What kind of weapons are those?

From my extensive Counterstrike playing, I'd say those are P-90 sub-machine guns.

Awesome picture. These guys rolling up on ya must be a scary sight for the bad guys.

...and yeah, those are FN P90s.

I'm no gun fanatic but check this out. I want one.

Awesome promotional video, CF Vancouver guys!

One quick note from a CrossFitter who's prone to turning into an overly-technical coach (sorry, can't help myself). The lady doing the thrusters is really letting the elbows fall forward, which, at higher loads, will result in either dumping the load altogether or really robbing her of power because of the "saving" she'll have to do with her arms (she'll have to reverse curl the bar just to keep it from dumping).

I speak from experience, after recently analyzing the FGB videotape of me while performing push presses. Keep those elbows up and upper arms parallel to the ground.

Help her fix that, CF Vancouver guys!

Now, back to the regularly scheduled WOD...

the only fragile thing about these guys are their emotions towards those who are victims

Note to self: Stay out of trouble when visiting J-ville!!!
Day 3 of self-imposed exile. Finding it hard to stay away from gym and not feel guilty. Body will thank me later.
Day 2 spent supervising volleyball, football, and tennis matches. More exhausted after that than after last week's Chelsea.

I can't get the video to open. I just get some little broken box. Any help???

Hey crossfitters got a question for you.I was searching the site for a goo daily warm-up. Can anyone tell me if there is one availible, or if someone has one they use. I would like the advice. Thanks.

pft training:

75 no pause/break pushups
80 fast situps
18 no kip pullups
rest ~10 min
1 mile run in 6:17

limiting factor on the run was definitely lack of oxygen and it started to become a factor around the 2/3mi mark...just about ready to drop to sea level and do this

To those of you having problems viewing the video, I think you need Quicktime in order to watch it.

It's not a Windows Media File.

Today, Cill gave us a special gift of a Crossfit "Sampler". Once again, it was similar to "Fight Gone Bad", but a bit different. The circuit consisted of a 250m row (each station lasted the duration of the rower's 250m time), box jumps, parallel bar walks, handstands, DB cleans, rev hypers, wall ball shots, and sit-ups. Repeat x 3. HAPPY 229th BIRTHDAY, USMC!

Happy 229th birthday, Marines! Let's keep all those who are in harm's way in our thoughts and our prayers.

Semper Fidelis

From the 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps:

(1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name "Marine". In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

(2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous military organizations in the world's history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation's foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and is the long eras of tranquility at home, generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

(3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term "Marine" has come to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

(4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as "Soldiers of the Sea" since the founding of the Corps.

Major General Commandant
