Wednesday

WOD
Fran
21-15-9
Thrusters 95/65
Pull-ups

The intent here today is to approach Rx.  So if you can't do the prescribed weight, use a weight you can do for 5-6 reps.

Watch Spealer tear through Fran in this video from the archives.  He was the first person to do butterfly pull-ups; people doubted that it could be done with a straight pull-up bar.  Now all CrossFit Games competitors do them.  This was when CrossFit Park City was just a couple of friend working out in a globo gym.

Here's a cool video, an ad for Adidas and CrossFit.

General Adaptation Syndrome
1) stressor

When the gym looks like this at 5:30 am, and there's one in the restroom by the way,
then:
2) Adaptation

the gym has to grow more mats to compensate.

I've heard this also applies to the Human body in that consistently doing CrossFit WODS and lifting force the body to look, feel, and function better.  Let me know if this works.
