31Heroes WOD & Fundraiser!

Even 2020 can’t ruin our favorite WOD of the year – 31Heroes!

On Saturday, Aug 15 we’ll host our ⭐10th annual⭐ 31Heroes fundraiser!

What is the 31 Heroes Fundraiser?

On August 6, 2011, 30 Americans and 1 military K9 lost their lives when their CH-47 Chinook helicopter was downed in Afghanistan. This tragedy happened only days after ICA opened its doors, and it has become our annual fundraising mission. Each year, since 2011, we’ve hosted the 31Heroes WOD and fundraiser to honor these fallen heroes and raise money to support their families and others in the veteran community suffering from TBI and PTSD.

This year will look different as we’ll be doing a socially-distant version of the WOD. It willl be held OUTSIDE, RAIN OR SHINE! The workout is free for members and guests. Donations are encouraged but not required. All participants must pre-register by reserving a spot in class.

WOD Description

In teams of 2, complete an AMRAP in 31 minutes of:
  • 8R + 8L thrusters (50/35#)
  • 6 burpees 
  • 11 box jumps (28/24″)

Parter 1 runs 400m while Partner 2 performs thrusters/burpees/box jumps on repeat. When Partner 1 returns, they pick up where Partner 2 left off. Your team score = total rounds + reps as a team. Partners will share a box but have their own KB/DB unless they live together.

Logistics & Safety:

  • Try to find a partner in advance, though we can pair you up the day of if needed. Try to find a partner who can jump to the same box height as you.
  • The parking lot will be closed for the safety of our athletes. Park on Jefferson St. or across W. Bridge St. in the apartments.
  • BYO mat for burpees. If you have a KB, DB, and/or box, please bring them with you, though our “house” equipment will be available for use.
  • Attendees should wear masks when not actively working out and maintain 6′ distancing at all times.
Fundraising Note: We have been one of the top fundraisers every year since 2011! If you are able to donate, there are lots of ways to get involved; pick what’s best for you:
  1. Join our team as a member and individually fundraise for 31Heroes under our team umbrella. If you raise at least $31 you get a 31Heroes tee/tank. The more you raise, the more neat gear you get! Follow this link, click “WOD & Fundraise” and join team ICA.
  2. Make a donation directly to our team, here.
  3. Purchase a tank or t-shirt ($31) and have it credited to team ICA, here.
  4. Make a cash/check donation via the donation box at the gym.
As always, donations are optional. What we care about most is everyone coming together to participate in the workout and remember and honor our fallen heroes! We hope to see you there!!

Coach Dave

Workout of the Day

Complete for time:

  • 1 mile run
  • 100 sit-ups
  • 100 one-arm DB/KB thrusters (50R/50L @ 50/35#)

WOD Notes: For this WOD, you can do the movements in any order, but you have to complete all the reps of each movement before moving to the next (i.e., no breaking into rounds). So you can run/situp/thruster, or thruster/situp/run, or any other order you desire.

Schedule Notes: Today’s classes will be held outside in the parking lot. Remember to bring a mat/towel for the ground, and BYO KB/DB if you have one you’d like to use! We are keeping class caps low so we can move inside if it decides to rain. Sunday’s classes will be inside.

Kids’ first snatch lesson

Workout of the Day

Complete (not for time):

  • 1000m row
  • 20 bench presses (approx 65%)
  • 1500m row
  • 10 bench presses (approx 65%)

WOD Notes: Although this workout overall is not for time, each row is for time! You’ll post to SugarWOD the weight you used on the bench press (main score) as well as all 3 row times (separate scores). Please bring a mask and wear it for the bench press portion of the workout; this will keep your spotter out of direct “line of fire” if they need to jump in and spot you. The goal for the bench press is to break the sets as needed so you never actually fail. Compare to 170425.

