For the care, treatment, and prevention of...the camel toe

5/13/12

Let's face it, there is no end or limit to the power of a good snatch joke. A day at the CrossFit box would not be complete without a properly timed and executed snatch joke. A trend that has been fast on the heels of the snatch joke however are the swass (and his sister swussy, and cousin swalls) jokes. These also have subcategories so perhaps a flow chart will be developed to keep everyone enlightened. If A and B, then sw____ or if A and C then sw_____. It's a complex system and you don't want to get left behind in the ugly world of swass!

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get down to business. Ladies, the camel toe is not the new black. This thing should not be making a comeback in the fitness fashion world. Yes CF clothes are usually small-ish (I'm guilty of sporting some shorter than fingertip length shorts), but small ish doesn't need to mean that your lady parts are falling out. Or that you're displaying every last curve on your body. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for having an individual fashion sense...but the camel toe, that one can stay at home! I have yet to find any kind of research linking the camel toe to increased speed and strength during a WOD...if it's out there send it to me, I'm fascinated.
If not that is it a tactic to throw your competitors off? Knock them off of their game to swoop in and take the win? What is the allure with such naughty display (or lack of) clothing?
Don't let yourself fall victim to the camel.
Friends don't let friends WOD with camel toes.
Say no to the toe

Camel toe jokes have a special place in CF joke history...nestled in snugly between snatch, bj's, swass, swanus, swussy, and all of the other sweaty jokes we can come up with. Trust me the stock is endless!

It's CrossFit, you will get sweaty. You will be disgusting. But you don't have to do so at the expense of innocent animals. Sweat on. Camel toe free.
