10 reasons why CrossFit is better than a Globo Gym

10. We don’t need a sign that says “No cellphones allowed.” (you know what gym I’m talking about) Our people are DOIN’ WORK every minute they are in the gym.

9. You can workout barefoot and close to naked.

8. Puking during a workout is respected and even admired.

7. You can discuss your last Paleo bowel movement with your peers as you stretch out…and they’re actually interested.

6. If you fart mid-WOD, no one can hear you because the music is too loud.

5. We use our mirrors to tally our reps and write the WOD down.

4. You can get mad at the barbell…fo’ REAL…and slam it on the ground from overhead.

3. There is no weirdo muscle dude tryin’ to kick it to you on the treadmill next door.  

2. You don’t need to be ashamed of the burn you get just above your butt-cheeks after doing ab-mat sit-ups, or if you pee a little during your box jumps, double unders, or jumping pull-ups….you actually announce this to a crowd of 20. 

1. Where else can you discuss, hip thrust, snatch, jerk, doing girls like FRAN, CINDY and DIANE, cleaning your balls, and sharing a box without making people blush? 

Thank you to Shorline CrossFit for a great blog.


Ode to Luke

Coach Luke and I did a workout similar to this about 2 months ago and Luke repeatedly referred to that w.o.d. as “The hardest M F’n W.O.D. EVER!”. So we decided to treat our students to the same lesson in mental toughness as we did.

3 Rounds: 1 minute Jump Rope, 1 minute Plank

1 Round for Time
500 Meter Row
25 Push Press (95#, 65#)
50 Burpees
800 Meter Run
50 Burpees
25 Push Press
500 Meter R0w

Tabata Goin' Old School

Inch Worms
High Knees
Pole Stretch

Nothin’ says Grandma’s home cooked Turkey Day Dinner like Tabata
8 Rounds of 20 seconds of work, with 10 seconds rest.

And for that extra slice of pie you had

1,000 Meter Row as fast as you can

The Day After…

You have every excuse in the book. You ate every single serving of food on your plate. Now you have a job to do. After your mother in law makes you clean out her garage. Go for a hike, walk or run. Play a sport. Tennis, Golf or Football. If your a good kid you might even ask your In laws if they want to go for a walk with you. Take your brother to the park and show him that turn around jumper you still have. Plain and simple have fun today. Get outside and enjoy your life and your family. If you don’t have a family you can join mine for a game of Frisbee Golf. Check out this video below but please don’t take it as serious as this guy does.
