My brother, Kevin, has challenged me to give CrossFit a try. Those of you that know my brother, know that our genetic makeup is completely different (Same parents – way different bodies and minds). Kevin has always been a big dude – I am longer and lankier. He was a state champion wrestler in high school and got into body building in college. Well after college, he slowly started gaining weight. Last year he has bigger than he wanted to be so he started doing CrossFit. He was ripped again in no time. I think he lost 30 pounds in the last 90 days. The best I can describe CrossFIt is a lot of full body movement with heavy items. Check out this video. Kevin is the front guy doing the dumbbell pushups press exercise and he is the last guy in the video doing lunges with the slosh pipe – big pipe half full of water – hard to keep balanced. Watching Kevin is a little intimidating. I will be doing lunges with a garden hose empty and will probably be crying like a baby. I think I am going to go for a free trial run next week. I want to do a 90 day routine and see what it does to me. Three years ago I was doing triathlon’s, now I just run and bike half heartedly. I need something new to get me motivated. I’ll let you know how it goes. Team Circus will also get the challenge to join me – you know who you are.
Have any of you tried CrossFit?
Any other suggestions to get me exercising again?
