Workout of the Day
Front Squats and Pull-ups!
I have had this same discussion with different people more times than I wish to calculate: some uninformed jerk says, “CrossFit is dangerous, [insert poorly researched CrossFit rumor here]”, me “Lots of things are dangerous, hell driving to work could get you killed. ‘Safe’ fitness gets you no where, so if you want real results you have to risk a little.”
There have been no significant injuries in our gym in the four years we’ve been in business, ever (save one achilles injury).
Ya wanna know why people get injured doing CrossFit? Hubris. Let that ego you’ve been stroking your whole life get in the way of the learning process and you’ll lead yourself to injury, guaranteed. Those who succeed in our program, those who repeatedly brag to friends about being “in the best shape of their life” are those who are willing to re-learn the basics, then learn them again, and again.
If you’re one of those people who are willing to learn, if you’re the kind of person who wants to improve at the cost of immediate gratification, CrossFit is your program.
