January 03, 2017

This time of year is when you look back at all you've done the previous year, and what you want to accomplish in the new year.

The strong folks at CrossFit Central out in Austin, TX have come up with one of the best New Year's resolution lists for Crossfitters. Check them all out and see which ones you'll be doing in 2017.

  1. Drop it like it’s hot under a new 1-rep-max backsquat (and stand it back up).
