    some fun math to get started…so in a workout like today’s or like yesterdays, we are doing a movement in increasing (or decreasing) quantities starting (or finishing) with 1. And if you’re like me you might like to know how many total pullups I did yesterday in my 13 rounds and 6 or how many total burpees I did in todays WOD.
    1+2+3+…+13 pullups, or 1+2+…+10 burpees. You could go through and add that all up manually, but there is some fun series math that has solved that problem and makes for a quick calculation. without deriving it, like this dude pascal did when he was 8 years old or something, the answer is here:

    1+2+3+…+n = ( n * (n+1) / 2)

    So, yesterday I did 13 rounds + 6 pullups = (13*(13+1) / 2) = 13*14/2 = 91 pullups, add those 6 extra = 97pullups!
    and today we did 1+2+..+10 burpees = (10*11)/2 = 55 burpees!

    wasn’t that fun!?

    today’s WOD: 10:16
    the bear crawl was 100′ (there and back on the green turf) not the 10′ feet across the green turf that I was thinking when I read the description here…so, it was much harder than I thought it was going to be! it also allowed me to showcase my gorilla walk.

    Boo burpees indeed!

    Finished that (way more difficult than expected) WOD in 16 minutes flat…pretty freaking slow, but I did it.

    I think I kept getting distracted by Joshorn’s gorilla impression.

    Tough first day back! Josh goshorn is truly a bear!
