No excuse not to WOD
Early AM hotel WOD using what was available in the hotel fitness room. WOD: 10 min amrap of: 1 arm 25# dumbbell snatches, 10 reps Squat medball throws, 15 reps Push ups, 20 reps I was 10 push ups short of finishing three rounds. Shoulders are smoked and now I’m off to watch these amazing elite athletes compete in the last of the Northeast Regionals!
2:02 is the fastest time for the men’s heat for “Diane” today
T minus 1 hour until the Northeast Regionals start!!!
Sitting, standing, and walking have been extremely challenging today. Yup, pretty much all activities of daily living. Crossfit problems. LOL
Jamming out and packing for the Northeast Regionals!!! I’m beyond excited and cant wait to cheer on some of my very own people this weekend! Next year I’m hoping it’ll be someone from our very own box!!! Updates will be posted here all weekend if my excitement doesn’t take over!! :)
Big dreams, big plans
You start to dream big and before you know it they turn into big plans. Big plans are scary! Theres the fear of failure, the fear of rejection, the fear of disappointing and the list continues. Why do we choose to focus on the negative?? What about all the positive? There’s the possibility of succeeding, there’s the possibly of impressing and the possibility of acceptance and maybe...
Time is Critical...
whether you are taking your time to hit a barbell movement properly, moving fast to get as many reps in before the time runs out, or if you’re taking time to heal. No matter the situation, time is soooo important. Listen to your mind, body and spirit and take the time it needs. It’s easy to overlook this but no one else will keep track of this for you but you. I have been focused...
Wobbly de wobble dewop wobble wobble
This is how I felt after all the back squats in today’s workout. Today’s WOD: “Brian” 3 rounds for time of: 15ft rope climb, 5 ascents 95# back squat, 25 reps This workout felt a lot worse than it looked. I finished in 24:35. My legs were totally numb by the time I was done. Oh and I got rope burn on my inner thigh because I went against my better judgement and wore shorts....
Hit 80 pounds for two reps. I was so damn excited about it! I have struggled with overhead squats for as long as I can remember, I still do. I’m so happy to see progress! :)

I worked out three times today and yet still feel amazing. I think I may regret it when I can’t get myself out of bed in the morning with rolling onto the floor first.

I went hard and I wanted the room to...
Things I've learned...
when encouraging others to be their best and do their best, I should do the same you can’t make everyone happy, so stop trying to be true to yourself is the most important truth of all living a double life has finally taken a toll on me there’s never a right time to face my fears there’s never a right time to deal with confrontation being in my head all the time is ruining...
Pretty good article on muscle ups →
Working on my Weaknesses
I really, really, really want to start doing muscle ups. I don’t want to do progressions as a replacement during the workout anymore. I am working muscle up drills into my training, practicing them is the only way I will get them. I finally seem to have false grip down. Man that ish hurts. I have some nice bruises to prove it. As much as I dont want to I think I’m going to cut back...
AMRAP in 20 min of: 5 pull ups 10 push ups 15 squats I kicked her ass today. I PR’d and hit 15 rounds! I am feeling good and strong :)
So I took a big step...
It’s not really fitness related but it involves the box. I don’t have the greatest of relationships when it comes to my parents. They don’t really know anything about me and that’s no ones fault but my own. I’ve just gotten so used to giving them the minimum information from when I was a teenager that that is how I interact with them now. Well now that I’m...
