Time to have a bit of fun this Wednesday!

If you are competing on Saturday come on in to comp class and get after it. Even if you aren’t competing, come on in and throw around your body and some weight and have some fun.

Remember to sign up for classes at

And see you all in the gym very soon.


We continue our work on your Olympic lifts with a bit of Snatch Work

10min EMOM

  • 3 Power Snatches

Grab a barbell and get ready to get to work. Add some weight that will be challenging for you, but something doable each round. You should do these reps as singles even if you are able to them touch and go so you can work on form.

We'll give you 5 minutes to add a bit of weight before hitting your reps. Make them pop!


7min AMRAP

  • 2 Power Snatches (similar weight to what you finished with on the EMOM)

  • 3 Strict Pullups/6 Deep Ring Rows

  • 4 Burpee Box Jump Overs

We can hit this in two heats so you can spot your partner on the strict pullups. Same as today the goal of the workout is to hit your Olympic Lifts well first and foremost.

Nov 14 - Comp Class

Please note that the workouts for this comp class will have alternative movements for anyone in the Island Throwdown.  You can choose whichever option you’d like, but if you are competing, consider what will put you in the best position to succeed on Saturday.

WOD 1:  5 Rounds With a Partner – Alt Movements

·         15/12 Cal Row

·         15 WBs (Air Squats*)

·         10 C2B/Pullups/Ring Rows (3-5 Strict*)

·         5 Burpees

·         5 Strict HSPU/Pushups

*If you are competing, do strict movements on the bar to prevent rips.  Also, choose a rep number that will give you a bit of a workout but don’t push your limits as you may not recover by Saturday if you do.

Strength:  Snatch


·         High Hang Snatch x3

Every 90 secs x5 Rounds

·         Hang Snatch x3

Awesome turnout today. Even better effort today.

Thank you for all those who made it out and for those who couldn’t, we’ll see you sometime this week.

Stay warm in your warm ups by dressing in sweats and a sweater and then taking the layers off as you need them. Still need to be really warmed up before any workout and wearing extra clothes as you start moving will help with this.

We are continuing with our Olympic Lifting cycle and you are all moving a barbell super well. Keep that up. We’ll always throw lots of reminders and cues at you, but stay patient and focus on virtuosity in your move always.

Remember to book in on


15 minutes to work on a clean complex.

Here are your choices depending on where you are with your fitness and experience.

  • 3 Hang Power Cleans

  • 3 Hang Cleans

  • High Hang Clean + Hang Clean + Clean

If you are new to this movement we'd recommend hitting the first option. If you are getting more comfortable we want to see you squatting so take a crack at the second option. If you have been doing CrossFit for a while now and want a crack at the third option, get to it. When the weight is light you should do the complex unbroken and as it gets heavy you can drop the weight between each rep.


7min Ascending Ladder


  • Hang Cleans (225/155lbs) (185/125lbs) (135/95lbs) (95/65lbs)

25 UB DU’s/60 SU’s/30secs DU practice b/w each set.

For this weight you should be able to hit a couple of doubles or triples off the get go, but as the workout moves along you may be doing singles. This is to work on that speed through the middle that everyone needs.

We also have Olympic Lifting Class tonight at 630 if you want to come get after it!

- Team 782

Monday, November 12, 2018

Reminder that we have class at 10am and 1130am tomorrow morning.

We will be closed for the rest of the day after that! Enjoy your day off!

And next Saturday, the 17th, come on out to CrossFit Summerside to watch the Island Throwdown and your athletes from 782 compete!

Tomorrow we will be doing a hero workout!

This is to honour those who have fought for our freedom.

Hero Workout


40min AMRAP with a partner

  • 50 Burpees

  • 400m Run Together or 40 Synchro Air Squats

  • 50 American KBS (24/16kg) (20/12kg) (16/8kg)

  • 400m Run Together or 40 Synchro Air Squats

  • 50 Pullups or Ring Rows

  • 400m Run Together or 40 Synchro Air Squats

  • 50 Pushups

  • 400m Run Together or 40 Synchro Air Squats

Split work between partners as needed. Do the run together. This British Hero WOD was designed by CrossFit NW1 (Conwy, Wales) in memory of member athlete Lt. Garreth Jenkins of Colwyn Bay, Conwy, who collapsed at the Commando Training Centre, Lympstone, Devon, while on a 30-mile (48km) march on Thursday, May 28, 2015. Boxes in the UK and around the world have since memorialized the soldier CrossFitter with this workout.

*Made a quick change/substitute for this if you do not want to run outside or you only want to run outside every second round. Scale the number of pull ups or pushups as need be to continue moving at a steady pace.

Won’t need a crazy long warm up for this one. We’ll get in and get you set up with a partner and get after it.

- Team 782

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Just a reminder that we have class at 9am on Sunday and then Monday we have two classes, one at 10 and then the other at 1130.

On Monday we’ll be doing one of the hero workouts.


Front Squats

We will work on a few front squats from the floor this morning. This means you can either power clean the bar and then start squatting it or you can work on your squat clean. If you really struggle with the clean you can go from the rack.

6min EMOM

  • 3 Front Squats

If you are squat cleaning that can count as your first rep. Start light and build in weight as the EMOM moves along.


3min AMRAP x 4 - Rest 3 min b/w AMRAPs

  • 3 Power Cleans (135/95lbs) (95/65lbs) (75/55lbs)

Friday is here and it is time for some fun!

This Sunday we’ll be doing one class at 9amm on Remembrance Day. We will be attending the ceremony in the morning at 11 and then enjoying the day with family and friends so come on in for the morning class and then enjoy your day. On Monday we’ll be doing two classes, one at 10am and the next at 1130am.

Tonight I am off to see the Wildcats play the Islanders. Hope to see a few of you out!


Jumping Drills

  • Knee to Tuck Jump - Starting on your knees you will pop and jump over a PVC pipe

  • Broad Jump - Starting from a stationary position you will try to jump for distance

We will spend 4-5 minutes at each drill. This drill will help you learn to use your hips when moving your body and moving the bar. And they are just plain fun!

Clean - Clean, clean, clean… In a squat of course!

Get that barbell moving fast after all those jumping drills!


4 Rounds with a Partner

  • 8 Cleans (275/185lbs) (205/135lbs) (135/95lbs) (75/55lbs)

  • 400m Run Together

20min Time Cap

This should be a weight whereas if you have a bad lift you will probably miss the lift. Stay focused. Stay hungry. Stay humble. Choose an appropriate weight for you and hit your lifts.

Thursday, November 8, 2018

Thursday is here and it is time to get in to the gym and have some fun.

Take one step at a time during those difficult days and that will lead to leaps and bounds on those days you feel good.

If you haven’t yet get your tickets for the Wildcats game against the Islanders. 7pm start time at the Eastlink Centre. Come support one of your own from 782.


16min EMOM

  • 1-6: 2 Push Press

  • 7-12: 2 Push Jerks

Start light and build up in weight as you move. This is a great chance to take that strength you earned during the strength cycle and put it to good use. For the first 12 reps (6mins) make sure you move the bar with those hips to get it up off your shoulders. For the next 6 minutes move it fast and then get under that barbell. As you build your technique you should be able to move a bunch more weight with the push jerk when compared with the push press. That will also take time to learn.


8min AMRAP

  • 6 DB S2OH (right arm)

  • 6 Burpees over the DB

  • 6 DB S2OH (left arm)

  • 6 Burpees over the DB

Some beautiful work here on your stability and engine.

Hello. Hello!

Tuesday is upon us and we have lots more fun on the go.

Thank you to all those you signed up on the planner. if you haven’t yet get yourself signed up here.

And get yourself on and get signed up for the Island Throwdown on November 17th.

And that leads us into our workout for tomorrow.


Power Snatch

We will work on building up to a moderate 2 rep power snatch. Not touch and go, but 2 singles with a quick break in between each rep. From there we’ll work on barbell cycling for the workout.

T2B Progressions

We will get your on a bar and work your through some progressions to get that kip right and your core stronger.


9min Ascending Ladder


  • Snatch (any style) (135/95lbs) (95/65lbs) (75/55lbs)

  • Bar Facing Burpee

  • T2B/Leg Raise/Knee Tuck/MB Situp

We’ll most likely run this in two heats to give you that competition format style. Make sure your reps are smooth and clean. Slow is steady and steady is fast.
