CrossFit ATL 3989 Jenni shows some typical effects of intensity.  A willingness to push hard and suffer in the present in return for a future reward is a selection mechanism in CrossFit, and Coach Glassman thinks it is also an indication of character,  “So much of repugnant behavior is about trying to get something for
nothing, and the CrossFitters inherently don’t believe that it’s
possible.”  See his interview in the CrossFit Journal.

Below, a picture of some adhesive tape that managed to wrap itself around the wheel of the seat roller on one of our rowers.  This is but one of many reasons why leaving adhesive tape laying about is a "Flogging Offense".  This piece has been sent to the Crime Lab for DNA analysis.CrossFit ATL 3991

    I need some recovery time after yesterday, which was my third day in a row anyway, so today’s a rest day for me.
    On a different note, a lot of you have asked about what I do as an industrial designer. It’s a very wide field of design and can sometimes be difficult to explain. I just finished updating my portfolio and thought I would share it with you guys to clear up the confusion. Enjoy:

    That has Ken Gall written all over it.
    He is a taping fool and has no respect for our equipment.

    Riep is right. I also put a penny on the track in the hopes it would stall the seat and vas would go flying off again backwards like the time he tried to do a one legged row. I laughed so hard I dropped my weight on OHS (which at the time I think was probably 35#).
    vas, I’m gonna have to do this one when I get back. You are going DOWN!
    Jeff, impressive portfolio. Some really cool designs in there…

    I didn’t know you were a fellow Bearcat, Jeff! Don’t meet many of those down south…
    Great portfolio, by the way!

    That is awesome news about getting CFATL on Beyond the Whiteboard! I’m going to sign up tonight.
    Love the CSI-Atlanta picture of the tape in the roller. Ken, you should have argued that the damper setting of “10” wasn’t high enough and you were just trying to make it a little harder. Or possibly that it wasn’t you, but you did see the culprit — it was that guy (or possibly girl) who is always doing pull-ups with his/her hands taped. That narrows it down quite a bit.

    Thanks a lot guys. Marie, could you please relay your sentiments to Reebok? Maybe they’ll hire me the next time around.

    Big thanks to Dan for taking care of the bill for Beyond the Whiteboard! Definitely wasn’t necessary but nonetheless appreciated.

    Nate Rx
    13 rounds.
    To all of you who beat me:
    I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I don’t even know you, but I hate you. I hate your guts. I hope all the bad things in life happen to you and only to you.
    Now, if you’ll excuse me. I’m gonna go put water in Rob’s Mama’s dish.

    Nate Rx: 9 rounds.
    I could have done more if I could have kept my hands drier. I lost my false grip on the way up and cursed at the rings on the way down several times. HSPUs and KBSs unbroken. I really like this workout.

    “Nate”, with HSPUs scaled to one ab-mat, 6 rounds + 1 muscle-up.
