“Bosco Lite” – Tearing it Up!

Tweet Waking up this morning…I felt great.  It was the first morning in a couple of weeks where I did not feel any pain from the shin splints in both legs I had been struggling with.  The soreness in my quads from Fran was finally gone and I had a decent nights sleep.  All was […]

Annie Get Your Gun

Elements – Day 4

Tweet Don’t worry…I’m not going to post after every workout…but I will post every once and a while after a workout really resonates with me. As Crossfit is five times a week…I’d likely get carpel tunnel syndrome from all of the writing I would then have to do. Today at the Box we moved away […]

Tweet I can’t believe it has already been 4 weeks.  The Friday the 9th was the final on ramp class for my group at Crossfit Performance and was also the morning after my birthday.  While I did not go nutty for the big 3-0, my wife and I did enjoy a nice dinner and wine […]

First Elements Workout – 7/5

Tweet So with the On-Ramp schedule for the class at Crossfit Performance running into the holiday weekend Ben decided to move our normal class from Monday to Tuesday.

500 Meter Row Time Trial

Tweet It is official…Crossfit kicked my butt this morning. For the first fifty minutes or so…I was thinking to myself…”Oh, this is not going to be too bad of a day”. Man was I wrong. After reviewing the back squat with BK we moved into working on the Burgner warm-up. It is basically a precursor […]
