    How to scale today’s WOD, from the CrossFit BrandX forums:
    Big Dawgs-Pack-Puppies
    If you can do a pull up do the above workout. Even if you can only add 5 pounds it will be good for you.
    If you cannot do any pull ups do 5 rounds of 5 beginner pull ups or 5 rounds of 5 assisted pull ups using as little resistance as possible.

    My apologies to Adam M. that his birthday wishes were delayed today. His LSA dining concept is truly revolutionary, 100% paleo, and a major asset to our gym. Read more here:

    Apparently I am a highly decorated, longstanding elite member of the LSA ranks, and I didn’t even know it! I am a progressive though. It’s all well and good to have your L, your S and your A at separate courses. But I am one who strives for the embrace of integration. Why segregate? Separate is not equal. I like my oysters with bacon brunoise with the mignonette. A turkey is much happier when stuffed with venison kielbasa. Butter poached lobster tails, without a wrapping of crispy pan seared prosciutto, are almost not worth eating. A beef tenderloin is just too lean and lonely without a roasted lobe of foie gras riding shotgun. But not everything is lobster and foie gras though. Consider the chicken breast saltimbocca, the bacon cheeseburger, or sausage and eggs. Pork products in general tend to be the great integrators, the every day heroes bringing diversity to the table. So yes, LSA, all the way! But do the right thing, and strive to break down the artificial barriers that have kept all these individually wonderful things from being exponentially better when brought together in harmony.
    5k run – 26:44, almost two minutes off my last time (28:30), without feeling like it was much more effort. And I don’t even have Carlos’ magic Vibrams yet! Very much looking forward to getting the opportunity to do the CFE running clinic. Probably won’t be able to until October-ish. I was jealous of you guys today, wish I could have joined you.

    Chin-ups:
    one with no weight / 5# / 10#f / 7.5#f / 5#f / 5# / 5#f
    Fun to wear weights around my neck. Badass bling.
