My son wrote this letter last night. I managed to snap a quick picture before it went in the envelope.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
If you’re not familiar with the CrossFit classic hero WOD Murph here’s the workout:
1 mile run
100 pull ups
200 push ups
(partition pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as you see fit)
1 mile run
Competitive athletes may
1. Hydrate! With water (not beer, you lushes). And I mean LOTS of water!!! When you feel sufficiently hydrated, drink a little more. You’ll thank me for it tomorrow.
2. Don’t overdue it today… no intense WODs that are going to cripple you for tomorrow. It’s a good day to rest or do a strength WOD focused on shoulders. Your legs will be sufficiently brutalized tomorrow. Give them the day off today.
3. Hand care 101 – take a file to those calluses! Nothing ruins a good post-WOD bbq like blood in the chips & dip. Nuff said.
4. Eat a LOT. Plenty of fat and protein today will help ensure you have plenty of gas in the tank tomorrow. A couple of bacon burgers with avocado will do the trick.
5. Plan your post-WOD meal… Sweet potatoes with coconut oil immediately after are my favorite. Invite yourself to someone else’s spread where there will be lots to munch on. Now you can have that beer.

So obviously, when I spotted strongman coach and competitor Brandon Morrison’s Lift Big Eat Big: How To Get Big While Doing Crossfit article I pounced on it.
There are three key points to their article:
