There is so much excitement for us crossfitters who are in the "OPEN" because we anxiously wait for Wednesday at 5pm. The website is updated with that weeks workout, which then consumes me for the next few days until I get to compete on Saturday. Not sure who picks the workouts, but they have not been the most creative. I will be honest and say that after last weeks 7 minutes of the same movement (burpee hell), I wasn't thrilled after hearing this week was 10 minutes of also ONE movement. Good ole' power snatches, once again one movement. There is a lot that goes into every workout, so not to say that one movement makes it easier, because it doesn't whatsoever, but definitely monotonous.
Here is a clip of a-whole-lotta-snatches from my crossfit gym in Bellevue. Next time I'll be sure to sign up for a slot at a different time of the videographer so I can make the video :)
Reebock is the proud CrossFit sponsor - this tank is calling my name!
And lastly, I know I talk about CrossFit a lot on my blog and for those of you wanting a little more information to know what we are about ... check out this video. There's definitely more hype around CrossFit now than when I started 3yrs ago, and I love it. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE that Bob Harper from The Biggest Loser is competing in the 2012 Crossfit Open AND even training his contestants in CrossFit movements on the show. Super exciting to see as it's absolutely functional movements for everyone - no matter your physical strength, endurance, and/or current fitness level.
I love me some crossfit, it never gets old!
I'm sitting the top 15% of the NW gals and Gabe's in the top 8% of NW men.
