Hello and welcome to the daily workout post. You frequent this page often I gather, usually in the beginning of your day or before you hit the gym —  just to find out what is in store for you upon your arrival. Occasionally you may encounter programming that elicits an involuntary facial cringe, and perhaps some nausea. Should this occur for you on this occasion, please note that “cherry picking” your workouts is frowned upon and will not be tolerated. If you planned to be at the gym today, your smiling face best be in attendance. That is all.

Adapt or Die at SICFIT Scottsdale


Programming for Thursday, September 19, 2013

For most of us, when we conjure up the image of an athlete in our mind’s eye we see someone who is physically fit, with two working arms, legs, eyes, and ears. But these qualities of the human body are not necessary requirements for one to wear the title athlete. Athlete’s come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and levels of ability. To show us just how true this is, adaptive athlete Steph Hammerman will join the SICFIT Scottsdale community as an be honorary guest coach, and show us all what it means to “adapt or die”! Keep your calendars open for the 9:30am class on Thursday, October 17th and please RSVP at  Check out the clip below to get a taste fro Steph’s indomitable spirit.

Back Squats for Brute Strength


Programming for Tuesday, September 17, 2013

The back squat is a lift of brute strength. While proper form is alway crucial, there is nothing overly technical about it and the skill transfer demands are minimal. With all this being said, the strength we cultivate through back squat will support and make stronger our other more complex lifts and movements. Strengthen your back squat, and your other lifts will follow.

Raise Your Hand if You Love Wall Balls?! And By Love We Actually Mean Hate.


Programming for Saturday, September 14, 2013

Wall balls. We love to hate them and we hate to love them. With their heart-pumping, shoulder recking, and glute fatiguing power, they can truly make or break a workout. Today when you and your partner share in completing 150 of these menacing repetitions, try and breath through them and recover as much as possible as you wait for the ball to travel from the target back to your palms. With wall balls, the name of the game is smooth consistency. Stay positive and remember, all it takes is one wall ball at a time to get to 150!

Scottsdale CrossFit goes Balls-to-Wall

150 reps of each:
Wall balls #20/14, 10′/9
