Newest Nutrition Option at CrossFit Southie: Fuel for Fire!
We’re psyched to announce that we have just started carrying Fuel for Fire! Their product is called a “Fuel Pack,” which is real food (bananas, apples, and/or sweet potatoes) and 10 grams of whey protein in a squeezable pouch. It’s unsweetened, gluten-free, and contains nothing artificial. Fuel Packs are great for pre or post-workout, a protein-rich snack, or on competition days between events. No refrigeration required, so you can just throw one in your bag for whenever you may need it! These will be available at the front desk (refrigerated if you’d like) for $3.50 a pack. Just a friendly reminder that our Fuel Bar items are ca$h only, so please come prepared. We cannot add these items to your account. To learn more about Fuel for Fire, click here, or ask one of your coaches!

CrossFit Southie Apparel Update
Spring is on the rise and we’ve restocked our apparel inventory with plenty of tank tops and shirts in all the sizes. Now is your opportunity to pick up some fresh new swag to show off those crossfit bods. Don’t be surprised if the authorities ask if you have a license for those guns! We are also creating sweet new t-shirts for Regionals this year and we’re asking for your creative slogans to be placed on the back. Please post to comments your favorite motivational quotes or taglines, and yours could be used!

    WOD: 14:11 RX (#175 DL’s)
    -Next time will go for unbroken DL’s

    I love that we are going to be doing benchmarks more often. Love making progress!
    9/13/13 – 15:23 Rx
    11/1/13 – 14:26 Rx
    4/2/14 – 13.38 Rx

    Definitely could’ve pushed harder tonight, but my goal was sub 14 and I got there. Had to use 5 lbs more tonight than my previous two times but my deadlifts were by far the strongest part of this workout. They felt pretty phenomenal. I can definitely go faster on the box jumps so I’m looking forward to retesting this! Hoping for sub 13

  3. Chelsea 04/03/2014 at 3:26 am

    Wow.. first Christine. 19:01 Rx. A lot harder/worse than I thought it was going to be!

  4. Jason 04/03/2014 at 2:50 am

    Christine 11:30 @170#

  5. Kristin 04/03/2014 at 1:55 am

    CFS – Where beer (or beer bellies, ha ha) and barbells collide.

  6. Leann Christina 04/03/2014 at 1:41 am

    chirstine – 11:45 rx , PR by 30sec, thank you to coach Haley!
    CFS- can’t stop, won’t stop

  7. Kelly 04/03/2014 at 12:57 am

    12:15Rx. Somehow took 40 seconds off my time from last September! I had to add 5 extra beer pounds to the bar, though. Oops.

    “Dot Ave Barbell Club” (in old-timey writing. On a singlet).
    “Be Faster. Be Stronger. Be Hungrier.” (or is it more hungry??? I guess that would kind of ruin it, huh?)

  8. Joel 04/03/2014 at 12:43 am

    Christine – 14:09 Rx dead lifts (#135) and 20 inch box

  9. Matt 04/02/2014 at 9:22 pm

    “Nothin’ But Freaks”
    That is a winning slogan if you ask me

  10. Petra 04/02/2014 at 5:55 pm

    12:33 RX. That’s over a minute slower than my PR, I guess it’s time to get back in shape.

  11. Ben Goodkind 04/02/2014 at 5:35 pm

    “Say Yes to the Dress”

  12. Crowley 04/02/2014 at 4:29 pm

    9:07rx which I think is a 12 second PR, I think I could have gone sub 9 had I not gotten tripped up on the first round of box jumps, I’ll get it next time!

  13. amy 04/02/2014 at 4:02 pm

    Let’s get some more up here guys. Winning slogan will get some free swag. Last year we used Ranjith’s “Lay your heart out”

  14. John Ziegler 04/02/2014 at 3:13 pm

    “Strength Through Unity – CFS”

  15. Mike Quigley 04/02/2014 at 1:27 pm

    10:27RX. I was 10:55 last time. 10:44 is my best ever, so I’m happy with this morning. I’m 10# heavier than my previous best – and I’m just going to go ahead and assume all 10 of those pounds are muscle. The DL get heavy at the end.

  16. Rob Hassell 04/02/2014 at 12:16 pm

    10:22 Rx vs 11:18 in November ’13

  17. kara 04/02/2014 at 12:06 pm

    I will start by saying that I would rather do 14.5 again then do Christine. That said, I trudged in anyway, and did it. 15:33 RX (165#)

  20. Rob Hassell 04/02/2014 at 12:56 am

    Fuel for fire sweet apple flavor is delicious and perfect for the ride into the 530am class.

  21. L Lebo 04/02/2014 at 12:38 am

    Dying to start back up at CFS tomorrow. I have missed this place, the coaches, and my workout friends. Super scaled Christine might kill me, but I CANT WAITTTTT!!!!!
