  1. Damn! Off day for me. (not just because I’m wimping out of this workout.. I’m just tired as hell and have to work anyways)

    Kyle – I have a feeling that reminder was inspired at least in part by me. Either way, sorry about the excess chalk usage. It will be toned down.

    1. Well, that’s embarrassing.

      1. This is your clever way to get us all to read your blog! Mmm local food.

      2. No.. I’m really not proud of the blog. It could be good, but I think it’s silly. Especially in its current state (unfinished). It’s something I’m doing for school.

      3. I think almost everyone took the “filthy” too much in a literal sense

  2. I know I did! I can’t help it if a piece of chalk crumbles into a million tiny pieces as I’m putting it on in the middle of a WOD. Crossfit has obviously made my grip strength too strong.

  3. Chalk Monkeys.

    They’re real, and they walk among us. It takes a practiced eye to spot them, but once you know the signs they are unmistakable. The first thing to look for is a bar, either olympic or power lifting, that has had several ounces of chalk ground relentlessly into the knurling. Scientists have been unable to explain why Chalk Monkeys exhibit this singular trait, but it defines them and they can’t stop themselves.

    1. A popular theory behind this behavior is that the knurling on a bar is uncomfortable on the delicate hands of Chalk Monkeys. If you see one, tell them it will be okay and they will eventually toughen up and adapt.

      – If you don’t see the tell-tale bars that Chalk Monkeys leave in their wake, look on the floor for two large, inexplicable white blotches that someone else will have to sweep up. This spoor is also a hallmark of a Chalk Monkey infestation.

      This condition, although disturbing and silly, is not irreversible. If we all pay attention and show some compassion, we CAN cure the Chalk Monkeys.

      Will you help?
