Re: Barbells for Boobs Results (Times)

At CrossFit KOP in PA, John Warnek had the fastest time with 1:24. You may remember him from a video a ways back of him doing Isabel...one-handed.

I personally did it in 3:54...not impressive.

Re: Barbells for Boobs Results (Times)

We had a 1:58 at our place but were pretty nazi about form. We also didn't let them take their hands off the bar unless it was on the ground, which nuked a lot of forearms but kept people from trying to bounce the weight.

I did it in about 4:30 with a chug of beer after every rep

What's up with the name for this event? Not trying to create controversy where there is none, but when you actually witness family members die of this horrible disease, the name doesn't seem so clever anymore...

Controversy where there is none. It's a fund raiser at least in part to honor those very people.

Re: Barbells for Boobs Results (Times)

I think it's great that they're raising $$

Having lost a close relative to breast cancer, I can't honestly say I'm happy w/ the name though. I mean, it's not THAT bad or anything. But still would rather see something a lil different.

I lost two grandparents to the disease and I have no problem with it so we cancel each other out.

Re: Barbells for Boobs Results (Times)

I'm happy with my time of 7:01

My coach had me only do 115lbs instead of the 135, which was fine by me as I am new to doing clean n jerks. Been going to the crossfit gym for 4 weeks now.

My goal was under 10mins so I'm happy xD

We held ours on 30 Oct
