"Some guys in my unit did CrossFit for Hope on June 9th here at FOB Pasab, Afghanistan. It was brutally hot. We wanted to show the kids that we were thinking of them, even on the front lines."

Excellent workout doing it right now
I got this ;)
I came across CF a few days ago as I had been doing a mainly weights workout & was looking for something for all round fitness. Your CF system sounds just what I've been looking for. I've been weight training with some cardio since December last year & haven't been this fit since I did my Navy recruit training at age 18.I am now 51. Looking forward to giving CF a go. Might begin tonight with one of your earlier in the week workouts since today's a rest day without a WOD. Thanks for a great site & workout program. I'll let you know how I go, if I survive...

My BN was out of former fob Wilson my last tour, great work guys, rc south WODs a whole new level, happy hunting this fighting season
He is doing Hope with a reflective belt. Nice!
I can't say I've ever heard the National Mall called the "Washington Mall". Maybe the National Mall in Washington, DC.
God bless you and people like you Captain Shulz; working out in a place where you can catch a round and you guys are thinking of the kids. This is why I love CrossFit
Troopers thinking of the kids, awesome photo and sentiment gents, thanks!
Great video, thank you for sharing with the community. My daughter is in her 6th week of ISR and just did a Roll/Float sequence with full winter clothes and shoes on...if you have kids, the question is, why wouldn't you enroll them in ISR...
Awesome video..great initiative!....
Clearly there's a high risk of getting run over by a Bradley in that tent - thank goodness he has that glow belt on!
Hi just wanted to say that I'm new to crossfit and I'm loving it, but mostly I'd like to say thanks to CPT Schulz and his fellow soilders for the great work their doing over there it's very much appreciated.
@Mel - I live in DC, so I'm a little familiar with the area and lingo.
I have just found out about CF witch to me seems amazing but I don't know if I should just jump start into it cos my gymnastics isent gd or my olimpic lifts what do you guys/ girls recommend ?
Looking great in RC-S, Fury! Airborne!
LOVE THE PIC! This guy gets it. HOPE is bigger than you, bigger than CrossFit, bigger than anything tangible, it is about giving hope to the hopeless.
Did make-up WOD "Cindy" from Sunday, 120610.
AMRAP in 20 min. of:
15 complete rounds + 2 pull-ups.
Carole and Kevin-made up yesterday's workout this morning. Results posted there.
God bless our soldiers! . . . FOB Pasab was my soldier son's FOB during his recent deployment to Afghanistan . . . HOOAH! . . .
Hiy every one Iv been looking at cross fit for some time and I thinking of doing it. Every thing about just looks amazing :-D propper looking forwoed to the nest work out but should I just jump in ore do you traine befour you do CF sorry for the daft questions but any feed back would be a big help thanks p.s the pic is amazing
Best advice is to be smart about what you are doing. Much of Xfit is about pushing yourself harder than you thought was possible. But be safe and pay attention to technique. Scale the WOD if necessary. Have a partner. Watch the instructional videos on this site. Etc. You can probably accomplish a lot on your own, but would likely benefit from some direct input, coaching. Be inspired by the performances of others, but measure your gains against yourself.
yesterday's workout with 2000m, 1000m, 500m rows instead of runs.
awful.... and awfully sore shoulders. whew!
I jumped in(a month ago) and have loved every workout(so far :)). I scale back some of the workout. Especially the Olympic lifts cause I haven't done those before. I do a weight that I know I can work on the form and not hurt myself. I watch the videos and the WOD demos help sometimes as well. Eventually I will make it to a certification class or the local Crossfit affiliate(when I can afford). I will try and make it to an affiliate soon so my Olympic lifts will improve quickly. I hope this helps.
CFE "Short Tosh"
3 x Run 100M (Rest 100M time)/Run 200M (Rest 200M time)/Run 400M (Rest 400M time).
Total elapsed time 17:03. Can't escape the feeling that this should be sub-15.
Much of Xfit is about pushing yourself harder than you thought possible. But be smart and use common sense. If necessary, scale the WODs. Technique is very important. Watch the instructional videos. Have a partner who can give you feedback or seek the input of a.coach. Be inspired by others, but measure your gains against yourself.
