Gents (and ladies),

Just signed up for the GORUCK challenge for the end of January. Looking forward to getting my butt beat and old fashioned comraderie. Even got some new Salomon's today to celebrate (and for training). Anybody ever do it? Any Tough Mudder's?

Sounds like fun! I have a SEAL friend that tried to get me into Crossfit a few years back but kids sort of derailed that for a while.

Crossfit is great, can't think of a better workout.

Looking at this dude would convince anyone of that, lol. The funny thing was he'd always come in with some new and interesting injury. One time his wrists were jacked up like they had rope burn. He said he was doing some variation of a pull-up where he ended up above the bar. I'm still not really sure what the hell he was talking about.

Yeah. That must have been the exercise. I just don't see how his wrists would have gotten that mangled. I'll guess I'll have to do some to find out.

I've got to try that sometime. Looks ridiculously hard to do it as slow as that first video I posted.
