*One Tabata round is eight rounds of 20 seconds of maximum work, followed by 10 seconds of rest. There is no rest between the second Tabata round and the thrusters.

This workout is scored by both the time and the least number of repetitions completed for each, eight-set Tabata round.

  2. Need A Bionic Back | April 27, 2010 at 11:23 am

    Probably late to the game on this, but am I the only one who gets the tag line is a riff on one of the many brilliant scenes/lines from Say Anything?

    “Look, I know you’re busy, you don’t have to entertain me. But, uh, you can trust me. Uh, tell you a couple things about myself. Iā€™m 19, been overseas for a couple semesters, now Iā€™m back. I’m an athlete so I rarely drink. Kickboxing, you ever heard of kickboxing? Sport of the future? Don the Dragon Wilson? Benny “the Jet” Uriquez? Mercy Mess on the Champions of Sport? I can see by your face, no. My point is, you can relax because your daughter will be safe with me for the next 7 to 8 hours, sir.”

    Showing my age since this move was first out more than 20 years ago. When the F did I get old?

    John S.

      Don’t feel bad, I think this movie is timeless. When my co-worker came to me for relationship advice on how to impress girls my first question to him was “Do you have a boombox?”.
      I won’t go into details but well he didn’t have a boombox and he didn’t get the girl. Just sayin…

    • coach | April 27, 2010 at 12:32 pm

      “Timeless,” the greatest teenage melodrama of all time—whichever.

      Thank you, John. That’s how you become great, Sir. That, and coming in more than once a week. Two, since you started it:

      –“One question: do you need someone or do you need me? Forget it. I don’t really care.”

      –also, “Maybe I didn’t really know you. Maybe you were just a mirage. Maybe the world is full of food and sex and spectacle and we’re all just hurtling toward an apocalypse, in which case, it’s not your fault.”

      I have actual work to do now…


      • Need A Bionic Back | April 27, 2010 at 1:44 pm

        One, duly noted. Two, since you since you

        “Okay, we’re going out. It’s a date. It’s a scam. Whatever.”

        I can’t even come close by memory, so had to look this up (great for many reasons, including another kickboxing reference) –

        “A career? I’ve thought about this quite a bit sir and I would have to say considering what’s waiting out there for me, I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything as a career. I dont want to sell anything bought or processed or buy anything sold or processed or repair anything sold, bought or processed as a career. I dont want to do that. My father’s in the army. He wants me to join, but I can’t work for that corporation, so what I’ve been doing lately is kick-boxing, which is a new sport…as far as career longevity, I dont really know. I cant figure it all out tonight, sir, so I’m just gonna hang with your daughter.”

        I also liked the interaction with Jermey Pivin (whose best role, in my humble estimation, was Droz in PCU) –

        “Give me my firebird keys.”

        “You must chill! You must chill!. I have hidden your keys. Chill!”

        I have actual work to do too, but this is way more interesting.

        • Jen M. | April 27, 2010 at 1:48 pm

          work is overrated…

        • coach | April 27, 2010 at 1:57 pm

          Droz. That could be your new nickname. “You’re going to wear the shirt of the band you’re going to go see. Don’t be that guy.”


          • Need A Bionic Back | April 27, 2010 at 2:15 pm

            A top five line from that movie, and one I think of pretty much anytime I see someone doing exactly that.

            I love the topic for Pigman’s thesis – that anytime of the day you can find a Michael Cain or Gene Hackman movie on.

            The whole Gutter stumbling across George Clinton and Parliment Funkadelic and then them playing the Pit party is also brilliant.

            Oh man, I never should have started this – going to have to on demand PCU tonight.

    • coach | April 27, 2010 at 12:37 pm

      Thanks Chuck,

      We know Andrew, the owner, well. He’s a great guy with a lot of energy. I’ve been helping him with whatever he’s needed over the past few months.

      We’ll connect with him for an event or two once he’s up and running.


      • Jen M. | April 27, 2010 at 12:55 pm

        that is totally the space i tried to convince you to move into originally. now my plan to make you move closer to my house has been foiled!

        • Rob | April 27, 2010 at 8:33 pm

          No way! I’ve passed by that place many times and thought: “that would make a great crossfit box.”

          BTW – this is like right down the block from Primal. Wonder how they’re feeling about this.

  4. Mrs. F | April 27, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    That’s great- spread the crossfit love! Now, Tamra, Jen, Sean and Mayra don’t go switchin’ gyms on us just cuz this will be closer to your houses. We love you too much!

    • tbferg | April 27, 2010 at 12:40 pm

      Erin and Erez live over there too, but I think it’s likely you’ll still see us all at MPH! I may drop in to the new box when it opens, though, just out of curiousity.

    • Jen M. | April 27, 2010 at 12:57 pm

      don’t worry, not going anywhere! i followed john all the way out to merrifield one summer – and that was before i got to have mel and bk as coaches too! i think i’ll manage the few extra blocks šŸ™‚

  5. Shana | April 27, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    My favorite Say Anything quote “: I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that. “

    • Need A Bionic Back | April 27, 2010 at 1:46 pm

      You beat me to it. Nicely done.

  6. Shana | April 27, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    Second best quote –
    Lloyd Dobler: I got a question. If you guys know so much about women, how come you’re here at like the Gas ‘n’ Sip on a Saturday night completely alone drinking beers with no women anywhere?
    Joe: By choice, man.

  7. TinkWants2GetStronger | April 27, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    i really have to watch this! movie night at MPH? who’s got an overhead projector??? just say’n! šŸ˜€

    • coach | April 27, 2010 at 3:58 pm

      Actually, we do. I had to get one for the running clinics…not a bad idea.


      • tbferg | April 27, 2010 at 8:48 pm

        Sounds like as a group we have enough expertise to do an MPH-casted reproduction of Say Anything…
