NICE WOD . It always looks eaiser then it will feel tomorrow though.

So what's the weight for women? 95#?

so burpee pullups are just grabbing the bar and doing a pullup at the peak of the jump?

;-( @ quoting Epicurius

1 Corinthians 2:14

14 The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.


Doesn't take a genius, or even a Christian to recognize a fool's statement when he reads one...

Come on crossfit.com, let's not promote the secular quotes like this. There are a lot of believers out there that appreciate crossfit and probably cringe just like I do when they see mainstream organizations like Crossfit.com start with the anti-Christian rhetoric. I do not think it is wise to be promoting quotes like that. You are only a few words away from legit blasphemy...

Really, I know it is hard to not to want to suppress the truth in unrighteousness, but it just isn't good practice to promote it like this.

Anyways, keep up the good programming, and looking forward to following the upcoming Games!

As RX'd, got 6:50. Im 75" and used a 9 foot bar!

Comment #8 - Posted by: Brian D at July 1, 2011 6:54 PM

@ #7

Maybe you should just be a little more oen minded instead of trying to force your religion onto an organization that's providing you with FREE elite workouts. Enjoy the WODs, enjoy the videos and enjoy the quotes. If something doesn't sit well with you, either suck it up and move on or quit coming to crossfit mainsite

Comment #9 - Posted by: Andy at July 1, 2011 7:01 PM

Christians are so very sensitive. Seems to me if you're belief was rock solid it would matter not at all what anyone else thought, said or believed. But then again, they do believe in an omnipotent, omnipresent being that declares it a sin if you so much as take his name in vain.

Comment #10 - Posted by: CUZ at July 1, 2011 7:17 PM

@ #7 US Marine,
Easy, partner! That quote wasn't a slam on God or Christianity. Epicurius was doing his thing a couple hundred years before Christ. Seems like this quote is more in the vein of "God helps those who help themselves" I'm a believer myself though and appreciate 1 Cor. 2:14! Great verse.

Comment #11 - Posted by: Daniel at July 1, 2011 7:48 PM

#7: "It is folly for a man to pray to the gods for that which he has the power to obtain by himself." Please explain how this is "secular".

Comment #12 - Posted by: Harpo m/44/5'7"/145 at July 1, 2011 7:48 PM

To Cuz/Comment #10

Its comical how you criticize him for stating his beliefs but yet you are hypocritical and turn right around to state what you believe to be true about christians. At least bring something intelligent to the table if your going to fire back! Its hard to fathom that you believe in crossfit where athletes have pushed their bodies to limits that humans once thought to be impossible but yet you don't believe in a higher being.

Romans 8:31
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

Comment #13 - Posted by: Jeremy at July 1, 2011 7:49 PM

For me, a Christian, this quote sounds quite on par with my beliefs and religious teachings. It truly is folly to pray for something you can obtain on your own. We pray only to identify ourselves with God and to worship Him for what he has provided. (I'm not preaching to anyone and nor do I attend church for those of you who think I'm proselytizing.) my main point in this is that why should we criticize the Epicurius quote. If there is anything Christian or for that matter anything in any religion that all of us share it's Love.

Maybe Epicurius understood that God is not a business man like most of us think he is (maybe including yourself (#7). God does not do business deals; "what we are we are from God and what we have we have from God and not from ourselves"(Eckhart pg 245).

Illustrating that foolish wishes are not the purpose of religious worship/prayer is anything but secular. I think you should take some time to truly read the quote for how it means and not what you want it to mean.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Jon S at July 1, 2011 7:52 PM

#13: "Its hard to fathom that you believe in crossfit where athletes have pushed their bodies to limits that humans once thought to be impossible but yet you don't believe in a higher being." This is such a non-sequitur that I begin to suspect a troll.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Harpo m/44/5'7"/145 at July 1, 2011 7:56 PM

#7 I too am a Christian but am no way offended by this quote. I have seen so many difference quotes on the mainpage throughout the years to know they are not "promoting" anything. They are simply sharing a famous, thought provoking, quote. Keep an open mind. Your reaction often gives Christians a bad rep.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Gaines at July 1, 2011 7:57 PM

i don't think you all are reading the quote correctly. It's not saying that you're dumb for being a christian, it's saying "quit looking for someone to hand you something that you can accomplish yourself."

