Hey everyone,

I was turned onto crossfit last year. I was scaling the WOD's but getting through them. I was also training for a triathalon. After the tri, i just kind of took some time off :wink:

I have some friends that are doing crossfit and i really started getting jealous that they were getting into really good shape. So i have been doing the crossfit warmups for the past 3 weeks.

I started this last night:
L1D1: 30 rounds

I don't have a pullup bar, so i am doing pullups using a door.

Wise decision over doing it can be as bad as under doing it. Balance and constancy will yield best results.

James,
As I understand it, that 400 meter run is a sprint, in the crossfit world, isn't it?

hey sam,

you can call it that, although by the 3rd, 4th round, there isn't much sprinting if you know what i mean :lol:

That was a good workout last night, the legs during the squats were on fire, i knew that it was going to tough in the first round.

I am looking for those crossfit workouts that don't require anything but creativity, so i watch the WOD's to see which fits that BILL
