Get ready! The Cool Cruel Summer Series makes its return on Thursday, June 16th and continues for four months on the 3rd Thursday of each month.
What is the Cool Cruel Summer Series?
It’s a series of four CrossFit benchmark workouts voted on by Roots members.
Why would I want to do this?
Because it’s fun…and, it’s fun. Do the series for fun, to set new PRs, meet people who come to the shop at different hours of the day, and have fun. Did we mention to do it for fun?
And what summer series would be complete without wings, wine, and maybe some PaleoPong? We’ll have the option to order food and each event will be BYOB. Mark your calendars for the summer workout and party series now!
MOST IMPORTANTLY – we want to hear from you! Scroll through the CrossFit Benchmark workouts (Girls, Heroes, and Named workouts) and POST TO COMMENTS with your top 3-4 choices.
Since we fairly recently did DT and Linda The Bear is next on my list. Of the heroes I ended up with quite a list scanning through, none of which I’ve tried.
COE, JBO, Weston, Thompson, Ned, Ricky, Tumilson, Kutschbach
Barbara; Helen; Hamburguesa (with a nod to Zac Pine); Grace; Murph is always epic; Filthy Fifty is always devastating. Bring it! Can’t wait
Hotshots 19, PK, Air Force, Cindy XXX
Cindy, Karen and Jerry 🙂
Nick & Wittman, Hotshots and Air Force sound good
NUKES – Long and has lots of running, but it’s fucking awesome!
The Ghost – This one is horrible, and by that I mean, friggin’ awesome!
Hamburguesa – A classic! I just missed the Zac Pine era (started at Roots in July of 2013), and so it was great to be able to do this one last year for the CCWS. We should do it again! Or, Hotshots 19!
Why am I yelling?!
Edit: just realized these are supposed to be *benchmark* wods. Duh. In that case I’ll add a vote for Air Force as well.