Comment #19 - Posted by: voodoo at July 1, 2011 8:28 PM

#17 Voodoo... Work on flexibility. Start adding in some planche pushups into your warm up a few times a week. I've seen that help people at my gym.

#11 there was no before Christ/God, if you want to be literal about it.....

Comment #22 - Posted by: Nick Smith at July 1, 2011 8:43 PM

In my opinion as a Christian, this quote is in no way offensive to a believer. The message it sends to me is a "Dont call the plumber if you can plunge the toilet yourself" sort of thing. If youre capable, why not just do it?

Comment #23 - Posted by: sean at July 1, 2011 9:10 PM

This quote didn't even register as a religious or non religious anything to me when I first read it. I was only thinking about how bad its going to suck to do 135# front squats followed by burpee pull-ups.

However, mainsite site tend to promote a few political points of few.I agree that mainsite should abstain from discussing religion and politics. It's never a polite discussion among friends.

6:23 RX

Kinda janked a tendon in my forearm.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Jeremy at July 1, 2011 9:28 PM

I believe Epicurius was merely stating the obivious... God, or the Gods, which ever you believe are busy, so get off your lazy bum and do something for yourself. I have a ton of atlas stones to make and no matter how hard I pray, no angel, gnome, pixy or unicorn is going to come and make them for me, although I wish they would. Work hard, WOD Hard, have fun, love deeply and the rest is trivial

Comment #26 - Posted by: DJ at July 1, 2011 9:29 PM

Sure, do something for yourself, but so what if you want to pray too? Doesn't hurt to keep an open mind and try all your options!

Comment #27 - Posted by: Paul at July 1, 2011 9:56 PM

Epicurius was a Greek philosopher, his statement was against the Greek God's of the day. His statement was right for the day and age where people would sit around and wait for the God's i.e. Zeus or whichever one etc...to bless them...Ironically in Christianity the same scenario occurs. So if you will "It is folly for a Christ follower to pray to God for that which he has the power to obtain by himself (like working hard and earning the money for that Mercedes instead of asking God to give it to you pro bono). Wow this quote should have been on a rest day! LOL

It's not often I can do a wod as RX'd so I jumped all over this one and did it as mens' Rx

3 x (12 front squats 135#,12 burpee pullups)

I am 5'11" (rounded up and with short arms) and I jumped to an 8' bar

@#28 congrats, doesn't seem turtlish to me

@#5 yep, that's all it is

@#3 http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/faq.html#General6 is the recommended "official" crossfit workout. Take heed to their last warning, don't do pullups if the WOD is full of pushups.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Ben M/25/6"/190 at July 1, 2011 10:50 PM


115 front squats x 15
12 x chinup burpees

It is my own reluctance to post here anymore bc it has become a board of religious and political rants sometimes. I am interested to see what people are improving on and what their completion times are on the WOD prescribed.
Will add 20 pd vest for Pullups.

If you're serious about religion and god you understand it is guidance, principles and morality tales to apply to your daily life to help you be a better person! Taking it literally leads to fanaticism!
WOD looks great though! Going to do it now will post time after

Comment #38 - Posted by: lloyd f m/23/80kg at July 2, 2011 2:29 AM

You know what I hate?

I hate when Atheists try to shove their beliefs down my throat.

Hypocrisy, much? One person makes a statement on here suggesting that the Mainsite should avoid quoting things which may actually offend a group of people, and he's blasted out of orbit.

Yet, if in the public eye anything remotely promoting or supporting Christianity comes up, then the perpetrator is lambasted and all but lynched by the hypocritical Atheists who seem thoroughly offended by the fact that some people actually believe in God.

Take a look at yourselves. Honestly.

Grip on 1st set of front squats was poor (holding bar in palm, instead of fingertips). Bit of a strained wrist, but corrected for last two sets.

Christains are sensitive ? How about EVERYONE is who believe in what they believe. Do you say the same thing to so how many other groups who march for their causes daily ? We are so sensitive and understand everyone else and what their trying to achieve, but when it comes to christians, thats a different story. Talk about any one else and their ways, its a hate crime, talk badly about christians its seeming to become more and more a fun time game for everyone.

