The first week is over. The wall balls have gone back on the shelves and the rowers have logged all the calories. Now it’s time to announce the scores going into 19.2 tomorrow.

How many of you can relate to one of these 19.1 themed memes?

Team Carson 94

MVP from 19.1 for Team Carson and across all three teams of members was Sana who racked up a huge 14 points. He smashed some bonus points for diving straight in for his first Open workout ever and then sticking around to judge people in his inevitably super positive way! 
Other top performers Rhod 7 points, Joe Rooney, Lisa Ward and Louise all on 6 points. Special mentions need to go to Lisa and Louise who each called out members of staff to help benefit their team!

Rhod collected the most points for judging out of the whole team.

Team Aromas 75

Ed led from the front with 7 points on 19.1 and was ably assisted at the top of the leaderboard by one of his golden oldies, Lianne, with 6 points and fellow captain, Chloe, with 5 points. 

Ed collected the most points from judging this week. 

Team Madison 91

It’s a tie for the most points on Team Madison this week as Ash Sutherland and Ben Parsons both put 6 points on the board. 

Ash collected the most points from judging. 

Extra points

19.1 extra points for coming in the top 3 according to SugarWOD go to Lianne, Charlee, Molly on the girls side and Gaz W, Matt Taylor and Mike Holmes for the boys. 

Team Staff 37

Gaz Wayt scored a huge 15 points while Mike contributed 7. Gaz ran away with 8 judging points this week and showed that it’s not just about doing well on the workout, but being around the gym to help others have a great Open experience.

And now it’s time to get the crystal ball out and guess what’s in store for 19.2 later on today….

If you need some help with guessing then this is a good place to start your working out

SCCF Intramural Open 2019

What is all this fuss about?

The CrossFit Games Open has returned and with it the Second City CrossFit Intramural Open.  The Intramural Open is designed to get everybody involved and keep the spirit high over the course of the 5 week Open.

For full details and dates, please head over to where you can sign up to the worldwide leaderboard and join the Second City CrossFit affiliate team #SCCFstrong

Just like in previous years, for five weeks there will be two versions of the same workout released for anyone to complete and see how they stack up not only within their gym, but worldwide against all other competing CrossFitters.

The first Friday Night Lights event will be February 22nd.

How will it work?

Three teams have been formed within the walls of SCCF.  Each is captained by two members.  These members have been on a recruiting drive since Friday. If you’re looking for a team to join then grab one of the people shown below and see if they have space in their cap!

Each and every team member is valuable as they can all earn points towards the team total regardless of their score on the actual Open workout.

For 2019, your SCCF teams are:

Team Aromas - captained by Chloe and Ed


Team Madison - captained by Lauren and Paul


Team Carson - captained by Louise and Rhod


How do you earn points?

Team members will then participate in the CrossFit Open workouts each week and have an opportunity to earn points for their Intramural Open team in a number of ways.  They are as follows:

    1    (+1) Each team member that completes an Open WOD with a judge from a different team will earn a point for their team’s total.  RX workouts and scaled workouts score the same.

    2    (+1) The top three male and female RX scores for each week will earn 3/2/1 point(s) for their team total.

    3    (+5)  The team that is deemed to have shown the most spirit during each Friday Night Lights will earn 5 bonus points.

    4    (+1) Any team member completing an Open WOD during Friday Night Lights will earn an extra point for their team.

    5    (+2/+1) Athletes who challenge an athlete from another team to compete in a head-to-head throw down during Friday Night Lights will earn their team an extra 2 points for a win, whilst 1 extra point will be earned for a loss.  All head-to-head match ups must be submitted to Mike via the team captains by Friday 1530.

    6    (+1) Hitting a PB during any of the Open workouts will earn an extra point for their team.

7 (+?) Discretionary bonus points can be awarded at any time for anything that is super special.

   8     (+1) Judging a member of a different team during an Open workout. 

SC60 and SC Compete February Update


Each month we know that our SC60 programming will have a slight bias toward one of the 10 General Physical Skills. This bias might not be immediately noticeable to athletes; however, each month we will have delineated tests, workouts, skills, or drills that will lend themselves to that month’s particular focus. We will also be angling our SC60 programming to slightly bias or adjust to the 2019 Open structure later this month.

February’s specific focus for SC60 classes will revolve around the General Physical Skill of...ACCURACY! Accuracy is often’s not just hitting wall ball targets (although we will do that a lot!) also means the accuracy in hitting positions, cycling movements, not missing your singles or doubles, and where you jump / land while weightlifting. This focus on accuracy will show up in strength, skill, and workout elements. It also offers tremendous carry over into the 2019 Open Season as we can see high levels of frustration when accuracy is tested:

  • Whipping yourself on those double unders?

  • Not being able to efficiently cycle a light bar?

  • Not hitting the target during a wall ball?

If that sounds familiar to you, then fear not - we will cover it all, ladies and gents. We will also introduce a few new benchmarks and olympic lifting complexes that play into our monthly focus. Work hard and stay true!

SC Compete

Since the introduction of SC Compete it has been great to see a whole range of people using both the Development and RX threads to help move them towards their competitive goals. One of the major plus points of bringing this form of programming in house is that if you need to discuss it with a coach then we know where you are and can help advise you on how to best use or modify it to suit your goals.

To recap, each training day has three parts.

Part B is our SC60 workout, and we recommend you perform this in one of the classes, although it can be done during Open Gym hours if you are pushed for time (or even adapted for completion at home or in a globo gym!).

If you are adding pieces to your training then you should start with Part A. Whether this is before or after Part B doesn’t matter too much, but this is the first supporting piece of the puzzle. At this time of the year Part A is invariably conditioning biased as we know that competitive CrossFit is fundamentally an endurance sport and there is no shortcut to a bigger gas tank.

Each Monday we will publish on SugarWOD what the bias work will be each day of the week. These are programmed as Part C. The idea behind these is to bring up weaker areas of your overall capacity (conditioning, strength or gymnastics) and we suggest picking one bias, following it for 3-6 weeks and then re-evaluating where you are. Part C does not replace Part B, and should only really be completed after Parts A and B (unless you are desperately short on time and then if it’s your bias day then it could replace Part A but not Part B).

With all these new things, watch this space for the introduction of the next supplementary programme in the next few weeks….
