OT - Crossfit Open

Any mgobloggers participating in the Crossfit Open this year? Just got done with the first workout which is always a humbling experience. Always wonder how well division 1 collegiate athletes would do.

Yeah... I would not pay to go to a gym like that. They post workouts everyday on CrossFit.com, I have my own equipment and follow that for the most part. Starting out though I'd encourage you to find a gym with a quality coach that can teach you the movements and help you identify flexibility issues that will be good for you to start addressing. Doesn't sound like that's what you're getting.

It seems to hav a cultish hold over a certain percentage of its practicioners, sort of like the Atkins diet 10 years ago, and so people get annoyed at the "ZOMG it's teh only real workout, bro. CROSSFIT f*** yeah!"

That said, it is a pretty good workout and can be a perfect fit for some people.
