Beautiful picture! That's a scene I'd love to add to my garage gym.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Steve S at November 16, 2005 6:37 PM

The line appears ready.


Comment #4 - Posted by: Dan Silver at November 16, 2005 6:49 PM

Nice picture. I will be in PR next week, it'd be nice to see a crossfit workout in the island.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Erika at November 16, 2005 7:04 PM

Something about women and guns. . .

Comment #6 - Posted by: Ron Nelson at November 16, 2005 7:06 PM

Gives new meaning to "Get some"

Comment #7 - Posted by: Krista J. at November 16, 2005 7:23 PM

Such a bitter sweet feeling, those rest days.

"Something about women and guns..."

I second that.

Comment #8 - Posted by: robp at November 16, 2005 7:34 PM

any saved rounds or alibi's?

Comment #9 - Posted by: dan van at November 16, 2005 9:02 PM


A man-made disaster of cataclysmic proportions is currently taking place in my thighs. More at eleven.


Comment #10 - Posted by: Dan Silver at November 16, 2005 10:18 PM

Crossfit workout for the day!

Dodge bullets for time.

"You know, I can't think of nothing finer than a fine naked woman holding a gun."

-Michael Clarke Duncans character "Frankie Figs" in "The Whole Nine Yards"

Of course being clothed at the the range is much less of a distraction, and therefore ALOT safer.

Comment #12 - Posted by: acl at November 16, 2005 11:10 PM

They let you own guns in PR? Nice....

Comment #13 - Posted by: TimW at November 16, 2005 11:14 PM

The pain, the sheer pain from yesterday's WOD. Oww. I feel like I've been beaten up by CrossFit again..

Comment #14 - Posted by: Orrin at November 17, 2005 12:20 AM

#1 sign of complete psychosis, I'm not relieved when I look at the WOD & see "Rest Day".
Am I all alone in this or are there others with me on the express train to the funny farm?

Comment #15 - Posted by: Cates at November 17, 2005 1:24 AM

Comment #16 - Posted by: Erika at November 17, 2005 3:53 AM

Does anyone have any idea who sings the Joelene song in the "Classic Greg Amundson and Josh Everett faceoff over Fran" video? I've heard it before, but never could find out who it was or what the name of the song is...I've tried searching "Jolene" (& various iterations of it) to no avail. Thanks.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Joselin at November 17, 2005 5:10 AM

It sounds like the White Stripes...

Comment #18 - Posted by: Joselin at November 17, 2005 5:15 AM

Cates: I'm with you on that...every rest day only makes me wonder what's next and I try to guess what we might be doing next. Definitely not relaxed but more tense...

Comment #19 - Posted by: Erika at November 17, 2005 6:14 AM

You sure this is Crossfit PR and not just the side of Eugene's garage gym?

Comment #20 - Posted by: Mark G. at November 17, 2005 6:33 AM

great picture

but the real reason I'm posting is to say that I just couldn't take it anymore had to do Fran

time= 2:53 not my best but it was just as much fun as I remember, I luv you fran.

Comment #21 - Posted by: Reed at November 17, 2005 6:41 AM

Is that the "21 rounds for time" workout?

Comment #22 - Posted by: Clay Jones at November 17, 2005 7:51 AM

The song is the White Stripes' rendition of a Dolly Parton song Jolene, off of the album The White Stripes Blackpool Deluxe (Live). I'm pretty sure I've seen it on iTunes. Hope that helps. GET SOME!

Comment #23 - Posted by: Marty_FL at November 17, 2005 8:02 AM

Going after the chipper today. If not back within an hour, send backup.

Why can't I get the image of Dan's cataclysmic thighs out of my head? Sick.

Comment #24 - Posted by: Ron Nelson at November 17, 2005 8:33 AM

Thank God for rest days. I haven't been able to walk right all week...

Comment #25 - Posted by: Jake at November 17, 2005 8:54 AM

The Sisters of Mercy did a version of "Jolene" as well.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Steve S at November 17, 2005 8:57 AM

did 21*15*9 75#Sandbag thruster/pullup combo

Bad news-- went to do muscle up afterwards and failed. I've got to get those stronger!!

Comment #27 - Posted by: mike joyce at November 17, 2005 9:01 AM

with each passing hour, the soreness from yesterday's WOD intensifies...

Comment #28 - Posted by: Ian T at November 17, 2005 9:33 AM

Comment #29 - Posted by: Jonthan Jensen at November 17, 2005 9:35 AM

Anybody watching the video of Greg yesterday notice how his box jumps look like levitation? I swear he's wearing a wire and harness. Makes it look effortless, compared to my plodding crash to the top of the box.

Comment #30 - Posted by: Baron at November 17, 2005 9:53 AM

Did some handstand practice today, rowed a light 1,000 meters.

During yesterday's workout I rowed a 1:49 without straps, which I thought was pretty good.

Comment #31 - Posted by: Lincoln at November 17, 2005 10:00 AM

*that's 1:49 for 500 meters.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Lincoln at November 17, 2005 10:00 AM

Anyone else notice that the chippers never 'Get Some' as much as Fran?

The post numbers really skyrocket for that particular lady.

Ahhh. I love to hate Fran.