@ 49

Are you freaking kidding me? Treated for psychological disorders? Some of the most driven, intelligent, caring people I know happen to be very religious as well. They're positive people making this world a better place. How can I complain or ask them to change? And why the hell would I? If that crutch make makes them happy and most focused and out of the gutters society. Then who cares? You're the one who's irrational by judging those you've never met.

Comment #62 - Posted by: gs at July 2, 2011 6:46 AM

i dont think this quote is a bad one. i think it supposed to represent human strength and courage. it represents the fact that humans dont need to wait for someone to make things happen for them rather they need to go out and make this thing happen for themselves. We need not worry of being anti-christian fore this is not of importance, it is when we become anti-god that we back ourselves into a corner that is hard to stray from.

I think this sort of somes it up:-

The Commando's Prayer

Give me, my God, what you still have;
give me what no one asks for.
I do not ask for wealth, nor success,
nor even health.

People ask you so often, God, for all that,
that you cannot have any left.
Give me, my God, what you still have.
Give me what people refuse to accept from you.
I want insecurity and disquietude;
I want turmoil and brawl.

And if you should give them to me,
my God, once and for all,
let me be sure to have them always,
for I will not always
have the courage to ask for them.

#28 Not turtle slow -- BAD ASS! Keep up the good work.

As for the religious debate. If you need to pray/believe, then pray/believe. If you don't, then don't. The key is to be strong enough to decide for yourself what you need. Don't let someone else decide for you.

who is epicurius... i think its a website about food.

EPICURUS or Epikouros

to #7. he's ancient greek. roughly 300 years before christ, he is as much concerned with a christian god as you are with being accurate as to the philosophical meaning of the quote.

and dont worry, epicurus winds up with the materialists in the 6th circle of hell.

Comment #72 - Posted by: phil at July 2, 2011 7:49 AM

1. The existence of the creator of the heavens and earth is in evidence everywhere you care to look.
2. The prophets of god where not ordinary men. They where the cream of the crop. The best of all of gods creations which is why they were chosen to show us the signs of the existence of a superior being and of the life hereafter.
3. Mankind originates from one source and therefore we are all brothers and sisters in this life and should therefore be showing each other love and compassion regardless of what we choose to believe in.
4. The quote used on today's wod was not offensive at all to me.
5. I am not preaching to anyone so please forgive me if that's how it comes over.
6. Crossfit is the greatest physical training methodology in the world bar none.
7. Coach Glassman is a genius.

Did this in CS at mag's apartment gym, so no recorded time and:

3 rounds:
12 X 50# Dumbbell squats
12 X 50# dumbbell burpee + Ground to overhead

Got all squats unbroken, first round of burpee/G2O unbroken then burpee/G2O was broken up in 2s and 3s. Not really manmakers, cuz i did "sumo power snatch" G2O like a lot of the regionals athletes. Those dumbbells were heavy!

Just back from combination vacation and CFKids cert in Oahu. First chance to write. I looked forward to this cert for the past couple of years and it certainly lived up to my expectations.

The Martin family, Todd and Aimee put on a great cert with extremely practical information for all age levels from 3-17. They were informative and helpful throughout the weekend.

The package they have developed is awesome and I've already started to successfully use the cues on my 6 and 7 year olds. Someone wrote after my L1 cert in 2008 that I really needed to go to this one to better address the needs of the high school age kids with whom I work, and finally having been able to attend, I see why.

I recommend this cert to anyone who works with kids or has kids of their own. I certainly aim to see that my kids have no perception of fitness other that CrossFit.

Thanks to Coach and the Martins for all they do.

as rx'd. bar at 9'


breaking 5 was my goal. collapsed afterwards haha. good WOD!

o, and let's all please diverge from this christian vs. anti christian debating. I'm all for expressing opinions and intelligent conversation, but.... I really don't think the quote deserved this kind of uproar.

