You Know You’re a CrossFitter When… Part Deux

"The more you know"... Classic
“The more you know”… Total classic!

Since this topic was so much fun last time, I thought we should play another round of “You Know You’re a CrossFitter When…”  I collected this bunch from CrossFit Verve:

?- Your shins have more scrapes than a twelve year old boy.
?- You know better than to say, “That looks easy”.
?- You’ve spent HOURS watching videos of other people working out (who does that?).
?- CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe.
?- When you travel, your first concern is if there is a local affiliate close by.
?- Refresh is your favorite button after 9 pm.
?- 3 on-1 off takes priority in your schedule.
?- The words Snatch and Jerk have lost there comedic value, but farting while deadlifting has not.
?- There are days you have to talk yourself OUT of going to the gym because it’s a rest day and that means you are supposed to rest, right? You are confused at this and ask your coach if you can still go for a run. When they tell you rest means rest, still confused, you ask if that means you should do nothing or is there something else you could do…?
?- You shave your hands.
?- Pain is a relative term.
?- You know the ten general skills by heart and can recite them at social gatherings.
?- You have posted pictures of yourself working out on facebook.
?- You believe in sweat angels.
?- Tape and chalk are at a premium.
?- You used to bite your nails and now you pick at your calluses.
?- Almond butter is the nectar of the Gods.
?You know that the benchmark WOD’s are named after real people and you would find it interesting to talk with some of them and find out WHY?
?- You think in blocks not calories.
?- Fat is delicious, you laugh at fat free.
?- You know that a 70%+ dark chocolate bar can sub as 3 blocks carbs.
?- You must workout with loud obnoxious music, but never hear a word of it.
?- You consider other CrossFitters family.
?- You believe the world would be a better place if everyone was a CrossFitter.

Today’s Workout:

Buy-in- 3 rounds of:  10 kbs, 4 goblet squats

WOD – Strength then Baseline

First:  5×1 front squats – work up to a heavy single in the front squat

Then:  Baseline

Time to check in on this friends!  If you’ve only done the Baseline once, it’s time to see how far you’ve come.  If this is your second or third time, let’s lay down a PB and take a spot on the leaderboard!  Good luck 🙂

For time:

  • Row 500m
  • 40 squats
  • 30 situps
  • 20 pushups
  • 10 pullups

Games Prep:  If you have time, do 3 rounds of Baseline – hit a PB on the first round, rest as needed in between rounds 2 and 3.  Wind down with a 5 min row.

Record your max front squat and baseline time as different scores.

Cash-out: Partner stretches – single leg hamstring, quads.  Contract for 3 sec, relax for 7 sec x 4 per leg.
