In case you forgot, you are awesome!

This seems to be a topic to keep popping up lately, so I’m writing to remind you that what you do is amazing.

If you were lucky??? enough to attend Saturday’s workout you had the opportunity to complete

7X of
100M run
4 Handstand Pushups
6 Cleans at 185lbs/105lbs
8 Deadlifts at 185lbs/105lbs
10 Bar Jump Overs

I’ll use the Men’s RX math for you.
So let’s say you are a 185 lb male doing rx in this workout. In somewhere between 17 and 30 minutes you performed the following
You ran just under 1/2 mile
You moved your own bodyweight in a handstand 28 times for a total of 5,180 lbs
You cleaned your bodyweight 42 times for a total of 7,770 lbs
You deadlifted your bodyweight 56 times for a total of 10,360 lbs
And you completed 140 lateral hops over an approximately 7″ target

So in a timeframe somewhere between 17 and 30 minutes you moved a total of 23,310 lbs. Just over a 11 tons. Pause….
Holy Crap!

Just in case all the kick-ass women are wondering, you moved 14,350 lbs in the same time frame. 7 tons. RIDICULOUS!

If someone told you “Hey I have 30 minutes I need you to move 11 tons for me”, you’d ask them what kind of crack they were smoking. Apparently it’s the Crossfit Kind.

A friendly reminder from Uncle D – you are awesome!
