That’s 40 seconds slower than my PR. Reply I’m back! Still taking it easy but at least I’m there. DL: 5×5 @ 165# No WOD, rowed instead. Hope to see everyone at the rowing seminars! Reply Welcome back I missed you painfully, Cassi! Did grace RX for the first time 5:??38? Reply Thanks Amy! Reply Welcome back Amiga! Looking forward to some rowing classes 🙂 Reply 7:38 Karen 315# DL 5X5 Reply 315# DL 5X5 Grace 2:08 Reply Strong work brother. Good working out with you this morning. Reply Dude!!! Nasty grace this morning! Welcome to the gym homie! Made quite a debut with that grace 🙂 Reply Corey, thank you for making my first wod at Rx super friendly, and the team work/support on the deadlifts perfect. I’ll see you Wednesday when you come back in. Kelly, thank man! I must admit it was nice to do a wod in my wheel house. I promise you my other bench marks are not like this. I almost wish it was something else, so I can offer a more realist appearance of my current load capacity. Anyways, I’m sure we’ll get there and can’t wait to grow with the gym!!! Reply Does Fran ever get any easier?!? 55# 7:50 Reply Wow! 150 Wall Balls is a lot. Karen: 8:08 Reply DL @ 275# Grace: 6:18 RX, first time ever. Reply First day back after 2 weeks and it felt like it. DL @ 215 or so. Fran Rx in 9:08. Thanks for pushing me through it Reggie! Reply DL @185# GRACE @ 6:21 RX – last time was 3:53 (this april) whahahappened?! :****( Reply DL at 105#. Fran: 55# in 9:39…ish? Thin blue band for pull ups. Reply Deadlifts #315 Karen 6:57 RX and PR would have made the board if it wasn’t for Gene’s crazy time of 5:55, way to go buddy! Reply 215 DLs 3:08-Grace Rx PR! Kelly explained a strategy of not looking away from your bar. That helped so much after I did my first 15 unbroken, then 5 (wanted to turn around after those reps but I didn’t) then 3, 2, and ended with singles but putting my hands on the bar right after dropping my bar! Thanks for the tips Coach Kelly! Reply Did Karen in 11:38? I did the first 80 or 90 with the 16 and switched to the 14. It’s an improvement over that open WOD, so I’m happy.
