Crossfit: Making Healthy People Look Old

I thought I had to share this. It's Wednesday morning and I carpool to work with a 65 y.o. man named Chris. I'd been doing 5x5 squats (80,90,100,110,120) on Monday night and was still sore today, as 5x120 is my PB and I nearly got there.

Getting out of the car once we got to work, Chris noted that I was having trouble and offered to help me. Standing up has been a chore after 5x5 squats.

Thanks Crossfit for helping old people have pity on my growing pains

The difference is that when DOMS disappears your new self will be better than your old self. Not the other way around with normal folks.
