It's only logical that some people will start training L-sit holds over hot coals in preparation for the Games ... for time & points.

Unknown & Unknowable, right?

It would be cool to tune in to the free live webcast (until it becomes a PPV in the very near future) and see tigers come out of the stadium corners like in Gladiator.

Yeah, or sharks with lasers on their heads. That would be pretty awesome. L-Sit for time. Death before DNF

[combined.

Andrew,

Is this true? You can snatch 95, run a mile in 5:13 and pull 400lbs 3x?

Oh I found another gem:

Now the media is recommending you workout to throw up. When will it stop?

My goal for this year is break 500 on the deadlift, run sub 5 mile, probably too much of a goal and unrealistic but I'm going to throw down into oblivion. It's quite a heavy goal, being the mile is so sensitive to jump 20-40 seconds if you're too sore and broken down from weightlifting and the deadlift has the potential to slow down your running. I'll video tape, put it in frame by frame it, and upload it online once I get a camera. Right now my sister has my camera and have no money to buy a new one.


CrossFit should go ahead and throw their people in front a stampede of buffalo to improve their 5k time.
That is impressive capacity across broad time and modal domains. I do not know too many CrossFit athletes that can do both snatch 95 and run a mile in under 5:30.

How tall are you? About 66inches? How often do you run? What distances? Are you mainly doing track work? How do you break down your intervals?

I ask because I have the lofty goal of snatching over 100 (I am at 95 now), and at the same time, being able to run a mile in under 6 (probably 7min now). I just feel being able to do this proves I have an increased capacity over broad time and modal domains rather then just kidding myself that I have some new found capacity, when in reality I just became better at doing certain exercises. Thanks.
