    Thanks Kevin for calling me on my no reps. I always appreciate it, even if it doesn’t always look that way. I was just disappointed that I couldn’t do something that I usually can do. I think I am trying these again on Monday, no time today.

    1. needs more details on this one coach? πŸ™‚ you kill DU, you kill cleans.. that leaves a goat at pistols?

      1. I hate pistols more than HSPU and planks. This whole week has been nothing but goats. Even skill of the week is killing me!

        Looking forward to next week πŸ™‚

      2. Seeing as Coach has inside information I’m thinking next week could be a week of Coaches favs πŸ™‚

  4. WU x 1
    5 min. foam rolling

    Double Unders
    Score: 5 rounds + 11 DU(all DUs unbroken until 9:57 haha. almost had 6 rounds)

    Forgot to do skill of the week ;(

  5. QOD: No shortness of breath going up the stairs, and getting up early in the mornings πŸ˜‰ It’s actually hard to sleep in.

    1. Re-read the question. I guess I dont move residence daily… But fitness aside, Crossfit has me thinking ahead a bit more in terms of lunches/snacks and making sure my schedule allows me to train/rest properly.

  6. QOD
    The obvious vague answer for me would be it made it easier for me to get in shape and stay committed to getting 4 or 5 good hard workouts every week. Specifically, there have been numerous odd jobs that are much easier now. Ie: carrying sod, shoveling top soil, moving my stupid heavy front loading washer, but the one that stands out the most was carrying my winter tires up a ladder to put them on the tire rack in the garage. It was so much easier for me this past spring.

  7. Glad you were able to take two of my worst skills and wrap them into a single WOD!
    So I have 10 minutes to get 15 double unders? As always should be an interesting 4:15!

  8. Warmup and foam rolling

    WOD with 35lbs and pistols holding onto a bar – 6 + 2 KB cleans

    What a strange WOD. Felt a different type of tired. Loved the 8:30 class!

  9. wu as posted
    WOD, 53 KB
    45 singles
    6 rounds and 1 pistol

    Actually did my first set as DU’s, first time in a WOD. then i switched to singles as the DU’s were swallowing up too much time.
    still nursing the tight lower back and pistols are not the smartest things to do when you cannot bend.

  10. Warmup and foam rolling.
    WOD with 25 lbs. and pistols from bench – skiipping singles
    5 rounds plus 3 KB cleans
    QOD Life is much easier with Crossfit. Mowing lawns, carrying wood, having more energy. Wait a minute – maybe it was easier when I read a book and Frank did all that other stuff.

    1. Hahaha! I agree…I can’t use the excuse that something (like our coach or a bag of mulch) is too heavy. Dave simply says…can’t you clean 125lbs or can’t you deadlift 200lbs? Damn.

      1. But on the other hand, shoveling is much more fun now. We turn it into a WOD and try to beat our neighbor and his snowblower.

  11. QOD: My sister asked me the same question about a year in and I honestly couldn’t think of anything in particular. Later I realized that I was doing soooo much more (stairs, carrying groceries, lifting everything including me πŸ™‚ …) without even thinking about it!! So yeah Heather W. I agree – life is much easier (and more fun!)

  12. QOD:
    The way I approach things now with an attitude of “ok, I can do this” takes a lot of stress out of life and certainly makes things easier. I feel I have a lot more energy to get those daily things done AND still chauffeur and play with 3 growing boys.
    Some things like cleaning out a garage or helping someone move I don’t realise until afterwards that it was MUCH easier to tackle! Now THAT’s functional fitness!

  13. QOD: It’s made eating healthy easier. I have way more energy to prepare meals in the evenings and cooking marathons on the weekends. I know now what I should be putting in my body, no more questioning and staring at labels…

QOD: I work for a renovations company so a lot of our work requires moving heavy materials (bundles of shingles, stacks of lumber, cement bags) and as i am the new guy i get the pleasure of doing a lot of the heavy lifting myself which crossfit has made things a lot easier on me. I haven’t been back for long but i can feel things getting easier already πŸ˜€
