    • You go girl!

      How did the DUs go?

      • Decent. I was stringing together 4-5 at a time. Realized my personal rope was about two inches too short tonight after trying a cfne rope. Hopefully that adjustment will help.

        • Yeah, I prefer a longer rope – something to do with clearing my ponytail.

          Good for you! (I’m stuck at 15, and trying to get to 35 consecutive.)

    • Amanda S.

      Awesome job on the max reps, you were fighting!

    • nice job with the squat medley – so strong!

  19. Box squat: 165
    Lot ‘o squats: 26 @ 110#

    Spaghetti legs

  20. Day 7 of Coach B’s 23 day Bulgarian program – So smoked going into this even tho I rested all weekend and have been eating perfect Zone paleo for a while now. Program is demanding.

    Power Snatch – 140 5×2 – first two sets I did ok but then took one off the pubic bone and I was cashed from then on. I strugggled with this one. Had to lower to 135 after the third set. None of it was pretty.

    Power Clean + jerk – 185 5×1 – this was better. Still plenty of work to get my jerk in line for my goals.

    Fsq – 235 x1, 220 1×2
    GHD 3×20

    • I’ve been thinking for three minutes how to ask this without it sounding like a double entendre, but alas there is no other way…HOW THE HECK DID YOU TAKE A SNATCH OFF THE PUBIC BONE???

      • poorly timed second pull potsy. I need that bounce esp. for power snatches.

    • Megan B

      Maybe not your best day ever (damn that sounded painful), but you kept working through it. That counts for a lot.

  21. Box squat: 265#
    Medley: 30 at 170#

    Didn’t feel safe where I did these so kept weights and reps light.

  22. Amanda S.

    Box Squat: 210#
    Squat Medley: 24 at 125

    Awesome job Kelli and Michelle! Legs are SMOKED.

  23. Box Squat: 315lb felt good
    Squat Medley: 22 at 180… Hmmm not what I wanted.

    Thanks for the encouragement john and the 730pm class. Helped A LOT!

  24. Hey everyone. New to CFNE – start of my first full week @ 5:30pm. Loved the squat progression today!

    Box Squat: 275# (loaded to 295#, but time ran out) – 275# felt easy-ish so I think I left a lot on the table… felt like I could’ve hit 305#-315#

    Medley 18 reps @ 185#… Made the mistake of pausing at the bottom of my 19th and couldn’t stand back up. Completely settled down on my heels.

    3×10 – Banded GH Raises

    Really excited to join the CFNE Family. Thanks to Mel for correcting issues in my squat technique, and Max for cheering me on.

    Loved the squat progression today!

  25. Box Squat 315, 10# below last week, no attempt at 325# this week
    Medley (27) @ 200#

  26. Box Squat: 165 (20# less than last week, no belt today)
    Medley: 30 @ 105#
    GHR: 6, 8, 8

  27. Maureen B.

    Medley: 31 @ 85#

  28. PaulBrick

    Box Squat: 315#

    405 Box Squat
