Thumbs up Are you CrossFit?

I've been doing pretty much the same routine in the gym for the past 10 years. You know legs one day, back & bi's, chest & tri, shoulders/traps etc. Well at the beginning of the year some of my buds in CA got me hooked on CrossFit.com. Gotta say the results I have seen have been amazing! And the routines are killer, lots of fun cause most workouts are done for time. The comments and people watching in the gym have been awesome.

Anyway for those who are trying to get "fit" and not just big and strong, I would check them out. Here are some of my favs.

Check out more of their stuff at http://crossfit.com My goals this year: to do a standing back flip and do a walking handstand up two flights of stairs without stopping.

My battalion has picked up crossfit this year, fuckin' loving it so far. It's what CAG and Ranger Batt have been doing for years now.

My personal favorite: Fran

I'll have to try Jax, that looks pretty awesome. 50s are cool, but I've never been a huge fan.

Here's the guy that trained us doing Cindy, pretty beastly:

Haven't done Fran yet, and Cindy looks fucking rough. I'll have to give them both a shot.

The intensity of these workouts are mind blowing, especially if you're working out with a bud and you push one another. Never felt anything like it. I've damn near blacked out a few times. Awesome

They are starting a crossfit program at the Y in downtown Fort Worth where I work out. All the trainers are having to go through it, and it's fun to watch very fit, normally unflappable trainers in so much pain.

I plan to give it a go once I get rid of some of this extra weight. Looks brutal, but in a good way.

I really didn't think the deadlifts were TOO bad (this was my first Diane) and I'm not really all that strong with them. The fucking handstand p/u raped me though.
