CrossFit ATL 2609
The Outlaw, Jason, shows off his CrossFit hands after cutting his previous Fran by half.

Workout of the Day

Three rounds for time of:
21 L-Pull-ups
15 ft. L-rope climb, 3 ascents

Post time to comments.

Our favorite You Tube video. 

Update: Ken Gall is on the front page of the Dirty South CrossFit Games Qualifier website today. Laura DeMarco was up yesterday.  The Dirty South has 3 levels of competition, so everyone who wants to participate can do so, regardless of your fitness level.  There is the individual competition to qualify for the 2009 CrossFit Games.  That's folks like Mike G., Ken G., and others.  Then there is team competition.  As Rx teams require 2 men and 2 women and the workout will be done as prescribed.  Then there is Open, teams of 4, any sexual persuasion, workouts can be scaled.

    CF ATL Ladies’ PJ Party!!
    Hello CF ladies. Laura and I are hosting a CF ladies'(Rob, Laura and I are debating whether I need the apostrophe here…please advise) PJ party tomorrow night (Friday @ 8). Come in your pj’s, bring your favorite beverage, and bring your favorite snack. Margaret has recommended we watch the movie “The Sweetest Thing” because while it is still sort of a chick movie…it is pretty crude (just how we like it). Warning: rated R. Although some suspect we may end up just “chatting” all night.
    If you plan on drinking too much wine feel free to bring your sleeping bag/pillow and we’ll turn this into a slumber party!
    I’m not posting our address on here because Roy will yell at me. Go ahead and email me at bethanie.harsh@gmail.com.
    See you bitches on Friday!

    First, CFATL Men, planning for panty raid at Beth and Laura’s will take place at 19:00 hours tomorrow night at the Pink Pony….Roy can you bring an extra taser for us to use on Beth? One will not cut it with her….
    Last –
    I received this medical tip from a doctor friend; thought it might help you, too.
    If you’re bothered by occasional or frequent
    constipation, repeat the following phrase three times in succession when symptoms occur:
    “My financial and personnel well being are totally in
    the hands of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Tim Geithner, Rahm Emmanual, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, and Al Gore.”
    If that doesn’t scare the crap out of you, then you are probably destined to be full of it for the rest of your life.

    Laura,
    The OPEN TEAMS can be ANY combination of men and women..only the RX’d ones have to be 2 men and 2 women.
    So, come on peeps! Sign up.

    It’s needed. Putting the apostrophe after the s means the PJ party belongs (relates to) multiple ladies. If you omit the apostrophe all together, then you’re just wrong.
    On a different note, how many of the CF ladies at this PJ party are blonde?

    RE the Crossfit Ladies’ PJ Party, if you have a sensitivity to off-color humor (like seeing three women do a muscial montage about various available orafices and the space constraints inherent to the same) you might want to stay home. Just fair warning there, ladies. It’s hilarious, but dirrrty. Yay!
    RE today’s WOD, it is indeed crazy, and by the time the AM trainers got done creating a substitute that one could actually perform, it barely resembled the original so I decided to make up my own workout, as follows: 3rds of 30 thrusters (men’s bar) and 10 HSPU (using the harness contraption and 1 ab mat). 19:48. It was un-fun, to say the least, but all those thrusters should improve my Fran time.

    “I think I crapped my pants” is perhaps my favorite line EVER. I am crying sitting at my desk.

    Like Heidi says below, you can have any combination of men and women on an Open team. You don’t need two men two women.

    I am going to start saying that during workouts.
    Also, just to be clear, it was not the fault of the trainers that the substitute didn’t look like the original, it was clearly the fault of my own weakness. Just wanted to be clear about that so B & B don’t file a hurt feelings report against me. 🙂

    MY GOD! We’ve been overlooking a critical part of our training for years now. Psychadelic genital weight training!

    so, we need one more person for our team. who is in? Also, where is everyone staying and for which days?

    This WOD was terrible.
    17:46 and my L-pullups and L rope climbs were so bad I am not sure you could call it as Rx’d.
    In other news I cannot stand up straight from that GHD thing. No, seriously, I look like a 95 year old man walking around all hunched
    Sincerely,
    Dan

    Got out of work late yesterday, so did “Annie” (50-40-30-20-10 DUs/situps) at home in 11:07. Got out late again tonight, so ended up doing 500m intervals on rowing machine at home. The WOD looks ugly — “can I have some static pullups on top of my static pullups, please?”
    Bethanie, I’m curious about your PJ party:
    1. Will the snacks be paleo? (bacon and red wine… that actually sounds pretty good)
    2. After a few glasses of wine for everyone, will there be a drunken burpee contest?

    3 rounds
    4 HSPU
    8 CTB PU
    12 DL (135#)
    16 BJ 20″
    almost as Rx, I got a few HSPU but starting getting 75% extension and failing, so I counted the fails as reps in rounds 2 and 3.
    17: something
    Is that a real police video?

    17:02 as Rx
    Ken, you look pretty good for a 95-year-old
