Re: How to pick up girls in a gym- Must be a Crossfiter

Re: Hijack thread

However, I think the US Gov't. has once again turned away from the average working man, and instead funded a study on the hope that a cat strapped to buttered toast, (butter AWAY from the cat) is how...

Re: Hijack thread

I think the cat will totally rule the toast, since I don't think you mentioned that the toast was buttered when it was put upon the cat.

I know, right? But I think it'll be alright - my sons started their Zombie Defense training on the Wii last week.

Re: Hijack thread

So if you're ever in town, look me up. The Black Butte Porter on tap at the RB Smokin' Barbeque is the ambrosia salad of beers.

First round's on me.

Re: CrossFitters in the Central Coast - San Luis Obispo

I've been CF'ing out of my garage in Paso Robles since August 2004. Too far for you probably, but I'm just checking in.

We are few a far between here in SLO county, but we are here.

Re: Hardest workout you've ever done?

This is the only workout I haven't been able to finish....
...I quit on Linda once but finish it strong now.

Kalsu for me is a will breaker.

Re: Concept 2 Indoor Rower Model C w/ PM2

Re: Concept 2 Indoor Rower Model C w/ PM2

I have never been limited by my Model C w/ PM2

interval for 5 rounds on a Model D/ PM3 that is pre-
programmed into the monitor. I...

Re: Concept 2 Indoor Rower Model C w/ PM2

I'm gonna channel Sling Blade and ask what should be obvious:

Does it have fresh batteries?
Is the monitor plugged in?

Re: Fractional Plates worth the money?

Okay, I got curious and looked up the prices on
the Fastenal web site; the 2" washers
are at about $3.50 apiece - so the $1.00
I quoted earlier was a slight understatement.

Re: Fractional Plates worth the money?

I bought six 2_inch I.D. washers at a place called Fastenal for $6.00. They weigh ~ 1.5 lbs.

They are well worth the price...Cheaper than a movie theater ticket, and more lasting fun.
