First time WOD. Didn't seem like it would be as hard as some of the others but still challenging.
Proud to post my first WOD time for "michael"
That was an image worth enlarging! ;-}
Must take Rest Day . . . seeing visons of angels on the internet.
Is it okay to say that those women are drop-dead gorgeous and that I want to have all of them as my mistresses, assuming my wife wouldn't mind?
I have to agree. I didn't think I could be MORE motivated to work out...but it seems that moving to Huntington Beach would do it!
That's just...ummmm...I mean...I think that...wow
Notice the woman on the far left being attacked by the water. We pray for her safety.
i'm looking to start training with people from my area. Anyone know of any people on here that train around Syracuse?(is there a crossfit: Syracuse?)
Steve HB . . . I understand now.
In my next life I want to be a tank top.
Will, that might be the most profound statement/wish I've ever heard.
Is the girl second from the right Meagan C.?!?
Is the girl second from the right Meagan C.?!?
Heck, I didn't look that good BEFORE the CP Mud Run!!! It's just not right, I tells ya!
hehe. Next time look me up, CFHB! I'll meet up with you before or after.
That does it! A "girls of crossfit" calendar MUST be done.
Wow! Now if I only had workout partners like that, but no I only get mosquitoes. Great job ladies you will keep a lot of us guys working hard that's for sure. Now how do I make this my wallpaper???
Motivation if I ever saw it! My girlfriend and her friends did the Mud Run this year too... Their pics didn't turn out this good!
You should see the pics from the "Camp Pendleton Mud Wrestle," those are the good ones.
Now Don, let's not be sexist - a "men of crossfit" calendar might have a small but steady audience too. And for one or two of us, a "pitbulls of crossfit".
request: CrossFit girls gone wild
Looks like the CrossFit marketing department has struck gold (or should I say blonde?) again.
So the next seminar is going to be at CrossFit HB, right?
"That is why we find ourselves disproportionately graced by the company of intelligent and successful men and woman.
- Greg Glassman
Not to mention.....
So this what rest days are like over there eh?...
Girl on the left-does she CF?
It's all I can do to keep up; really!
Beth, I thought about the gender equality issue and having a "guys of crossfit" calendar too.
But then 6 pictures of Matt G and 6 of Dan Silver might go to their respective heads :)
Oh - even better idea Don - a "humor of Dan Silver" calendar! Like the far side ones or something.
Besides, there are some other attractive guys I know besides Dan and Matt. How about Robb Wolf? Mike Minium, Greg Amundson (though he is all over the web so maybe we don't need that one as much), Eddy works just fine too! I don't think I could make a list of only 12!
hey, this guy isnt married...how do i get to Huntington Beach?!
I am not going to comment on the sex appeal of other men.....
Not big on running myself so I instead propose Mud Wrestling. The pictured women, of course, strongly encouraged to participate.
i said the EXACT same thing as the first post here...
Anyone have the Nike "Free" shoes?....feedback please
Ya'd think that ya'll don't have hot chicks to train with south of the border?
Guns, warfare, terrorism, no health care, and not enough girls?!?
I'd best stay up north :>
So yeah, I'm officially motivated.
I call January and October!
Mud Run?! Sign me UP!! I was so involved in the beautiful picture I forgot today was a rest day!
Motivated by the picture to do a modified "Elizabeth" workout:
Clean with 2 40 lb. dumbells
Kettlebell swings with 1 40 lb. dumbell
push-ups with a 25 lb dumbell on my back.
My wife did squats, dead-lifts and burpies, plus a half-mile run.
As if I needed more motivation to finish this deployment and get back to Pendleton! WOW it's going to be good to get home next month. First stop, Pendleton fitness center to look for upcoming Mud Runs and other events.......
Iīm looking forward to two weeks holiday in Greece.
Maybe someone has assembled a no-weights/simple/on-the-road workout plan (or so), and wants to share it.
BTW: NICE PIC!!! Thatīs how to enjoy a Rest Day.
In the words of the "Continental"
"wow-e wow wow wow"
If the girl on the left is reading this, please email me. Enjoy the break everyone.
Can anyone tell me what diameter rope is suitable for the "rope climb". I'm wondering if 1 1/2'' is OK or is 2" advisable.
Kevin, posting a serious question on a day like this is not the way to get an answer . . . better to put it over in the "equipment" section of the message board.
I think either works well; choice would probably depend on your hand size. The rope that I can use is 1-1/2, and it feels good (for me), but I have fairly small hands.
Check out these threads:
This one on making your own pretty much lets you fine-tune the diameter exactly as you like it:
This one lists links to several suppliers:
David, thanks for the help and your sound advise. Kevin
That does it, I'm moving out of this female wasteland that is Central Florida! Best WOD pic ever! :P
Daniel, where in Greece are you going?
perhaps I can be of some assistance. ;-)
Here is a thread on the Nike Frees from another forum I frequent:
and another thread:
I know most of the people posting in the threads above, and they are all runners- most of them put up 25-40 miles per week. Some of them wear the Frees as their only shoe; some wear them just for shorter runs (or not for their long run, anyway). Most of the people I know with Frees are happy with them- but I have heard one report of them falling apart after less than 100 miles, but Nike will probably replace those for free.