I take the quote to mean that Epicurus disagreed with people praying for achievements that they never actually worked for themselves. In that respect, he wasn't bashing the gods; he was just stating that people should work towards their goals rather than just praying that God will graciously award them without them putting forth effort. If the quote is interpreted in that way, a christian should have no problem accepting it. I think we can all agree that people should certainly work hard for their goals whether they pray to god or not. Regardless, i think the quote is more of a motivational tool telling us to work hard rather than an anti god/christian remark.

Just my take on it. I prefer to not view the quotes in a negative way. Now let's all get back to posting WOD results!

Yes, let's get back to crossfit, but first let's clarify some things. Look folks, connect the dots here below, if you feel like reading this that is, if not, then please don’t! I’m going to be as brief as I can, as this would normally be a few hour conversation. And I agree, this is not the place (an open forum that is), but since it has presented itself…

The objective truth that exists in the Bible is offensive. The Gospel (the good news) of Jesus Christ is extremely offensive. I mean --> Who, but the Spirit of God can bring a man to truly understand what the Bible says about how God views man so that he can realize his true need of a Savior? Man, apart from God, and by himself, will never come to the understanding of this need. Man’s depravity, his natural condition that is, makes him totally unable to do what God requires of Him in order to be saved. It’s just the whole “unperfectness” of man’s efforts before God, everything in man is tainted by sin. This is why the only true religion that exists has God doing for man what only God can do. In true Christianity, God is the author from beginning to end of man’s salvation. All other religions always have man trying to “DO” something to earn their way to Heaven. This is the epic mistake that all man-made religions apart from Christianity makes. All false religions are created in a fashion so that it has man trying to appease a god of some sort by acting, doing, or being in a certain way that said religion thinks is good. This “good” behavior done by the person of said religion then “pleases” said god of that religion and then the person can rest knowing that they are “earning” their way to heaven. This is deception at it's highest, and the sad thing about it is the fact that man has an over-inflated view of himself and loves to buy into the idea that he can "earn" his way!! Man's pride is absolutely wicked when taken out of proportion to what is actually true about him. This is the mistake though, that man thinks they are "good" enough to earn their way to heaven. In reality though, no one can earn their way or please the true and living God of the Bible apart from being in Jesus Christ. Only one Man has ever pleased God, and this was God-Incarnate: Jesus Christ.

#59, great segway verse. Those 2 verses there from Ephesians says it all. Salvation is a gift from God. Man doesn’t “earn” it. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. It's that simple.

Romans 10:17
17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Only by hearing the good news of the Gospel can man be saved. The Spirit of God gives the faith. The faith that saves that is. That is salvation according to the Bible.

Through His Spirit, God will convict you of your sins and show you your total inability to do anything at all pertaining to your salvation in the sight of this holy and just God, and from this you will then see your utter and complete need of a Savior. A Savior that God provided for you through His Son Jesus Christ. You see? There has to be payment for sins. People like to think that God is love and only love, but this “only love” view of God is radically inadequate! Think about it. If you love babies, then you will hate abortions. If you love whatever it is… then you will hate whatever it is that is against it. Etc, etc! God is righteousness, so He is going to hate unrighteousness. God is perfectly just and He is perfectly holy. You can never separate God’s love apart from His wrath or His justice. What demonstrates His love so perfectly is that He sent His Son to die in the place of sinners. That is love. He could have left us all alone to face His wrath. But He didn’t. He chose to have mercy on some and provided a means of reconciliation to those that would come to believe on His Son Jesus Christ.

Bottom line, the Bible teaches that the true and living God is a just and holy God and that every sin that is ever committed will be punished. There are two ways the Bible explains that sins have/will be paid for.

1. Man will exercise the faith and repentance given him by God and places his trust in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross ALONE, or.. In this way, Christ atones for the sins of those who believe on Him.

2. Man will pay for his sins himself by going his own way and in this rejecting God. In this way, it is man who accounts for his own sins.

There is no other way to God. Jesus Himself said what in John 14:6? 6Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” You can’t get it any clearer than that…

Universally, every single human being that has ever lived on this earth has a divine appointment with death that can’t be escaped.

Hebrews 9:27
27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,
So, it’s that simple people.

