Forty Caliber Fitness (AZ)  Active LE. Functional fitness for tactical athletes. Plus Coffee! Hate=Blocked. Love=Coffee. Podcast=iTunes & Podbean. @welcomebackfrank

New episode on iTunes and Podbean!
After a few weeks off and an unfinished CrossFit Open, we briefly chat about the Open as a whole, and how mine ended in week two with a torn bicep. I also get into my thoughts about skills vs fitness, and what has the biggest return on your investment (hopefully a full episode at a later date with Big Dave - I really want to get his two cents because he will likely bring up some points I have yet to consider).
That's it! Probably going to end up taking a break, as we have a bunch going on at the moment. When I tore my ACL, I had time to record workouts and edit videos but not so much this time around.
Hopefully things go smoothly and I can start annoying you again really soon!
Until then!

The final installment of #BeatUsInTheOpn is here.
Big Dave threw down 97 reps! Even if I was healthy I wouldn't have had a chance of hanging with him!
So for the final time this Open, post your score in comments for a chance to win a Strength & Honor shirt. Make sure you have a score for EACH Open workout :)
I'll contact the winners later this week and figure out how to get a shirt to you!

Since Big Dave is no longer at an affiliate, he doesn't have the space for ring muscle ups. His 18.3 was a race to 220.
Unlike me, if I was even ABLE to do this workout, it would have been a race to 220 because I still can't do muscle ups!
Taking a big fat zero. (Scroll for some bruising shots.) Surgery later this week.
I'm out, but Big Dave is still in it, and we are going to continue the #beatusintheopen challenge! Post your scores in comments, make sure you follow us, and the top three after five weeks will win a Strength & Honor shirt!

While warming up my clean for 18.2 I heard and felt a pop in my bicep. I was able to get through the workout Saturday morning, and I even re-did 18.2 that night. The arm hurt but I thought it was just a pull or a strain.
The following day, at the Highland Games, I had no power in my arm and it really started to hurt. I withdrew after just a handful of pitiful throws.
Monday the bruising started.
Waiting to see an ortho surgeon and get an MRI and see how bad it is.
It can always be worse. Just really bummed and limited as to what I can do.

This week's score card for #BeatUsInTheOpen!
Both Dave and I were time capped the first go 'round; needless to say the second time went much better.

This week, 18.2 and 18.2a are the topic of conversation. I really liked this workout before I did it.... looks like another re-do in my future.
Can't fail tips are in this episode!! Here's a hint, they're the same as last week. Be in good shape if you want to score well!!
Don't forget to leave us a review on iTunes, and if you do we will read it on an upcoming episode!

Well then.
It's been a busy week, and Highland Games is tomorrow, so I squeezed 18.2 in before work.
And I got time capped.
I definitely won't be booking any tickets for Madison any time soon!
Hopefully I'll have a better display throwing rocks tomorrow!
