Started Crossfit in 2007 at a home gym with my room mates. Had my ACL replaced (due to Basketball) and then started Crossfit again 2009 and again took time off to recovery from ankle surgery (due to Basketball). Now, back on the grind and never going to play basketball again... Currently getting it back together at Crossfit Mukilteo, which is outside of Seattle.
I'll post my results here and other things that motivate me. Come! join me on this journey which I will often sabotage with fried carbs and beer. :D
My gym held a B4B event today, had about 12 teams participate. Got about 3.5 hours of sleep beforehand, and then napped for 2 hours after. Now 12 hours at work :-/
Anyways, smoked the WOD. Beat my trainer and his partner by 12 seconds, and took the best time of the day! props to me! haha
Reps can be split up any way you like, but run must be done together, and only one partner can work at a time.
Helen: 3 rounds
21 KB swings (53#)
12 pull ups
Grace: 30 clean and jerks (135#)
We ran in the same heat as my trainer, and knew that we had to make A LOT of ground on the runs. Pull ups and KB swings were a wash since they were gonna get done at 100% speed by both of us. But my trainer and his partner had about 150 extra pounds of muscle on us to blast through Grace.
Made me a very happy man today! :)
ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO WATCH THE COVERAGE OF THE US vs EUROPE INVITATIONAL ONLINE?
NPR takes a look at Crossfit kids. As with Crossfit and any training in general, if you have good trainers and good programming, its amazing for you. AND if you have shitty trainers, someone could get hurt. I imagine its better for you and safer than Pop Warner football. just sayin.
Followed by a nice comments section with a ton of people who haven’t tried crossfit weighing in. Also, some really good “put-this-in-your-pipe-and-smoke-it” comments.
WOD 9/17/12- Mr. Joshua (hero WOD and trainer’s (Josh’s) b-day WOD.
30 GHD sit ups
15 deadlifts @ 250#
time: 28:10 RX. I ACTUALLY BEAT MY TRAINER! Haha, that pussy (jp, he’s a beast) but it was his bday yesterday, I suspect he was hung over (he said he hit his foot chasing a giant cat in an alley). He puked twice. I almost puked several times.
Today wasn’t a good day to start Advocare’s 24 day challenge… You’re not supposed to workout on day 1, especially run your body into the ground. oh well, happy I did. Oh yeah, I did Death by air squats and GHD situps on THURSDAY… my abs were still sore from that. (got thru rnd 14 I think).
Why do this 24 day challenge? i dunno, why not. cleanse my beer torn body, plus I work the fuck out of the next 2 weeks. so, if I’m not gonna be out having fun, I might as well be hungry and miserable too… wtf?