As for unbelievers out there, please consider this, especially those brazen and stubborn individuals like DocLefty:

Romans 1:18-21

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

There will be no excuse on the day of Judgment. Even the most hardened rebellious individual will yield like a wax figurine under the heat of a blast furnace when he comes face to face with God. There will be no excuse. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Rom 3:23. Everyone is guilty. You either know Christ or you don't.

In times of old when America was new and was built based off of many of the principles of Christianity, the reality of this was not far off from being known by everyone. But oh have we slid and regressed in our thinking towards man-centered ideas such humanism and secularism.
What is sad to me is that people say “you need to think for yourself”. Really? Is that the best excuse you have? Come on, can you just not see that all you are doing is suppressing the truth that you already know exists by making up some silly catch phrase that makes you feel like you are independent from reality and not accountable? It would be the same as driving in a foreign country or a different city or State that you are unsure of the laws there and when you get pulled over for being a lawbreaker, you immediately say “Hey, I didn’t sign up for these laws, I had no clue they were what they were.” Right, and this dismisses you from being held accountable too right? No! Of course it doesn’t! It’s like you are saying that you are special and that the way God set up His creation does not apply to you.

I've said enough. This really doesn't belong in a forum on here, it's just too hard to convey what is needed to be said.

Be careful DocLefty! You are treading in waters that have no shore and you have no life preserver with that mindset you are currently possessing.

The message is simple and for those that do not have a personal relationship with Christ it remains the same as it always has: Repent and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Take care,
An 0369 Gunny - a sinner saved by grace.

"The worst tyranny in human history was carried out by utopian idealists. These idealists plunged their nations into famine, war and genocide for great ideals and laudable virtues. Utopian dreams are always psychotic. They promise that we can achieve what no generation before us has achieved. They ask us to unleash, one last time, acts of horrific violence and repression to make ourselves happy. These dark visions begin with the annihilation of the other, but end with self-annihilation. In the name of beauty, progress and truth they bring death." ~ Chris Hedges, from, I Don't Believe in Atheists, pg. 43

@ DocLefty, #102:
What Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens propose is, in fact, a utopian ideal. They take evolution and the idea of progress too far. They are constantly misrepresenting world religions, arguing that the greatest atrocities have been perpetrated in the name of religions, while ignoring the dark side of human nature. In short, they propose a scientific fundamentalism which is no different than Islamic or Christian fundamentalism.
I sympathize with you to an extent: the realm of knowledge is within science, but the realm of wisdom is with religion. Religion asks questions which science cannot answer, and using science as the sole source of wisdom is as dangerous as using the scripture as a scientific text.
When you started being condescending--that's when you lost. I know it's hard when you think you see a fool to not call out his folly, but "Do not answer a fool according to his folly, lest ye be the fool."--That's from Proverbs:)
Please see the above quote that I have posted. The book cited above critiques the fundamentalism which the authors you have cited propose.

C'mon dude, you don't have to put up this highly-educated subterfuge to give you the ability to be condescending in this discussion. People who have a science background do not parry about in conversation and demean their counterpart. They state their position and back it up with evidence. They make thoughtful counterpoints and try to add to the discussion. You have done none of these things. Also, an argument based in fact needs no substantiation from a list of famous biologists.

You are trying to espouse a tired old argument that has not held any water for the last 50 years, which is that any gap in scientific understanding somehow directly points to "proof" of a designer. This "God in the gaps" argument has been used for DNA, the complexity of the human eye, bacterial locomotion with regards to flagella, celestial mechanics, and ad nauseum. Every time some ID proponent finds a "silver bullet" that they believe cannot be explained by science they jump on it as it that is the deistic nail in the coffin for science. Shortly thereafter science develops a model that explains the phenomenon and the ID crowd goes to move the goal-posts of the discussion back until they can find another "absolute proof" theory to toss out there.

And not to put too fine of a point on it, but you have put forth zero proof, zero facts, zero theories, and have submitted nothing of value to the discussion. In fact, your entire argument seems to be an Ad Hominem tirade against me and a vague god-of-the-gaps claim.

Also, (not that it is of any importance to the discussion) butI have been posting on the main WOD site and following the Crossfit model for the better part of 7 years.

Very upset with performance, need to stop making excuses and go hard till I meet pukie again.

