National WOD to support to the American Red Cross

This Saturday, July 13th, CrossFit Southie will unite with CrossFit gyms all across the US and participate in “Lift Up Moore,” a fund-raiser for the American Red Cross’ relief efforts in Moore, OK.

Although the tornado struck on May 20th, we might remember that 24 souls perished, hundreds were injured, and the town of Moore was effectively leveled. As such, much work remains and the needs in the community are great. Visit

The CrossFit community has distinguished itself by its past support and participation in such events for the greater good. This event will build upon that tradition.

As an athlete, you will undertake a grueling WOD that memorializes the 5/20/13 date of the tornado, and you can compete on a national leader board and vie for prizes from our sponsors.

1. Take 15 minutes to build up to:

-1 RM Clean (Squat Clean or Power Clean are acceptable)

2. 5 Rounds for Time:

-20 Burpee Lateral Bar Hops
– 13 Squat Cleans (135/95)
By securing the participation of at least 100 gyms and 5,000 athletes, we hope to raise $50,000 for the American Red Cross.

In the time it takes to do 30 air squats, you can sign-up!

Just visit and type “Lift Up Moore” in the search box to find our gym.
Select one of three participation levels:

1. Participate in the WOD only. No donation.

2. Participate in the WOD and make a $10 donation to the Red Cross.

3. . Make a larger donation.

    36 Rx. Pacing myself on the difficult sets (push-ups, pull-ups) helped a lot.

    WOD: 39 Rx

    Have done various tabata mash-ups here but tonight was my first time doing a proper ‘Tabata This’. I have a baseline now to measure up against going forward.

    WOD: 36 Rx
    Sit-ups: 10
    Row: 5
    Squat: 13
    Pull-ups: 2
    Push-ups: 6
    REALLY liked doing this WOD. Definitely one that I would enjoy revisiting every couple of months.
    Here’s my plan to attain a score of 40 next time.
    I comfortably got through 13 squats each time, so definitely can get 14 there. Still working on pull-ups. Instead of starting out with 5 each round and burning out halfway through, just shoot for 3 each round. Push-ups I was able to get 9 per round for the first 6 rounds, then 7 on the 7th round and 6 on the 8th round. I can probably maintain 8 per round. And that will get me to 40.

    Consistent. Row (5), Squat (11), Pullups (6), Pushups (8 w 3 sets of 10 before I realized it was going to be diffult to maintain), Situps (8)= 38 Rx

    Chuck has crushing video demos lately. Such a talent that is finally get the exposure he deserves. He has a ton of knowledge, he’s a sprint suicide machine, handles the sledge hammer like a boss and the camera LOVES him.

    In the video Goose mis-spoke the back lever was first and the front lever was second. Sorry for the confusion!
