Workout of the Day
5 Rounds for time:
15 Hang Cleans
30 Double Unders
Here’s a new CrossFit acronym to add to your repertoire: ARS. Ass Raspberry Syndrome. I can say that I have never had this problem, but I’ve heard of it often: too many sit-ups lead to a large, rosy patch of skin on one’s buttocks. If you suffer from ARS, try this: on your sit-ups, don’t let your butt come off the floor at the bottom or top of the rep. Once you peel off the floor then slam back down I believe that you create some excess friction which creates the rubbing, chafing and general raspberry-like state of the booty.
We are going to be learning how to rope climb tomorrow. Bring a pair of long socks or pants to keep from burning your legs. This isn’t mandatory, but will be really helpful.
