4th of July

I feel like I might get some negative feedback for this, but honestly. This has been on my mind for a really long time. Every year it really bothers me. And it actually has gotten kind of worse over the years for me. For all the combat veterans out there that share my pain. This […]

A little bit about my deployment

I actually forgot what month I deployed to Iraq, but I was stationed in Fort Richardson AK, with the 501st Airborne Infantry Division. Now forgive me if anything I say is incorrect, but it has been some time since Ive truly talked any military lingo nor have shared anything with any of you all. The […]

Its time to start a blog…

I figured it was time to sit down, take some time and actually start writing about my experiences in this world that I have been apart of. I want to keep this pretty health/fitness related but I am also open to talk about just about anything life throws in our ways. I might do a […]

The final…15.5

Looking at the workout for a second time, I think the workout is going to be won on the rower. Its about how you can pace yourself to save yourself for the thrusters. Unless you have a horrible time with thrusters and can only do like 3 at a time, the workout is going to […]

15.4

Oh boy, I think we are going to have one issues with the judging/marking on the standards for the HSPU. Anyways, just get it done. Like Josh said, you must learn and adapt to anything that may happen. So for the HSPU it is imperative that you make every rep count! Obviously we all new […]

15.3 Strategy

Obviously if you are extremely awesome at muscle ups, this becomes how long can you maintain the pace you started off with. So I think its imperative for those that can do massive amounts of muscle ups to get a SLIGHT lead from what you normally can hold and keep it. The reason why I say that […]

15.2 Tips

Just like last year but I think us here at CFL need to play this game a little different than from last. First off, everyone knows the the workout is about who has the best CTB Pull Ups. While the OHS will play a factor in the workout, having super good CTBs are huge. We […]

15.1

We all just watched Rich and Mat take this workout on. And obviously this whole workout is the GRIP and who can hold on longer. You have to be a mentally tough to fight through each TTB and DL and Snatch. So with that said, you must break up the toes to bar early. As […]

Motivation

Recently, Ive been asked several times about how I stay motivated. I haven’t done a post like this in awhile so I figured this would be the perfect time. Especially those in need. First off, there is actually a lot of thought process behind this so if I get all over the place and see […]

14.5 Tips

I literally just broke down Froning’s (Does his name have the “G” at the end? anyways) whole 14.5. He paced the entire workout. It looked he was running a 5k race. Never ever did he sprint. He was the last one finished on the first set of Thursters and 2nd to finish the Burpees (Set […]

14.2 Tips

14.2 Warm Up We need a slightly elevated HR before the WOD starts to maintain an aerobic capacity rather than ANAEROBIC! Basic WOD mobility Start off with 5 easy rounds not to fast of: 5 OHS 5 CTB And to maintain HR, 10k rowing pace right before the WOD. So super slow for 2-3 min […]
