“Barbara” oooh here’s a fresh face. No rowers, no running, no weights; no complaints, right?
5 round for time:
20 Pull Ups
30 Push Ups
40 Sit Ups
I spoke to the 5:30 class but I want everyone to know, your efforts today were legendary. I could have scaled some of you more aggressively but in addition to effective training I wanted you to have one of those great CrossFit experiences that has nothing to do with the white board and all to do with guts and fear. In the past I have called it, “Slapping the Bear” (this is before I had an athlete named Bear). But the idea of taking on the challenge where winning is not beating the clock or another athlete, but to tackle the ominous and come out the other end bloody but unbowed. “Gut check” or “out of your comfort zone” is dismissive and cliché, this is stepping into the clearing and spotting a 12 foot tall, one ton predator, crossing the distance at a sprint, leaping into the air, smacking him in the face and yelling, “let’s dance fat ass!” Well done Silverbacks.
