I'm pretty stoked about it.

I tried out a different gym on post yesterday. They just opened a crossfit style gym, so I hit it up. They had awesome stuff. Bounce plates, chalk, a prowler (a knock-off, but it still worked), a REAL ghr, and lots of other fun stuff.

I did power cleans, working up to 245. Not bad considering I haven't done a real power clean with bounce plates since high school, over 10 years ago. After that I did sumo speed pulls super-setted with some GHR's, then pushed around the prowler.

GHR's are AWESOME. Now I know why everyone loves them so much. I've never felt my glutes and hams like that. I worked up to 6 plates on the prowler, and considering I was pushing it around a floor with matts that grabbed onto the sleds, it was really hard work.

I'm going to be making more trips to this gym, for sure.

I'm not doing crossfit though. Hell no. I like the movements they use, but the programming is retarded.