WOD Notes: For the overhead squat you can increase weight each set, starting at ~50% of your 1RM and going up to ~80%. Start a new set every 3 minutes. If you are unable to achieve a stable overhead squat position, you have 2 options: 1) Modify to front squats (especially if you missed front squats last week) or 2) Complete 6 rounds of 10 empty-barbell overhead squats & 10 strict presses, starting a new round every 2 minutes. If you do front squats, there is a separate WOD in SugarWOD so you can track back more easily in the future.

Welcome Kevin W!

Workout of the Day

AMRAP in 12 minutes of:

  • 10 thrusters (115/75#)
  • 8 toes-to-bar

WOD Notes: The thrusters are on the heavy side, on purpose! Pick a weight where you can do the 1st round unbroken, but you’ll likely end up breaking later rounds into 2 sets of 5. Your T2B should also be something you can do the first round unbroken. Subs include toes-to-post, knee raises, two-leg mountain climbers, or an ab movement of your choice!

Daily WOD – Jul 18, 2020

Chris Mc with a solid pull up!

  • Double unders (Rx=unbroken)
  • Plank knees to elbow (1 touch = 1 rep)

WOD Notes:  Please bring your own rope if you are coming to class tomorrow as our “house ropes” will not be permitted in the parking lot.  Burpees (3-6-9-12-15-12-9-6-3) or jumping jacks (same rep scheme) are also valid options if you don’t have a rope!

Schedule Notes:  Due to temperature concerns, the 10:00 am class has been cancelled and a 7:00 am has been added.  Come out to enjoy some of that cool morning air!

Cate S

Workout of the Day

Push jerk 5-5-3-3-1-1-1

Then

Complete 3 rounds for max reps:

  • Left-arm KB/DB push press or jerk – 30 seconds
  • 30 seconds rest
  • Right-arm KB/DB push press or jerk – 30 seconds
  • 30 seconds rest

WOD Notes: For the push jerk, record your heaviest set of 5, 3, and 1. Lift conservatively and treat the singles as a “working max” – meaning there should be no failures! If you have any pain with the jerk or your mobility doesn’t allow for a solid overhead position, modify to push presses. For the 2nd part of the workout, record your KB/DB weight and total reps across all 3 rounds. There is an optional cash-out in SugarWOD that likely won’t fit within the 60 minute class, but you can do it at home or in the parking lot after class!

Schedule Notes: This Saturday’s classes will be held outside! We moved class times up an hour to beat the heat. Classes are at 7am, 8am, and 9am (this week only!). Thank you for your cooperation and help keeping our community a little safer!

200 steps lateral banded walk (100R/100L)

WOD Notes: Today is a conventional deadlift. You should warm up to approx 70% of your 1RM and then stay at that weight for all 5 sets. It should be heavy but something you can move smoothly and with perfect form. If you have been lifting independently over the last few months you can increase the percentage slightly (NTE 80%).

Schedule Notes: Sunday’s 9am & 10am classes will be held outside in the parking lot. Remember to bring a towel or mat for the ground, and have a mask on hand to use the bathroom. BYO KB/DB or borrow one of ours. Come get your WOD on and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine! 🌞

Rest 3 minutes, then

Complete 3 rounds for time of:

Cash Out

Not for time:

  • 50 crunches
  • 50 Russian twists (25R/25L, unweighted)

WOD Notes: The DB/KB snatches start from the ground each rep, but you do not need to alternate hands each rep. The @Home version is the same as @ICA version. If you want to work out but don’t have a KB/DB at home, modify both halves of the workout to 3 rds of 250m run, 16 burpees. (It will be longer but SO MUCH FUN!)

Schedule Notes: Classes will be held in the parking lot to accommodate additional athletes, especially those who are not comfortable attending indoor WODs. Quick reminder on protocol:

  • We recommend you BYO mat/rug to protect your hands and knees
  • When you arrive, proceed to a cone and set up directly behind it.
  • Athletes can use our “house” KB/DBs or BYO equipment if you prefer
  • Masks are required in the bathrooms but are not required at any other times

Community Notes: Happy birthday Blythe!

