The Deadlift

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

Rarely has one lift been so maligned, except for perhaps the squat, even though it’s so good.  Heck, it’s even useful!  Sheesh, it’s even MANDATORY TO REGULAR LIFE when you get right down to it!  How often do we pick things up off the floor of from anywhere below our waist?  I’d wager more than […]

CrossFit. It’s jus’ old fashioned hard work!

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

 It’s no surprise then that it works!! Picking up heavy stuff, pushing heavy stuff around, or just trying to stand up with heavy stuff on your back.   Any way you cut it up, training to make yourself stronger, leaner, faster, and just plain better, is tough work!  That’s why I’m glad to call this gym my gym.  We […]

May I introduce Lee Myers.   He’s on vacation to Mexico – good for him.  What does he do the day he leaves?  Comes in early to make sure he doesn’t miss the WOD!!!   What does Lee do before he sleeps?  "I stretch my chest and hamstrings and work on my L-Sit’s with the […]

Friday, June 13th, 2008

So this was good.  Norman came in Saturday last week for the "Hard Routine" seminar.  He signed up that day, after the prompting of his close friend, dear Charles. After 4 workouts this week (he he he) this is where he was after mostly completing Jason, here’s our boy Norman.  He learned what a "PR" […]

Rant

I’m gonna put out a couple of scenarios. 1) What if the coaches were the fittest people in the gym.  What if we could do 50 muscle-ups in a row, 1000 air squats and overhead squat our bodyweights for 25 reps.  And 2) What if we put a workout on the board calling for exercises […]

What do you want to do?

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008

Seriously.  What do you want to do?  Bench Press 315?  Do 20 Pull-ups in a row?  Run, really run and have it not feel terrible?  One-handed handstands?  Compete again?  Meet some new friends?  Listen to hard rock and sweat?  Lose 20 pounds?  Lose 120 pounds?  Gain 20 pounds?  Learn the Olympic Lifts, after all we […]

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

We’re tinkering of putting together a special Elite Class for our CrossFitters who are on their way to Level 2 and Level 3 fitness. This will be an invite only kind of thing.   Doesn’t look bad until you get to the bottom where your pull-up is so awesome that you can fly high enough […]
