So you would probably say that I’m in pretty good shape right? I got a little 4-pack trying to peek through, flexing my shoulders and biceps to show some definition. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself…and I did. I SWORE that I was in shape.
The reality is that I LOOKED like I was in shape, which was exactly what I wanted…the “looks”. I never truly focused on my actual “strength” beyond being able to bench press about 85lbs, or leg press about 225lbs (still not bad, but it didn’t really mean much either).
“Black Chicks WOD” was created to share my story (and hopefully the stories of other “BCdubs” ) and encourage more Black Chicks to become a part of the CrossFit community. I want you to know that you are more than capable of taking on the challenge of a challenging WOD and excelling at “The Sport of Fitness”, because as a woman (regardless of color, creed, culture, ethnicity, etc.) you have likely already endured more than most men could even imagine.
Bring it all to a “box”, go hard and sweat it off.
