We are on our 2nd week of testing. New cycle starts on Monday the 26th. 

The Whitten WOD is a long and challenging CrossFit Hero WOD that will test your endurance and efficiency with mostly lightweight movements. Unlike many heroworkouts, Whitten involves no heavy barbells. … Your best bet is to stay efficient, have a strategy, and grind through.

Week’s Preview: 2/2
Friday: Front Squat or Overhead Squat + “Grace”

A note about our testing weeks: 
Every 4 months we have a 2 week window at Defined where we test many of your core barbell lifts, Girl/Hero WODS, and baseline CFD workouts.

If you are a new athlete at Defined use these next 2 weeks to establish and record your baseline numbers or if you have been with us for a while this is a great time to check in with your last testing results to gauge your progress.  

Recording your numbers for these next 2 weeks is extremely valuable to being accountable to your training and making sure you are growing and progressing in our program.
