    Guten Tag!
    Good morning from Frankfurt Germany. Let me just say Germany is not a Zone friendly city, there are carbs everywhere.
    Take Care!

    You know we are doing more than pullups, so I better see everyone…

    I want to make sure I have a spot for the Elements W.Shop, when it starts up next month (Class B). Should I sign up for 1 month on your Paypal system and then the rest in person ? I can just come by and pay the whole thing, which ever is easier.
    I want to go through the elements W. shop so I can train at CF NYC. I also have the intention of becoming a CF trainer. I realize I will have to get the Cert at CF HQ. I’m looking to make a living at this, should I get a Personal training certification such as Ace or NASM as well ? Any advice would be appreciated.

    BW = 149 (45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75(PR))

    Tabata Squats: 19.
    Should have done 20 or something. Was stopping a few seconds before the time was up most rounds.
    Weighted Pull-ups
    8kg (pull-up)
    12kg (pull-up)
    16kg (chin-up)
    20kg (chin-up) failed
    16kg + 5lb (chin-up) failed
    16kg + 2 1/2 (chin-up) GOT IT easy First time with weighted pull-ups so this is a PR
    Yesterdays WOD
    Press 70, 75, 77, 79, 80 (PR by 5)
    Push Press 80, 95, 105, 110, 110 turned into more of a jerk at the end
    Push Jerks 110, Can’t find the card and my memory is fuzzy
    next set either stayed at 110 or went to 115- either way I got 3 then failed and almost killed myself. The barbell went backwards
    3rd and final set- 95 x 5 CAKE
    1rm push jerk is 120. Silly trying to do 10 pounds off that for 5. Oh well. I’ll be able to do it next time around.
    Had to rush out for a Training session with Erik Owings. Good times. It’s good to mix it up ;)!
    Worked on my snatch a little. Took the swing out and worked on hand to hand KB snatches. Much harder than the swing.
    Lunges, played with the power clean blah blah. Fun fun.
    I wish I could live in a gym.

    Alex- live to eat or eat to live-when u travel abroad u should enjoy the food where you are without stressing too much. The box is here waiting for you. Safe travels!

  • AllisonNYC

    I like when we try to imitate the BarTendaz. Good Timez!
    Jeff you freaking crack me up. You really know how to put on a show.
    I think you guys all have potential. I’ll work on my cycling pull-ups and typewriters and we’ll try to get in the crew.
    I bet Brian D would kill it.

    Michelle, Moon makes the most amazing oatmeal cookies so I wouldn’t worry about broccoli. Besides, I got a roll of quarters…he knows better.
    You guys missed a great party…pictures to follow! But FYI-Erica cleans up real well! I guess we got another blonde bombshell at the Box.
    I would also like to take a moment of silence for Owl Girl…………………….

  • sarena

    Our thoughts and prayers are with owl girl for safe travels to the other side…

  • sarena

    Keith, I liked the link a lot about moving the weights etc but dont agree fully since based on his thoughts IF isnt a valid nutritional program yet many of us know that to be different!!

    Hi Joseph: Welcome to The Black Box.
    Personaly I wouldn’t worry about NASM or anything like that. Unless you want to train in a globogym. They can require certs like that.
    If you’re looking to become a Level 1 Crossfit trainer you won’t have to go to Santa Cruz. That’s only for Level II.. You can pick any of the locations for Level I but they sell out VERY quickly.
    Some of the BEST weekends of my life have been at the certs and in Crossfit gyms. I’ve been to 3 certs and I’m going to the POSE cert next month and the OLY cert soon. If you have any other questions about them I’ll be happy to talk to you.
    Look forward to meeting you

    Court- I’ve been getting a bazillion e-mails from CrossFitters everyday. I try to respond to all of them and answer any questions the best I can. I got one today from a guy asking a question about KBs but I figured you’d be better able to answer it-
    He’s looking for a KB with a smooth, thick, small handle. What brand would you recommend?
    Do you have a favorite brand even if it’s not exactly what he described?
