Tomorrow morning, I plan on springing this one on a couple of unsuspecting dudes who haven't tried it yet.

(sinister laugh)

You still in town, Andy?

Mike,
Yeah, still in town. Work schedule still pretty erratic, and it follows that my sleep schedule is even more erratic.

I'm working a mix of 7a-7:30p days, with a few 7p-7:30a nights thrown in for OT, so most of your scheduled classes are out, due to their proximity to 7am/7pm.

Been doing my workouts either at the Hollywood 24hrFitness(across the street from my apt, surprisingly haven't been reprimanded there) or my apartment gym(treadmills, DBs up to 50s, pull-up & dip rack, place to hang rings).

The times I have tentatively planned to make it out, my body disagreed and told me it would rather sleep in.

Rhabdo case in Atlanta

Yesterday I learned that one of our guys in Atlanta went to the hospital 2 days after his Pain Jacket, and was admitted for 4 days to treat Rhabo. Thanks to a lecture we had from a CrossFitting MD a few weeks back he knew the symptoms and also knew to get himself to the E Room ASAP. He's on the mend and should be back working out soon, but it was a wake up call. Everyone should get education on Rhabdo.

This is a big guy with a powerlifting background who had been doing some very hard workouts with us for several months, so it's not limited to guys just starting.

Best wishes to Big Steve for a full and speedy recovery!

Well...he's got total bragging rights as far as this workout's concerned.

Nobody top him, ok?!

At 50 and 170 lbs I pulled:

1000 in 3:57 @ 1:59 pace and 33 spm
750 in 2:54 @ 1:59 pace and 33 spm
500 in 1:56 @ 1:56 pace and 34 spm
250 in 0:54 @ 1:40 pace and 39 spm

Don't know what my push press times were but they slowed my progress and gave me a 27:40 total time. We are moving 18,750 lbs with the push press portion (unless you are Andy and then you are moving an even 20,000 lbs). That's 2,500 meters of rowing and 250 reps of lifting in a half hour. Great work everyone.

I wear my jacket proudly. This one goes up on the board at CrossFit PC for sure.

Uh ohhh, I did it wrong. I got the push press count right but I messed up the rows. I was supposed to do all 500's. Do I get credit for time served or do I have to go out and do it again? Or do you guys want to try on a larger jacket?

Am I remembering this wrong or is there a posting with the rows descending from 1,000 out there someplace? I could have sworn that was the way I saw it. The 500 meter rows are not enough time off the push press for me. Oh, and I did the rows first...man, sometimes I just don't pay attention.

Eug, think there was a front page WOD round about the time Mike graced us with this beast that included shortening row intervals. End of the day you did more work so enjoy your even larger jacket o' pain. Believe me, it will fit even better over the next couple of days:blush:

Cheers, kempie

As recorded 15:36

All rows completed 1:42 - 1:44. This one plays to my strengths. I wnet in totally focussed and pumped, came out unable to stand from the rower and in a world of pain for a good 3 minutes after. Thought I was going to blow a lung!
24 hours later some interesting pain emerging!

Great WOD. Grabbed the attention of the other gym users!
