Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.

— Maya Angelou


Wednesday is “Ladies’ Night” here in Brooklyn, but that doesn’t mean men aren’t invited. Everyone’s welcome to come down and test their luck with one of CrossFit‘s special “Girls.” The Girl workouts are benchmarks which we use to test our athletes and measure our results against other CrossFitters around the world.

Why girl names? Coach Glassman says, “Anything that leaves you flat on your back looking up at the sky asking ‘WTF happened to me?’ deserves a female name.” Adjust your expectations accordingly!

Ladies’ Night
21, 15, 9 reps for time of:
Deadlifts, 225lbs
Handstand Push-ups

    Sorry for the confusion – today’s workout is Diane! 🙂

  6. JoshC says:

    isn’t it a rule if you are the showcased member for the month you have to come down everyday and lift the heaviest weight?

  7. James says:

    ooh…sorry, I’ll miss today, but tomorrow, I am coming back fresh and I’ll lift as much as I can, maybe more! Also, I nominate JoshC as athlete of the month for November 😉

  8. JoshC says:

    im not ready for the big red kettle bell! It would be tough to follow you at the thrown anyway
