Re: Good vacuum for stall mat floors?

Chris, would you say that the hoover vac that you use works well? I have tried a similar type of vaccum in the past and while it was o.k. it took forever. I went back to mopping but that is also very...

Re: 20-day 'cindy' challenge (+1 rnd a day) Oct. 6th

I decided to wrap this challenge up by doing the regular Cindy WOD. I got 25 rounds in 20 minutes. That was a 3 round PR for me. I am so happy this is finally over. However, i'll probably give it...

Re: 20-day 'cindy' challenge (+1 rnd a day) Oct. 6th

Re: First Muscle Up!! Followed by many more.

Robert- Yeah I was thinking that right afterwards. I'm tempted to try it tomorrow. It will be nice not to have to do the 4:1 pullups and dips sub anymore.

First Muscle Up!! Followed by many more.

I have been doing Crossfit for about 10 months now and during that time I have only attempted a muscle up twice. I just kind of thought I would never be able to do them. The two times I tried them I...

Re: rubber olympic weights/bars

I just bought bumpers from the garage gym store for a great price and they offered free shipping. Very hard to beat that. Crossfit San Diego has a link to the store on their site.
