Thumbs up CF humour heard/seen at your crossfit gym!

Hello everyone...

I taught Id take this time to not be so serious about crossfitting.

I was wondering if anyone has any humourous CF jokes or seen anything or heard anything funny at their crossfit gym.

Lets make a list, and eventually someone will cull it down to the top 10.

Ill start.

1.Today one of the trainers at my crossfit gym mentioned something about the trainers competing to see who has the best score doing "tabata smiles"...apparently its harder than doing tabata squats and more intense due to the number of muscles in your face.

WOD: "Tabata Smiles"
8 rounds of 20 seconds of smiles, followed by 10 seconds rest.
*smiles must be at full ROM, no partial smiles are counted, so basically you have to smile at full extension/flexion of your facial muscles, when at the top of your smile you can no longer smile more.
edit *oops, almost forgot...your incisors has to show (please scale appropriately if you dont have any)

your score is the lowest reps of smiles at any of the rounds.

please post your score below.

--------------------------------


2. crossfit rumour "some affiliates mix amphetamines in the chalk bucket so when athletes put it on they get more reps/weight/less time in their WOD...thats why its so expensive " but remember this is clearly a joke folks, just say this to get a laugh...or start snorting the chalk that falls on the floor cause its a waste, its funny when somebody else does it

One of the trainers at my gym standing next to the cardboard Dos Equis beer guy "most interesting man in the world".

Re: CF humour heard/seen at your crossfit gym!

I've been training a guy at the gym and after the second session he mentioned something about soon being able to train a friend of his with what he was learning from me... I kinda looked at him and shook my head. "You can't even coordinate an overhead press properly and you're thinking about training others? I don't think so." Some people...

An O-4 AMLO called crossfit "Jehovah's Fitness" in reference to how hard we preach the "gospel" and try to get others to join.

Here's one: do a google video search for "Khalipisms"... I caught myself using a lot of his "cues" coaching our new guys. Watch for "the bacon sizzle." =)
