“Meet Curtis”

You’ll have a chance to meet Curtis, and probably call him wonderful names when you get here!

Run 800m
50 Double Unders

Hand Care

Some people have some ‘damaged’ hands from pullups. Take a look at this article on hand care.

Need to tape you hands for a workout? Here’s the video! If you need to tape, PLEASE, have one of these prepared BEFORE you come to the gym.

Can you touch your nose with your tongue? While squatting?!

  6. and regarding yesterdays post.

    I train crossfit because I love the cooperation. Being in a gym where people aren’t afraid to ask you for help and vise versa helps the whole gym move forward. I love it when someone asks me how to do something, I love helping everyone the best I can. Seeing people succeed makes my day especially if I helped them. Crossfit is one of the best places to do this.

    I train crossfit to be reliable, to be the best I can be. Striving to be a SAR tech I never want to meet a situation where I meet a challenge I cannot tackle, I don’t want to let others down, because thats the difference between life or death.

    1. Jamie, I think you also got a PR on the grunting tonight. You were pretty quiet on this one šŸ˜€

      1. It came out a couple of times, but definitely a PR LOL Great job on the double unders, I can’t wait to get to that level with them!

  10. Warm up times 2 (one arm jumping pullups and one arm wall pushups – left shoulder still hurts and trying to heal it)

    clean practice – did not do the exercise with weights because of my shoulder – worked on rolling left shoulder on Olympic bar instead to increase circulation – thanks for the tip Kevin šŸ™‚

    Run 800m
    50 DUs (PR of 16 on the first and second round and then PR of 21 on the last round! Woohoooooo!)

    Time:36:22 This workout kicked my ass, but I loved it! Thank you to everyone who encouraged me to push through this one šŸ™‚ and sorry Darrell for flipping you the bird during my last round of DUs – I’m not even sure what it was you said that made me do that. Let’s just call it Crossfit momentary insanity šŸ™‚

    Heather, you impressed me to no end tonight šŸ™‚ Your attitude and determination to push through the pain (and gagging!) was top notch. I’m totally blown away by what you did! And, like you said, you did something many would never even consider doing – GOOD ON YOU GIRL!!!

    1. forgot to mention that my Curtis Ps actually consisted of front squats instead of squat cleans…

    2. Are you serious Gabrielle. Just the other day you was working on 9 DU’s…now its 21!!! Wow!

    Feel the burn!

    So who hates Curtis P and who likes him?

    1. Wish I didn’t have to substitute the cleans and push press to see what it would have actually felt like, but I loved Curtis… Is he single? šŸ˜€

  13. WOD as RX’d: 32:03

    I wasn’t prepared well for today’s WOD. For the last four days I’ve been packing and moving into my new house. During that time of course I didn’t eat or sleep well and I really felt it during the WOD. During round 2 and 3 I was out of breath so bad I had to take walking breaks during the runs. I’ll do better when Curtis and I meet again!

    Got a PR on DUs though tonight. 45 in a row in round 2! šŸ˜›

    Great job Stephanie! Nice to meet you.

  15. WOW! That was quite the WOD. I can now say that blood, sweat & tears have been a a part of my CrossFit time. “Curtis P” was challenging to say the least but I did it and didn’t have to sign the wall…..it came close.

    Thsnks Gabrielle, Ed and Kevin for the support and push šŸ™‚

    This was the first time I’ve ever done a WOD with a rip on my hand. I told Kevin I was going to do it RX’d…. until I threw up that first Curtis P. Shifting grips from the deadlift, to the clean, to the push press…. ummm… pain much! So, I did the scaled version. Curtis P and I will meet again when I am healed. Great GREAT work everyone who stepped up to this one! Hats off to those of you who RX’ed it!
    Great work 6:30 crew!
