    Hey Thomas, once you get things settled with the new gym let me know. I'd love to head over and do a workout if we can get a time that works. I get to be a bachelor for the month of July (wife and kids are in California) so I have more free time than normal.

    Today's metcon
    400m run w/16lb medicine ball.
    25 wall balls 20lb 10'
    400m sled drag 175lbs
    200m farmer walk 53lb kbs'
    12:10

    The sled fuked me up. I had to take 4 brakes on the Farmer walk which is unacceptable I should be able to do that with only one brake. I should be able to do this sub 11. I will re try this one in a couple weeks.

    Looks like your facility provides a good amount of flexibility. Primarily a crossfit?

    Thanks Guys.

    I suck at high rep box jumps so I wanted to get some practice in.
    30" box 10 reps every minute on the minute. The first 6 round I did 10 last 4 I did 8.
