I recently introduced Yosh to Twitter (@YoshRX in case you’re interested in following his tweets) and as I was showing him all of the nifty CrossFit accounts to follow I thought I’d share them with you!
Now I’m not the biggest Twitter fan, but I do like to follow a few accounts for a good laugh or some interesting information. Again Faster (@AgainFaster) tweets their stories as well as online deals for their website. CrossFit Endurace (@CFEndurance) tweets Endurance WODs. Whole Foods (@WholeFoods) tweets special deals they have for the week as well as recipe ideas! Rich Froning (@rich_froning) and Spencer Hendel (@Spec1414) also post their workouts to shame the rest of the twitter universe. The CrossFit Games (@CrossFitGames) posted all the Open workouts as well as up-to-date info throughout each weekend and people responded with their reactions….needless to say there was a bit of twitter outrage after 12.1 was released.
In my opinion, the two most entertaining accounts are “Crossfit Problems” (@CrossfitProblms) and “Crossfit Barbie” (@xFitBarbie). Do you guys have any favorite accounts? If you don’t have twitter consider this, even Coach Burgener has an account (@coachburgener).
Editor’s note: If you’ve met Yosh, his Twitter feed is hilarious. Also, I’ve been remiss in the maintenance of the CrossFit Fenway account, and I apologize.

Snatch Deadlift 3-3-3-3-3
*You may rest in a pike position (the top of a push-up), but once you cannot do push-ups any longer and need to rest on the ground, a penalty is counted and you must immediately sprint 40 yards. Once the penalty is completed continue with the push-ups.
Tim Pennell is running the Boston Marathon as a member of the MassGeneral Marathon Team. As part of the team he’s raising $5,000 for the MassGeneral Hospital for Children Cancer Center.

Please consider donating $26 – $1 for every mile he runs. Here’s Tim’s fundraising page. CrossFit has been an integral part of his training, so you know Tim’s going to kick some serious ass for a great cause.
