Before I go on and forget to mention it, there will be NO NOON CLASS ON THURSDAY this week. In totally unrelated topics, here are a few articles you need to read. Seriously. Read them now. If you’re at work, tell your boss that your coach is going to quiz you on the content later, and that there are 100 burpees at stake. If that doesn’t work then just pretend to open your Excel spreadsheets and give your boss the finger when they walk away…like you normally do.

Kelly Starrett shows you how to cause an inordinate amount of pain in the interest of self-improvement in “Stretch Your Psoas, People!

Andy Petranek of CrossFit LA talks about why he trains in his blog post from the other day, “Perspective.”

I don’t believe anyone has described what CrossFit really is better than its founder Greg Glassman. If you haven’t read his CrossFit Foundations article from the April 1, 2002 edition of the CrossFit Journal yet, you need to.


Weighted Muscle-Ups


(If you can’t do muscle-ups, you’ll do weighted pullups)


As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:

5 Push Presses @ 65% of body weight
10 Push Ups
15 Box Jumps


50 V-Ups (this is not a misprint)

  • Mark.B

    Oh, my aching Psoas!

  • Nice, weighted MUs I like it and V-ups we started doing these too. Here’s a fun one we call it “dréas” basically a jumping situp (no hands) right into a burpee, oh fun fun
