You'll get used to it quickly. I could hardly move after my first CrossFit workout. Just make sure you scale properly, which a good coach should help you with. I've seen guys come to my gym to do Crossfit too proud to scale. They don't last long. They finish the workout the same time as the experienced guys but everyone knows that when counting their reps they just went, " One, two, twenty".

Do you mean the Torian Pro? I watched most of it as a few friends were competing. One of them has made it to the CrossFit Games in the US later in the year.

How brutal was that workout where they had to pull the sled? One of my friends got a few centimetres away but just got cut off so had to do another round. Ouch.

Didn't catch what it was called but that must have been it. It's like a qualifier for the proper games yeah? I've never watched anything like that before. Was pretty impressive

Double Under practice this morning. Got 100 unbroken. We then did this workout.

SA DB = single arm dumbbell
DU = double unders

The airdyne has to be my least favourite movement. It sucks so bad.

I broke it up into 20 rounds of
5 pull ups
10 pushups
15 squats
Solid time. I did it about 6 months ago for the first and only time and did 44.30. Genuinely thought i was going to puke at the end. Think i went hard on pull ups and push ups (sets of 10-20 and 40-50) as they are strengths. Might have to give it another go in the next few weeks.

Did you do strict pull ups or kipping ones?

Strict, i dont even think i can do kipping (i dont do crossfit so havent learned the technique)

Pretty impressive with strict pull ups. Kipping is so much easier than strict when you have the technique. I can do butterfly pull ups but prefer not to. Too much stress on the rotator cuff for me.