If you are willing to switch to the 7:00am class time, please do so tonight so other athletes can backfill behind you. Thank you!

Community Notes: Please continue to give us your feedback – concerns, questions, suggestions, out-of-the-box ideas. It is our goal to provide an open, positive, and safe environment for our members. If there’s anything we can do to improve your experience we want to know!

Equipment Note: Remember to bring chalk if you’ll want it for the clean and jerks! We also recommend a mat or towel for child’s pose.

A bad ass, kick ass crew showed up for the Last Outdoor WOD of the COVID shutdown!

Workout of the Day

Row 1000m row for time

Cash Out

Max consecutive strict pull ups/chin ups

WOD Notes: Welcome back ICA!!! Day 1 in the box and we’re gonna lift heavy! Normally we would complete 5×5  squats at approx 75% of your 1RM; today we’re taking it back a notch to 65%. Over the next 2 months we’ll slowly work our way back to heavier weights, targeting new 1RMs in September. For the cash out, if you can’t do at least 5 strict pull ups, use a band or sub ring rows.

At-Home WOD: The at-home version of the WOD is posted to SugarWOD, including a recommended warm-up and cool-down. (The Cash out is the same for in-gym and at-home.) There is a short video demoing each of the movements in case you need a refresher!

Also be aware that our cancellation policy is now 4 hours in order to not be considered a late cancel. For additional information please reference: COVID Operating Guidelines and ICA Member Manual.

Class Registration: Classes may fill up these first few weeks; everyone is excited to get back in the box! Please be patient while attendance stabilizes. If you can attend “off hour” class times, please do! To help meet demand we have added a 7:00am class M-F. This class will be on the schedule throughout the summer, and we’ll reevaluate in the fall. We also added a 14th work out station (using the yoke!) to accommodate 1 additional person per class.

Standard Membership: Due to the addition of the 7am class and the 14th spot in class, we are excited to say we can accommodate up to 14 visits/month on the Standard membership. This will be effective immediately (July 1).

Membership Notes: We are hopeful that good news will be announced tomorrow about ICA’s reopening, which we expect will be late next week! We are putting the finishing touches on the physical upgrades to the gym and finalizing our operating policies for the Green phase. Our goal, as it has always been, is to provide a safe environment where our members can improve their health and quality of life through fitness. The physical changes made to the gym, along with the restructuring of our membership levels, are founded in our commitment to the highest safety and quality. We will continue to look for ways to add value to our memberships, whether it be adding additional workout stations so we can accommodate 15 instead of 13 in a class; increasing the number of classes/month for the Standard membership (Unlimited is currently sold out); adding more class times to the schedule; and/or increasing the number of Unlimited memberships we offer. Right now, our focus is on reopening safely and ensuring every member has fair access to classes. We continue to have a lot of great conversations with our members who have questions regarding the membership changes; if you have questions or concerns and haven’t reached out yet, please call or email us any time. We can’t wait to get back into the gym with you!!!!!!

Nik & Kelsey

At-Home Workout #95

Warm Up

2 rounds of:

  • 3 inchworms
  • 10 squats 
  • 20 jumping jacks
  • 30 high knees

Downward dog calf stretch (30 sec, pulsing/alternating)

Runner’s stretch (5R/5L)

Workout of the Day

  • Load up a backpack or rucksack to 50/35# (scale: 35/20#) and walk/ruck 2 miles. Every 400m, stop and perform 10 push ups and 20 squats (weighted).

Cool Down

  • Seated spinal twist (30s/side)
  • Hurdler’s stretch (30s/side)

WOD Notes: Click here for a video explanation of today’s workout. If you have access to a trail, this would be fun to complete as a hike! If you come to class, you can complete 2 laps of the 1 mile route; 4 laps of the 800m; or 8 laps of the 400m. Bring your own pre-loaded backpack! If you don’t have a sturdy pack available to you, you can carry your KB/DB any way you’d like. Rucks can be fast walks or slow runs… but you should always keep moving. There will be a 40 minute time cap on this WOD. Post to comments or SugarWOD: Time. Note weight used, modifications. 

