Day 2 back at the gym -- it was nice to see some more familiar faces!

Worked up to 45lb bar on bench press.

Found that I can back squat.  Worked up to 95lb for now.  I think I mainly need to not lose focus when moving weight on and off the bar.

Tested a couple strict pull-ups.  They felt OK.  Main concern is not to be careless jumping onto the bar.

Underhand rows.  Did 85lbx2, then dropped to 65 for round 3 so I wasn't pushing myself.

Speed bench: 43#

WOD: 9 rounds w/ 18" PU and knee raises. (Oopsie- thought it was an AMRAP 10- I know, doesn't make any sense on all fronts) Coach capped the workout at 9min. So AMRAP 9.

3X12 @ 43# barbell rows

A CLee sighting...bench presses...and I had a friend show up at 6am - talk about a good start to Friday!

Speed Bench: 145# and shared a bench with Long and Chris S...it was good sludging through it with those guys.  We only got through 6 rounds.

WOD: I finished 6 rounds in the unofficial 9 minute time cap...I just couldn't get the kipping timing down for the T2Bs.  Looks like another skill to add to my 'need to improve' list!

BB Rows: Hit these unbroken at 135#...hooray for lat work!

Post Class: MU work with Jillian - she's so close!  Handstand work (keep vertical neck straight, find a good pace) and then a bar MU at the prompting of Long to close things out.

See you sexy people at the beach tomorrow...

BP @ 53#, four of us on the bar so we only got through 7 rounds

Work - Somehow I thought this was 5 rounds and underscaled the pushups.  6 rounds at 16", strict knee ups ... got in a 7th round of pushups on the 24" bar

underhand barbell rows @ 53#

Bench Press- got through 7 rounds at 53#

WOD- got through 7 rounds at the 9 min cap, 24" bar for push ups, knee raises

BB rows 3x12- 53#, forgot to take Jillian's weight off the last set and did 58# which required stopping a few times to reset. Need to work more on strengthening lats/back in general.

Sad to miss beach day tomorrow. Will be in NYC. Have fun all!

Bench Press: 6 rounds at 90.  I thoguht we got 7, but Adam is claiming 6 so I'll believe him.


5 rounds. I used the pushup bar because I thought that would be what limited me but I was totally wrong.  The toes to bar killed my grip quickly. I could have done my pushups on the floor.

Shared a bar with John and CLee. Worked at 75 and got through 7 rounds. Bench Press felt good. I need to make sure my right shoulder doesn't get out of position. 

WOD I got through 7 rounds doing RX pushups with strict knee raises. The pushups slowed down in the fifth set. The knee raises snuck up on me a little bit.

For whatever reason this week has been a grind. I felt like I was dragging myself through WODs but the week is just about over and I didn't let the couch win. Small Victories!

Nursing a case of "swellbow" so as I knock out this bursitis, it's all lower body for me. Did last nights eWOD at the box. 10x200 with walk back rest. (45, 42, 39, 37, 36, 35, 35, 34, 33, 30). Then a cash out of 250 DUs for time. 4:09. PRd in the first clip with a string of 98 (so close to 100). I'll get there. Honestly, just happy to sweat and not let this elbow keep me down.

Great WOD with the loonies.

Prior to class, did 8 Incline bench, rest 1:00, 5 3" deficit deadlifts, rest 2:00 for 4 work sets. Hit 95, 115, 2x8x135 on the bench, 275, 395, 2x5x315 on the deads.

In class, 8x3x95#. Felt solid, would have liked to move the weight faster. 9 minute cap held me at 5+5 for Shooty Shooty Gun Gun. 3x12x115 on the supinated bb rows.

As always, stoked to work out with the class.

Bench 55#, felt pretty good though I think I could be a bit more explosive. WOD 6 rounds somewhere around 12 min I think??? Did T2B and push-ups on high bar. Push-up scaling felt spot on as I was able to bang out all 10 reps without much difficulty. T2B felt great the first 2 rounds. Able to do sets of 5, then 3 in the third round. It's amazing how much your arms get smoked with these and I devolved into singles in round 4. Per Coach B, I took more rest and tried to get at least doubles during rounds 5 & 6. This is something that I need to work on more. I need to focus on closing the shoulder to get enough power to string into the next rep. Grip is also a factor as well. Overall, felt really sweaty and awesome. BB rows 3 x 12 55#

think we got to 6 rounds.  did 3x125.

Shooty Shooty Gun Gun:  Rx pushups and 6 strict hanging knee raises

Saw 10 pushups and thought, No Problem! First 6 rounds of unbroken pushups no problem but in round 7 I unexpectedly failed after 7 and in round 8 I had to break them up into 4,3,3.  Ah well.

bb rows 3x12 @ 125

Post-class Pullup Work

8x3 pullups with the medium blue band

5x3 pullups with the medium red band.

2x12 dumbbell shrugs with the 70s. 

5x12 one arm DB rows with the 30.

Bench @ 125, got through 6 rounds in our 4-man rotation.

WOD: 9:01.  Came out of the gate a little hot, Coach advised that I rest about 10 sec between movements.  Good advice.  Most pushups unbroken, but did a few "rock-backs" for a brief rest in the later rounds.  Had to start breaking up the T2B in round 5 or 6, form was getting ugly from tired arms.  Went to 5s, then 5, 3, 2.
