CrossFit Games/Thrash Session 14July2012
I am on my way to the CrossFit Games at the home depot center today! I am so excited to be going to watch the best! Stand by for more blogs and pictures from what went down at the games!
So today’s Thrash Session is Games inspired again! Regional Workout 11.4 is the WOD today!
Thrash Session 13July2012
So today are the CrossFit Games and I just want to say that I am stoked to be going to the event tomorrow. I can’t wait to see these amazing athletes kill it. I am so excited by the first event. Finally adding an event or a few events that I believe are important to testing overall fitness. I think that they should have WOD’s in the Open’s are Regionals with some more running/rowing involved. Not necessarily distance but a WOD with a mile in it or 400-800m sprints which we see in WOD’s all the time. Anyways, I look forward to watching the best complete and hopefully can be amongst them in the next few years to come. Click here to start your training for the 2013 Games
Thrash Session 11Jul2012
So apparently today they had the first CrossFit Games surprise event. I am cool with that and all but I really wanted to go watch. It was on Camp Pendleton and since I love CrossFit and am stationed there, you think they would have put the word out a little bit more so I could have helped out. Either way I think it’s awesome and we are going to do some CrossFit Games inspired work outs today! I can’t wait to go to the games this weekend, get in some work-outs and watch the games go down. I am slightly out of shape as I have had a few days off! I am busy getting this site up and running as well being a new father. Babies need a lot of love and attention and I absolutely love my little girl.

Thrash Sess. 6July2012
I hope everyone is taking a rest day at some point! I know most blogs post a rest day but everyone works out different days depending on their schedule. The fact is this blog is to help ALL people who wish to improve fitness and not just program for those competition athletes. It can be used as a competitive training program with future modifications that will personalize and customize the work out for each person by using percentages in direct correlations with repetitions. However, give me a little bit to work on that. I don’t just have one full time job, I have about 3 now. Corpsman, Dad, Husband and soon to be business person so I am doing my best to be proficient at them all. So here is your thrash session today.
