Anyone else having trouble finding the wk 2 games WOD?
Nevermind -- realized the wk 1 delay also pushed wk 2 back.
Bill, that is a great idea showing the firehouse gym. Looking forward to working with you again, bro.

froning's gonna rock it this year! cant wait to see how things turn out. so many athletes pushing the envelope this year. i think its going to come down to who periodizes the smartest so they have the ability to go all out.
Bill- Awesome vid of the station's CrossFit setup. Lots of creative ideas for people just getting started. All I can say is, I can't imagine stopping a killer WOD to don all your gear and go do something like fight a fire. Holy cats! You guys are tough.
Totally Jacked about the Montana FilFest!! Montana Rocks. Great Video, Sign me Up!!!
That's a great picture of some of the kids at CF Santa Clara - Jaime Loera has done an amazing job developing the program there!
Montana Gathering is gonna be sweet!
One of the best short poems ever written in the English language. Echoes of Ecclesiastes ('Vanity of vanities...') - at least to me - and the wonderful image of the "boundless" sands surrounding the wrecked statue with its bold proclamation.
YES!!! I'm SO there.. Just one more reason I can't wait for summer to get here :D
Big shoutout to Jaime for his work with the kids. They are fired up everyday.
The Forbes article seemed a little brief to me... seemed to just end. I really like the articles posted on crossfit, except this one really sucked. Go crossfi. Excited for this next cycle
I'm a week into the caveman/paleo/zone diet, and it's pretty easy to grasp, except for the fat portions. Besides nuts, what is considered a fat block in the zone? A guy can only eat so many almonds in a day.
You can try olive oil, avocado pear, soya bean oil, macadamia nuts, cashews, peanuts. .i usually just alternate.
There's tons of good fat sources...coconut oil, olive oil ,avocados, lard (make it yourself to avoid crappy stuff). Grass-fed butter and ghee are not technically "paleo", but it is delicious and good to go. Avoid too many nuts as they can pile up Omega 6's pretty quickly.
affiliate gathering...yes! where is the sign up page?!!!!
Thanks for the suggestions in fat sources Rencol and Craig.
Love the picture of the dogs today.
Crazy stoked about the gathering this year!!!

It's awesome to see some kids developing some power here. I wish my high school athletes had some of this growing up.
There’s one possible issue though with the picture (from a track and speed development coaching standpoint). If these kids are starting from a 3 or 4-point stance (or even crouched 2-point stance), that is way to much weight. It will teach them to pop straight up out of the start, especially with a shoulder harness. Less weight and a hip harness is best when working from a starting position. Just a thought.
Did Wendler's SWOD that I didn't get in on Mon or
Tues. DL and Shoulder press. 5-3-1+ based off of 90% of 1RM.
New to CF here and I did the WOD with the 10 down to 1 135 lbs front squats and 15 ft rope climb. My time sucked but it was an awesome workout. However since doing it my legs have been too sore to do anything and just walking sucks. My question is would it be better to keep doing the WODs as posted and wait till my soreness goes away to do another one or should I be scaling down the WODs to eliminate soreness and try to do them everyday? Thanks!
20 minutes and i had to scale down the hspu's with partner assisted i fell off the x fit wagon time to claw my way up the hill again special thanks to you guys doing the level one military certs i would have been a meat head
Regardless of your athletic background, there is nothing wrong with starting a little slow. Take some time to figure out how these WODs work. Then hit them hard in a week or so.
WOD at Crossfit Carbon. Difficult WOD today. Debating on trying to get the elusive 7th round on the Open WOD #1...
Make up as I am a few days behind
scaled the 10k to 5k:
May be slow to some but I am making improvements.
Someone must have renewed their Forbes subscription recently.
Shout out to SLO town! Love that Crossfit has taken a strong hold in my old hometown.
Makeup from yesterday:
WOD 2: Thruster-pullup ladder
looks like more problems on games website leaked the wod
WOD 2 was posted by mistake for a brief moment. Looks like the website still has plenty of bugs.
anybody hear about this? http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=6250055 Any idea what kind of workout these kids were doing? Sounds like classic rhabdo conditions like were warned about in that classic crossfit article from way back: kids hadn't worked out in 3 weeks, were encouraged to go hard, now 13 with rhabdo. Trainers didn't realize what it was until they diagnosed a kid with high blood pressure. All they say in the article is that it was a "squat based workout".
ps fyi, I'm not a troll, i love xfit and i've been doing it for 2 years, i'm just curious if anyone knows exactly what the kids were doing
Scott, check on CF football talktomejohnnie, search iowa football and rhabdo.
15-13-...3-1 HSPU alt. with 1-3-5...15-15 L-PU
In 2006 I did regular PU so did those here, too. I did ~70% of the PU on the Gravitron; here none. 2006 time 17:40
Yup, this stuff works.
is there any reason crossfit posts need to constantly have an article on the economy from a guy that inherited all of his money and simply took over his father's business operations?
the man is an advocate of a tax system invented by the man who created scientology.
45lbs Personal best
Seriously much respect to Bill Grundler... that is some creative stuff he did... :D
