Everyone wants to do Butterfly Pull Ups, but can’t seem to develop them. Here is a great video I found that will help.
Learn how to do the Butterfly Kipping Pull-up from Jeremy Kinnick. We recommend that you have 5 strict pull-ups and regular kipping pull-ups before attempting to learn butterfly using this method.
This video is also posted under the new “Technique” tab on the website.
This is probably the best video I’ve seen about what the Paleo Diet is, why grains are bad for you, etc.. Many of you that train here, have already adopted a Paleo Diet or have begun to, and are seeing tremendous results in weight loss and increase in energy levels. The individuals who did the best on our Body Transformation Challenge, utilized a Paleo Diet. If you wan to learn more about the Paleo Diet, you can purchase Robb Wolf’s book, The Paleo Solution at any book store or you can pick one up here at the gym. Or if you want to dive right in and start cooking Paleo meals, I highly recommend Sarah Fragoso’s Cookbook, Everyday Paleo. This can also be purchased at any bookstore or here at the gym. Enjoy!
For those of you who have not had a chance to try our Bootcamp class with Coach Ernie, please get in here today at 10am. We had a great turnout last Saturday and are expecting to have another one today. There will be a regular CrossFit class at 9am with Coach Rob.
Ever wondered how your times in workouts compared to the rest of the CrossFit WORLD? It’s AWESOME! Even though I’m not competing to go to the games, I LOVE that each week that this competition goes on that I can see exactly how I did, and how I compare to the rest of the WORLD of CrossFitters!!
I invite you all to check it out and to register(www.games.crossfit.com)… it may be worth the $20 just so that you can see how you compare to the world!!
By the way, if you are registered, you MUST enter your OWN score by logging into the web site, indicating that you did the workout at Walnut CrossFit, and submitting your score. We will validate it if you did, in fact, enter it correctly.
Have you ever set out to create something brand new for yourself? A project, a goal, a challenge, a job? I mean really create it, exactly the way it would excite you.
I’m talking about taking the opportunity to dare to dream. What would something look like if it looked exactly how you wanted it to? Are you willing to say “that is how it is going to be!” and then work yourself out to do what it takes to get there? Would you dare? If you really take a look at what stops you, it’s your past. Before you had a past you never worried about failing. Try this — “If my life could look like anything, I would…” Now, can it look like that? If you’re answer is no, notice that it’s not about anything real, but about what you think is doable based on what you have done up to now.
It takes something, no doubt. It takes commitment and determination. It takes courage and time. It takes asking for help and it takes little steps. It takes constantly contending with that little voice that said, “I warned you…,” and the opinions of the people around you. But what do you want? A life created by the opinions of others? Or a life of sheer exhilaration and excitement?

Great job to those who came out to the Bootcamp class we offered this last Saturday. Many of you showed up and did great. We will be offering it again this upcoming Saturday. Remember that its FREE and does not count toward your membership package.
I have watched plenty of interviews with Bruce Lee and thought about his words in terms of my martial arts study, but recently, while perusing YouTube late at night, I watched this clip and thought about his words in terms of CrossFit. What if you considered exercise and fitness as a physical expression of yourself? What if your workouts were truly a representation of you? I think some of us FEAR our workouts are indeed a representation of us. We become self-conscious of what others will think. We become motivated by less than productive and less than truly authentic expressions of just who we are. We cheat, we fudge, we don’t listen, we become forgetful, we don’t try too hard for fear of losing, we try not to stick out, we judge ourselves, we assume others judge us. We think our score is somehow a negative statement on our worth. Is all of that who you really are? What if every workout you did was truly you, with no meaning, no judgment, just expression? What are the possibilities that could show up for you, if you came to each workout as a blank slate and open book, ready to be shaped, like water.
