Hello everyone,

I have been a lurker here for many months, but only have recently started doing the WOD's on a regular basis. I wanted to start posting my results in order to commit myself to doing the WOD as posted everyday.

My training situation is a bit unique, as I attend a service academy. I don't get much sleep, have little to no choice in what I eat (mostly high-carb stuff), and have very little time to workout. But I love CrossFit and plan to be as diligent as I can in doing the WOD's.

So, thanks for the site and the terrific message boards. I look forward to getting to know each of you better.

Brad

Hey Brad. Glad to see you've joined the ranks. I am a class of 02' service academy alumni and picked up CF from a Navy SEAL buddy a few months back. Depending on what service you plan to join upon graduation, let me tell you that there is no better program out there to get you ready for the fleet (or whatever you want to call it). You won't get to looking like a huge meat head like most of the guys who hang out in academy gyms (myself previously being one of them), but you'll definitely end up being a much better overall athlete who can actually apply his strength to real world activities. Anyway ... that's my take on things ;) Hope all goes well for you with CF and remember that I used to HTFP also.

Sean

Mike,

Sure am! I learned O-lifts from a coach there who we used to call "Chainsaw". Maybe it's the same guy as your friend, but I wouldn't know ... he was only "Chainsaw" to us. He was a huge guy, bald head, ex-paratrooper I think. Either way, please let Kirk know that there are Academy guys out there hooked on CF ... and I'm getting more of them addicted as we speak.

Sean

Hey all like Jason I've been luking around the site for a while but, I have been posting on the board. Loving this site and the daily challenge of completing these WOD's. Being a firefighter this has increased my endurance and strength better than anything else I have ever done. Lots of guys on the job are doing this as well.
See ya later and can't wait to meet some of you soon at an up coming seminar or sumtin.
