    Thank you Amanda, can’t wait for the next one!

    $al- You get three attempts at each lift to hit your max, so most recommend using your 1st at just below your previous max, 2nd at previous max, and 3rd attempt for going for a new max.

    I guess I don’t understand CFT. Do I get to do as many reps as I can until I max out, or do I get one shot at each and that’s it? I just tried the one shot method this time:
    BS 250#
    SP 155#
    DL 315#
    T 720#
    I know I can do better, and I will.

    bs: 225 (-50)
    sp: 125 (0)
    dl: 325 (+5) some rounding at the top, but Andrew said it was ok, so I’ll take it.

    I am not the only Crossfit yogi out there!

    It was a little frustrating to hear a lot of talk about gaining more flexibility to improve performance and how as athletes we should stretch in the Level 1 cert this weekend, yet not one stretch was demo-ed, offered, given, shown or discussed. If someone needed to address hamstring flexibility in a squat, not one trainer ever offered how to work with that (that i heard), they would just say, “squat more.” Oh well…….

    I ditto Andrew! Let’s do it πŸ™‚ … yay Brian, I’m glad you liked it!!

    all right, I’ll say it. It’s been on my mind this weekend. What’s the possibility of doing affiliate challenges every four to six months?

    We have quite a few affiliates locally and it seems like a great opportunity to build some community.

    What’s the first impediment? Let’s tear it down.

    Shay – HELL YEAH!!!

    Pilot Article – as of 12pm, 8 people stopped by my office to ask/inquire about CF. Power of marketing πŸ˜‰ love it!

    Man, i have to say that I am bothered by the fact that the lady from Lifestyles said that the work outs would be too intense for most of her clients. That’s the 1/3 of the equation! Anyone can watch TV while using an eliptical, but you can’t with most of the CF wods.

    Also, the idea that we are only working 10-15 minutes isn’t accurate if one includes the warm up and cool down periods. (I was just thinking to myself this am that I need to be sure to incorporate more cool down, ppost wod stretching and lightweight mechanics.)
    At least they didn’t say many bad things.

    Hell yeah Shay!!!!! Abi, welcome to the #1 work distractor πŸ™‚ … ahh the Total, we’ll see how this goes!! Oh and had a blast at the affiliate event at Compound this weekend. We gotta host one at CFVB soon or at least a fun Hooverball tournament?? Finally! If y’all didn’t see the video of CFVB on facebook yet for GO Urban, go watch it. and now I’m done.

    From today’s Virginia Pilot in the “Fitness” Section, “Crossfit is geared toward people who are really driven and those who get really really bored easily.” OUR OWN THOMI GILL! Great article called “Crossfit has no downtime!” (first time poster, long time reader)

  2. Figures I would miss the total again!! Can’t make it today, and my knee is WRECKED and I am sore as hell. Is that Friday or Saturday’s WOD sneaking up on me?

    Cindy and I are home. What a weekend! Have I mentioned I love Crossfit?!

    It was a wicked hot and hard weekend (that’s what he said.) Cindy and I did Fran as rx’d for the first time, got a little sunburned and learned a ton.

    Rest day today. We miss you all.