On the religion argument, why can't we just say that we can't prove scientifically that god exists, that's why it's called faith, you're supposed to believe without seeing, and simply leave it at that? Obviously I'm religious but I have friends who are atheist and we have discussions (not arguments or name-calling) all the time, personally I loved the quote.

Just my 2 cents, I certainly don't know everything.

@ Espinosa #114

First off thanks for the cogent reply. I don't think Dawkins or Harris misrepresent Christianity or Islam. And when is the last time an atheist bombed an abortion clinic or flew a plane into a building? When was the last militant atheist suicide bombing or started a war over science?" When is the last time atheists burned people at the stake or beheading a 14 year old rape victim for an honor killing?

Harris and Dawkins and their brethren quote directly out of the Bible and Koran. And since science is based on observation & knowledge, wouldn't scientific fundamentalism be exactly what we need? We use science to discern our earthly surroundings every day, in every thing we do. Why should religion be any different? Why would we not turn the blade of reason and logic to religion but everything else?

And as far as the dark side of human nature, what else but religion has facilitated such large scale cruelty to our fellow humans? These holy books tell people that they can rape, kill, and torture other humans if the "repent" and are forgiven. It tells people from birth how broken they are and how to they should submit to something higher just to be forgiven for being born broken?

I also agree with you on the prior post, I should have taken the high road and kept my comments objective. I need to work on that in future discussions.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours - Steve Roberts

Very classy to disparage a WOD time. I think that really encompasses the spirit of crossfit don't you? I seem to remember some esprit de corps among us crossfitters a while back. Wonder where it went. And yes, after 7 years of crossfit I posted 9:39. In the heat of the African sun and with my uniform (trousers only of course) and boots.

I consider it a check in the 'W' column all things considered :) 7 years ago I probably would have stroked out half-way through the WOD ha-ha.

It was normal to explain the unexplainable with religion hundreds of years ago, but now religion is obsolete. There is science and logic to [correctly] explain things that used to be [incorrectly] explained by religion. Religion is the opium of the proletariat. The working class that was oppressed by the ruling class found it easier to "believe" that they will be rewarded in the afterlife rather than overthrow the ruling class. According to Christians people who do not believe in God or do not practice religion in the same way are going to hell...but every religion believes that. So your chances of going to heaven are really small [if Muslims practice the right religion and Christians are practicing it wrong]. And wouldn't you thing God would be more angry if you believed in a different god than if you believed in no God at all? Many also believe that no god exists. So until some organization provides evidence that their God exists it would be rational to not believe in any god at all, because then you are not wasting time in a church [or any other "house of God"] and you are also not offending God [if you practice the religion "wrongly" which is likely considering more than 100 religious organizations claim that they practice their religion right].

@ kirill, #133

You are misrepresenting and massively generalizing all of religious activity. Every religion does not believe that those who do not follow will go to hell. Religion is not always used by the ruling class to to overthrow the proletariat.

Religion is obsolete?!

Be careful that you are not pushing a fundamentalist view yourself, i.e. that you, through logic and science, posses the absolute truth, and that any other truth is obsolete.

Religion attempts to explain the unexplainable; the enigmas of life. Though you may not belong to an institutionalized religion, you must also grapple with life's paradoxes and mysteries--mysteries that science may never come close to explaining.

Science is the realm of knowledge--you may know all there is to know, but that does not guarantee wisdom. Religion and theological inquiry--not fundamentalism, but an ernest desire to contemplate and to connect with that which is beyond us--that brings wisdom.

Crossfitters, must we really argue over religion and quotes? We are all grown adults right? Let's focus on the thing we have in common, a yearning for elite fitness. I get on here to hopefully see posted times, encouragement, and helpful tips but instead feel like there is arguements half the time. We should know better than anyone that everyone has their differences be that beliefs, political standing, etc. just based on the fact that we have created a scaleable program for everyone with all differences to use. That's all I've got.

Comment #172 - Posted by: Brandon at July 2, 2011 11:11 PM

It took me 9:10.
It's interesting because The Lord Jesus Christ essentially said the exact opposite of Epicurious. God said: "without me you can do nothing" Man can think what ever he wants, but his very breath was given to him by God. Each person will one day give up that breath back to God "with whom we all have to do" It's a good thing God is patient with us and does not judge us immediately, giving us chance after chance to repent and turn to Him.

