You know you’re a CrossFitter when…

…you don’t own a tractor but you own tractor tires.
…helping people move turns into a metcon WOD.
…every time you go to Home Depot, you are looking for the exercise potential of equipment rather than stuff for your home.
…you go to buy a swiss ball, and the salesperson goes into their spiel about the comfortable feel of the rubber and how easy it is on your back for doing crunches, and you interrupt them and ask, “Ya…but how much will it weigh when I fill it full of sand?”
…when you pick your cubicle at work because of it’s hand-stand practice potential.
…when you get married, you register at Rogue Fitness.
…your steering wheel and radio controls are covered in chalk…
…when you think it’s cool your wife/gf is purposefully scraping her hands with a cheese-grater implement.
…when you laugh at almost all the exercises normal people say they do at the gym.
…when you wake up at 5am to do an 8 minute workout.
…you can tell a woman she has a great snatch and not get slapped.
…the first Japanese word that comes into your mind is Tabata
…you constantly drag your kids to the playground then challenge them to various monkey bar races.
…a holiday is just an opportunity to get that glamourous handstand photo backdrop
…your shins have more scrapes than a twelve year old boy.
…CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe.
…the words Snatch and Jerk have lost there comedic value, but farting while deadlifting has not.
…pain is a relative term.
…you have posted pictures of yourself working out on Facebook.
…you have an appreciation for the sweat angels you leave on the floor.
…you consider other CrossFitters family.
…you start doing common household tasks “for time”
…you can go home and tell your wife you did Jackie, Helen, Fran etc.. this afternoon and not get in trouble.
…you’re a man and own knee socks.

    Strength: Back squats
    5x 95-105-115-125. Only 40# off my PR. lol. I’ve got some work to do to get my strength back to where it was.

    Nice sharing the bar with you Joey, and nice to meet you!

    WOD rx’d: I think my time was around 14:15. I didn’t really care what the time was, I was just happy to finish it in the time cap. I was really dizzy from the KBs so I just tried to keep a steady pace throughout, even though it was slow. Thanks for the heckling, Blake. You kept me moving. 🙂

    Good job on your pullups Heidi! And Sarah, congrats on the band progression. You’re well on your way to bandless pullups. 🙂

    Great class Lora, thanks!

    1. Nice push on the WOD. I didn’t know you were dizzy 🙁 You cranked out the last round of pullups like your life depended on it. Great job!

    Fun Wod cardio started to give out second round of kbs but very happy with my time..
    Thanks Lora great coaching and great class. Good work everybody

    1. Nice work today! Thanks for accepting the “challenge”. You rocked it!. Glad the mobility for your chest/shoulder helped. Try to do that every few days, if you can.

  8. Huge effort from everyone today! You all made me proud!

    I saw lots of work on finding (and maintaining) great form on your lifts during “strength”.

    Some folks opted for lacrosse ball work and foam rolling to work out the kinks. Always a smart thing to do, particularly when you are stiff and sore.

    Thanks to those who accepted the challenge to do C2B pullups (and to add extra weight to your kettle bells). Its official: YOU are crazier than ME! 😛

    1. I don’t know about crazier but u are a great inspiration whenever u tackle a Wod so it’s fun to do the same for u when u put out a challenge. 🙂
