Happy Birthday Eddie

Happy Birthday our to the "lost child of atlantis", "tai lou", "young man" and great pushmore inspiration, Eddie. Today he turns #*$%, doesn't matter, what matters is he was probably driving a car while most of you were still eating your own boogers and shitting your pants.

Despite being exposed to more oxygen than most of us, he hardly shows any sign of rust. He probably kicks most of our asses all week round. Better still he does it with such humility often sporting that cheeky grin after he just smokes, or rather bubbles your ass. If you think he is a monster on land, wait till you see him in the water. There, he unleashes the strength of the ancient lost city and authority granted to him by the almighty Poseidon, god of the sea, hence the noble name bestowed upon him by us brothers, "lost child of atlantis".

I know he is accustomed to say nice things and make it seem like it was a lot of effort but I know he does it to make us feel better. Thanks eddie for those "big brotherly" comforts, I would take that consolation anytime. The thing about eddie is he is a great motivator and encourager. Even though he knows he is better than you at something he will not withhold the resources from you, rather he will ensure he pulls you up to.

That is something I think we can learn from him. Even though crossfit can be competitive sometimes, at the heart of it, we are teammates, comrades and we are family and Eddie's our big PAPA ! Thanks for being part of Pushmore. Once again Pushmore wishes you HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have a super one oh wise one.

Mucho Love,

John-Son and John-Hans

A rundown of the CrossFit Games 2009 Individual events:

As the affiliate teams prepare to compete today (the Stadium Workout setup pictured, with Jumbotron in the background), we announce the five events for Saturday's Individual competition.

General Rules
1. The movement standards are typical HQ unless otherwise stated.
2. Each athlete will be ranked according to their time or score relative to the other athletes for that workout. Their final score for the workout will be equal to their rank.
3. The overall ranking going into each event will determine the reverse starting order for that event. For example, the athletes that win the first event will get to go last in the second event, while the athletes that come in last in the first event must go first in the second. The athletes in the lead (those with the lowest running total) after two events get to go last in the third event. And so forth.
4. After the second event, the bottom ten men and the bottom ten women (those with the most points) will be eliminated from the competition.
5. After the fourth event, the remaining bottom ten men and ten women will be eliminated from the competition. At this point, there will be approximately 55 athletes competing in Saturday's final event (for each men and women).
6. After the fifth event, the 16 men and 16 women with the lowest total points will be invited to compete on Sunday. If by chance there is a tie for 16th place, the athlete with the best single placement in any of the five events will be awarded the invite.

Event 1 - The Run
The first event is a 7.1km run through varied terrain including both asphalt and extremely steep hills off trail. The athlete's time will be electronically determined by a chip given to the athlete prior to the race.

Event 2 - The Deadlift
Heaviest successful deadlift completed lifting one rep every 30sec. Each competitor will begin at the first barbell, which weighs 315lbs for men and 185lbs for women. Dropping is permitted. The athlete then has 10sec plus any portion of the 20sec remaining to set up at the next bar, which is 10lbs heavier than the previous (so the second bar weighs 325/195). Athletes continue moving to progressively heavier bars until they fail. The athletes are ranked according to the heaviest successful weight lifted before failing.

Event 3 - The Sandbag Hill Sprint
The men will pick up two 35lb sandbags (loosely packed) and sprint approximately 170m uphill. The sandbags begin flat on the ground. The sprint is steep in places, with approximately 100' in elevation gain over the 170m course. Women carry one 35lb sandbag for the same course.

Event 4 - Row / Hammer Stake
Row 500m
Hammer a 4' metal stake into specially prepared, evenly compacted ground (women use a 3' stake)
Row 500m
Details and standards will be given to the athletes on Saturday afternoon.

Event 5 - The Couplet
The two exercises are wallball and barbell snatch. The specifics of the workout will be disclosed on Saturday afternoon. We want the athletes to have the privilege of being the first to perform this exact workout.

What constitutes good/acceptable behaviour at a CF gym? Take a read of the following post from CF West Santa Cruz:-

Mark has left the house...

Mark, then...

Mark was the first guy to officially do a workout at PushMore. His WOD? Mini "Cindy" for a total of seven rounds. As he would confirm, he spent 10 minutes working out and then the next 30 minutes lying on the ground. He's come a long way since then, being a regular at PushMore and improving in leaps and bounds. His current "Cindy" PR is 25 rounds plus. Thanks for being a part of PushMore and wishing you all the best in Sydney!

Mark, now(minus rock star hairdo)
