The Thorax: the forgotten link in human motion.
Now that’s what I call a squat!
Four-time Olympic gold medalist Al Oerter dies at 71.


  • That’s my baby cousin, Adam, though I can’t take credit for his athletic ability. His mom is a yoga teacher and his parents have him doing downward dog and other yoga poses. I can attest that it was so cute to watch him follow Allison’s instructions. Future Crossfit member!!

  • Some quotes from the late, great Al Oerter:
    “As long as I can concentrate and remain somewhat calm, I can normally do very well.”
    “I don’t compete with other discus throwers. I compete with my own history.”
    “I don’t think the discus will ever attract any interest until they let us start throwing them at each other.”
    “I never set out to beat the world. I just set out to do my absolute best.”
    “To exercise at or near capacity is the best way I know of reaching a true introspective state. If you do it right, it can open all kinds of inner doors.”

    Tough workout. Thanks for the strategy Keith.
    I wonder if I would have done the swings from 21 to 15 nonstop if I would have been faster or slower overall. Next time
