last year, we will turn the open into a intramural style gym competition. Four teams will be formed after week 1 after 5 weeks, one team will be on top. Last year we had over 50 people participate…the more people the more fun! You do not need to official register on the CrossFit website to participate in the gym intramural competition.

Death by 50m sled push
Rest 5 minutes, then move onto the next metcon. There will be a running clock for both metcons.

Perform a 50m sled push (to the end of the stairs and back) every minute on the minute. Add weight (men add a 25# plate, women add a 15# plate) each minute. Continue until failure.
Staggered start…once a person fails, they must bring their sled back to the starting line so another person can get started on the top of the next minute (reset the weights). Note your starting time (after the 5 minute rest) for accurate time keeping.
