Re: Let's revamp the CF Warmup

One of my biggest downfalls is not doing a warmup regularly. I acknowledge it and have made a conscious effort to start warming up before every WOD. Usually it consists of working the movements that are prevalent in the WOD.

At my cert, Robbie Miller took us through a warmup we dubbed "Invisible Fran," using a brookstick for the thrusters and mimicking kipping pull-ups with the stick in our hands. It was a pretty good WU for our WOD: 20 min of 15 95-lbs thrusters, 10 pull-ups, and ~200meter run.

I've been wanting to try the Burg WU for some time now, and I think this thread will be a good motivator to give it a whirl.
