Reminder of Tree-Go on Saturday at noon with CrossFit Bathurst. A few people have put their names on the board. If you want to go, sign up at the gym.

5 rounds of:
15 Kettlebell Swings
10 Wall Balls
5 Burpees

So why do you post your results on this site? You keep a journal already, so why bother? I know I have my own reasons, but I’d like to hear yours. Also, how can we encourage others to start posting?

Jamie first workout was a sweaty one!

Jamie's first workout was a sweaty one!

    Dave and I are booked for the 6:30 class on Friday, and would rather switch to 5:30. So if anyone gives up a 5:30 slot, we would love to have it. πŸ™‚

    and to up the anti – we’ll even throw in 10 burpees…

    Great to see you back Lance!

    Good workout this morning. Helped loosen up the legs a little bit. They’re still pretty sore though.

    Used a 35# KB and 20# med ball.

    5:35

  3. Old habits die hard, I guess. I keep a detailed training journal, but posting here is my back up for those times I don’t have (or can’t find) my book. It’s my virtual journal.

    Thanks Kevin πŸ™‚

    Im in the same camp as Jeannette. I had my journal stolen back in March and lost 3 months of work outs. Trust me it sucks when you get to the gym and have no idea what your higher end weights are supposed to be. So I went on the site and grabbed every single result and reproduced my journal from Jan 2 onward. Take that car thieves!! Posting online is also the ultimate in accountability because your results are there for everyone to see…

  5. Here’s a comment… I didn’t write down my WOD result this morning πŸ™ Any chance you remember Kevin? It was 7 something.

    Advanced Warmup x 3

    Strength: Shoulder Press
    5-5-5-5-5
    45-65-75-75-75

    WOD: 5 rounds of

    15 KBS (35#)
    10 wall balls (20#)
    5 burpees

    Time: 7:43 (?)

  6. I post for a few reasons…

    1 – To keep track of my progress. I can easily search for a particular workout and see what I posted.

    2 – To compare with others. Not to compete, but for motivation. It’s a way to set goals. If one can do a workout rx’e, I’ll push myself until I can do it rx’d too.

    3 – I’m an internet geek and I’m constantly posting stuff on a bunch of websites (not just crossfit).

    I cancelled for saturday wod if someone one my spot go reserve NOW. I think “putting sod on 4000sqft for time” will be enough. Especially that I am still walking like a robot today!!
    I post for all the same reasons everyone listed. But in my case, I like everyone else post. Because you could see that others people improve and work hard (whatever improvement that could be). This motivate me to improve and work hard as well. It’s always fun to read that someone did a new PR, a first pull up or a wod as rx’d. πŸ™‚

    I like to raad the other posts. A lot of humour. There is also a lot of support from others in posting. So I post to be part of that great network.

  9. Warm-Up – 3 Rounds of:
    Things I find really hard and usually avoid…
    7 Pull-Ups
    5 Ring Dips
    10 Knees to Elbows

    Front Squat (5)-3-3-3-3-1-3 reps
    (45)-95-115-135-145-155-135

    I didn’t like what my back was doing at 155# so I racked it after the first rep. Besides that, these felt pretty good.

  10. Gillyon

    CW x 3
    Strength: 5 sets of 5
    Back Squat: 45-65-70-75-80 (went very low)
    WOD:
    5 rounds of:
    15 Kettlebell Swings
    10 Wall Balls
    5 Burpees

    Time: 7:12
    (Picking up that KB after the first round felt terrible)

    I post for many of the reasons listed above. I also post and constantly check the comments to stay connected. I miss working out with the morning crew..but through the online comments I can still be apart of their PRs.

    ps. And most of them make me giggle. πŸ™‚

    I first started posting because you told me to and I always do what I’m told. Then, like everyone else said, it’s a kind of support network and a way to be proud of your efforts. I like reading other people’s comments too and congratulating them on their great work.

    Also, I forgot to say, “Welcome Jamie” yesterday. Good job on your first WOD!

    πŸ™‚

    1. elissa

      I post also because it keeps me connected to how the other people are doing, to encourage, for encouragement and it makes me feel accountable also! it’s really exciting to post when I feel like I gave it my all πŸ™‚

    Well it’s time for my first real post…

    I just ran my first 5k! Time: 33min. The key words are “I ran”. Crossfit and the diet change must be working. I’ve tried 5k before but it always involved a lot of walking. Tonight I ran to the positive beat of “I can”.

    My first Fundamentals class was August 28th and my first WOD was September 9th. So I’m new but already see an improvement in myself.

    As for the comments… I’ve been creeping you guys for awhile… πŸ˜‰

    Reading all of your posts prior to joining Crossfit was motivating. It was great to see there are people out there just like me and it gave me a sense of what to expect when I decided to join. I was also great to have Pierre helping persuade me to sign up. Thanks Pierre!

    So… keep posting! You might inspire someone else to become a Crossfitter!

  13. Pierre

    We have great comments here and most important great people here at CF Moncton!!

    Jeff – I am really happy you join and I am more than happy that you like it!! I know I was probably annoying sometimes during lunch break with my Crossfit conversation, but it paid off! πŸ˜€

    As for Kevin’s question, it is all of the above + a couple things. I post for my own records. If I ever loose my journal (or if somebody steals it :)), I will have all my stats here on the site. Seeing everybody’s posts help me push harder on the WOD when it is my turn to do it. And it is always good to congrats somebody on the site for the PRs.

    One day, I would like to have everybody’s answer on the question below:

    ”What is you Crossfit goal for the end of 2009???”

    If everybody knows each others goal, it would be a good way to make sure you are accountable for that goal and we can all help each other out reaching it.

    Like others have already stated, I post for because its an engaging community to be a part of. Reading the accomplishments of others is extremely motivating. There are some AWESOME feats accomplished by the highly motivated members at CF Moncton… its amazing to read what people can accomplish when “I can’t” is removed from their dictionary.

    CF brings things to an intense level, the WOD is the big bad animal and by nature it sets a common ground within the gym… no matter your fitness level, simply walking through the door and “doing battle” with the WOD gives everyone a reason to celebrate and walk a little taller when its all said and done. So having said this… I also post because I feel as though I deserve it / earned the right to do so.

    Way to go crew… keep posting because we ALL have a vested interest in each others success!! πŸ™‚

    PS Love the Question Pierre… Kev you need to set that post up!!!

  15. Rob

    CFWU x 3
    Strength: Push Press
    5-5-5-5-5
    45-95-110-130-140 (tks for the spot Tyler)

    WOD: 5 rounds of
    15 KBS (35#)
    10 wall balls (20#)
    5 burpees

    Time: 5:32 πŸ™‚ Tks Tim for warming up my KBell, you were right, it was the “lucky” one.

    Great push tonight everyone. Also way to go Jamie, you did awesome, real strong!

  16. Kevin

    I have a few reasons why I post, but the main one is accountability. I would not feel like a great trainer if I didn’t walk the walk. Could you imagine a trainer telling you all this advice, what exercises to do, and not do any of it themselves?

    They exist.

    CrossFit is something I truly believe in. I’ve never had a gym membership, anywhere, before CrossFit. Actually, I’ve never even had a relationship longer than I’ve been doing CrossFit, so if I’ve stuck with it for this long, it must be good!

    It is my hope that people at CrossFit Moncton feel welcomed, but it’s not just me that makes it welcoming. It’s all of you! You are what makes CrossFit Moncton such a fantastic place to train, see friends and make new ones.

    So keep those comments rolling in!
