A friend of mine has been introducing me to CrossFit, a fitness training regiment primarily based around power-lifting and full-body calisthenics. Every day a new workout is published at a central website, CrossFit.com. Today’s workout was…five rounds for time of: 135 pound Back squat, 20 reps and a 20-yard handstand walk.
Included at the bottom of every posted workout are usually some times/records from notable CrossFit athletes around the world. There will also usually be a demonstration video of these athletes doing the “workout of the day” (WOD). Today’s demo video came from a group of CrossFit kids (CrossFitKids.com).
And that’s when stuff got real!
