Follow the link HERE to sign up for the CrossFit Games Open.  I have not yet created a team, but when I do, you can add yourself or we can add you later.
We are going to program all these workouts for the gym anyways, so why not sign up?
I enjoyed being ranked 10, 357 last year, let's see if I can get to 10, 350th place this year!

WOD: Come in and find out. Bring a friend to the 8 am class! It's always FREE!


This is one of my favorite early CrossFit Journal articles talking about training and dealing with injuries.  This article is not about rehabbing an injured body part, but rather to work on things you can't do and improve on those.  Knee hurts when squatting?  Time to get awesome at Pull Ups!

If you don't have time to read the whole thing, the last paragraph sums it up nicely:

"The advantages to recovering CrossFit-style over watching TV and waiting for the leg to heal are threefold.  First the injured leg will heal more quickly and atrophy less. Second, [You] will acquire skills and strength that wouldn’t have developed otherwise. Third, the mental anguish that nearly always accompanies an athlete’s down time is greatly reduced."
