Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come!! This week starts the 2015 CROSSFIT GAMES IN CARSON CALIFORNIA!!! But before we get to that, I'd like to highlight a competition that's been getting started in our own box...

 

The annual summer PR challenge!  If you've been at the box these last few days, you may have seen some crazy kids doing a lot of pull-ups and running.  This weekend your fellow crossfiters completed their "pre-test" for the PR challenge with a choice of workouts between "Helen" and "Nicole".  I asked a couple coaches about their thoughts, and this is what they had to say:

 

"Everyone did awesome."

-Coach Ben

 

Although his words are few, they are full of truth! Everyone DID do awesome.  Coach Mike explained how people were surprising him left and right; Rx-ing workouts that they never had before and completing kipping pull-ups in a WOD after just learning the skill a few days prior.  Congrats to all athletes, and I'm looking forward to seeing how much you improve within the next 6 weeks!!

 

Now, about the Games.  If you aren't familiar with the CrossFit games, here's a look at all the awesomeness that is to come in the next week:

 

GET PUMPED.

WOD:

300m Run with hammer

40 alternating tire hits

30 box JUMP overs 

800m run with med ball (20/14)

 

SKILL:


 wear a shirt that you don't mind getting dirty from the tires!

 

and as per requested by coach Ben, this video may or may not appear each day this week. (WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE)

 

 

"The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, ‘You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.’ The human spirit is indomitable."

-Roger Bannister

Heya are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying
to get started and create my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make your own blog?

Any help would be really appreciated!

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it
was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
Do you have any points for first-time blog writers?
I'd certainly appreciate it.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
