shake-it-off-crossfit-930x360c

CrossFit Culmination in Las Vegas created this parody of Taylor Swift’s hit song, “Shake it off.” The video features the box’s athletes busting a move to catchy lyrics poking fun at haters and gym rats. It’s something you might want to play during your next workout.

You can check out the full lyrics here:

My Pullups are all wrong
These movements don’t make me strong
That’s what lifters say, mmm-mmm
That’s what lifters say, mmm-mmm
Im losing all my gains
and I can’t make ‘em stay
At least that’s what lifters say, mmm-mmm
That’s what lifters say, mmm-mmm
But I keep woding
Can’t stop, won’t stop woding
It’s like I got this coach
In my mind
Saying, “It’s gonna be alright.”

‘Cause the meat-heads gonna juice, juice, juice, juice, juice
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Gym-Rats gonna Flex, Flex, Flex, Flex, Flex
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
we never miss a weight
with lifters on our feet
And that’s what they don’t see, mmm-mmm
that’s what they don’t see, mmm-mmm”
I’m lifting with my coach (lifting with my coach)
He watches as we go (Watches as we go)
And that’s what they don’t know, mmm-mmm
that’s what they don’t know, mmm-mmm
But I keep woding
Can’t stop, won’t stop woding
It’s like I got this coach
In my mind

Saying, “It’s gonna be alright.”
‘Cause the meat-heads gonna juice, juice, juice, juice, juice
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Gym-Rats gonna Flex, Flex, Flex, Flex, Flex
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off
Hey, hey, hey
Just think while you’ve been getting down and out about the crossfitters and the dirty, dirty boxes of the world,
You could’ve been making gains to this sick wod.
My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like “Oh, my god look at those quads!” but I’m just gonna shake.
And to the fella over there with the hella good FRAN
Won’t you come on over, baby? We can thrust, thrust, thrust
Yeah ohhh

‘Cause the meat-heads gonna juice, juice, juice, juice, juice
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate (haters gonna hate)
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Gym-Rats gonna Flex, Flex, Flex, Flex, Flex (mmmm)
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake (and fake, and fake, and fake)
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off
Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off
Shake it off, I shake it off,
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off (you’ve got to),
I, I, I shake it off, I shake it off,

Watch Chris Spealler Beat Rich Froning After They Did 30 Muscle-Ups For Time

141-640x426_thumb-930x360c

A few days ago, Dave Castro held a TDC Challenge, inviting athletes to do 30 strict muscle-ups for time. The competitor with the best time wins a Castro barbell from Rogue.

Fastest time for 30 strict muscle ups for time in the next 24 hours wins a Castro Barbell from @Roguefitness @RichFroning 4:58 @JamesHobart 8:08 See CrossFit.com for complete video @CrossFit #CrossFit #CrossFitSeminarStaff #TDCChallenge

Un vídeo publicado por @thedavecastro el

If you’re thinking of joining, don’t bother. Rich Froning and James Hobbart already did the challenge, finishing it in 4:58 and 8:08, respectively.

But if you thought Froning already had this won (as usual), 35-year-old CrossFit legend Chris Spealler sent in his entry a day later. It showed him completing the challenge in just 3:57.

Amazing how these guys could do 30 strict muscle-ups in that short amount of time. We’d love to do just even 1 strict muscle-up in under 3:57! Also, pardon the vertical videos. We’re hoping these athletes will soon have video-taking skills as great as their muscle-ups.

Guy Has 3 Broken Vertebrae After OC Throwdown’s Hurdle Event

By now you’ve probably heard of the infamous hurdle event at the recently-concluded 2015 OC Throwdown. If not, here’s a quick recap. Warning: your backs and butts might want to close their eyes – if they ever had eyes.

guyHurtsVertebrae

In the event, competitors were asked to leap over hurdles 50” and up, causing most of them to come crashing down on the floor. One guy suffered more than others. CrossFitter Blake Bastian (not the one in the photo above) had 3 broken vertebrae, and posted this x-ray photo on his Instagram page.

 

Last year, Kevin Ogar broke his back in the same competition. Hopefully these two incidents will serve OCT organizers – or any competition organizer for that matter – a lesson on safety and programming. As for athletes, learn how to pick your battles. Know your limits and know when to back down from a fight – it might just save your back.
