now that is a badass picture!!!!!
Awesome Steve, gives a new meaning to the chains of life.
Picture above: that is what cross-fitters do for their "rest day".
thats the coolest picture I've seen in a while. Instant desktop background!
Wow, that guy is giving the finger to the Bench Press! Next up, Iron Cross with chains.
one of the best generals i had the pleasure of surfing under!!
that's a funny way to rest, the crossfit way. 21-15-9. rest. No Don't rest. Not ever. Nope. Plenty time to rest when u r dead.
One of the coolest pics I've seen in a while!
Aw, they didn't use the pic w/ the rings of barbed wire.
Interesting to see that Hasselbeck started Crossfit. Was just saying the other day how he looks like a re-born quarterback after struggling for a bit (for his level at least, a while he was a top 5 QB in the league). He's got the Titans looking like a team you don't want to mess with.
Incredible planche strength required ay? Take tomorrow off...
Steve Gephart has a Mr. T complex!
Thanks for sharing the video from Gen. McChrystal, very inspiring!
Thank you for the Stanley McChrystal video. It's a great talk on leadership from one of our better generals who, sadly enough, was canned for speaking the truth.
Hey guys. So I have been a Crossfitter for some time now, and am absolutely in love with the training program and the abilities it has given me to succeed in my military career. However, during a rope workout this morning, and the failure to be able to walk on my hands. I have realized that I do not have the bodyweight control that I would like .. not even close. I was wondering if anyone has any tips on training to walk on your hands, body weight control and the building of stabilizer muscles .. or anyone who is just looking for someone to talk Crossfit with! Figured I would reach out to the community that knows it best.
Also, I just started a Paleo diet yesterday .. anyone who has any tips on how to keep on it/eat it correctly or any good recipes feel free to email me anytime!
I am using this pic as the gym computer background.
No time for rest day.....Sick picure
CF friends..Hit me up on Skype
Anybody know what program do they use for the timer on the plasma screen in the background in the Hasselback video? Something like that would work in my home gym and would love to save the expense of buying a dedicated timer
Where on the main site is there a listing or calendar of upcoming competitions in my area (Florida)? Thanks for your help.
is that dude a cop? he looks like a cop
Question for you guys: the Crossfit diet...those percentages. Are they percentages based on grams? Or what? Thanks.
Used yesterdays wod as a guide
Changes as follow
5 rds for time
20 step ups with 20# dbs, two block height, about 17"
30 tire flips, about 40 meters
40 meter 40# dbs farmer walk
The TED speech on leadership by General Stanley McChrystal was great. I passed it on to my son who is in his first year at the Naval Academy.
As a side note, my son tells me that Crossfit is everywhere at the Academy!

There are lots of good video's in the journal on how to train gymnastic movements. As for Paleo diet, I like this site: http://www.thefoodee.com
Good luck bro.....
That's an interesting photo, but that particular use of chains perplexes me, unless it's in lieu of a weighted vest. My understanding of chains is that by allowing them to accumulate on the floor, their weight is lessened. When they are thus lifted from the floor,the load increases, forcing the athlete to increase his power at a point when it usually decreases.
I'd love to hear the athletes thoughts/reasoning behind this particular use of chains.
So, I just started crossfit about 3 weeks ago, I do it at a regular gym, and by myself, my times are almost double, I love kicking my own butt, does anyone know about what supplements are good for this type of training? I stay sore for days...lol
Did yesterday's nutso carry heavy stuff workout. info there. woah.
Does anyone know the load strength of those rings?
I think he's on the cusp with that kind of weight.
Good to be aware and be safe...check your equipment out before attempting a movement such as that one using a very heavy load...
Safety never takes a day off folks!
or you could just wear a weighted vest...
VRT does require the resistance to be reduced and applied throughout the rom of the lift (looks like he's at the bottom with no reduction in resistance)...hopefully the chains are used for additional weight in this pic...otherwise, I will assume he also wears them out in public to make himself look cool there, too. Sweet pic tho...definitely will spark the interest of those who don't know better
