I did the intro session at my local Crossfit yesterday. After the standard "this is what Crossfit is and this is why we think it's great" we went through the workout.
First part was some sort of sandbag carry where you throw a rucksack filled with sand over your shoulder, take it a distance, run back to where you started, run back, and do it again. I'm not sure how heavy my bag was, but we did five of these. Next was burpees - ten of them. Last was "wall balls," fifteen of them, and I used a 20lb ball. It was a ten minute timed workout.
I got 2.5 circuits done. I was doing great on the rucksack things...then came burpees. I couldn't make it through ten of them without stopping, nevermind that my form on them is terrible (and they are a miserable, awful movement).
Anyway, I liked it overall. I signed up for a month of Crossfit. The first two weeks is "foundation" classes, where they go over a different aspect each time. After that, you can do any of the WOD sessions, olympic lifting sessions, benchmarking, etc.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.
A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.
robbing with a sword is a good thing
