Robert Bernet applied for the Editor-in-Chief job at the CrossFit Journal. In trying to think of a way to make him stand out above the crowd he came up with the idea of doing a blog dedicated to getting Lauren Glassman’s attention. It is www.heylaurenyoushouldhirerob.blogspot.com. Robert talked about his ideas for the blog and how he keeps it creative and humorous. He explained how he got Lauren to send him a CrossFit T-shirt by wearing the only CrossFit shirt he had day in and day out. Rob even sang Lauren a song live on the show, it was to the tune of “The Beverly Hillbillies.”
Russell Bennedetto was also featured on the show. He was one of the newbie CrossFitters that Neil and JJ started following at the first of the year. Russell talked about the goal that he set last time he was on the show and how he wanted to get a kipping pull up. He came close, but the most notable improvement for Russell, besides losing over 40 lbs, is the fact that his cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure have all gone down dramatically. Russell zones religiously and talked about his one cheat day with Gillian at the Barbell Cert. Russell also talked about the Cert and Coach Rippetoe.
Neil and JJ gave an update on final results of the SoCal Qualifier and the Great Basin Qualifier. They ended the show with an insider report of what is coming up in the Journal.