Membership Notes: We’ve gotten some questions about the membership changes that were sent out by email on Sunday. If you have any questions, please reach out! The bottom line is we want to minimize how often classes are filled to capacity. We don’t want anyone paying for a membership that they can’t use. The 13 person class cap is going to greatly increase the quality of our instruction and your member experience, but it’s a 30% decrease in capacity. To combat this we are: 1) Encouraging/incentivizing individuals to commit to 3 classes/week (where possible), and 2) Significantly reducing our total membership. The membership changes stemmed from those two things. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Please email, text or call us any time. 

Schedule Notes: We’ve gotten some questions on class times. When we reopen on June 26, we plan to offer the following classes:
  • Weekdays: 5a, 6a, 9a, [10a teen], 12p, 3:30p, 4:45p, 6:00p, 7:15p (except Fridays)
  • Saturday: 8, 9, 10 — Outdoor
  • Sunday: 9, 10 — Outdoor
Once the teen summer program ends we’ll likely make the 10am a regular adult class, as early as Aug 3. Evening classes are separated by 15 minutes to allow for cleaning & transition time. These classes tend to be very full and can get congested at turnover. We did not build in transition time between the morning classes because they tend to run smaller and a bit faster (since people are quick to leave to get to work). If we realize we more time between morning classes we may push the 6a to 6:15a. Evening classes will return to their previously scheduled 4, 5, 6, 7pm once COVID restrictions clear.

Community Notes: We hope you can join us for our Outdoor Movie Night this Friday (6/12) in the ICA parking lot!! We are really looking forward to a fun community evening with all of you, to celebrate our area’s transition to Yellow, the fact that we all survived 3 months of quarantine, and the excitement that we’re going to be opening up again soon!! Bring chairs or picnic blankets, beverages, etc, and set up in the parking lot with at least 6′ distance between families. Show up around 8:00pm and the movie will start around 8:30pm. Special thanks to Whitehorse Women’s Rugby for donating to the event. Our original plan was to show “The Fittest,” which is a movie about Mat Fraser and Tia Clair Toomey, both multiple repeat champions of the CrossFit Games. Given the recent events in the CrossFit community, we have decided to step away from that film. Instead we are leaning towards showing “Fullsterkur,” which is a Rogue Strongman documentary about the country of Iceland and the incredibly strong athletes it has produced. There’s a chance we’ll change our minds again before Friday, but let’s be honest – this night isn’t really about the movie anyway! We can’t wait to spend a warm summer evening with some of the people we’ve missed most these last 3 months!

Daily COVID Note: Once we move to Green phase, hopefully 6/19 or 6/26, we’ll collect the equipment we loaned out. We encourage every ICA member to purchase a KB/DB and jump rope for home use. If possible, we also recommend an abmat, medicine ball, and plyo box. We had previously committed to releasing 2 at-home WODs each week. However, our current thought is we’ll release an at-home version of every Daily WOD – meaning 7 days/week! That way, any time you can’t make it to ICA, you’ll be able to do a workout from home that resembles the WOD we’re doing at the gym. The at-home version will be posted only to SugarWOD. We’ve all gotten pretty good at working out from home over these last 3 months, and we expect it will continue to play a large role in our fitness going forward!

CrossFit, Inc. Notes: We have been following the events of the last 2 days regarding comments made by the CrossFit CEO, Greg Glassman. We want to state unequivocally that we do not support his views. We feel angry, confused, and betrayed. We also believe that CrossFit, Inc. is bigger than any one person. We join countless affiliates and athletes in calling on CrossFit, Inc. to use the events of this weekend as a catalyst for change. We are waiting with bated breath to see their next move. In our hearts, we believe that CrossFit has the potential to be a positive, unifying, and inclusive force in the world. However, whether or not we remain affiliated with CrossFit depends on the path chosen by CrossFit, Inc. going forward.

