    We know lots of you travel for work or for fun (or both) and want to stay active on your trip. If there isn't a CrossFit gym to drop into, check out these On the Road WODs from Reebok CrossFit One. Pick the ones that suit your needs/environment best!

    Today's WOD



    5 set x 5 reps

    The work sets are getting heavy! Here are your options:

    • If you can add #5 or so, do it and use that new weight for your work sets.
    • If you failed any of your previous work sets, use that same weight and try to do all 5 sets of 5 reps at that weight.
    • If you fail a set, that set ends. Re-rack the bar and rest while your partner goes.
    • If you are not sure what weight to try today, talk to the coach.

    You will be lifting with partners. Help each other change out weights to make the lifting time go smoothly.

    You have 20 minutes to finish your lifts.

    Front Squat

    5 sets x 5 reps

    The work sets are getting heavy! Here is the deal:

    • If you can add between 5-10# to your work set, do it.
    • If you failed a few sets at your previous work weight, use that weight again today and try to do all 5 sets of 5 reps without failing.
    • If you fail a set, that set ends. Re-rack the bar and rest while your lifting partner goes.
    • If you're not sure if you can add weight, talk to the coach for advice.

    You will most likely have to lift with a partner or two. Help each other change out weights so all lifting goes smoothly. Remember, teamwork makes the dream work.
