Step away from the bucket and put the chalk down!

Sean...22+ Rounds on Cindy after only 2 months at Southie

Use chalk when necessary, don’t waste precious time at the bucket when you could ripping pull-ups or overhead squats. Don’t be that guy, save some chalk for the kids.

Split Jerk

Overhead Squats

L3 (115,80)
L2 (95,65)
L1 (65,45)
Advanced (135, 95); C2B Pull-Ups

    CrossFit Southie,
    You all are awesome. I have watched 2 journal videos with you in them and love how you are doing it. I am a new affiliate owner in Southern Cali and what I see in the video of Marissa today is by far my favorite part of CrossFit.
    Marissa you are amazing and I hope all my athletes at CrossFit Moreno Valley get to watch your video!

    I came across this comment from the main site and wanted to be sure everyone got a chance to see it:

    “Another amazing story of why CrossFit is so incredible! Way to go Marissa! Truly touching to see you find your way in life with the help of Amy and CF Southie. Seeing my sister, now 29 years old, her entire life living with cerebral palsy, I know exactly the struggles you have faced. For those of you that don’t know what cerebral palsy is, I’m telling you it is one tough condition to deal with, in my sister’s case being both mentally and physically challenged. My sister hasn’t ever had the chance to walk or even stand upright without the help of a walker or canes, she relies solely on her wheelchair now. For you Marissa, this just goes to show if you put your mind to something, you can achieve it. Keep fighting! Nothing is too tough for you to handle. You are a HUGE inspiration. A true hero”

    Congrats Amy, you should be very proud!
