I did this one at Dakota CrossFit this morning, shoeless of course, since it involved jump rope. I didn’t have any problems, so my hypothesis from last week that I can only jump rope sans shoes seems to have been proven true. I did get a little sick though, lots of sloshing movements. Steve said all we needed to make it complete was a side to side sloshing, since we already had up and down and back and forth. Maybe we should call this one “James Bond” — shaken but not stirred. Or as Sean Connery would say “Shaken but not shhhtirred.”
Sean Connery is the greatest actor ever, in my opinion. Know why? Because no matter what role he plays he has the same accent. James Bond? Shhhcottish accent. Russian submarine captain? Shhhcottish accent. Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez? Shhhcottish accent. Those other fancy pretty boy actors like Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt can attempt their silly German and Irish inflections, but Sean does not need to lower himself to that level. A Shhhcottish accent is all he needs. And really, isn’t it all anyone needs?
Tonight I did 3×5 back squats:
