I've never even heard of cross fit. I guess it's cool he won it three times. Let the steroid scandals now begin. :thumb:

My last Shotokan sensei also ran a Cross-Fit (TM) class 3 nights a week after my class, and I attended occasionally (it was included in my fees for the Shotokan lessons).

DAMN, that stuff drains you. It was different every time, but usually consisted of a number of different stations. You'd go against time, or for reps, or for distance, etc. He even had the giant truck tire out in the parking lot to do the flips. Now THAT... will drain you.

Here's a video of the tire stuff.

Sensei's was not loaded with other smaller tiers like this one. He had us flip it the length of the parking lot, against the clock and each other.