Comment #185 - Posted by: Aaron (M/25/5'8''/180) at July 3, 2011 8:30 AM

I always understood that you can pray for strength, not pray for things. I am disappointed that in the Christian religion, the religion I was raised in, has its principle tenant that one must be 'saved' in order to be reborn or able to receive God. Its almost as if the church wants its flock to be children, not thinking adults concerned with humanity as a whole, and blindly labeling people as sinners or secular who believe otherwise. It basically tells the follower that any philosopher, scientist, great thinker, composer, artist or person in history who is not expressly Christian is suspect, or is deemed that way by whatever sect or preacher they adhere too. For the fairly uneducated masses, this opens wallets and closes minds. And this is all predicated on the fact that practicing christians of today completely believe that the word of God is directly represented in the King James Bible, or whatever version, and has not been doctored, retranslated, manipulated for political purposes, etc over the last 4000 years. I believe in Christ but less so the human organizations surrounding it.

The quotation was not religious in meaning or intent and it is mystifying as to why so many are trying to impose a religious slant to one of the oldest maxims known in any culture. I doubt there is a society - ancient or modern - that doesn't hold that statement, or a facsimile, in the highest regard. In our own society, it has been both reduced to cliche and elevated to a simple call to action. In our day, Epicurius' eloquence has been distilled by New York ad men to the simple exhortation: Just Do It.

As Rx: 6:18
I did this WOD with the front squats from the rack position as it did not state from the ground. I had to walk about 50 - 75' to the pullup cross bar to do the burpee pullups. The height wasn't too high, about 1' over my reach but the bar was huge and square, so the grip of it was more challenging and different from what I'm used to. If I had to do the burpee pullups on my regular pullup bar it would have been like 200 - 250' away and that would have killed the rhythm and pace of the WOD.
I did the first round unbroken and then decided to just quickly break the FS into 12, 9 + 3, 8 + 4 and all burpee pullups were unbroken and slow and steady.
I'm convinced if the two stations were closer together and I pushed harder I could have easily shaved a full minute or even 90 secs off this time.. I was not in the super push mode.. just do it and go with some pretty good intensity.
Followed with set of 155 lb FS and set of 165 lb FS and a good amount of streatching.

Honestly I rarely post ideas and such but after reading a few I felt the need to post. This quote is actually very simple in its message. If you can do it, do it for yourself. You don't need to pray for help if you're able to do it for yourself. It's about being self sufficient and not limiting yourself. One thing that I constantly read is how people are getting fitter here and are now able to do things that they never thought they could do before. Those previously thought limitations are what this is about. We are all capable of more. We are all capable of doing so much more than we are doing. For me, from my own perspective, I would say that religiously speaking, GOD would be proud of us for always searching and yearning, rather than limiting ourselves to what we thing we are able to do.. we were all blessed to have physical, mental and spiritual gifts and we can do SOOO much with them. WE are the ones being surprised, I would not say that GOD was surprised. There is no room for hatred. And I would think that we should really be open minded. CrossFit is VERY much an open minded place. We are all in search of newer and better ways to get fitter and lead richer lives, without limits.

Do we really think that whoever wins the CrossFit Games will win becuase GOD loved them more than the other competitors? There's nothing wrong with thanking GOD for being blessed and talented, but talent alone will win no Games. Talent is a great place to start, but I'll take determination and hard work over talent any day. Will power is the key, perseverence, dedication, work ethic. Talent is not a bad thing, but not to be used as a crutch. That's a waste in my opinion.

CFWU-2. From home. Shortcut since I slept in.
Pretty disapp w/time. Burpee PU pretty bad. Front squats not too bad. Tried to focus on staying on heels, keeping lumbar tight & elbows up.

I wasn't sure if the WOD was jumping burpee pullups, since I've never done a burpee pullup without a jump. Today I basically did them dead hang.

Anyway..........I love Jesus.

Did this on 7/23 - right before leaving on vacation and wrote my time down so I could post later. I think I did it rx'd - can't remember doing *burpee* pull-ups. My time seems fast, so maybe I did regular pull-ups?
