The Sickness

Welcome to Friday, approximately 6:20am.



There are 20 people in this workout-machine. All could have been at home snug in bed, still cozy before the work-day ahead...instead, they've chosen to rise and, at least for a while, suffer.

What kind of sickness infects those crazy team 6ers?



If you happen to see Carl, slap him on the back and ask him about his HUGE Fight Gone Bad PR he set at the Crossfit Level 1 Certification this weekend. Musta been his studying...



We've also received a shipment of new toys. Behold the bevy of beauteous barbells:



Don't hit that snooze,

Hi everyone. Quick question, unrelated to Adrian's post. (Props for hella tight alliteration at the end, though.) Why are workouts of the sort we did yesterday callled "chippers"? Is it that the pieced-together quality of the workout gives an impression that the workout itself is made out of other workouts that have gone through a woodchipper? Or is it that such workouts are so gnarly that, upon finishing one, you yourself feel as though you've gone through a woodchipper? Or is it a bit of both, or something else entirely?

Etymologically, rkn

I would say its the latter and the following. Basically you are "chipping away" at the exercises that you are doing and then you do not come back to them.

Yes.

For the optimists, a chipper is more like cutting down a large tree...you chip away until the bastard falls. For the 'half-empty' crowd, being put through the chipper will work.
