What is LUMBERJACK CrossFit?

LUMBERJACK CrossFit started with LTC Pete Andrysiak and a select few Soldiers in the 20th Engineer Battalion. Under the leadership of LTC Jason Kelly, the program grew exponentially. It soon became way of life for over 750 Soldiers preparing for combat.

Today the Fort Hood based Soldiers are back in Texas after a nine month deployment to Kandahar, Afghanistan where they conducted route clearance operations to neutralize explosive hazards, construction projects with local contracters, ANA training and military development, and ensure freedom of movement for the Afghan people and coalition forces.

These brave Soldiers didn't avoid IEDs, they went to find them. They spent long days and nights continuing the reconstruction of Afghan local areas and FOBs. They even trained and developed Afghan military leaders and Soldiers to one day maintain stability in their own nation.

As you read this post, they are preparing to stand in the gap between chaos and peace once again. Some of the bravest Soldiers on the battlefield today, LUMBERJACKS see the dark cloud on the horizon and go to meet it for they know that sacrifice is the cost of liberty.

Our Level I certified trainers are capable of training other units in and around Fort Hood. Feel free to join us for PT any day of the week or stop by for assistance in getting your unit program started.

The CrossFit HQ workout of the day was originally a five-on/two-off pattern, and it worked perfectly. Studies have shown, however, that a three-day-on/one-day-off pattern, as per the CrossFit main site, is best for high volume, high-intensity work. The problem with this pattern is that it does not sync with the five-day-on/two-day-off pattern that governs the U.S. Army. For this reason, we have adopted a five-day-on/two-day-off regimen that nests nicely with the standard U.S. Army five-day workweek. LUMBERJACK CrossFit programming will be taking on a new focus meant to improve core strength and overall technique. To promote these goals, the old programming schedule has been modified to one that focuses on heavy weight lifting at the start of the week, when participants are the best rested. Since these heavy workouts do not take much time by themselves, this ensures more time is available to improve technique for the day’s intended lift. Ensuing WODs follow the standard couplet/triplet schedule, with occasional sprint and endurance drills to keep things interesting.
