    Greg is right....kb thrusters are probably my least favorite exercise...but I knew that going in to this. I finished in around 6:50 or so, I don't remember writing down my time...

    I love the CrossFit Journal. So much good information there for so cheap! Great WOD today. Used 35lb KBs... whew, those are brutal! I also went ahead and made the pullups Chest-to-Bar. I think it makes a significant difference in difficulty, energy output, and time. They were tough after those thrusters. Finished in 3:18. I love working out in the morning.

    The article on weight loss (this one and the one it referances) is silly. Fat loss is simple math. If you are eating exactly the same and up your exercise you will do one of 3 things: loose weight, stop gaining weight, or slow your weight gain. You will not continue to gain at the same pace you were when you sat on your couch and did nothing. The assumption that your calorie intake will go up with the start of an exercise program is just stupid. Of course if you diet too you will loose more fat. It is simple, you must take in 3500 calories above what you are burrning to gain a lb of fat. Just don't eat more than you burn and you will be fine.

    stayed at 265 for squats x 3 wod: did 44#, trying to heal for my race on sunday. Between my left wrist, shoulders and lower back I think 52 would have been asking for some sort of injury. So, since I slacked on the weight, I did the wod twice.....2.44 first time and 4.23 second time.....My arms and legs are still shaking...beat down! I don't have a subscription to the crossfit journal....don't have a good reason why
