It’s the season of online quizzes. I’m a professor at the end of the university undergraduate year so my choice is to grade some more papers or take an online quiz. No contest.
Here’s What CrossFit Exercise Are You?
I’m a Wall Ball. Thankfully not a burpee!
For more on wall balls, read my report on Karen, the deceptively simple CrossFit workout which is 150 wall balls.
T-Rex may hate wall balls but they’re probably my favourite CrossFit exercise.
There were three tricks I had to master to make my peace with wall balls. First, I learned to take my glasses off. Wall ball to the face while wearing glasses isn’t fun and my optometrist wondered what I’d done to my frames. Second, it’s all about timing. Catch the ball on your way down into the squat. Third, to meet the “no rep” line on the wall–minimum acceptable wall ball height–jump on the way back up.

Huh, I got Thrusters, which are not my strong point.
Maybe they should be!
I got Thrusters. I’ll take them over burpees!
Clean and jerk. They say I take meathead as a compliment. Not true.
I took it twice, and got Clean and Jerk the first time and Thruster the second time…
to be fair…anything but burpees!!
Just so. Anything but burpees!
I can’t do many wall balls at a time, but I love them. Burpees can die in a fire.
