Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Hey Ladies!

Great thread...

Wanted to post a link to 2 very inspiring videos featuring our CrossFit Oldtown Women and this seemed the place!

We hit Fran and 2 of our women chose to go with 95lb thrusters!

I hope it inspires;

Katie with 90lb thrusters

Andrea with 95lb

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

This has nothing to do with Crossfit but I am BACK FROM CHINAAAAAA. And about to start school tomorrow. I'm in a general state of excitement + jet lag + carbs. Seriously though, I caught the standby flight today so I wasn't prepared at all (my flight was originally tomorrow) and I like almost starved to death on the plane b/c I didn't want to eat anything, (pretzels or ramen noodles/lemon cookie...) and then I had to wait like 3 hours for a connecting flight from Oakland to Claremont and I ended up buying a pastrami sandwich and almost threw up.

Aaaanyway, I hope I can sleep tonight, because I have tests tomorrow. Plan to test my CFT if I get a chance too. Hope it hasn't dropped too much. Kbye.

Oh, and I did pistols and pushups on the plane. Earned a few stares for those. Though the pistols weren't freestanding, because the plane isn't exactly steady.

I'd like to think i'd be brave enough to do that - I did some burpees in the baggage claim a week or so ago - but there weren't very many people there. My mom still just about died :

Melissa B., thanks much for the shin splint link. It has some good stuff that I am going to try.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Re: the Fran video- what strikes me is that these people are moving some serious weight, and yet.... no bulging muscles. In fact, I would say from the video (emphasis) that they appear to be just ordinary women, not exceptionally fit looking. However, they are obviously incredibly fit!
I've noticed that with many of the woman I see- that they are incredibly fit, but don't have the appearance of muscle I would think goes with their strength.
Good...bad..or indifferent...I think it depends on each person's personal likes.

Re: Where's the Girl Power?

Camille - I thought the exact same thing while being amazed at those pullups! And it should satisfy any of those women out there who think that moving that much weight will cause them to bulk up!
