SBCF is now sharing our strength programming and WODs in a different way. Click on the link below to see our workouts on our electronic Whiteboard : https://members.shockoebottomcrossfit.com/admin/workout.
Check this link through out the day to see what your teammates at SBCF are putting up for the workouts. WODs will be logged at the gym and you can see past results as well. Please login and sign up for each class that you come to, if not, your name will not show up on this page for workouts. This blog page will now be used for tips, helpful articles, suggestions and corrections from coaches, and auxiliary work to WODS.
Note: Workouts are updated nightly for the next day but the input results dont switch over till 12am, so when looking at past workouts, the results will be for previous day shown
So we are all done with maxing and we are entering a new mesocycle, that will last for 12 weeks and will take us into the middle of Feb. I love finishing up a cycle and starting new ones because in an essence it is a bit of a redo/start over button. It makes the programming fresh again and brings new phases of lifting and conditioning to the athletes. One thing that is always good for making gains is keeping the body guessing. Falling into a stale routine can not only be bad for hitting a physical plateau but a mental one as well. I definitely envision this new cycle to bring exciting and challenging movements built in a way that will maximize the progress that you are seeing out of the program. Within this 12 weeks, we are kee...Read more

Hey guys lots going on at SBCF right now;. Sorry there haven’t been too much updates lately on the blog. We got a bunch to drop on you right now though!!
First, we want to release the announcement of out last On Ramp class for the year. This will start Nov 29th, Dec 1st, and Dec 3rd. Same as last time. This will be a 3 week introduction to the common movements of crossfit, Oly/ power lifting, and gymnastics, given tues, thurs @ 7:15, and sat @ 10am. This is an amazingly successful program for starting people on their fitness journeys. Note: this class will take precedence over the 7:15 L1 class during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience, but this is very helpful at transitioning newbies and helps everyone in the long run....Read more

Hey Guys! Sorry its been a little while since weve updated the blog. Hopefully yall have been getting your SBCF info straight from us in the gym! We do have a couple new updates that I think is worthy to put up here though.
First, a little update with the schedule: Hopefully this is going to work with the coaches and members’ work/life schedule so this should be the last time we change things around. We know its annoying to get used to new class times so we do apologize but we think this is going to help everyone! We are going to all morning classes, M-F, at 5:40 and 6:40am. 5:40 will always be L1 and 6:40 will always be Funds. In addition to that we are rolling out a new type of class. This will be called our “Express”...Read more

The week of all weeks has finally arrived! The week where everything is put to the test. The week that we tell Sir Isaac Newton to piss off with his so called laws of gravity. This is the week of chest puffin, testosterone pumpin, hand chalkin heavy lifting. THIS IS MAX WEEK BABY!!
Monday we will be starting out with the most difficult test. The Snatch! Remember all the cues you’ve learned. Scoop those knees under the bar; keep those elbows over top of the bar in your scarecrow position. Also, take some extra time on the warm up; work your positions with an empty bar. Wednesday will consist of my favorite, the Clean and Jerk and Friday will be the make up day for any of you who miss a day. Since we’re doing such heavy lifting...Read more
