Why Strength?

Why be strong?  As Mark Rippetoe says, “Strong people are harder to kill than weak people, and generally more useful.”

Strong people being more useful is certainly the case in this video as these people SAVED this man’s life using their functional strength.

The victim made it to the hospital and sustained only minor burns and some broken bones thanks to the people in this video.  WOW!  CrossFit, being strong and fit for life and its unknowns.

It was you versus the burpees in this WOD.

The post WOD recovery position pretty much tells the story.

And who’s going to get their first kipping pull-up tomorrow?  Dave and Nadia can help you out.  Watch this video here.
