    My time in NC is coming to an end. It's been great training with you all. Tony, Darren and Josh, I appreciate the advice you all have given me. I will take what I've learned from you guys with me to CA. For everyone else, keep excelling.

  2. I'm elite too! says:

    Elitism is relative… it's simply defined by Webster's as: the best of a group. So if I can lift more than the other members of my Chess club, then I can call myself elite! If you've never been part of anything really elite then you can just call yourself that. Saaaaweet!!!

    Steve-o steve-o where you at? In the rack gettin nasty and fat…jump up, buckle up, and shuffle to the door jump right out and shout CrossFit! A little motivation for ya,

  4. t. says:

    I talked to Steve and confirmed… he is alive. Cut him some slack, his sister was in town and wouldn't let him workout.

    Hey Guys and Gals, just a note here to tell everyone our brothers Joel and Tony will be leaving us for a few weeks, and I turn 43 on Sunday. So I asked Tony to put together a ass-kicking, gut busting send me home crying workout to send them off, and to punish me for being a very bad boy. So, I'm asking everyone to come on in and send these guys off right. Oh and also to be punished with me for being old……Don

  7. Justin says:

    I don't think anyone at the CrossFit Games that finished in the top 20 could have hit an Elite CrossFit total (and only a few could hit advanced). Meaning, that category kind of inflates what is really practical for a well-rounded athlete as of today. If you hit those numbers, you'd be on par with elite powerlifters, and I don't know any elite powerlifters than can run a sub-6 mile or do a sub-3 "Fran." So, to those of you that are Advanced, congrats, you're at the top of the strength category compared to other CrossFitters.

  8. Hub says:

    I'm glad you said that Justin, those numbers seemed impossible to obtain. My goal is to get to advanced, which is only about another 200 or so pounds, but to add another 600 pounds would be impossible…with out some vitamin S.

  9. Justin says:

    Just saw Joel and Tony are leaving. Do you guys have a definitive return date? Good luck over there. Stay safe.

  10. Shawn K says:

    Justin, my goal is to make the top tier in the next 12-24 months which means an additional 200 cumulative pounds. As long as they don't add running as a 4th category I may just be able to make it 🙂

  11. Shawn K says:

    Allow me to preempt the comments from the peanut gallery (Raja/Tony) concerning my supposedly wisp-like frame and bodyweight…

  12. Shawn K says:

    Justin, I'm on my way with CFT and Fran… now if I could only run the length of the driveway without wanting to die… I guess I should start working on that too… *sob*

  13. t. says:

    We had quite a few advanced in the total. While I was at the Oly cert this weekend I talked with Coach B. and Chris(CF Chesapeake owner)about our programming. They both have world and nat'l level athletes, and they use the oly/power lift first, then a met con type CF wod. Theres no doubt in my mind (b/c it worked for me and now so many of the CFW athletes too) that our programming makes for CFers that are stronger/more powerful and just as good at metcon WOD as most CFers.

  14. Justin says:

    Yeah, I don't doubt you can make it Shawn. I'm just saying that there's hundreds of elite powerlifters. I don't know of any person that can hit an elite total and also hit elite times on most of the metcons. If you can do that, you'll be one of the first.

  15. Andrew says:

    Justin, your comments are a bit off. Having an Elite CFT doesn't put you even with Elite PLers as far as overall absolute strength. Yes, both are impressive but the strength level requirements are far different when looking at PLing. The CFT is designed for those who are doing something other than lifting for strength. Take an Elite level PLer and he'll total elite on the CFT far easier than the reverse. I agree with you about the Elite level PLer not doing great on any metcons, but that's the price you pay to be great at any one thing.

  16. Sean says:

    I do agree with Justin, but come one guys, who really cares. We Cfer's put up some great numbers regardless of how you look at it. Everyone should be proud of themselves, I know I am. And we should strive to put up better numbers next time. I'm not yet the best I can be at CrossFit, nor am I trained in the deadlift or other slow lifts, but I am proud of what I did and it will only motivate me to better myself in every aspect of the garage training regiment. You guys all did great, give yourselves pats on the back instead of arguing how accurate the charts are. Good jobs everyone!

  17. Justin says:

    Oh, yeah, I wasn't arguing about the charts being inaccurate. My point is that there is probably literally nobody that can post up the CF times as some of you guys and also total advanced. Not to say that you shouldn't keep improving, but CFW has a lot of the strongest CrossFitters of any gym I know of.

  18. Justin says:

    I meant total elite. Damn I've replied to this one a lot. I'm starting to look like Aaron haha.

  19. mat i. says:

    This was one of the hardest WODs I've done here at CFW. Don't know why but it was. I almost had to pull over on my way home….I really felt like I shouldn't have been driving!! By the way, I got a PR on deads yesterday! Just goes to show that even though we train for endurance more than pure strength it works.

  20. Raja says:

    Mat, I usually stay in the gym until my system goes back to near normal, some of those high intensity workouts; like today's, could really shock your system, and you need sometime to recover afterwards.
