For sport and life

What is CrossFit? We see it as a strength and conditioning for sport and life! Men and women, boys and girls, of all ages, all over the world must move in a lot of different ways through various environments with purpose and intent. We help you define your limits (work capacity) and then, over time, push those boundaries further than you believed possible. We know this, not just because our workouts are “hard”, but because we track and record every workout and every event. From this, what we’ve seen is impressive progress in every area of fitness (as defined in the “What is Fitness?” article), from an athlete’s 1 rep max deadlift, to a faster “Murph” time, to achieving a handstand.

Workout of the Day

“Chelsea”
Complete as many rounds as possible in 30 minutes, starting on the minute, every minute:
5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats

If you fall behind, continue for the full 30 minutes. Record how many rounds you were able to complete within the minute, and total rounds in 30 minutes.

Finally made it to the end of this one! 30 minutes!

All pull-ups were chest to bar, as well.

This one is interesting in that once you get to 30 minutes, there’s no where else to go. It’s kinda over. Since I finished the 30 minutes strong, and wasn’t falling off in my time (35 secs) to complete a round, I want to do it again and see how far I can go before I can’t complete a round.

Last week was my 8th week on the 4:30 AM, M-F WOD. Additionally, Saturday I did the Open 14.3 workout, so that made 6 days last week. Feels good to be back on routine again!

I read your post before I attempted the WOD. I thought I would be cruising just like you. I was struggling with push ups on round 7…got 8/21. Brutal. Maybe is was the 4 hours of sleep last night…or maybe I have some work to do. Strong work Carney.
