Pull Your Head Out Of Your Ass.

Let this week’s Power Athlete Radio episode be a lesson to you all. If you find yourself within proximity of both an ocean and Raph Ruiz [@raphruizS3], you will be tested. The Crew heads to Tampa to take over CrossFit TAS’s warm up for 17.1 and answers your questions. Topics like: How to battle your arch nemesis, plantar fasciitis; What you kneed to know about rehabbing ACL injuries; and it’s normal to barf after 15 burpees but only if your pre workout consisted of expired shellfish.

Need ideas on priming the pump for your next WOD off? Get your chili hot with the 2017 CrossFit Open Warm Up Series. Each warm up is tailored for each Open WOD, taking the guess work out of how to perfectly prepare movements and energy systems. Get a glimpse into the magic/science that will have you performing at your best AND minimize your risk for injury so that you can crush the next. Because no one was ever satisfied with just one WOD.


Stop faking the funk with your bullshit warm up. When we say that the Warm Up sets the tone for the workout, we mean it. From priming your system to mentally preparing yourself, the warm up represents your dedication to performance.
