Go Ruck

January 03, 2016

** If you are going to do the Whole Life Challenge (CrossFit Oakdale Team) sign up tonight to get the early bird special. Price goes up tomorrow. Meeting January 6th at 7:30pm.**

Cool video from the CrossFit Journal.  Owen is a CrossFit Sav-Up athlete and I have met him in the Pappas’ garage and as a medic in the CrossFit Games qualifiers.  He an intense dude, sildenafil and it’s cool to see him in this video.  We see Sav-Up and Hercules CrossFit in this video – friends of CrossFit Oakdale all.  Now, before you even ask – I have ZERO interest in participating in GoRuck, or anything like it.  I have humped a ruck or 2 in my day, and I’m not looking to play again.  If this looks like fun, CrossFit is a great way to get prepared.  Now, just because I don’t want to do this doesn’t mean it doesn’t have value.  The folks are working their asses off and are learning a ton about life in a grueling test.

GoRuck aside, there are a TON of real world CrossFit, nay life lessons, in this video.  Regular people, – teachers, fire fighters, office workers, soldiers – talking about hard work, longevity, focus, complacency, pride, honesty.  It’s a beautiful CrossFit video and a great representation of the lifestyle.

In the next week, we will test the Clean and Jerk, the Snatch and Back Squat.  Only thing – we will be testing these lifts AFTER our conditioning work.
