If you are interested in buying a speed rope and getting in on a bulk order so you don't nailed with high shipping, read below...Cayce is about to place an order:
"Hey, Everyone! I am going to order speed ropes for anyone who would like one. Tal has ordered some for the gym, but those of you who remember the rant I went on when some special 6am person used mine and broke it (I'm not naming names) will agree that it's best to have your own rope and best to keep it at home until needed. PLUS, my morning classes ROCKED but agreed they could work on double-unders at home for extra practice. So, all you do is put $15 in envelope, in bucket, and put "Thruster Thursday Jump Rope" (because thrusters make anyone BA and because I know a HILARIOUS joke about them...ask me!) by July 2nd and you will get an awesome speed rope. I might can tap into my connections and get your name put on a label to put on the handle FOR FREE or I could carve in your initials with my Swiss army knife scissors...your call. Peace!" - Cayce
Its about to get hotter than 2 rats fuuuu...ehh...its about to get hot. Make sure you are staying hydrated and pouring some water down the main line BEFORE you get to CFS to workout. Start drinking water early, keep a bottle with you throughout the day, steady intake, easy on the coffee/booze and DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE THIRSTY/AT THE GYM TO DRINK. Hydrate or die. RULE OF THUMB: Bodyweight/2 + (20 x # of WODs) = Oz. of H2O per day
Allen competed at the Primal Games on Daniel Island this weekend as part of the Affiliate Team from CrossFit Charleston. They placed 4th out of 20 teams, Allen enjoyed a weekend at the beach, and it seems as though his judge wasn't too hard to look at...win, win, and win.
We are going to start doing a "CFS Weekly Challenge WOD" to push our athletes a little harder, marinate some competitive juices, and have a little fun. ALL CFS ATHELTES can/will participate. Some WODs will be able to be completed by any and all...some won't...some will fall in the middle. The CFS Weekly Challenge WOD will be published on Sunday nights. Athletes will have until the last class on Friday (6PM) to complete the WOD. The WOD must be scored by a trainer AND must be done AFTER the athlete has completed the daily CFS WOD. Winners will be announced Friday night...sometimes there will be a winner's prize pack...sometimes bragging rights are all you win. 3 categories...Male, Female, 40+. Ya'll have some fun with this...talk a little shit in the comments section, make predictions, coordinate a time for you and your arch nemesis to meet up and go head to head, etc.
