What's the best way to get my video submitted during the open.
I see miranda O. is hostinf for the 2012 games. I guess she is not competing anymore. I was hoping to see her this year.
But I'm going to do Grace tomorrow anyway, since it's Grace and she deserves everything that's coming to her.
@ckatech - good on ya brother...love me some grace too
Did Cherie Chan say what I thought she said in the grocery store???
In the Update Show video it says Spealler is 185#. Did he really gain 40# since last year?
You guys are nuts doing Grace...unless you go light or something. Save it for the Open!! There is no prize for PR'ing on Grace the day before the Open kicks off.
3 2 1 REST UP FIREBREATHERS!!!!!!!!!!!
Great video on the Chan's! Man, those two are freakin' awesome.
Awesome video on the Chans. Matt & Cherie are some of the nicest people I know.
Open WOD may or may not be done Saturday.
@#8 I saw that too and there is NO WAY he gained 40#. physically impossible
Very cool video, Mr. & Mrs. Chan.
Does anyone know why Pat says Spencer Hendel is "out"? Did he get hurt?
@8, 13: Not having seen the video (blocked where I am in the middle of the mountains in the asshole of the world), I can't comment on how big Mr. Spealler *looks*, but not only is it possible he gained 40# but entirely plausible. You've apparently never checked out the opinions of LiftBigEatBig or John Welbourn (Crossfit Football) on nutrition.
LOTS of paleo + GOMAD + picking up heavy iron = enormous mass in minimal time.
Pedantic rant aside, he said he wanted to gain 10 pounds before this competition and get his big lifts up. I doubt that desire for 10 pounds turned into a 40 pound obsession in the last 12 months...it was probably just a misquote.
Netface- I believe he meant "out" of the region which Ben Smith is in. Spencer is one of the trainers at Reebok Crossfit One, so that puts him in the NE region this year.
really dragging today...
4 Mile Run with 10lbs on my Back prepping for Police Academy...39:13
No mention of Mikko. Is he still in with a shout?
What a quality "commercial"?
Thanks to the Chans' and Rogue for sharing a bit of their wonderful lives; you are truly inspirations.
America (and the world) absolutely needs more of this kind of exposure to great influences. And thank you for "not force-feeding" the heavy commercial/consumer aspect of advertising -- here's to hoping that Rogue can thrive and continue being one of the forerunners in exemplary American businesses.
Guy, thanks for posting the photo I took at the Fittest Games in Austin. Very proud to have my photo on the CrossFit main site. Thanks again.
i agree with #22.. i love Mikko!! Where's the talk about him? also, still waiting for a crossfit games/open app for my iphone. that would be pretty amazing
Did a mix of Sunday's and yesterday's this morning.
bench press 130
Made up portion of Sun and Tues singles
cleans 135-135-135 PR
back squats 225-225-225
no belts no wraps
I've just started CF and have to do it at work during lunch hour. No time during the weekends with a 7mth old at home. How do you do it 5 days on, 2 days off? What WOD should I do when the website posts a Rest Day? Why can't the website post a WOD everyday and let the CF's adjust to their own rest days?
#28, Brian, you'll need to read the Crossfit Training Guide. There's a table called "template macro view" that shows you how to set it up.
Wow, in reference to the mainsite photo, I hope that dude just threw that med ball. Otherwise that thing is coming at him like a missile about to take his head off! haha
hey guys, any predictions for Open WOD Numero Uno!?!? I pesronally think it will be similar to last years format, in the sense that they won't start throwing a lot of Crossfit specific movements (muscle ups, toes to bar, etc) in for a couple weeks... Who knows though! Thoughts?
Good grief, i'm jittery as a school boy on prom night. Post the damn workout already. Lets get this 2012 train rolling. I wanna see some sweat boy!
21 Box Jump 24"
Did 5 rounds
10 wall walks
20 box jumps 24"
20 toes to bar
Oh boy! I wonder if Turkish Get Ups will be in WOD Uno! I better get practicing those!
Did Spealer gain 40lbs? I doubt it. It would not serve him well in the bodyweight movements!!!
Good luck all!
AMRAP in 7 minutes:
The Chan's are good pep's. I stopped in and they let me do a little mobility work while I was waiting for a flight connection to Durango for a Heli-Skiing trip. It was a cool box to check out.
Nice job guys. Go get'm Matt.
