     Good morning Ramble-heads... how do you like that for my cult like followers? If no that, how about Froshaholics? Either one works. Anyway, I hope you are all doing well, and better than me. nothing like a 4 am wake up and going till about 630 at night. But hey, I'm still getting my WODs in and rambles out, so lets continue with that.

     So, I thought about something today... yes, training for deployment and CrossFit pops into my head... so what? Anyway, I have another questions for you. What is CrossFit preparing you for. There are many that use CrossFit for a general workout program, nothing wrong with that. Others train to be better at their sport. Some reap the benefits of weight loss and increased health. So what about you?

     Me, like my in the LEO/Military community, it prepares me for rigors like deployment and anything that comes my way. What kept me sane (sort of) in Haiti? CrossFit. What is keeping on my toes for this current one? CrossFit. What did I do in Afghanistan? Well... not CrossFit, but I wish I did!

     So whether you're using it to be better at say, Frisbee. Or, whether you indeed compete in competitions, be it CrossFit/Powerlifting/Olympic Lifting or others. CrossFit is designed to increase the GPP (General Physical Preparedness) of all that use it. So please, responses will be appreciated and read at a much later time in the evening. So live to train, train to live... and do burpees.

3,2,1 GO!

Yesterday's WOD:

7 rounds for time
10 Wallballs 16 lbs (it's all I had)
10 situps
Time - 4:56


  1. I started out doing CrossFit to get better at MMA,but now I CrossFit to get better at CrossFit. That's just how it all worked out. I'd like to think that CrossFit prepares me for the unknown situation in life that would challenge me physically to the point of mental breakdown. Hopefully that unknown situation will never happen,but if it does.......

  2. Oh,and I like watching that video from CrossFit Atlas! That's where my L1 was held. Multiple sub-3min fran times on their leaderboard,best being 2:04.
