While I was admiring my particularly overpriced new pants this morning, I bent to pick up one of my many children and my lovely spouse says “make sure you wear dark underwear with those pants”.  DAMN IT!  My new favorite pants had fallen victim to the horrible “will show all your business when on stretch” syndrome.  There are very few pants that can hold up to full squats and deadlifts, but there are some.  Now this is not to terrify you or make you overly self concious about the dreaded pant thinning that occurs all too often, it’s just to make you aware of the situation.  Do a check in the mirror if you think your pants might be coming down with this syndrome.  If they fall victim too, here are some options: 1. don’t worry about it, what does it really matter?  2. wear hilarious underwear like one of our very strong ladies (she wears underwear that say STOP STARING)  3.  Wear the same color underwear.  4.  Buy thicker pants.  More expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better, just look at my new fancy pants I had today.  They are still cute though and I don’t really care anyway!  (please know that this post was much funnier and more graphic, but I was shut down by HR)

Friday’s WOD:

Strength/Skill:  3×5 Ring Dips then 10 Muscle Ups transitions.  No more than 10 mins on this.


“Sean” (hero WOD from crossfit.com)

11 Chest to Bar Pull Ups

22 Front Squats (wt: 35/25kg)

*The full WOD is 10 Rounds.  Here are your choices: 5 Rounds, 7 Rounds, 0r the full but your cutoff will be 35mins.  If you choose to do chest to bar pull ups, do chest to bar pull ups.  I see people come an inch away from the bar and call it good.  It’s not about the height entirely, it’s about getting that last bit of pull to touch your chest on the bar.  So, to clarify, your body will make actual contact with the bar.  Some of you who can usually do kipping pull ups will need to use a band to complete full chest to bar pull ups.  Really challenge yourself!

This is a serious epidemic. Thank you for this very important and frightening alert. Of people want more on this issue, I’m more than happy to give my point of view.

Yet ONE MORE reason squats are evil.