Personally, I don't own Nike Frees (I'm an ASICS man), but my opinion is if you want to run barefoot- run barefoot. Start at low distances and work up as your feet toughen. Or run cross-country.
Email me if you have more questions...
It being a rest day, i decided to do a little skills practice. Worked on handstands, l-sits, and tuck planche. However, having smoked my abs and back with yesterday's WoD, i found l-sits and tuck planche work to be an exercise in futility. Managed to hold a handstand for over 30 seconds on one of my attempts, though! Happy about that (i really suck at handstands, among other skills / exercises).
Now off to do martial arts demos / seminars for the day. This is turning out to be less of a rest day that planned...
this is why I love CF-ing!! lol
keep it up
Even on rest days, Coach figures out a way to get our heart rates up.
Knock it off, that's my sister.
Great inspirational pic.
No rest day in Jxn, MS.
Level 3 advanced yoga class (2 hour)
followed by dance class
I am always grateful for a rest day on Thursdays...
Ah, the pleasures of living in OC. Lived here for over 30 years and the landscape never gets boring.
I was just telling the kids that tomorrow looks like a good day to head to HB and relax.
Looks like I was right!
Seeing the pic, I'm going to have to drop in on CFHB very soon. E-mail coming your way HB crew.
I'll let the rest of you know how it goes when they kick my rear.
Ron, do you REALLY think that we want to hear about your WORKOUT???
I think the single guys want to know names, phone numbers, zodiac signs etc etc.
Just trying to help.
So that's how you get Ron to come to your gym....bringing camera to next workout.
Can't rest after seeing that picture! OMFG.
I don't remember these young ladies when I lived in HB a couple of years back. I shouldn't have moved.
In info or contact for CrossFit HB?
5.5 mile trail run, 52:30 had about a 1/2 mile STEEP uphill right near the end that just about killed me.

YeeeHaaa!! Day off.
Still had to teach one hour core integration and ab class. 750 total count of crunches/back extension variations. Took one hour yoga class.
Thank the cross fit gods....
Afraid I'm going to make your mom jealous?
WOW and think to they kick my ass too...
Executed the "Michael" WoD (yesterday) today @ ~ 35:00.
- Some sets broken.
Michael today 25 Minutes. HOT in Georgia, and humid. I sure hope I get aclimated soon.
Nice pic of the girls, looking strong...and good.
1.5 mile pool swim - 40 min.
We really need a Crossfit San Diego. After seeing that pic "the girls of NAB" just aren't cutting it.
30lb dumbell swing x 75 reps
50 box jumps
Total time: 22:06:58
3 rounds of:
180lb sandbag carry X 100m
60lb sandbag squats x 20 (10 each shoulder)
40 lb db snatch x 20 (10 each hand)
135 lb one-hand farmer's x 100m (50 each side)
25 KTE (on aborigionals)
~ 40 min
talk about a core workout....
Michael 28:19. And about that 'wasteland of central Florida' comment...dude, Gainesville Florida is absolutely the land of the walking goddesses. Only to be outdone by the girls of FSU. And this comes from an old G8R who's been in SOCAL, NOCAL and Hawaii since 92. No offense, CFHB.
Is that Meghan second from right?!
Subbed good mornings for back extensions, otherwise, as rx'd.
Didn't time myself last time, but I went into this one hoping to beat 25 minutes. After the second round was also under 7 mins, I decided to try for a total of 21 minutes. I was stoked when I exceed that goal, so I figured I might be able to do my first muscle up too. I couldn't.
You already tried to lure me south by saying you're near a "chicken ranch."
Played golf today. Different.
CF has helped my swing apparently. Didn't lose a single ball.
I spent a couple of summers at Camp Pendleton, and I never, but *NEVER* saw anything as motivational as that picture!
You go, ladies! And me, I'm just not going to say anything more.
(old married fart - old married fart - must remember am old married fart)
Andy the M
Just had to sneak a peek at the ladies again to remind me why I want to run a 5K for today's WOD.
One of a few grab bag workouts at Brand X yesterday:
For time: 21, 18,15,12,9,6, 3
38 minutes (that's 84 pull ups and 84 thrusters)
I would like to be introduced to the one furthest left. I am in Camp Pendleton and I Crossfit!
Sheesh, what *is* it with you guys and the young lady on the left (I assume everyone means 'house' left) in that pic?
If I weren't an old married Dad kinda guy, I'd be fighting to get in line for an introduction to ANY of those beautiful, fit young Crossfitting women!!
Got my wife interested in serious training lately, though, so I think by the end of the year I'm a-gonna be havin' the best of all worlds!
The family that X-Fits together, uhm, I can't think of a rhyme for that...
oh my god... they really do exist. women that are in shape and drop dead gorgeous. does camp pendelton need another corpsman?
