1/4 WOD

Bench Press:
After my first fail at 5 x 165 (my bodyweight), I considered going down to get five full reps. Maybe I should have, but I was psyched to get 4 reps @ 165 on my last try.

AMREP 5 – Handstand Push Ups = 13 (after the 12th it took over a minute to get the 13th, and then just barely)
AMREP 4 – Medball Cleans = 54 (really liked my number here)
AMREP 3 – Toes to Bar = 27 (also liked my number here. I "kicked" my toes up toward the bar at the end so I was able to make legit contact)
AMREP 2 – Burpees = 18 (ugh. Yay burpees!)
AMREP 1 – Jump Lunges = 31 (liked my number here. Struggled one at a time until last 10 seconds or so when I went full bore).
Total = 143

This was a nice WOD. I think even if we had 10 minutes for HSPU's I wouldn't have gotten too many more -- maybe because of bench presses. Otherwise, great time increments for each movement.

Happy New Years to one and all!!

Welcome Martha, Alden, & Mark!!

[QUOTE=David Cahn;1019088]Great job everyone.

We did the hero WOD "Murph" today. A fitting way to celebrate the New Year. I did it in 48:30. Five days in a row at the box....a record for me.[/QUOTE]
WOW! What an AWESOME Murph time!!

[QUOTE=David Cahn;1019088]Happy New Year to all my crossfit AK's (that's short for the yiddish term Alter Kocker, old guys, but literally old ****ter :rolleyes:). It's been a great introduction to crossfit this year....made huge strides...and hope to be right here with all of you in a year reporting our successes.[/QUOTE]
LOVE that term!!!


I've been slacking since last Thursday & HAVE GOT to make up for it to keep up with ALL you guys!!

As I told a newbie in our box, as long as you do CrossFit, you will be ASTOUNDED at what you WILL be able to accomplish!!

Hollow rock practice
Partner work:
One does weighted over head lunge (30#) & 2 DB Thrusters for 20 ft, Partner does weighted "Good Mornings" (30# DB)
One does 10 scapular pulls & 10 "In and Outs" While Partner does 3 sets of 3 Push Ups (Normal, close hands, & wide hands)
One does "Bootstrapers" (squat with weight then extend legs swing weight underneath) then wide step while Partner does Paleo sits

Front squat practice (2-2-2-2-2-2-2) (45-75-95-125-145-175(f))

[I]These were from the Clean, so that was the limiting factor. Kinda bumbed since I did 2 rep Front Squats using a rack @ 205 (PR!) the night before at the [URL=""]local Globo...[/URL][/I]

20 Min AMRAP:
10 Pull Ups
5 2 Pood KB DLs
8 95# Push Press

7 rounds + 4 Pull Ups

[I]You know it sux when you are looking forward to Pull Ups. Push Presses were hard. Actually, I didn't get my groove on with them till the last rounds! Still feeling crap in my lungs from my cold!!

Perry - you've been Kick@$$![/I]
