080805 TUESDAY


As promised, Bryan and Shannon Stornetta sported their Diablo CrossFit shirts around camp after their 100mile race. And from the pictures below, who would question how “normal” most CrossFitters are?


(Shannon said she was too tired for a freestanding handstand)


(Bryan just looks like this most of the time, but I don’t know why he is wearing a towel? -jj)


As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of:

10 Thrusters (125lbs, 95lbs or 65lbs depending on skill and bodyweight)

15 Kettlebell swings (70lbs, 54lbs, or 35lbs depending on skill and bodyweight)

20 Double unders

Post total rounds and fractions for rounds completed (as well as weights used) to comments.



Another article from Keith Wittenstein at CrossFit Virtuosity.

“It is important to remember that torn calluses are an injury. Whenever you have an injury, you must give it time to heal. Altering your training to focus on lower body exercises is the preferred course of action. However, sometimes competition and personal factors makes it necessary for athletes to train or compete with an injured hand. What are you going to do to protect your hands and keep from aggravating the injury? Wear gloves? No way!”

    Totally unrelated to the article…but Coach is jackin idiots up on the main page tonight.
    Pretty entertaining too.
    Lot’s of stupid people out there.
    As for me, i miss the shed, have a PT test tomorrow and I’ll keep you all posted on how it goes.

    Good luck, Mike! Be sure to get a little rest in today, and eat light. With my powers of future seeing, I think I see a 9:27 on the stopwatch after your 1.5 mile is done. 😎

  • RUINER @ DiabloCrossfit

    That’s one second shy of full points!!! I’m looking for 9:26 or lower.

  • Mark L.

    In your e-mail to me, you said max points was 9:36! Here I was trying to give you hope, and a typo got in the way.
    OK. After recalibrating my seeing powers, let’s go with 9:17. 😎

    “Poor coach…” I don’t think so. I say “poor sorry-son-of-a-bitch-that decides he’s gonna open his dumb face and spout some inaccurate, idiotic crap at Coach and end up getting his pee pee smacked in the process”

    I love it when coach lays the ass whooping on heavy in the posts. Makes for entertaining reading on rest days.

    I just wonder what unfinished business those people have in their lives that makes them want to redirect attention to the ridiculous crap that they are making up about Coach.
    The internet is a hotbed of all sorts of new forms of social retardation, anxiety and deviance. Sure, I enjoy a good flame war as much as the next guy, but other times I just wish we could turn off all the computers for a couple days and reboot our collective social conscience. It would probably also help my elbow tendonitis. 😎
    I do have to say Coach can definitely throw down with the best flame throwers, and I’ve been doing this since 1988!

    Are we going to do a FGB fundraiser? How does that work? Do people sponsor you for each rep?
    What does the $$ go toward?

  • J Jones

    Check out the links from the other post Carry:


    It looks like CF Unlimited is waaay ahead of the rest of the affiliates so far.

    ALSO – Gold Gym is having their own “Games”!


    Pretty un-imaginative, but funny none the less.

    Who is down to kick some Gold’s Ass (while wearing CF shirts?)


  • Stavros

    I am in for both the FGB fundraiser and the Gold’s Gym “Gay-mes”

  • RUINER @ DiabloCrossfit

    I would be embarrased to be seen in a golds gym.
    Think they’ll let us kip the pullups? Chest to bar or head over bar?
    Pushups: Full lockout at the top? Chest touching floor at bottom…maybe muscle gut touching floor?
    Leg Press? Get the frick out of here.
