… all updated in Zen

We are going to push the 1RM re-test week back one week (will be the week of December 2) to give everyone plenty of class opportunities on those days to come in and re-test their 1RM back squat, front squat, and deadlift. So, next week with be an intermittent deload week. ?


Each year we run one special, our Black Friday deal. It is a 13% discount on any multi-month membership (3 months, 6 months, or 12 months) that you are interested in.

If you are interested, please shoot me an email at brian@crossfit13stars.com, and I will take care of the membership adjustment for you.

Below is some info related to questions we normally receive…

  • the deal is not valid for 10 pack memberships or month-to-month memberships
  • the lump sum is charged immediately; there is no option to pay this monthly
  • the membership begins after your current membership expires (so no time or classes is lost)
  • the offer is good for the first 13 members of our community who take advantage
  • in addition to the 13 current members, we also offer the special to 13 new faces, if anyone has a friend or family member who has been looking to join our community
  • no other discounts may be applied to this deal
  • the deal is valid when we hit 13 members, or until 12/01 … whichever comes first
  • and yes, as of this email you are welcome to take advantage of this deal, no need to wait until 11/29

10-9-8-7-6 unbroken strict pull-ups (1 of 6)

Each week for six weeks, we are going to mix in some pull-up work, like we did in the past with the goal to go unbroken. Aim to use the same modification (ie. same colored band, same combination of bands, etc) for the whole series, because the best way to see if we’re progressing is to limit the factors that are changing each week.
