On the Road...Deep South

As a Crossfitter you are equipped with the tools to create a world-class training facility wherever you happen to find yourself. I've been in South Georgia helping to train instructors at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Crossfit Methodology. Despite the crazy humidity that hits you like a wet-blanket every time you step outside, I managed to rope another trainer into a little fun at the pool Tuesday evening.

Here's our gym:







I see a great little lap pool, a stellar spot for some handstand pushups and an L-sit station to die for. What do you see?

Our workout was simple:

Three lengths of the pool
5 handstand pushups
15 Squats

Max rounds in 15min.

Our Reward:





BBQ, by the way, is one of the easiest zone-fits out there...a little protein and fat(smoked meat) a little carbohydrate (greens and baked beans) and you're good to go. On the road or not, there's no excuse to not get the job done!!

See you back on the West (Best ;) Coast,

-Boz

Chuck and I both lost count...I think it was 8 or 9rnds. The swimming devolved into "slapping" the water...I was just happy to not get kicked out!

Only thing that comes to mind is...pool party.
The Police academy here in Jax has a pool on site.
Glad to see you're enjoying the East Coast. The Right Coast.

I went to memphis minnies last week for the first time and thought the pork was a bit dry compared to roadside.

Supposedly there's a place in Lafayette called Bo's BBQ that is really great too. Who's up for a road trip?

Glad to see you survived the Georgia humidity Adrian. After you trained them, did they offer to show you some of what they do there?

Drake's Place looks like a "Deliverance" set piece. Rad. Squeal.

Every once and a while I'll take a 15 lb pork shoulder and smoke it on my grill overnight for 15 hours. And drink bourbon on the deck while I do it. I'm a pulled-pork snob (NC-style), and it's the best I've had. So next time I come to CF stinking like hickory, booze and pig, you'll know why.

Anytime you guys want to have a BBQ, let me know.

mike i think we need to hang out more....

Nick said...

I was thinking the same thing. Next time you want to drink and cook meat let me know.

Done. Let's figure out a weekend. July 4 would be a good one.
