Important VERSUS Info

Here are some details you should know about VERSUS III (our intergym throw down) this coming Sunday at CrossFit SLU:
  • Doors open at 9am. A warmup will be posted on the whiteboard for you to hit on your own.
  • Athlete Check-in is from 9:15 to 9:45. If you are not checked in at this time you will not compete in the days events.
  • During the check-in time you may purchase your awesome VERSUS t-shirts. Limit quantities so get there early.
  • The event begins promptly at 10am. Heats will be posted.
  • We have THREE EVENTS lined up: The Total, CGO 14.2, and The Course. We understand your concern for "being too tired from the Total" for your CGO performance, but rest assured you'll be okay to do both in that order.
  • After the final event the scores will be tallied during our group COOLDOWN led by our own Jessie P and afterward we will have the Golden Hammer Trophy Ceremony.
  • Then SOCIAL HOUR: all 21+ athletes will head over to Brave Horse Tavern for some tasty treats.

Thursdays are notoriously slow days at the gym. Here are some very informative articles to expand you knowledge!


First off have you seen our YouTube channel?
Westside Barbell and Louis Simmons created the Reverse Hyper way back when and have been pushing it's benefits for a long time. The science behind it is coming out and it's looking like all that anecdotal information that Louis is so good at is true!


Then Sarah sent me some interesting thing on OIL PULLING!


Saw this on social media. Pretty cool... could be corny, but it's cool.


Upcoming Events:

WOD for Thursday 3/6

for time:
50 pistols
40 deadlifts, 61/45kg
30 c2b pullups
20 burpees
10 clusters (full clean + thruster)

Post time to whiteboard/the Cody app.



Individuals who are not competing in the intergym throwdown this Sunday should sign up to be volunteers!

We are in need of some helpful hands for the day of the event with duties that may include equipment set-up/breakdown as well as judging for events.

There are three shifts to choose from! Volunteers are welcome to sign up for one or more shifts and we want to reward you with appreciation and gratitude and beer! You can register using the form below or using the sign-up sheet at the gym.
