Friday 3/5/10

Soon to be Spring Breakers,

I understand that your mind is already hundreds, if not thousands of miles away, in a place where, in your imagination, you are actually good looking. Regardless of where your mind is, your body better be in the CrossFit Gym at 0530, prepared to rip that mind out of its Banana Boat fantasy world and throw it into a universe of dark, gray, physical pain. I'm a realist. As such, I know that this workout may be the last healthy thing you do after next Thursday for 10 plus days. And the fact is, you're not good looking...you need this. So don't let your next pushups be the ones you do in the parking lot or your hotel room, as you attempt to somehow striate your tiny bird chest before you step onto the beach.

Be there or have a shame-filled spring break where you will probably get ridiculously sunburn, and then come back and try to relive your week by telling the stories over and over again, when the reality is that nobody wants to hear your stories, we just want you to stop being a noodly slob with a bad sunburn and a silly necklace made of fish bones or a pathetic string anklet that you now think is really cool.

The workout:

4 Rounds:
Buddy Carry 200m (one person)
25 push-ups (both)
Buddy Carry 200m (one person)
25 push-ups (both)

4 Rounds:
Buddy Carry 200m (one person)
25 sit-ups (both)
Buddy Carry 200m (one person)
25 sit-ups (both)

4 Rounds:
Buddy Carry 200m (one person)
25 squats (both)
Buddy Carry 200m (one person)
25 squats (both)

Shamefully yours,

I think this is the first time I did clean and jerk for weight so I will call this the PR. 185 is a tie for my PR in the squat clean and is a new PR for push jerk.
