Buy In

We’ve got an ever growing buy in for the 100 Burpee Challenge (tomorrow is day 12, and the buy in is now at 78).  Tuesday the workout has a buy in.  It’s an AMRAP, so you’ll have 20 minutes to get the buy in out of the way and get as much work as possible done in the remaining time.  If you buy into the Burpee Challenge you get more burpees.  Once you finish the buy in tomorrow you get a kickass AMRAP.SCS_CFF_051410-5770

  1. Thanks for letting me join the 5:30 class this week!!!!

    Box Jumps – 44″ (pr over 41″ last time)

    WOD – 5 Rounds and 1/2 400m run Rx

  2. Great to have you Sandon. 44″ on the box jumps, 6 rounds on the WOD + half a 400m run. I had just over a minute left after round 6 and I looked a Stacey hoping she would tell me I was done knowing I couldn’t do another round in the time I had left. All I got was ” GOOOOO!! FASTER!!” That is why I love crossfit, and our coaches.If I was doing that workout on my own I might have stopped, but Stacey made me run another 400 and that will only make me better.

  3. So there has been a lot of talk about coconut water lately. It is a great replacement for Gatorade and …

    “Coconut water is a potent detoxifying agent against some types of poisons. Coconut water hydrates the body, and is used in natural oral re-hydration therapy. Coconut water is an antibacterial, which aids in flushing the liver, and also helps in controlling vomiting. Regularly drinking coconut water helps in boosting the metabolism, reducing stress, nervous and emotional imbalances. Coconut water is also used as an intravenous hydration fluid in some developing countries where medical saline is unavailable.”

  4. 27″ box jump (24″ box+20kg+10kg…so that seems low…maybe I can’t measure…)

    WOD: 20″, 3 rounds+400m run+3 squats
    (subbed squats for KB swings)

    My legs aren’t too happy right now, but it was great to be back!

  5. Today was the day I lost my fear of the box: all 50 in the WOD at 20″ and a pr of 27″ for the max. I won’t be jumping the tire any time soon, but I’m damn proud…
    Thanks Stace!!

    1. Congratulations! Makes me think of the book: Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway.
      Kristin’s of the world ROCK!!!!!! -K

  6. 46″ box jump, first time, so no comparison

    WOD: 6rounds plus 100m

    Jim, great job today – great pace all around!

  7. 45″ box jump, also a first time so can’t compare. But I’m pretty psyched with that mark being just 5’8″

    WOD: 5 rounds + 400m (1.5 pd). As always, a little tougher workout than I expected, but that’s what we’re all here for.

    Question: Is there going to be an invasion this weekend? For those who haven’t been to an invasion yet, GO! I went for the first time last week and can’t believe what I’ve been missing. There must have been 20 of us and the energy was electric. It was also fun to watch some first timers get a little taste of what we’re all about.

    Lastly, I can vouch for coconut water. Vita Coco is excellent, but avoid ZICO like the plague.

  8. Does anyone have any experience with Goya unsweetened coconut water (or any other “ethnic” brand)? The reason I ask is that it is way cheaper than Vita Coco, ZICO and O.N.E but seems to be 100% coconut water.

  9. First workout after half ironman on Sunday…was hoping for one a bit easier on the legs…but I did not get that. In the end I think it was good for me.

    Max box jump: 32.5″ (24 box w/2 20k plates and 1 10k)

    WOD: 4 rounds Rx + 300m (buy in jumps and running were both SLOWWWW today).

    After workout massage…awesome. Everyone should try it. Thanks Vanessa!
