I get more emails requesting I include more writing than I do about the workouts or nutrition.
I ask you about what you’re eating or your training and I get nothing, I send out the workout alone and I get “Boring”.
So, what do you want to talk about? Want to discuss how fucking annoying it is when someone in front of you drives 50mph in the left lane?
I never ever remember it being like this. When did this start? I feel like it’s on purpose. I feel like the people that used to stay in the right lane and do 50 now have become brazen and purposely move over to say “fuck you” to everyone. I’ll tell ya exactly what it is.
It’s all this inclusivity bullshit. These people knew their place before, not that it was bad or good, just efficient.
Now it’s fuckin mayhem. People do whatever the fuck they want to do with no regard for anyone else.
I’m telling you this is exactly the reason people are doing this. They figure if a man can play women’s sports I can drive in the left lane and hold up traffic.

You know what’s fuckin terrible about this?
There’s going to actually be people that believe this is a healthy choice.
Yes, chocolate covered rugelach is a healthy choice.
There’s 120 cals in one of these things. You know there’s no way in hell that anyone is eating one of these. I can’t imagine if anyone is buying these
they’re not thinking, I’ll only have one here and there.
What a fucking joke.

If you were lucky enough to get into the gym today you would have seen that the workout was changed from 5 rounds to 5 x 4 min amraps.
The change made a huge difference with the intensity of the workout.
The way it was originally written had no sense of urgency to get the round done quickly, other than if you are able to push yourself to an uncomfortable place.
The change in the wod made you feel like you had to get done with the round before the 4 minutes was up, pushing you to finish quicker.
This has a much different effect on how your body reacts to the workout, it’s not how your body is effected during the workout but afterward that makes all the difference.
Basically the more intense the workout, whether it be from increasing the load or increasing the speed, the more lasting effect it has on your body.
This is what we are after!
As long workouts with no built in rest have their place in fitness, you are much better off going full speed for short periods of time.
Who does this mimic? Sprinters! What do sprinters look like? Jacked mother fuckers!
What do runners who run longggg distances look like? Skinnnnnyyyyy, Ethiopian skinny with little muscle mass.

Crossfit Syosset/ Thursday, February 16th

Workout:
Single leg Deadlift w/ KB
4 x 10 each leg

Metcon:
5 Rounds :90 rest b/t rounds
500 Row
30 Wall Ball 20/14
10 Burpee over rower

I’m happy to report that tampons were not the main issue this time with the bathrooms.
I’m unhappy to report the real problem was the clorox wipes. Yes, someone is flushing clorox wipes down the toilet.
You’ve beaten the super duper shredder pump! According to the last plumber this was not a possibility. I’m not really sure how clorox wipes clog a pump specifically designed to shred anything in it’s path but, they don’t make shit like they used to.
I have an idea, it’s a stretch but I think it might help.
How about we flush absolutely nothing down the toilet but toilet paper. That actually may be why it’s called toilet paper, because it’s the only thing that should go down the toilet, except for shit and piss but that’s a given.
Let’s try and give this a go.
I think if we come together as a group and tackle this shit we can get it done.

Crossfit Syosset/Monday, February 12th

Workout:
Front Squat
5 x 5
Work up to a heavy moderate set of 5 then start your work sets and increase each set.
If you can’t stay upright, you don’t do it. Don’t struggle leaning forward with your elbows down.
That’s not how this works.

Metcon:
5 Rounds :60 rest b/t rounds
10 Squat Clean Thruster @135/95
10 C2B Pull ups
You are resting after each round of 20 reps, you know what that means, right?
That means your ass better be cookin through each round.
Let’s say for example you were to do this workout at 5 rounds straight and your time was 10 minutes.
The way we are doing it today requires you to go a bit faster each round. Instead of 2 minutes per round maybe shoot for a minute to 90 seconds per round.
These numbers are totally fictitious, just trying to give you an idea on what needs to be done.
