We have Memorial Day Murph coming up this Monday at 9:00am. All other classes are canceled. If you have never expeirenced Murph, now is the time to join us!!! Remember why we do this WOD once a year? So we can suffer through the pain together knowing what kind of suffering and pain Murph did for our Country.

Summer has finally arrived and the good thing about Crossfit is we get to take out fitness anywhere that we would like. Constantly varied at its best! This Saturday, May 18, we will be heading away from TNT to Fox Hill Park which is located about a mile from TNT's front door. We will bring all the equipment that will be needed. All times will be the same and we will still be working just as hard. Lets show the world how TNT does work!!! Hope to see you all there. Follow the link for detailed directions from TNT to Fox Hill park.
It is exciting to start seeing results when doing CrossFit. It is even more exciting when we start adding weight to the barbell when doing WODS.
Coming into class we all see what the RX, INT. and SCL weights are and on paper they look doable. Now we have all been in the situation where we throw the weight on the barbell, 3-2-1 is shouted and we get that first round in and think to ourselves, "WTF was I thinking putting all this weight on the bar?"
So as any human would do, we take weight off the bar and continue on with our WOD. Many reasons this could happen: Maybe you are tired and realize that today is just not the day that you have no energy and strength, while maybe your head is bigger then your strength and you get the barbell up and your form looks really bad. Many reasons can be why you would want to strip weight off the barbell in the middle of a WOD.
Here at TNT, we take another appraoch to your sucess for getting to the desired weight you want to put on during a WOD.
You might be new to CF and or TNT and you are not sure what kind of weight you should be putting on and your coach doesn't know because this is your first time doing this movement since getting out of foundations. Maybe you haven't PR'd in this movement in a long time and can surely do more weight then the last time you did it.
Start at a weight that you know you can do. After the first round or few minutes depending on the programming, start to add a little weight and see how that feels and get the coaches OK to make sure your form looks spot on? We have no problem having you add weight if you look good doing the movement.
We do have a problem if you put TOO MUCH WEIGHT ON and you shouldn't have it on. The last thing that TNT would want is for any athlete to get injured for doing so.
If you put on the weight and tell the coach that you can do it, and you know you can do it then we expect you to do it for the whole WOD. NO turning back and taking weight off the bar in the middle of a WOD.
