Another solid strength day at CFA brought me a new 3 rep PR in overhead squat and a chance to “try out” one of the individual WODs from the upcoming CrossFit Games Southeast Regionals. And then, after that, I went and had minor outpatient surgery to remove a big-ole mole on my back. A lovely [...]

A light day at CrossFit Asheville this morning, with just a few reps of “muscle up progression” followed by a quick and dirty “Kettlebell Snatch Count Down,” a little workout I’m calling Disco Stud, in honor of the Homer Simpson in all of us, or at least, in me. New Program Training Cycle: Week 1/6 [...]