We also recognize that this isn’t just CrossFit, Inc.’s problem. It’s our personal responsibility to do more to fight systemic racism, regardless of the direction taken by CrossFit, Inc. The CrossFit methodology offers a unique solution to many of the world’s health problems, but its solution is only as good as its reach, and most underserved communities don’t have access to CrossFit. We are committed to doing more and being a better ally in in this regard. Even prior to Glassman’s remarks we had embarked on a new project… it’s in its infancy and we’ll reveal more as we finalize plans. We truly believe we have one of the best, most passionate, most loving and open-minded communities around. We believe Black Lives Matter. We believe Love is Love. We believe Kindness is Everything. Together, we can make a difference. #ICAstrong #BlackLivesMatter #ICAallies #YesWeCan #ICAFitFam

WOD Notes: Click here for a video explanation of today’s workout. Your goal should be to complete each farmer carry with one arm, alternating rounds. However, if you can’t hang on for the full 250, we’d rather you switch arms than stop altogether… since stopping will eat into your step up time!  During the box step ups, you can hold the DB/KB any way you want; we’d recommend a one-arm rack position. Alternate legs each rep. Post to comments and/or SugarWOD: Total number of box step ups completed across all 4 rounds, weight used.

Equipment Notes: If you’re coming to the Outdoor WOD,  remember to bring your jump rope, KB/DB, and lacrosse ball. Also, bring a box if you have one at home, otherwise our house boxes will be available for use.

The passcode was emailed out a few days ago; text or email us if you are an active member but did not get the email. See you at the virtual whiteboard!

Weather Note: There is a chance of rain tomorrow evening. We’ll decide by 4:00pm if we need to move the Outdoor WOD to Zoom. All athletes registered for class would get a text and email. Everyone else would know because Wellness Living would be updated to show “Virtual WOD” instead of “Outdoor WOD.” Be sure to check before you drive over!

You get to decide! Send us your suggestions and we’ll vote on a movie as it gets closer. (Something PG, please!)

Starting that same day, our current schedule of Virtual WODs will transition to Outdoor WODs. We’ll set up the laptop in the parking lot and stream the classes on Zoom for those who prefer to tie in virtually. Even more exciting – our Commissioners expect Chester County will transition to Green by the end of June, at which time can open up our gym again!

History of Murph: “Murph” is a CrossFit Hero WOD named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005, at the age of 29. Murphy graduated from Pennsylvania State University and was accepted to multiple law schools, but decided he could do more for his country as one of the Navy’s elite SEALS.  This workout was created by Murphy and was one of his favorites; he’d named it ‘Body Armor.’ It first appeared on the CrossFit site after his death, on August 18, 2005.

On June 28, 2005, the day he was killed, Murphy was leading a SEAL team in northeastern Afghanistan looking for the commander of a group of insurgents known as the Mountain Tigers. Engaged in a frenzied firefight and outnumbered by the Taliban, Navy Lt. Michael Murphy made a desperate decision as he and three fellow SEALs fought for their lives on a rocky mountainside in Afghanistan’s Kunar Province. In a last-ditch effort to save his team, Murphy pulled out his satellite phone, walked into a clearing to get reception and called for reinforcements as a fusillade of bullets ricocheted around him. One of the bullets hit him in the stomach, but he finished the call and even signed off, “Roger that, thank you,” before continuing battle. (If it sounds familiar, it’s because Murphy’s heroism is documented in, “Lone Survivor,” written by fellow SEAL Marcus Luttrell.)

Today we join CrossFit athletes around the country who are performing this hero WOD at their affiliates and in their garages in honor of the men and women who have died serving our country in the U.S. Armed Forces.

WOD Notes: Click here for a video explanation of today’s workout. Although Murph is going to be a lot different this year, with most of us performing it at home instead of at the gym, we are really looking forward to the shared suffering with you all! If you complete Murph, please post a picture in the blog comments and post your result to the blog and/or SugarWOD.