Comment #33 - Posted by: J Jones at November 17, 2005 10:25 AM

I see CrossFit PR.
I read CrossFit Public Relations.
Funny how the mind works.

Comment #34 - Posted by: Jeff at November 17, 2005 11:55 AM

Focus guys. There are seven shooters! Each in CF shape and a dead eye for the target

Comment #35 - Posted by: Steve at November 17, 2005 11:55 AM

I'm w/you Cates! I'm sitting here contemplating on if I should take a true day off, or do a run and then jump in the pool for some finning....... All aboard!!!!

Comment #36 - Posted by: DJ at November 17, 2005 12:05 PM

Time to take the CF gym to the range. I'd love to see the same picture taken right after FGB or Fran...or... Any takers in Colorado? I'd participate.

Comment #37 - Posted by: jkk at November 17, 2005 12:21 PM

It may sound like a generalisation but the "Gun thing" is quite an American love affair.I saw the picture and just thought"and?". I may be totally wrong but I wonder how many Crossfitters from the UK thought the same ( uh oh can of worms coming open ...!)Anyway rest days are a time of contemplation and happiness is a warm gun...

Comment #38 - Posted by: Guy at November 17, 2005 12:39 PM

Edit to first post. Got angry, rested a few minutes, and went out and hit an easy muscle up. Going to max them first thing tomorrow to see where I am.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Mike Joyce at November 17, 2005 12:49 PM

Couldn't get the video to play of yesterdays workout but I attempted it today. Am very much in pain now and I cut the last 3 exercises in reps and had to substitute. Can't wait for the am.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Jim M at November 17, 2005 1:18 PM


I wouldn't say the "Gun thing" is any more the sole province of the US than is something like racial discrimination. Just ask the French about that.(how's that for a can-o-worms?)

Comment #41 - Posted by: Rob_M at November 17, 2005 1:23 PM

sorry Guy but i cant take you seriously since you spell generaliSation with an s instead of a z, as God intended

we Americans discovered this language and it's about time you English people learned how to use it

so don't be dishing us about our weaponry

Comment #42 - Posted by: gbass at November 17, 2005 2:10 PM

now that's funny.

Comment #43 - Posted by: Ron Nelson at November 17, 2005 2:51 PM

Comment #44 - Posted by: Irena at November 17, 2005 2:55 PM

my day for the 5k. missed it earlier this week. then maybe a rest day?

Comment #45 - Posted by: Ben at November 17, 2005 3:23 PM

Crossfit Bible

...And on the fourth day Coach ended his work which he had put us through, and we rested on the fourth day from all his work which we had done. Then Coach blessed the fourth day and sanctified it, because in it we rested from all his work which we had done....

Comment #46 - Posted by: Josh W. at November 17, 2005 3:44 PM

paralysis by analysis quote from Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage:

"But then he said that his tireless fate would bring forth, when the strife lulled for a moment, a man to ask of him an explanation. In imagination he felt the scrutiny of his companions as he painfully labored through some lies.

"Eventually, his courage expended itself upon these objections. The debates drained him of his fire." (p.66 of the Vintage edition...great book)

Comment #47 - Posted by: ediddy at November 17, 2005 3:58 PM

My lower back is killing me in a bad way from I believe the GHD's. Anyone have any suggestions as to improving my form or maybe just not doing those @#$% things again. I didn't have the equipment so i just used a flat bench with my feet locked into a squat rack. I have to get back to my ice and ibuprofen. Thanks for any help.

Comment #48 - Posted by: cody at November 17, 2005 5:01 PM

DJ, take a true day off my friend. If you do fin
keep the hurt shoulder as the trailer arm.

Comment #49 - Posted by: Stage,C at November 17, 2005 5:15 PM


Did you watch the video on GHD's 051111? Watching that helped in answering any questions I had. Check it out.


Comment #50 - Posted by: DJ at November 17, 2005 5:17 PM

I was filling guilty bro, so I did a 1000yd fin(all leg, no arms) and an easy 4 miler. Probably should of taken the rest, but couldn't get it out of my mind. How's things up there? Thanks for keeping me motivated. It looks like it's gong to be a fight to get what I want.


Comment #51 - Posted by: DJ at November 17, 2005 5:22 PM

It's called freedom; a number of my British friends envy ours and even travel here to indulge.

Comment #52 - Posted by: Jim W at November 17, 2005 6:41 PM

Group Moffett completed 10 rounds for time of:

135lb Deadlifts x 15 reps
Pushups x 15 reps

Total time: 20:50:79

We are still sore from yesterday's WOD, so it was difficult to continue with the 10 rounds for today.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Adrian D at November 17, 2005 6:43 PM

I see the picture about the people are shooting in a shooting range.
The position is incorect like also the hands.
If you want a basic shooting course I can offer to you.


David Schinasi

Comment #54 - Posted by: David Schinasi at November 17, 2005 9:11 PM

You know, the mention of being on the firing line after a WOD isn't a bad one, especially for those of us who look at shooting as another martial art.

I'll have to give this one some thought....

Comment #55 - Posted by: TimW at November 17, 2005 9:19 PM

Thought that would get a reaction..put some colour in someones cheeks or is that color...!
