Hello from CrossFit NorCal!Margie and I arrived today and took half of Dutch's Training Development Seminar which was phenomenal. We're going to try and get him out to SBK in a couple months. CFNC is an amazing box and Robb and Nicki have been very warm in their welcome to us. We plan to learn and play as much as we can while we're out here. more details to come!

Today's WOD5 Rounds for time of:24 Mountain Climbers24 Box Jumps24 Pull-ups15:something or other.READY FOR A REST DAY

Keep up the great work, everyone! I'm really anxious to get back and see you all on Monday

I second David - this place is fantastic. It's pretty great to watch Robb teaching muscle snatches.

WOD:4 rounds31 mtn climbers31 box jumps (subbed step ups)31 pullups (subbed body rows)17:23

I fell on my other shin doing a warmup box jump. My legs are gassed. My CNS is gassed. Hence the steps up.

Now I'll have matching shin scars. Sweet.

Didn't manage a single rep on the last set. Total lack of concentration. Blah.

Are Robb and Nicki still talking about coming to NYC for a month?

Nicole,That's incredible! You're a strrrronnggg lady.(margie says "really?! that's fuckin awesome!")

Dan,Expect to see that kind of programming for a little while. We may occasionally sub Max Effort work for 30 minutes of dedicated skill work on either an Olympic Lift or gymnastics movement.

We're off to the Sierra Nevada Brewery with Robb, Nicki and Dutch. I'm very excited to consume some alcohol and unwind.

holy crap nicole!!..you kicked ass tonight. it was inspiring seeing you wrestle through the pull ups.

front squats-felt good, need to work on hip flexibility.135, 135, 155, 165, 185

WOD 7.39ring push ups instead of hspu. cant wait to learn how to do those.pull ups with green band.

Yeah, Nicole... that shit was off the hook. At one point I was right across from you on those damn pull ups and I think I got more energized just watching you bang those pull ups out. Very hot.The WOD killed me. 15:50. But after the 30 warm up push ups and now this 64... if it killed me i wasn't dropping my knees. last set I had to do about half of them over cause I just couldn't keep it up. But eventually I got em all in, no knees... and chest to the floor. and.they.sucked.

i'm back on the road for the next 2 weeks and reluctantly doing the manhattan half marathon this weekend inspite of my knee being wonky. will be there next weekend in my short stop back in town.

get home safe david and margie!

I am heading out to San Diego late Sunday and will be there until Wednesday morning.

can anyone suggest which CropssFit affiliate I should visit? I may not be able to work out but I'd like to visit and maybe get a tshirt.
January 23, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRob
Rob, San Diego is packed with cool affiliates.

CrossFit San Diego is a must. The trainers are killer and the gym is sweet.

Check out CrossFit Coronado and CrossFit SoCal is cool, too.

Have Fun!

FSQ 5x3(45x8,45x5, 65x5,80x2,90x1)

100,105,110,115,120 - last rep was not legit depth. But basically a PR. Got some great tips from Robb on my stance that will definitely allow me to add weight.

Press 5x360,62.5,65,70,72.5(PR)

played with tall snatches @ 55#

Then 4 rounds of shuttle run and 5 pullups to be completed in under 1 minute.
