Handstand Progression

Still working on the handstands.  It’s a slow process…

Crossfit Invading Globo Gym?

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

I’ve been a little under the weather lately.  But tonight was the first night in almost a week that I decided to head to the gym and do some weight lifting, avoiding any high intensity work in favour of more strength type training.

To my dismay, I saw more crossfit type functional training at the gym than I’ve seen there in a very long time.  It was very nice to see.  There were clean and jerks, deadlifts, floor wipers, kettle bell training and other things going on, but a couple guys were also doing the virtual shovelling ( that came up on the crossfit website just a couple of days ago.

Anyway,  I thought it was interesting as the globo gym isn’t known for such training.  Honestly - I didn’t see a single curl being done.  Seems like they should invest in a few more pullup bars and maybe a couple sets of rings.
