For a couple of weeks we will be following CrossFit.com workouts, starting with their post from January 27th, with a little of our own skill and strength work added in . Why are we doing this? Why not? CrossFit.com posts a variety of workouts that are both fun and challenging. This is original CrossFit. This is how Shelby and I started back in late 2007. It is good to go back to our roots ever so often. Each day I will post a link to the original CrossFit.com posting so you can read through the hundreds of comments from people all over the world who follow the workouts and post their times. See how you stack up to others and while you are their take some time to read through CrossFit.com and all of the valuable information they have on the site.
