Mike's WOD #1
The workout seems simple enough
100 body weight deadlifts
100 pushups
100 pullups

Any way you want to do it...for time

For instance i broke it up into 10 reps of each exercise for 10 rounds
Be warned this workout is deceptively tough it took me 30 minutes I could have gone faster but I tore my hands on the pullups..So try it and let me know what you think

OK so the workout seemed simple enough
Choose an exercise, do 30% of your one rep max and do 100 reps. If you have to rest, rest for as many second as you have reps left to do.
Today Karen and I did Bench and Bicep curls, just to try it out. Thursday is lifting day, go ahead make fun of it all you want crossfitters, Im still doing the Wods as prescribed some times its fun just to lift stuff.
Anyway I did 135 on the bench for 100 grueling reps..OWWWWW
Then I did 45 on the curls again my biceps felt like they were going to explode.OWWWW

Have any of you tried this? If Not give it a shot and let me know what you think.

PS This is so what I looked like when I was 6. :)

My Additions are as follows

AC/DC (Hells Bells)
Metallica-The Day that never comes

Ok People lets see what you got

Why Do you Crossfit?


So I know Ive had this question asked to me plenty of times. Usually by my friends who think I'm nuts for putting in two a days, or who just generally enjoy playing XBOX instead of burpees.
So I thought Id dedicate the first true post to exploring this. Why DO we Crossfit?
For me personally its many different things. Im a naturally competitive guy, so Crossfit offers me the way to fill that need for competition. Now competition within crossfit is vastly different i think than any other sport or program. Yes your competing to be the first done or get the best score, but you also take time to encourage and cheer for your fellow crossfiters. During the Maine Fittest Games I knew in event 1 that my only real competition would be Tyler, I felt confidant that i would beat him. But that didn't stop me from screaming and cheering him on as he fought through the grueling workout, and he ended up beating me by 6 seconds, and I was OK with that.(KINDA :) ) Its about pushing yourself, seeing just how far you can go and how much gas you have in the tank. Far too often i feel we settle for far less than we were meant to do, physical spiritually and personally. Crossfit makes us, changes us and forces us to be the best versions of ourselves. One slogan I think that sums it up best is..Crossfit, learn how to not suck at life..... SO WHY DO YOU CROSSFIT?
