    Congrats on your first class Denis!! Nice meeting you!!

      Indeed a great post! Being a small guy, I have struggled with trying to keep my weight up to what I thought was ideal and honestly to what I thought looked good in the mirror. But I too have lost weight in the 3 months with u all (10-12lbs) and would consider the term “Crossfit skinny” which I do not like because i was already quite skinny but I only blame myself for not eating enough in the run of a day, poor sleeping habits, etc . But then again I feel great though know I have lots to work on!!! Thanks Kevin for posting this and the motivation to do things different.

        Great article.

        I am in the same boat as Johnny. Word for word, except I have good sleeping habits. Here’s to improving and changing the crossfit twigs look.

        You’re not alone Johnny. Trying to gain muscle mass is a constant battle for me. A while ago I tried to eat as much food (lean and healthy) as I could possibly stomach for 2 weeks. I felt good and strong in the gym, but the scale told me I lost 2 pounds. WTF. LOL

        I don’t worry about it anymore. As long as I feel good in the gym, I’m ok.

      Great article.

      My favorite part:

      “Don’t blame others for inconsistency, lack of motivation, lack of discipline, and unsuccessful trials. Sometimes you have to take a hard long look at the mirror and ask,”Do I Want To Be Better?” The day you answer yes is the day you can throw that F*CKING mirror away and completely change your life.”

    WU x 2

    I did not do the WOD this morning, opting instead to work on my Squat Clean & Jerks to prep. for Saturday. It went something like this:

    Squat Clean & Split Jerk:
    35# x 2
    55# x 2
    75# x 1
    85# x 2
    100# x 3…form was starting to go
    110# – Failed 1st attempt, Success at 2nd attempt, Failed next 2 attempts

    This was a 10# PR for me on both the Clean & the Jerk, so really happy with this. Disappointed to end the morning on a failed attempt, but now I know I can do this weight.

    Thanks for all of your coaching this morning Marc, and a big happy B-Day…you didn’t share that with us this morning.

    Kudoo’s to Pat on your clean & jerks this morning…you are more than ready for Saturday.