  1. Pull-ups are the most limiting movement in terms of equipment availability and strength. This year, the recommended sub for pull-ups is sit-ups. Other options include: two-arm bent-over rows or make a DIY “ring row” station.
  2. If push-ups are limiting for you, consider doing 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups.
  3. A popular scale is to complete exactly half the distances and reps (800m run, 50 pull ups, 100 push ups, 150 squats, 800m run.) “Half Murph” usually takes 20-40 minutes. Full Murph takes about an hour (+/- 20 min).
  4. Compare results to last Memorial Day 190527.

Outdoor WOD: We’ll have 2 outdoor group sessions, at 8:30am and 10:00am. We have space for 1 more athlete to use the outdoor pull-up rig in each class time; let us know if you want to reserve a space. Priority goes to athletes completing Murph Rx who do not have access to a pull up bar at home.

Community Notes: Happy birthday Jon Virtue!

New Member Perk: We are excited to offer a new perk to our members – a workout tracking app called SugarWOD! The app itself is free, and it’s already used by many of our athletes to track their own workouts. The “perk” is that we’ve purchased access at the affiliate level, so our members can access our virtual ICA Whiteboard! Each day we’ll post our workout, and you can log your results and photos, plus give fist bumps and leave comments for each other. The app is super social and offers a convenient way to track your personal workout history. It will also help you prepare for your workouts with easy access to your previous PRs, a barbell lift percentage calculator and a library of common CrossFit movements. If you’re an active member at ICA (2x/week or Unlimited), look for an email tomorrow with the password to access our SugarWOD whiteboard. A few notes:

  • If you’re a member now but you leave in the future, you will not lose access to your results! You can keep the app (it’s free for members!) and you’ll just lose access to our daily whiteboard.
  • If you choose to not download SugarWOD, please continue to post your results to the blog each day so we can keep track of how you’re doing!
  • For now we’ll be “double posting” our workouts – both to the blog and to SugarWOD. As we get more runtime with SugarWOD, we may use it as the primary method of workout delivery in the future.
  • If you complete a workout in place of or in addition to ICA’s daily WOD, you can post that result too, in the personal log book section of SugarWOD.
  • As of June 1, we’ll no longer email workouts via our RSS feed.

We hope you enjoy SugarWOD; please let us know what you think as you get into it!

24 Heroes Note: To kick off Memorial Day weekend, for the last several years, a group of ICA members has participated in a local fundraiser called 24 Heroes. The event was canceled this year, but two of our gym members are planning on doing an at-home version! Starting Friday morning at 7:00am, Nikki K and TINA! will perform a workout every hour for 24 hours. They have selected a local veteran support organization to support: Mini-Stand Down, based in Pottstown, which supplies vets in need with food and personal items. Nikki and TINA! will have a table set up for donations, so if you are interested in supporting their effort, please drive over to 29 Leatherwood Dr, Collegeville to cheer them on and drop off some items from this list.

COVID Update: We’re optimistic that Chester County will be moving to Yellow in early June. As a gym, we are precluded from opening until the Green phase. However, there has been a lot of support among our local legislators to allow small fitness studios to open sooner, with restrictions similar to those imposed in other states, and we’re hopeful that change is coming.  In the meantime, we’ve drafted operating guidelines for how ICA might run classes once we are allowed to open. Although they’re still draft, we wanted to share them with you all, so you can start envisioning what the gym might look like when we re-open. Feedback and suggestions are welcome. Click here to read the guidance.

Happy Hour: Zoom happy hour tonight at 6:30pm! Link here and use password ICASTRONG. BYOB!

Memorial Day Murph – May 25, 2020

A Guide to Your First MURPH | Icehouse Fit (CrossFit Icehouse)

On Monday, May 25, 2020, ICA will join tens of thousands of CrossFitters around the world in honoring the men and women who have died serving our country in the U.S. Armed Forces. The workout we’ll complete, Murph, is named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005, at the age of 29. Murphy graduated from Pennsylvania State University and was accepted to multiple law schools, but decided he could do more for his country as one of the Navy’s elite SEALS.  This workout was created by Murphy and was one of his favorites; he’d named it ‘Body Armor.’ It first appeared on the CrossFit site after his death, on 18 August 2005.

