Wow, I Got Old Quick!

We did Angie on Sunday at CrossFit Everlast and I am still pretty beat up. We are going on three days here! What happened? I know….I turned 36, that’s what happened. Time flies when you love craft beers!

Went to rehab last night for my knee, which is doing well, it’s just sore. They started me on box jumps which felt great. Everything is super tight so lots of stretching today.

I am skipping the gym today for the sake of recuperation. Swimming at lunch which usually helps because: 1) the water is cold as hell, which means it’ s like ice, and 2) you can stretch while swimming, in particular my lats are a little angry right now.

Alright, time to go to work. Have fun out there.

CrossFit Sweat

 

Sweat angels are a thing of beauty. Nothing shows how hard you have worked like laying on the floor leaving a puddle of DNA for future analysis. You filthy animal!

That’s what I’m Talking About!

Most of us have worked out before, and worked up a sweat. You have never sweated like a CrossFit sweat before. You are drenched. Shirts can be wrung out like a damn towel. Your car seats will never be the same again. Go ahead, buy the “moisture wicking” gear. It won’t help. It will only increase the size of the sweat pool on the floor as you are standing over the bar.

How to Prepare:

Febreze:

Buy a lot of it. Keep a can in your car. Spray your shoes, your gym bag, the seats,..heck spray yourself while you are at it!

Doing CrossFit leads to you smelling like Victory. Try a different, better smelling version of Victory to cover it up.

Beach Towels:

Keep two in your car. Drape one over your seat, otherwise your car will smell like a hockey bag. Never smelled a hockey bag? Good for you. Count yourself lucky. Use the other to try and dry yourself off, otherwise your seat belt will smell like a gym sock.

Chalk:

No joke, your hands will sweat. Do you know what happens when you try KB swings with wet hands? You might kill somebody and you don’t get to pick so don’t risk it. A little goes a long way. Use too much and you will tear your hands which looks cool however takes you out of the game for a day or two.

Does anyone have any other tips they would like to share to battle the stink! Chuck Norris does:
