Chem Girl is a door gunner? Dang!
that chem girl can flat out do the oly lifts as well!!!!! i want my daughter sage to be like: chem girl, annie, nichole, and all the other ladies of crossfit!!!! hmmm...i guess i covered my behind on that one!!!! sage will be at the seminar in april.....come all and watch this 14 yr old flat out lift in the oly lifts.....
If I can't come up there in April, and I can't, I'll just have to see Sage in action at Mike's Gym!!
Say, my brother is moving back down to So. Cal from lovely Sparks, NV. Wonder how much houses in Bonsal are going for these days?????
Is that her friend Puff next to her?
Okay, the verdict is in, Chem is the coolest person on the planet.
Brains, brawn, and beauty in one very sweeeeeet person. ChemGirl rocks!
Way too cool chem girl. You rock!
12:23 Helen at my house (50#db) nothing special going on there.
Rather than take the rest day, a group of us masochistic New Yorkers hit Central Park this morning, to be put through the paces by HQ ambassadors Tony and Nicole.
Started off with Tabata Squats (though, fortunately, not bottom-to-bottom), then did this for time:
400 Meter Run
85 Meter Lunges
Repeat at 15 and 9 reps.
Followed by gasping for breath, playing around with rings (my first time on them, and my first muscle-up!), and swearing that we'll all be hitting future New York group workouts.
Tony and Nicole were even more wonderful live than they are digitally, and we couldn't have asked for a better morning. On behalf of the NYC CrossFit'ers, huge thanks to them both!
I will probably jump some rope today, work on the rings, and work some handstands.
Any ideas for a brief workout today?
Chem girl, thanks for your service.
Fight gone bad in Baltimore:
Overtrained, taking a week off for focused recovery. See you in 7.
chem girl, you rock
I'm with you Alex M. Got raging tendonitis in my right elbow and a subluxating left shoulder which has been bothering me quite a lot recently. See y'all in 7 days.
Road (cycle)into work for the first time
28.5 km average intowork (20Km)
25.5 ave out
whenever you are in town...you can do "jump-Outs" with my crew.
Hey y'all...if possible, please be kind on the Sunday WOD. Unfortunately I lived in a backward-assed town where the powers that be seem to forget not everyone celebrates Easter (in other words, the damn gym is closed).
Happy Easter to those that do celebrate.
Re: Easter Sunday WOD
I'm predicting a 10k run, it just feels like it's time.
oh i hope so! PRed on my 5k run today, and I was just going "easy"...Crossfit does so much more than you can even tell about yourself.
Matt, my gym is closed to, who doesn't want to work their butt off on easter sunday?
I did a very slow 2 mile run this morning. Actually it was more like a jog and then a walk. Anyway,it took me like 22min. :(
Last July I had the pleasure of meeting and beginning to coach Phil G. Phil is a San Jose, Caifornia PD officer who wanted to run one leg of an extreme long distance competitive relay run called 'Baker-to-Vegas.'
'Think CrossFit will help with running?'
'I believe it will, let's try.'
Today Phil did his first full five round Fight Gone Bad (the run is about a month away still) for a workout. He said after three rounds 'I'm done.' But I told him; 'I'll keep the watch running, let's see if we can't finish the last two rounds, even if you're getting 2's and 3's.'
Score by round; 94 + 76 + 68 + 63 + 63 + 61 = 362!
Best part (for the coach) was watching Phil catch a toe and face plant on the first set of box jumps, then scramble back to his feet and attack the box mumbling; 'damn, there go three or four reps.' What's that about men being willing to die for points?
Strong work Phil!
Nice work Phil (and Ross)! Keep crankin' it out...
I'm going to be traveling to Germany in the next couple days. I'm bummed to be missing the WOD's...I'll sneak in a few push ups and crunches.
I'll start back up in Germany and I"m going to stay a couple of days behind. I'll still post.
Take care Ya'll and see you in a couple days.
mt rose today for skiing galore. im not that great, so ~15 runs on the blues was a solid 'rest' day workout.
active rest day.
30 box jumps - 30"
30 reverse hypers
30 knees to elbows
30 burpees (with pushup)
time = 26:06
I asked this question once before and didn't get an answer. Why is her nic name Chemgirl?
Minus that extra round of 63.....
Andy, I asked her at the last XFit Cert. If I remember correctly her name is ChemGirl 'cause she used to teach chemical warfare.
The girl is savage. I make all my clients watch the mpeg of Chemgirl, Annie, and Nicole doing Grace 'cause they rock it so hard. They're always like, "Whoa I want to be like them!" and I'm like "Yeah you do!"