This year Murph will look a little different than normal. For starters, athletes across the U.S. will be performing the workout from their garages and driveways, rather than their local CrossFit affiliate. The most limiting movement in the workout is the pull-up (as far as strength and equipment limitations), so we have several at-home modification options for you to consider.

“Body Armor” aka “Murph”

Complete for time:

  • 1 mile run
  • 100 pull ups (sub: 100 sit ups)
  • 200 push ups
  • 300 squats
  • 1 mile run

WOD Notes:

  1. The workout starts and ends with a 1 mile run, but you can break up the pull-ups, push-ups and squats any way you’d like. The most common are 20 rds of 5/10/15 or 25 rounds of 4/8/12.
  2. The full version of the workout takes about an hour. Rx requires a 20/10# weight vest.
  3. A popular scale is to complete exactly half the distances and reps (800m run, 50 pull ups, 100 push ups, 150 squats, 800m run.) “Half Murph” usually takes 20-40 minutes.
  4. Pull-ups are the most limiting movement in terms of equipment availability and strength. We recommend that most of our athletes substitute 100 sit ups in place of the 100 pull ups. Other options include: two-arm bent-over rows or make a DIY “ring row” station.
  5. Compare results to last Memorial Day 190527.

Outdoor WOD: We’ll have 2 outdoor group sessions, at 8:30am and 10:00am. John and Ricky built a portable pull up rig (strict pull ups only) that can accommodate 4 athletes per class with 6′ spacing. Priority will go to athletes completing Murph Rx who do not have access to a pull up bar at home. If you are interested in reserving a spot on the rig, let us know asap.

WOD Notes: Click here for a video explanation of today’s workout. “Grace” is a CrossFit benchmark that consists of 30 reps of a power clean & jerk at 135/95#. The total weight lifted is 4050/2850#. For our at-home version, you can use any weighted object and lift it as many times as you need to in order to reach that total. If you are lifting an “odd object” (i.e., anything other than a barbell, kettlebell, or dumbbell), we recommend scaling to 2/3 reps.

Use the table below to help you figure out how many reps you need to complete with your DB/KB or odd object. For example, if you would typically do Grace at 115# but currently have a 40# DB, you would perform 87 reps. If you have questions, text your coach! There is a 10 minute time cap for this WOD.

Blog Notes:  We’ve learned that our website issues are related to widespread GoDaddy server issues. We’re hoping for a fast resolution, but we really don’t have an ETA. We’ll continue to email the workouts to all members until the website is fully functional again. In the meantime, if you can’t post your results to the blog, email them to us and we’ll get them posted when the website is working again!

Outdoor WOD Notes: (1) We can supply boxes for most athletes attending the outdoor WOD, but if you have one at home please bring it. (2) For those in need of a mat/carpet for the outdoor WODs, we tested out a few and found this one to hit the mark. It also comes in 2’x8′ for our taller athletes.

Schedule Notes/Outdoor WOD: We are very excited to announce the addition of an Outdoor WOD to our schedule! After consulting with local State Reps and the Phoenixville Police Dept, we’ve gotten the thumbs up to proceed with outdoor workouts in our parking lot. The Outdoor WOD will take place at 6pm Monday-Thursday, plus Saturday 9am and Sunday 10am. Here are the ground rules:

  • We’ll have cones set up 10′ apart and we ask that you stay at your cone throughout the workout (except when you’re running).
  • Before and after the WOD, please maintain safe (6′) distances as you chat with your friends.
  • In accordance with Pennsylvania DOH guidelines, face masks are recommended but not required.
  • BYO kettlebell/dumbbell. We also recommend a towel or yoga mat.
  • Classes are capped at 15 people. Please reserve your spot in Wellness Living. The late/no-show cancel fee will apply.
  • On bad-weather days, we’ll make the call at least 2 hours before class if we need to ditch the parking lot plan, in which case the WOD will be held via Zoom.
If you can’t make the 6pm Outdoor WOD or you prefer to stay virtual for the time being, we’ll continue to offer Virtual WODs on Zoom each week day at 6am, 12pm, and 4pm. If folks are enjoying the Outdoor WODs we will add more the schedule. We have no idea when we’ll be allowed back inside, but getting to meet as a group outside is an exciting step!

