I like the guy in the back about to nail one of them with the football.

Comment #2 - Posted by: Bill at November 21, 2011 5:12 PM

Love the pic!

The best part is the guy in the background that's about to throw a football at them.

That's what friends are for!

I grew up in OP, KS. Great to see you!

So sick of the politics here.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Jon Gray at November 21, 2011 6:06 PM

Well written article on Cali from a small business standpoint.

Rob Hole, great home gym. I loved seeing the Iron Major CF shirt. I started CrossFit with them in 2009.

Great home gym, love the dry erase on the garage doors, rope.

What drinks are the pepsi vending machine in your neighbors driveway?

Sweeeet home gym! One day......One day!

I'm taking Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday off, it's thanksgiving and it's also important to have a break every 8 weeks or so, I thought I might kill two birds with one stone

Im smoked, happy that the rest day has arrived. On another note I enjoyed reading today's article on the California business environment.

Great article! Could not agree more.

Comment #12 - Posted by: Gar at November 21, 2011 8:06 PM

Wow. "Eveline" is freaking amazing. Great to compare with "Miss Brill" by Mansfield. Completely different and completely the same.

Rob Hole both introduced me and inspired me with CrossFit. Back in 2005, he invited me over for a CrossFit WOD 'Death by Burpees' and I have been hoked ever since. Since then, it has been my dream to introduce and inspire others about the power and benefits of CrossFit. Thanks to Rob, I am living my dream at CrossFit Matters!

Thank you Rob for being a friend, mentor and fellow CrossFitter!

I feel sorry for any business operating in Cali - all these regulations, high taxes, and litigation simply drive business elsewhere. Maybe, someday, they'll wake up and realize they've poisoned the business environment beyond repair

#6 Jon.......that wasn't a political article. You must feel pressure when the terrm liberal denotes a bad thing from an economic standpoint. Facts are facts, dude

Great home gym! Great article on business in Cali. Sad but true.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Ron at November 21, 2011 9:49 PM

Rob, I dig your garage gym. It's legit.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Pat Sherwood at November 21, 2011 10:04 PM

Congrats on the post Ross!

I also love the guy with the football. I see material for another episode of Ridiculousness in the making!

Awesome picture!

Looking for some diet advice on this rest day.

I don't love most veggies however, I'm always trying to get more of them into my diet. My question is: Are yellow and green peppers decent additions to my diet?

I can stand broccoli and asparagus but, need a change of pace. I'm also pretty limited on budget. Any informed advice is appreciated.

Comment #22 - Posted by: Matty at November 22, 2011 6:57 AM

no equipment for rest today, so subbed this instead:

warmup: ROM drills, squat therapy, pickle ticklers, pigeon fingers-- 3 times each

WOD: 5 rounds for time

15 calf raises of a very managable weight
10 pushups
5 zombie walks (very managable distance)

Did all Rx'd 23:35, not bad. Felt good today. Pushups were chest to floor, arms fully extended. Zombie walks were tough, burned my hips up. Calf raises were dorsiflexion to plantarflexion each time, heels to floor bitches-- only way to go!!

Sick WOD, I'm spent!

"Michael", details there.

Comment #24 - Posted by: bingo at November 22, 2011 9:32 AM

CF works. There are not a lot of products that deliver what they claim in this life. Thank you CF.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Dennis at November 22, 2011 12:36 PM

Nice home gym, Rob. I laughed out loud at the old pullup bar/closet rack. I can't fit any of my stuff in "our" closet either!

Comment #26 - Posted by: BobC at November 22, 2011 1:23 PM

Love the site and today's article. Politicans don't seem to think through the concept that you can make state and federal rules and business can move to another state or country.

Crossfit Mobile, AL? Ive worked out there during a business trip. Really great people there!

Rob, great home gym! The man's an inspiration!

Comment #31 - Posted by: Justin Tyler at November 23, 2011 6:59 PM

Yup CrossFit Mobile!! Thanks for putting our pic up!

Comment #32 - Posted by: Ross Hebert at November 23, 2011 10:32 PM

I like the fact that some people are trying to get Crossfit into the schools. Grant programs, you got my vote!

Comment #33 - Posted by: Dan S. at November 25, 2011 2:33 PM

Sweet home gym.
