“For the eighth time, Spartans are invited to participate in the Fenway Stadium. Gain unprecedented access to previously closed off areas of America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.

Do burpees in the clubhouse, run on the warning track, and sprint through the finish line at home plate. With the Green Monster as the backdrop, Fenway is a perfect race for the whole family.

Additionally, take in historic Lansdowne street and Kenmore Square in the surrounding areas of the park. Once you finish the race, there is so much more the beautiful city of Boston has to offer.”


1. Fenway is America’s oldest ballpark. There is history etched into the very foundations of the park. Wouldn’t you want to run on the same field the greatest baseball players of all-time have played on?

2. The kids will have a chance to run with Wally The Green Monster, the official mascot of the Red Sox.

3. Some of the most popular restaurants in Boston are a spear throw away from Fenway. Boston Beer Works, Cask’n Flagon, and Neptune Oyster to name a few.

#TBT – 2013, Recognize it?!

The Showdown is Coming…
We’re excited to announce that our 9th annual Southie Showdown will be held on September 21st & 22nd! This is a two-day individual competition designed to challenge first-time competitors, fire-breathers and everyone in between. We have three divisions – Advanced, Rx, & Intermediate and expect over 250 athletes to compete! With such a large event, we could really use the help of our CFS Community! We’re looking for Judges and Volunteers. If you have friends/family that would like to help out as well, they are welcome too!

Want to Help Out?

There are plenty of opportunities to get involved at some point over the weekend. No contribution is too small, and we thank you so much in advance for your help!

Judging is an awesome way to be involved in the action all weekend long and is a crucial job to running the Showdown. If you can count and are familiar with CrossFit movements, we can teach you how to judge – no experience required. All judges will receive a free t-shirt and lunch each day. To sign up to judge, please click HERE.

Not interested in judging, but still want to help out? You can be a volunteer! We have plenty of other jobs that we need help with – from working at the CFS retail tent, helping change out equipment, collecting score cards, etc. To see available jobs and to sign up to volunteer, please click HERE.

We thank you in advance for your support and we’re looking forward to another amazing Showdown!

“…my palms start to sweat, how can a workout make me feel so queasy? The coach yells “3, 2..” I guess this means it’s time… “..1, go!” I’m out the door on my first 400. I’m excited and moving really fast but decide to take it down a notch and settle into a pace…I don’t want to red-line. On my way back, I’m the first one in and right on my kettlebell. Aggressively ripping the kettlebell down each time and firing it back up to near regional standard, 21 swings in a row. I drop the bell and jump right on the bar for 12 easy butterflies and I’m back out the door. I’m breathing a little heavier now, can I keep up this pace? The 200 out seems longer, but I feel like I’m running close to the same speed but with my body a little weaker. All I can think about is how are these swings going to feel this go around? Back in the door, immediately back on the bell. 21 in a row and right up on the bar. I feel my grip starting to wear but I’m able to knock out the pull ups and head back out the door. Time to push and hold on for dear life. I pick up the pace on the run. My mouth is dry, I feel like I might throw up, I want to slow down, I want to stop at the turn around but suddenly realize this will all be over soon…. I pick up the pace even more on the way back. In through the door with a quick glance at the clock. I can make it if I move! Back on the bell aggressively ripping it down and locking it out over my head for another unbroken set. No time for chalk during this wod, back on the pull up bar, holding on for dear life for every last rep until I hit my 12. I drop from the bar and look over my shoulder up at the clock.. a new PR and thankfully a long time before I have a run in with that bitch “Helen” again….”

In this event, barbells will start unloaded. Athletes are responsible for loading their own barbells and confirming their weight with their judge before each attempt. Clips are required for each attempt. Athletes can take as many attempts as they choose, and can add/remove weight from the barbell as desired. Hands must stay on the barbell for the entirety of the complex. After completing the 2 power cleans, the barbell cannot pass below the shoulders.

Power Clean
Both side of the barbell must start touching the ground at the same time. The hips may not pass below parallel in the catch (no squat cleans!). Split cleans are allowed. Athletes must stand to full extension with their feet under their hips at the top of each rep.

Front Squat
Combining the 2nd power clean and the 1st front squat into a squat clean is NOT permitted. No genie squats will be allowed. At the bottom of the rep, hip crease must clearly pass below the knee. Athletes must stand to full extension at the top of each rep in order for it to count.

Shoulder to Overhead

Combining the 2nd front squat and 1st shoulder to overheard into a thruster is NOT permitted. Any type of jerk is allowed. At the top of each rep, athletes must stand to full extension with their feet under the hips and clear control of the barbell in order for the rep to count. If the athlete fails the jerk, he/she can reattempt as long as the barbell does not pass below the shoulders.

Each lane will contain the following equipment:
1 Barbell (45# for men, 35# for women)
2 Pair 45# Plates

The Wall Ball Shot….Why We Love Them!

Publish on Comments(0)

Fanning – Super Hero

The wall ball shot is a classic CrossFit movement that combines the front squat and overhead press into one highly functional and useful exercise. Anyone who has ever done the workout “Karen” (150 wallball for time) knows how much endurance, both cardiovascular and muscular, is required to do high reps of wall ball in any time domain.

Maintaining good form throughout the movement is key. Keeping the ball high on the chest (like the front rack of the front squat) while keeping our weight on our heels from top to bottom of the squat will help delay muscle fatigue by keeping us as efficient as possible throughout the movement.

Lisi nailing that 10 foot target at The In-House Throwdown!

Thinking of it as a thruster, using the power of our hip drive from the bottom to the top of our squat to propel the ball upwards, will also help get that ball up to the target every toss. Speaking of targets…the accuracy element to wall ball shots is and integral part that a lot of people don’t focus on. There are target areas all over both boxes at CF Southie. The only way to improve your wall balls is to shoot for as high a target as possible while also aiming for and hitting the middle of a designated and specific target.

Wall ball workouts are not supposed to mean we just blindly chuck med balls against the wall anywhere we please. Set your sights on a target and go for it every single time. If you need to scale down your weight to reach a higher target then do so. Going as high as possible and forcing yourself to hit a target will be difficult but will bring quick rewards. Once you are hitting the 10ft target consistently you should increase the weight of your medball until you are doing RX weight. Aim high, challenge yourselves…
