Well, year and a few weeks. Been going 2-3 times a week to Claymore Crossfit and I have to say, I have had a blast. Cardio has improved, lifts have gone up, all round fitness has increased. And I have to credit it with some other benefits to my life.
Here's to another year of Crossfit!
Like this improvised tool made from a bit of stiff wire. Holds the chain so a portion of it is slack enough to work with the master link.
Idea from Tony Marchand.
Look at the WOD, think to yourself "that looks easy, no bother." Halfway through the WOD, you reconsider. Finish up, you are humbled by the weight.
Just a quick note to say my GPG public key has been updated. Same fingerprint and key ID but I added an authentication subkey.
Also, I am in the process of migrating to a hardware token for increased security so my keychain will be completely regenerated at some point, once I have ironed out all the kinks and done some more research. Will keep you posted.
Listen, Genos. You just have to keep doing it. No matter how hard it gets. It took me three years to get this strong.
One hundred push-ups! One hundred sit-ups! One hundred squats! Then a 10km run! Every single day!
And of course, make sure you eat three meals a day. Just a banana in the morning is fine. But the most important thing is to never use the A/C or heat in the summer or winter so that you can strengthen the mind. In the beginning, you'll wish you were dead. You might start thinking what't the harm of taking a day off? But for me, in order to be a strong hero, no matter how tough it was, even if I was spitting blood, I never stopped. I kept doing squats even when my legs were so heavy they refused to move. Even when my arms started making weird clicking noises, I kept doing push-ups.
A year and a half later, I started to notice a difference. I was bald...and I had become stronger!
In other words, you gotta train like hell to the point where your hair falls out. That is the only way to become strong.
