Go ladies!

LOL at #2 and #4. There are always way more people anticipating people being offended than are actually offended every time HQ posts something like this.

A mirror, a mirror, my kingdom for a mirror

Dammit, she blinked.

OMG!!! I am so offended!! What is HQ thinking?!?!?! Some people's kids are on this site!! Those ladies should be facing the camera!

Awesome pic!

Keep stories like "Blind Athlete" coming. Among the most inspiring pieces I've seen. That gal defines courage and her coach is equally impressive.

So is the real cameraman on the other side?

Clearly this is Barbell for Backs, I want the Barbell for Boobs pic!!

Great pic, we had a BFB event today at our Box too!

10kb lunge
10kb snatch
10kb dl
10kb swing
10kb Russ twist

I'm calling it Kill Bill v1.0

Comment #16 - Posted by: Wade at October 26, 2013 2:37 AM

Barbells for Booobs, great awareness and support ladies.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Anthony at October 26, 2013 3:17 AM

#10 I couldn't agree more and thank you for the laugh this early Saturday morning!

Comment #18 - Posted by: NS at October 26, 2013 3:37 AM

#13 LOL...not a great visual. We as a CF community shouldn't have to apologize for expressing your true feelings. If someone is offended...Oh well!!! Again it shows how far we have come in trying to make EVERYONE feel comfortable.

Again - Thanks for the great laugh this morning!

Comment #19 - Posted by: Korebodyworkz at October 26, 2013 4:05 AM

The tu-tu up front is great. Might make hang power-cleans difficult...

Congratulations to the athletes competing today at the cf invitational. And I salute cf for no geoblocking!

Comment #25 - Posted by: Chris at October 26, 2013 10:19 AM

Great pic. Stoked for a day off - this 15 min AMRAPs are killing me. Going to take a light run 3 mi run to keep everything loose.

30 days in to self-teaching myself CrossFit and loving it. Wife has already noticed and complimented changes in my body. I will likely end up joining a box after another month of dedication, and also getting more time and funds to do so.

Thanks everyone for your inspiration!

7 rounds + 2 push press
