    I got around to today’s WOD…. tonight.

    155, 175, scratch on 185, 175, 185, scratch on 190, 185.

    I’m so out of shape 😦

  2. R Walker says:

    Whoops, I was doing push presses. I couldn’t watch any of the CF videos on my ipod at the gym, so I (incorrectly) assumed what to do.

    Guess that’s what I get for being outta the gym and outta the routine for so long….

  3. Holly says:

    I did the row/push press with #65 in 18:54.

    Yesterday I did front squats 95# 3X5. Jenna B and Megan are awesome with front squats over 100#. I think I need to come to the gym, for a little encouragement. Maybe if Jason ever lets me out, I can meet some of you:)

    195-205-210-215-220-225f(small press)-225

    1st day back from my bout with Death. Felt decent – 225 is an overhead PR. In an effort to save the knees for whatever tomorrow brings, these were all performed as split jerks rather than push jerks.

  5. mcnaughton says:

    195-205-210-215-220-225f(med. press)-225 (debatable)

    my form sucks on this…need to dip lower.

  6. Jason says:

    185-195-195-205-215(f)-215(awsome f weights all over the parking lot…it was epic)-195

    then 5k run 22:30

    then had to get home to let Holly out of the basement so she could make dinner…

    I love this workout but i f’ing hate it because i can’t get my right arm to straighten damn it! 65(f) arm- 65(f)arm again- 60(f) f’ing arm- 60(f) arm-55-60… let just cut the damn thing off! As Josh told Megan yesterday- there is nothing to blame but yourself in CF!

  8. babs says:

    100 push-ups
    100 sit-ups
    100 squats
    first time doing sit-ups w/o ab mat or something holding my feet. also on my 2nd hangover in a row.
    almost puked.

  9. wb416 says:

    Tried these at home and pretty much sucked.

    90, 110, 130, 140, 160F, 150F (partial), 150F

    These explosive movements are my bane…. so much to still learn…

  10. Neil says:

    145-155-175(f-mistake)-165- 170(press)-170(press)- 170(f)

    I was working on getting under the bar on the 170 attempts. I never got completely under the bar on any of them. I was close on the last one but was pissed and just dropped the bar.

  11. Tim says:


    There’s the weak shoulders, Stephen

  12. GregH says:


    I should have started heavier. I could have been a contender… haha

  14. Stephen says:

    Tim – by my rough calculations, you put 115% bodyweight overhead. Not too shabby at all. Just keep going overhead, and keep going heavy. Or don’t – I kind of like having at least one thing over you.

    As for you and your epic f, Jason, I hereby vow to never again let a 1 RM jerk go unrecorded.

  15. Brent says:

    195 – 205 – 215 – 220 (slight press) – 220 – 225 (teeny tiny press finish, damnit – twice)

    5 box jumps 44″
    5@ 46″
    5″ 48
    psyched out at 49″ was exhausted by then

  16. Megan says:

    80-85-85-90(press)-90(press)-90f-90f really looking forward to getting 95, thought it might happen today. Ah well. Today was super fun! Box (bumper plate) jumps 26x 5 28×5 30×5. Today I also messed around with pullups today and can now string five kips together as opposed to singles. I also managed to do a couple of dead hang pullups. I LOVE crossfit!! The progress is incredible!

  17. Scott says:


    My hips were garbage today. Dip was terrible. Had the enjoyment of going after Nick who used no effort to push jerk 100 lbs more than me. He is not human.

    F-bomb update: 1/2 an f bomb spoken towards the end of the workout. Goal is no f bombs
