We’ve been having some trouble in the gym as of late.  I think this repost will go a long way to clear it up.  Too bad it isn’t a riposte. LOLz?  No?  Sorry.  -G

I am always listing the ways CrossFit makes you a better athlete, mother, husband, lover, fighter, and a million other occupations, but now I am going to teach you to become a better geometrician.  Why you ask?  It is because the coaches have been making too many trips to the trash dumpster lately.

Our problem is that of fitting an inordinate amount of paper towel in to a finite space, the trash can.  To maximize the trash can’s volume we need to mold our used paper towels in to the shape that has the least surface area while simultaneously having a great deal of volume.  Enter the sphere.  By balling our used paper towels up we reduce the space required to store said towels; therefore, we can fit more paper towels in to the trash can! Eureka!

Why does this matter?  Because now your coaches will have more time throughout the day to do whatever it is they do (burpees).  And hey, if you think I’m crazy just compare this short rant to what Coach ‘Cutthroat’ Miss J wanted to do: take away all hand drying privileges.  You can thank me later for keeping this Draconian measure out of our gym…

Not good.


Not bad.


At least we didn’t go in to Euclidean spherical packing,
Coach G

1) What is the shortest distance between two points?
2)1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 What are the next five numbers in the sequence?
3) How much wood could a woodchuck chuck?
4)How many hoplites can Themistocles dispatch to Thermopylae without endangering his force of triremes at Artemisium?  Show your work.

    1) A straight line…of overhead walking lunges with a 135 lb barbell
    2) 21, 34, 55, 89, 144
    3) Depends on whether a wood chuck can actually chuck wood
    4) 497 hoplites + Blake in his Air Bergins

    Blake in the Air Bergins is worth at least 10 normal men.

    Also, more guesses for friday?

    1) Marathon row. Literally 26.1 miles.
    2) 100 burpees for time, Russell Berger standards.
    3) Eva Peron: like Eva, but sub 800 DUs for the run, kb swings are with 100lbs, and the pullups are muscle ups.

    Close with anything?!?
