Strength training on the prowler

Today I did another strength routine on the prowler, no puking this time!  My trainer and I also verified the weight of the prowler we use, and its heavier than we thought.  No wonder I puked last time!!  We thought the prowler weighed in at ~50 lbs, but it is actually around 75 lbs…  that…

X Training or cross fit?

I was asked today what the difference between cross fit and X training is.  Actually I have no idea how to answer that question.  They both hurt, make you sweat a lot, and both use similar exercises.  I guess the biggest difference that I notice is the structure of the workout.  the focus with X…
