Andrea Ager with a 125 Bear on her last round. Notice she goes straight in to a thruster, she DID NOT PAUSE between movements, YES it still counts but we want to insure that you all complete the movements since not everyone has done BEAR before. and also notice her fight to not let go of the bar!!!

K Starr has some awesome mobility wods for your Feet. That's right People FEET! These videos are great lessons on how to take care of your feet with running or walking in general

Hey MWodies,
Today’s mission is part two of our series with Running Master Brian MacKenzie of Crossfit Endurance.   Your mission is to spend 10 minutes a day for the next 5 days working only on your feet.  Remember that you are system of systems.  You need full range of motion, motor control, and normal tissues in all of your moving bits.  But, man do we run into some pretty crappy feet.  No wonder the foot fetish is such a rare thing.  Very few people have feet that are worthy.  If you are an operator or soldier having to wear a high heel combat boot, this episode is also for you.  Take  care of your dogs yo!

20seconds of work, with 10 seconds of rest, for 8 rounds of the following movements.

13.3 Karen, double unders, muscle ups
13.4 Clean and Jerks, toes to bar

To say you all gave all and left all, is a understatement. We witnessed PRs, first heavy snatches, first chest to bar pull-ups, first 9ft wall balls, the list goes on and on. You all proved to yourself that nothing in CrossFit is impossible. NOTHING.
The Centurion Coaches are very proud of each and everyone of you. We appreciate everyone who came out, to motivate, athletes, They bled, sweat, cried, and jumped for joy with each other. For all of you who completed the wods in Class on Fridays. WAY TO GO!! CrossFit is not only a community it is a family and we are a strong family.

13.5!!!! THE FINAL OPEN WOD of 2013!

Friday and Saturday, 5 & 6 April 2013

You guys know the game, time to bring the pain!!!!

Like previous weekends class will execute 13.5 at all scheduled times! If you elect to be graded, please wait until class is over and find a trainer to grade you. Bar space on the pull-up rig will be at a premium for Games athletes so by waiting until the conclusion of class it will ensure you have your spot for competition. For Saturday, we will begin grading at 0830 and go until about 1030. Some of the Coaches have other obligations on Saturday so there will not be many of us around after 1030. Those coaches who are available can continue to grade as needed. Please try to be at the box between 0830-1030 on Saturday.

There is NO FOUNDATIONS class this Saturday. Even though it is the first Saturday of the month we are not offering Foundations. Please let anyone inquiring know that we still at max capacity for most of our classes and probably wont offer Foundations until next month.

Please be sure to watch the entire workout instruction video (above).
This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell on the floor and the Athlete standing tall. Using a ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed. Every rep counts in this workout. You will enter your score as the total number of reps. See the Scorecard for assistance in calculating the rep total.
Time Bonus
This workout begins as a standard four-minute AMRAP of 15 thrusters and 15 chest-to-bar pull-ups. If the Athlete completes 90 reps (three complete rounds) before the time cap, there is a four-minute time bonus. The workout is now an eight-minute AMRAP.
The Athlete can continue working as fast as possible (i.e. there is no requirement to rest or wait until four minutes are up). For example, if an athlete completes three rounds in 3:00, their time is extended to 8:00 and they can immediately begin working on their fourth round, with five minutes remaining.
Now, if the Athlete completes 180 reps (six complete rounds) before the eight-minute time cap, there is another four-minute time bonus. The workout is now a 12-minute AMRAP. If the Athlete completes 270 reps (9 complete rounds) before the 12-minute mark, the workout becomes a 16-minute AMRAP. This pattern repeats indefinitely, as long as an additional 90 reps are completed before the time cap.
Further explanation of the bonus time can be found here.


To complete this workout you will need:
• A barbell that is loaded to the appropriate weight for your division
• A pull-up bar
*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 45 kg for the Men, 29 kg for the Women, 29 kg for the Masters Men, 20 kg for the Masters Women.
Video Submission Standards
Click here to see an example of a valid video submission.
Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be clearly seen. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so that it is clear that proper depth and lock out is being reached on the thrusters and the chest can be seen touching the bar on the pull-ups.

It's Spring, You know what that means.......

You are invited to 


 When: Friday April 5th 2013
Where: Centurion CrossFit Fort Hood
Time: 0530-1730

Tomorrow after each class, athletes will clean up after themselves. SERIOUSLY. the gym is getting dirty and its starting to get really gross. We will move equipment to sweep, mop, and organize. everyone who uses the equipment should help clean up.
