I love this guild.  It seems most of the folks floating around our little forest hollow are of the highest caliber and full of support.  Couldn't find a better place for motivation and inspiration!

Found this searching for Monday gifs.  WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?

 

So that was strange...

That's a terrible house motto.  At least today's Monday is technically my Friday.  Sometimes shift work is a blessing!

Random ranger-ly thoughts from a coffee shop...

 

I just learned that the word gym comes from the greek for "naked," a reference to the ancient custom of training and competing naked. While I hardly train without clothes, it made me think. The "gym" is still a place where we get to develop a "leave it all at the door" mentality.

Related and not related, I am definitely looking forward to the day I'm comfortable enough to crush a WOD without a shirt on!

That used to be the case in my old box. Even in the middle of a workout, it was acceptable for people to take off their shirt due to excess sweat. My current box has a "no shirts off" rule, I'm guessing they had issues with showoffs in the past and/or don't want to scare of new people or give the wrong impression

 

Also, just because I couldn't help it

Rangers, call to Arms, we are going up against the other guilds (if they're man enough to show up) in a burpee PvP.

 

This is our hour of glory (well 7 mins!) prepare yourselves for victory.

 

So... have to admit I have goaded the warriors and assassins in their chat threads so we must honor the guild and not let "The World" win!!

 

At my signal unleash hell!! (anyone with a pet sidekick must be a Ranger ;) and just look at that smelly warrior hoard!)

It honestly boggles my mind that there could ever be a Crossfit gym with a 'no shirts off' rule.  I had to blink a few times to make sure I read that right.  It's just such a casual maneuver at my box, man or woman, peeling off their sweaty shirt and bashing on through the WOD.  I hardly even notice anymore.  But I can see the potential for too much showboating, and that would definitely take away from the community's atmosphere, I guess.

Hey... that so-called horde of 'smelly' warriors are my kind of people!

 

I mean, can't you see the family resemblance?

true story, this dude is from Scotland and runs a group of extras who are trained in multiple forms of historic combat, altered for stage and have been in everything from Gladiator, to Robin Hood, to Game of Thrones to Thor.

 

They own a village up in Scotland that they are building in to a dark age style village that schools can take kids to on trips to learn more about UK history. At the village is the battering ram from Robin Hood, that Russel Crowe purchased after the movie and donated

That guy is my hero.  I might have to pay that village a visit this fall.  Do you have any more info there, ItsDaniel?

Since Hammi and most of the other GLs are a bit busy right now, you can PM me and I'll put it up there.

 

If you're on a computer, you can click the big red "Follow this topic" button on the top right of the thread (bro tip: untick the "receive notifications" box in order to prevent your mail from getting flooded). Tapatalk has a similar function through a little star image on the top of a thread.

 

Once you have followed the thread, if on a computer, you can press "View New Topics" (top right) and use the "Just items I follow" filter from the column on the left. If using Tapatalk, there's a star-marked option when viewing threads, it's the same filter that shows you topics you're following.

 

That way, every time there's an update, it'll pop up on your feed. I'll keep in mind to drop a mention and a link on the General Chat thread as well, just in case.

eh... I don't "follow" anyone... I just participate... so that seems like a LOT of work (to check and see IF it's updated)... I think I like it if you just let us know when you update it's cool

 

 

so pm you... just for rangers? or ranger recruits too?
