Don’t forget to sign up for the Open! Monday will be a 9 am only day, with the assigning of teams after class.
This is one of my(Alison) favorite WOD’s. Long workout…chipping away…you can blame me. Check out this post from 2014.
We’ve done today’s WOD, “Jonesworthy” before. It’s not a great Open prep – I don’t really think we’ll see KBS or air squat (well maybe air squats), and pullups will likely be chest to bar. But every WOD doesn’t have to be a prep for something else, sometimes it just is what it is. This one is tough conditioning and a grip smoker.
Jonesworthy appeared on CrossFit.com in 2004 – it’s nearly 10 years old! I’ve attached the comments page – some of the questions are funny, even if we hear the same ones 10 years later. Like, “didn’t we just do this?” or “pullups again?”
Greg Glassman, whose comments handle was Coach, even posted Greg Amundson’s crazy time in the comments section. OG!
Not to get all sado-masochist-ey on you, but comment #49 has a quote from Mark Twight. Twight opened Gym Jones and was a world class rock climber before falling in, then out, with CrossFit. Twight went on to train to actors for 300 and Superman in Man of Steel.
“Enjoy the suffering it’s what you signed up for.”
