    That was FUN sweating with you 6am-ers!! I just had 20oz of Gatorade…NOT paleo but definitely necessary today. I got yellow (the best flavor). Stay hydrated out there!

      6am@Crossfit Minneapolis: 5-5-5-5-5 backsquat: 135, 155, 175, 185, 195.

      They said I had “perfect form” and used me as an example for the class. That should make you both smile and laugh!

      CP! I think the best flavor is definitely RED. Anyone care to weigh in?

      Also–yes. Hydrate before, and after the workout today…

        I have to agree with CP — yellow! It tastes like pre-season. 🙂

          Yes–lemon-lime definitely reminds me of 2-a-days in pre-season! Also, it tastes better.

        Yellow is classic. It gets my vote.

        Yellow it is, Mel. Sorry. I used to drink the shit out of that stuff (from a glass bottle) on the Pee Wee Soccer fields of Cape St. Claire back in ’87. It’s still my go-to.

        Also, whatever Christy says…

        I’m not going to choose sides on what the best flavor, but I have to say that Lemon-lime is by far the worst possible flavor. There’s nothing thirst quenching about it…something tells me that I will be ostracized for my comment and that my contrariety to John and CP could even be perceived as anti-MPH.

    My scaling in today’s workout was half double unders and half the burpees. No problem right? Well, for some reason I thought that half the burpees in round one was 50 so I did 50. I thought half the burpees in round two was 25 so I did 25. Some how I got it right by the third round and did 10. Result: I wound up doing 32 more burpees than I needed to. Its no wonder my shoulder was tired after the workout.

    Let this be a lesson to the remaining classes. Today is not a day when you want to mess up the count. So, READ THE WORKOUT BOARD before you start and glance at it between rounds. Most of all, have fun!!

    I grabbed a dark Green one – is that apple? Honestly I don’t remember buyin it and I think I may have just dropped a 20 on the counter and walked out. Awesome workout – congrats everyone.
