CrossFit comes to the Supreme Pro Wrestling Training Academy

So, since December, myself (a student at the Academy) and CJ (one of the trainers) have been using CrossFit to supplement our fitness program. We've were joined by Tim (another of the trainers) from January on, and various other wrestlers from time to time. The other students, by and large, have avoided CrossFit after we described some of the workouts. Their loss, not ours.
CJ and I have talked on and off about possibly applying a CrossFit approach to some of the exercise the Academy does. Last night he decided to introduce a CrossFit-style competition to the cardio program...Death by Burpee.
If you don't recognize the name, it's just the minute-by-minute progression exercise applied to burpees. 1 burpee the first minute, 2 burpees the second minute, 3 burpees the third minute, etc.
That went on for 13 minutes before the last student dropped out.
Hooray for CrossFit! I'm hoping to see more of these exercises as we go on...
