That’s the response we hear when some of these workouts come up. I get it-you think-
“How am I going to do that workout, it’s to much!”
If you are here on your first day, you are right it is. But as everyone has seen CrossFit elicits an unprecedented adaptational response. You get stronger,leaner,faster, and better quickly. We are seeing people do things every day that they were unable to do a month or even a week ago-even at things they used to train specifically for. For example, if your old routine included the bench press every week but didn’t include the major lifts of the squat ,deadlift, and presses you may be shocked when after not benching for several months while doing CrossFit and training the major lifts- you are stronger at bench pressing. This is not uncommon to see in CrossFit. So when you see a workout like Kelley come up, even if you always have to scale, know that you will rise to the occasion, stronger each time. You will amaze yourself after sticking with CrossFit for some time. Ask yourself-
“What am I capable of doing?”
As Thomas Edison put it-
“If we did the things we were capable of, we would astound ourselves.”
Everyone is astounding me already. I know we’ve come a long way in a very short time, but realize this- we’re just getting warmed up.



5 Rounds For Time

Run 400m
30 Box Jump 24″
30 Wall Ball 20/14

Of course scale as needed. If you are capable of doing this prescribed it is on the wall of fame.

Congratulations to Jared for Pr’ing his consecutive pull-ups with 7, up from 3. That’s the kind of leaps we’re talking about. I’m sure you’ll be seeing 15 very soon!
Also great work to everyone for attacking the Lynne WOD

    the only question that will keep coming up during crossfit workouts is “why did i waste so much time on traditional workouts”?
    during my 5 weeks, we havent touched the bench press once. and my bech press is more weight for more reps than during any time i lifted weights.