Daily WOD – May 10, 2020

[FYI – the server that hosts our website is being upgraded which has created some intermittent connectivity. We’ll email the WOD to all members tonight in case you can’t access the site when you’re getting ready to WOD tomorrow. The site should be back to normal by Monday!]

If you have a pull up bar, you can do pull ups in place of the rows (30 kipping / 15-20 strict), or throw a sheet over your pull up bar and do rows that way. If you aren’t comfortable with the sheet-over-door method, sub 60 two-arm KB/DB rows in place of the 30 ring rows. Post to comments: Time, weight used, any modifications. 

30K in May: We forgot to post this on May 1, but it’s better late than never! We are excited to kick off our “30k in May” challenge. The goal is to run 30,000 meters (18.6 miles) between now and May 31. Because we’re starting late, distances accomplished as part of a Daily WOD will count this year. (If you do today’s warm up and workout, you can log your first 1.25 miles.) If you choose to participate, add you name to this spreadsheet and log your miles each day. Let’s go ICA!

Daily WOD – May 8, 2020

At-Home Workout #56

Warm Up

3 rounds of 30 seconds at each station:

WOD Notes: Click here for a video explanation of today’s workout. Have fun and use your imagination when picking your odd object! Something in the 30-80# range would be ideal. If you think it’s on the lighter side for you, increase reps to 15 or even 20 per round. If all you have access to is your regular DB/KB, perform 10R/10L each round. Lastly, if you have a barbell and are itching to use it, you can sub 10 power clean & jerks at 115/75#. For the knee jump cash out, start from a two-knee kneeling position and jump into a deep squat. See the video for a demo. If that’s not available to you, start in a plank position and jump into a deep squat. You’re going for speed and explosiveness! Post to comments: Odd object used and total rounds + reps completed.

Community Notes: Join us for a happy hour on Zoom starting around 8:00pm! Bring your favorite food and beverages!

WOD Notes: Click here for a video explanation of today’s workout. Kelly is a CrossFit benchmark WOD that usually takes in the 25-35 minute range.

(An old CrossFit.com sub for wall balls was thrusters with an empty 45# barbell.) As noted above, if you have a medicine ball, do wall balls in place of the thrusters. Compare to 190713.

The deadlifts should be touch-and-go at the floor. For the DU, give it up to 3 attempts to go unbroken, then switch to cumulative. For the push ups, you can rest in a plank or downward dog position… but fight like mad to not drop to your knees! Post to comments: time, weight used, and whether you went unbroken!

Barbell Notes: Now that many of you have barbells at home, we wanted to make a heartfelt request that everyone to continue to do our at-home WODs as much as possible. It’s been so great for our community to have the camaraderie of the shared workouts. (Please keep posting results and photos too!) Feel free to substitute barbell movements for KB/DB ones wherever it makes sense, and you can do as much before/after accessory work as you desire. Thank you for your continued support, ICA! We really appreciate it. Here’s hoping May brings good news about our re-opening!

The KBS can be Russian or American… athlete’s choice. Russian twists can be done with a weighted object in the 10-25# range. Post to comments: Total reps of each movement, modifications. (It’s also okay if you don’t keep track today… just go hard!)

Afterward, order takeout from your favorite local restaurant as a recovery meal.  The idea was started by a Maryland CrossFit affiliate – read more about it here.  Please sign up in Wellness Living so we know who to expect, and sign into Zoom a few minutes early so you’re ready to start at 12:30.
