My friend and fellow crossfitter, Laura Lee, put this on facebook the other day and I just had to quote her on Strong Figure. For anyone who’s having a bad day or just needs a good laugh, read on my friends!
Things I have learned due to my very own klutziness or just picked up during my CrossFit experience:
Even though the box jump won’t move, you should still look at it while jumping….trying to look at the clock or the champ in front of you is not a good idea….eventually you will miss the box completely!
No matter how many squats or lunges you do, you will still have dimples on the back of your thighs.
Once you get smacked in the “vaage” with an assisted band you will immediately learn to do kipping pull-ups.
Guys with soft hands are a little creepy.
There is such a thing as “DNF” a 200 meter warm-up run…it’s called, “smack the pavement with your face.”
Rolls of tape and pounds of chalk won’t strengthen calluses; more pull-ups will.
When your arms are jello and you are “stupid tired” don’t do wallballs…you will get smacked in the face with a 14# wallball falling from the air 10 feet high. However, your neck might get realigned and feel weirdly-amazing, or you may walk away with a bloody nose. Who knows?!
Move your face out of the way when lifting anything overhead. If not, expect a ‘chin-punch’ from the barbell.
If you want rhabdo, do an excessive amount of GHD’s, paired with heavy front squats after a long weekend of having your head in the toilet throwing up with the flu and a work week with not enough water supply.
It may suck before, during and after…but it’s so totally worth it. Embrace the suck.
3, 2, 1…GO!
Tell us, what can you add to Laura’s list?
