In the spirit of the 2010 CrossFit Games Hawaii Sectionals, to begin tomorrow at CrossFit Oahu, we will attempt a sampling of the skill sets and events the athletes will perform this weekend. Coach Kaye will be judging at the games and needs to hone in on her strict adherence to the judging guidelines!
Todays WOD will include:
Pull ups, box jumps, double unders and deadlifts. We’ll save the one legged squats, handstand push ups, rope climbs, 135lb clean and jerks, and 85lb snatches for the weekend!
Here’s Sheila working on the handstand push ups. And the gang “hanging around” after the WOD!
Rain or Shine! WOD: Tabata Something Else!
After a warm up and 11 burpees it’s tabata time! 20 seconds work followed by 10 seconds rest for 8 cycles in each of the following stations: pull ups, push ups, sit ups, squats.
Images from today’s WOD. Great work everyone, especially with the sore legs from yesterday! And a huge welcome to Kelli and Danny who are starting the basics classes next week. Interested in joining the fun? Now’s your chance. Another round of intro classes starts next Monday at 10:00 AM. See Getting Started and Schedule for details.

Today’s WOD is going to be seriously fun. And a big surprise.
However….. THERE WILL BE LOTS OF MONKEY BUSINESS
Come and see for yourself!
OKAY! SO HERE’S WHAT WENT DOWN!!!
Well, first the monkey’s arrived in the NEW CrossFitMobile to celebrate Karen’s 44th B’day!!!
They were pissed we didn’t do the proverbial birthday WOD of choice, the Filthy Forty Four.
Coach Kaye said “You silly Monkey’s. I am way more creative than that. We are going to do ‘Karen!’ In honor of the birthday queen herself.” However, Coach Kaye is also smart and knew everyone would hate her if she said “Today we are going to do 150 wall balls for time.” So she cleverly disguised the WOD like this:
In teams of 3, while the first team mate did 25 wall balls, the second teammate jumped rope and the third did sit ups. When the teammate doing wall balls was finished they all moved stations. They did 6 rounds for a total of 150 WALL BALLS plus extra!
Well, those darn monkey’s just hung around during the WOD getting into everyone’s way and not doing so much as one sit up.
But when the WODs were over they sure knew how to party!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAREN!
