Before I started CrossFit, 2 years ago, I had borderline high blood pressure, despite the marathons and triathlons and static weighlifting I did (hereditary, I believed). CrossFit’s intense, varied, full-body wods lowered my bp below my age group average – without diet change in 6 months! Remarkable.

    Good one. Man, I think I need a couple days off. Tired of getting my ass kicked by everyone!

    Darren:

    Jon saw Rob’s #’s from the night before on the board – so he wrote down the average for each exercise to know what he had to do to beat him. Pretty funny – competitive bastard.

    You tie me Craig and then write that you’re tired of getting your ass kicked by everyone. Thanks for that:) On that note, I’d just be happy to do a WOD involving pullups that doesn’t end up with me pouring hydrogen peroxide into an open wound. Gotta love the pain.

  • Craig

    Funny! I saw your numbers- not long before you’re kicking my ass too.

    I’m starting to get those same damn wounds too – working on the muscle ups has given me very nice wrist blisters (false grip!).

    Who gets blisters on their wrists???

    Who’s bright idea was it to put pushups after pullups? Ouch!
