Kettlebell swings, 1.5 pood
Knees to elbows
Strength: Deadlift 5RM @ 325# (PR)
Gavin-congratulations on the deadlift PR. Really nice numbers on those front squats too!
Kevin, thanks. I'm away for a week next week, no access to a barbell or weights, so it will be all bodyweightfitness stuff. Trying to stay on track with strength training this week.
Dale and team,
Excellent article. Lucid, simple and clear. I'm not so sure everyone realizes how vital your role is, especially as the company grows & grows (those that have been in business long enough do). Your team is the community's "protective service detail", the "bodyguards of the brand".
Thank you for what you do.
today for me real rest day. I get up in the morning and feel a little bit illness will come if I workout today! So now I lie in my bed with tea and so on... Hope tomorrow is all away and I will get no influ!
In 18 days is my marathon and I want to run real fast for the CrossFit Community!
Best regards and greetings from cold east germany
No rest for me, going to spend tonight working on my snatch and clean and jerk technique. Maybe some medium intensity cardio but mostly olympic lift technique drills.
I'm confused by the today's article. I read this section:
'Don’t use CrossFit as a category of goods or services; that earns an almost automatic lawsuit because it threatens the mark in two ways: as both infringement and genericide. For example, there is no such thing as “CrossFit equipment.” This equipment has always been sold categorically as “fitness equipment,” “gym equipment” or the like.'
However Rogue equipment has an entire section of their site titled "Crossfit Equipment." Isn't that what the article instructs us NOT to do?
@David, the odds are high that CF HQ have given Rogue permission to do so. It isn't like nobody at HQ knows about the website, right?
Also, notice that it isn't "CrossFit equipment" but rather "Equipment for CrossFit". Two very different things.
I would add that adding the "TM" sign next to Crossfit when it is used out of context helps. IP attorneys go a little nuts over this - look what happened to "kleenex" and "Xerox". Both brands lost a lot of power.
@Gavin - you're right, it does call it "Equipment for Crossfit" - I was looking at the domain name, which is "crossfit-equipment."
I guess ultimately my question would be what would be considered "equipment for crossfit", and would be "fitness equipment"? Could I sell barbells, bumper plates, jump ropes, etc and label them as equipment for crossfit? Given crossfit booming popularity, my site would pop up a lot in searches with those keywords.
I have no intent of starting any sort of online business, I'm just exercising my mind today.
Lessons learned from the fantastic article by Dale Saran:
1. The name "CrossFit" is owned by somebody, so a person needs permission to use it.
2. Don't assume, no matter how good your intentions are, that your independent activities labeled as "CrossFit" in any way, shape, or form are not hurting the brand, regardless of the fervor behind your activities in your community of like-minded people.
3. If you aren't allowed to use the name, don't be all stealing it and sh*t. Come up with your OWN sh*t.
“CrossFit” defines a very specific fitness program - "CrossFit: Defending the Name" by Dale Saran
This seems at odds with 'creative and continuously varied'; 'deliberately broad, general, and inclusive'; 'tremendously varied, if not randomized', which is how the CF Training Guide describes the program.
I completely understand Glassmans's desire for protecting the CF brand, it makes him very wealthy. But the very idea of being open source, non-specialized, continuously varied is what makes CF non-specific. The more broad and general you desire your fitness to be (which is what CF claims is it's purpose), the less specific your training program must be. That is why you will never see CF winning a judgement against someone selling a fitness program that uses 'constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement', and 'creative, randomized' modalities, to attain a 'broad, general, and inclusive fitness'. Why? Because CF was far from the first player in that game. What you will see is CF defending the brand, the name. They want people to first think of CrossFit when they see a 'constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement' type of workout prescription, even though there are numerous other programs out there that encourage the same. But CF was the first to package it this well, to see such rapid growth, to define it/measure it in such a way that the user pushes himself every rep, every step, as if he is competing in the Games. It's intoxicating. It's why I am a fan. It's why GG is making money hand over fist. The market was ready. I only wish I had packaged it and sold it under a catchy name, it was genius.
Had a rest day yesterday when the front squats came up, didn't want to load up on a bad foot.
Felt a little better today so I did Jackie (1st time)! OMG that looked easier on paper! :O
Beginner Pull-ups and row was not on a C2 though (only 4 weeks in CF)
Still trying and loving it :D
@David- you would still need to get permission/license to use "CrossFit" in your "equipment for CrossFit". It would be the same as "Accessories for Apple" or "equipment or Microsoft". If there was a website that was using those tag lines as its advertising w/out Apple's or MSFT's permission or any license use, then it would definitely here from an attorney or law firm.
