    Great video, except for some reason it doesn’t show all 10 rounds. I believe our team did complete 10 rounds and came in second place even with Joe H. very fast burpees. The filmaker from Anvil Productions, A.K.A, the Forge should grant the “Other Joe” a chance to defend or in this case, avenge himself. So, I extend a friendly head-to-head challenge to the Forge of 150 Burpees this Saturday. Perfect form required for each rep, members serve as judges and of course, the contest be video taped from “start to finish” and downloaded onto the site afterwards. Maybe Moe can join in as well? I will be at the gym this Saturday at 8:15.

    A wise man once said, “you mess with the bull, you get the horns.” Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it.

    Jeff — I have heard that one. Would you not want a fair opportunity to defend yourself? I bet you would. If I lose the challenge, I lose fair and square, but atleast it should be fair. The request is nothing more than a friendly competition. So, is the contest a go for Saturday morning?

    Oh, Joe. . .no need to get all worked up. We all work hard and support each other. We also all get our asses handed to us.

    It seems the Blacksmith has touched a nerve, albeit one surrounded by a visible layer of visceral adipose tissue. Mountainman: you seem to have missed the entire point of the video. Here’s a hint: it had NOTHING to do with burpees. As a matter of fact, within the first half of the video, you were shown bounding up the hill with great velocity and power – twice. Believe me, I was VERY generous with my editing – if you’d like to see the Director’s cut, i’d be glad to show it you.

    As far as your gauntlet-throwing, I have one for you that will actually help you become more fit. Jeff and I offer fitness training 6 days a week. I challenge you to participate in three workouts every week from now until you climb your next mountain. Perhaps then you will understand, finally, that crossfit isn’t about “fair” or defending yourself – it’s about self awareness and a commitment to excellence. Here’s a a quote from St. Augustine that I’m sure you will identify with:

    “People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

    And that, my mountainman friend, was the ENTIRE point of the video.

    Vince, behind your blacksmith exterior truly lies the heart of a philosopher. Still waters run deep. Awesome video. I was at home recovering from a whole weekend of Jeff. Just kidding….he should have been resting from having dealt w/me the whole weekend, as well as sleeping with a blue tick hound, and baking for 2 whole days in the 90 degree heat, and listening to the once great Brian Oldfield bluster non-stop.

  10. The Joe says:

    While I do agree with Vince that CrossFit is about self awareness and a commitment to excellence; I feel I must remind him that Crossfit workouts “…are competitive events”. Therefore, I say, if the Mountainman wants to challenge someone/anyone to a head-to-head competition, then so be it. Hell, count me in. I will be more than happy to record the entire event, as well as have a judge call “no-lift” for any incomplete repetition (I would expect this is required in order to assure fairness). After all, it’s all in good fun; and the winner will be “divined through competition, not debate.”

    As for the video, well done.
