As I was sitting here typing in the date for the WOD, I realized it was Thursday all ready - it makes me stop and think how quickly our days, weeks, months and years fly by. You probably think I am going to get all sappy now, but nope - remember a day in the box means another day of a fit healthy life - ENJOY THEM ALL, and get in the BOX and KICK some ASS!

"50 in the Clip"

50 burpee clean and jerks at 42.5kg

Hell yeah ladies and gentleman - stabilizer muscles are firing, legs are burning, and forearms are asking you to stop - what is the answer to those "problems" HELL NO - I would rather die before I got a DNF on the board. :-) For any new people reading the blog, I am usually not so aggressive - today I just felt like taking it to the next level. hehe

Email from Brant!!!! Our resident Parajumper

Hey Alena and everyone else,

O just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that all is well and hot as hell in Texas. 45 out of 70 days over 100 degrees. Basic was well that basic, but a few cool things happened. One it was apparent to my military training instructor that I was into CF and we ended up crossfiting five days a week. It was awesome. A few times we had an entire flight of 55 AF trainees doing a tabata WOD. it was quite a sight. This one kid came in at102 lbs and could only do 3 push-ups and after PT and CF he gained 20lbs and was able to do 54 push-ups. it was crazy to have all these different MTI's asking about CF and nutrition. Crossfit it moving like a wild fire throughout the military.

On another note I start indoc on Monday. I'm excited and a little nervous. I just have to pass one day at a time. I heard the we do super CF WOD's in the program. one workout was 800, that's right 800 burpees, in two and a half hours. In a sick way I'm looking forward to that shit.

Well stay in touch and if anybody want to right or anything like that here is my address:

Post from Robin, Art, Jackie and Jenny + others ;0)

Anyone who is interested in going out on Friday night to celebrate birthday's, we are going to have dinner at Silver Peak (the one near the Riverside movie), at about 8:30 email Alena if your planning on coming and then going out from there. On Sunday we are planning to run around Donner Lake (7.2 miles) meeting at Safeway at 6:45 MaCarran and MaeAnne in the northwest Reno area, after the run we are planning on going out for breakfast. Let Alena know how many want to go.

Thanks Robin

Nice way to finish a week - so early Sunday..... :0)

Thursday 13, August 2009


Today is Robin's birthday! Happy birthday Robin - we will be doing a team WOD today for Art and Robin's birthday's combined.

"50 + 3"

50 tire flips - this is to be completed together (especially if you get the big tires)
then one team mate goes to
50 sledge hammer swings - 25 on each arm
the other goes to
50 wall balls
when both are done you switch movements
when both of these movements have been completed by both team mates you then do the same thing for
50 burpees
and the other goes to
50 ball slams
again switching when both have completed fifty

Where does the 3 come into play you ask????

HAHA there is a 3 minute max time limit on each movement - if you or your partner does not complete a 50 rep movement in 3 minutes, you run a 200m lap for each movement for each team member (so, if you both fail to get 50 burpees in 3 mins you run 400m one 200 for each of you) to be ran at the end of the WOD - counted in your total time. :-)

JB is back this month from his foot injury, and asked or this WOD as his birthday WOD.

This month is packed with b-days, so we should have some great WODS - we have Jackie, Jenny, Art, Robin, Gene, Travis, JB, and I know I am missing someone else. Travis already has his WOD picked out, so I am working on a special one for Landaga family - Art is turning 50, Jackie and Jenny are turning 25 - their birthdays are 1 day apart from dad's. If you can think of something especially good in reference to 25 and 50 let me know. :-)

Kettlebell swings - 24 kg
Box jumps - 20 inches

Start with 40 of each movement, ten 30, ten 20 of each and finish out with 10 of each movement - for TIME!
