Reply Sara C on May 13, 2013 at 8:29 pm I claim the 6# ball! Rx, baby! Reply Heather Bergeron on May 13, 2013 at 8:52 pm I WISH wrist creases were that cute on me Reply Sara C on May 13, 2013 at 9:34 pm OMG, you have SO many of them. You should really work out more! Reply smw on May 13, 2013 at 9:37 pm there is nothing like ruber band wrists Reply Megan B on May 13, 2013 at 10:24 pm Erica D update: Her team is at Camp 1 right now, the first of 4 stops on their bid to summit Everest, and will be moving to Camp 2 shortly. It sounds like they overnight at Camps 2, 3, and 4, so it’ll be a couple of days before they make their summit bid (weather permitting, of course). Per reports from her mom, she’s doing well so far. She and her dad are being smart. Will keep you all posted! Reply Sarah S. on May 14, 2013 at 9:21 am Thanks Megan! We’re rooting for you Erica! Reply Megan B on May 14, 2013 at 1:32 pm More info from her mom, from 5/13/13 at around midnight Boston time: Erica and her Dad and others in her party are now at Camp 2 and they are all doing well. The weather is good despite the concern of the cyclone over the Bay of Bengal. The plan is to go to camp 3 tomorrow by this time (i.e. Tuesday night) and then camp 4 the next day (i.e. Wednesday night) with late night climb to the summit after…. All provided weather holds… Reply Doole on May 13, 2013 at 10:38 pm Hi just a heads up, Registration for the Bay State Games weightlifting competition is now open. If you are interested please let me know. More info can be found here: http://www.baystategames.org/weightlifting I am available to coach people for private sessions leading up to the meet and of course will coach participating athletes at the event. If you’re interested please let me know! Thanks! Reply Doole on May 13, 2013 at 10:40 pm ps. You will want to register soon. They have capped this event in the past. tnx Reply Megan B on May 13, 2013 at 11:20 pm This is REALLY fun! Potsy, Big Mike, and I all lifted in this meet last year. It’s a great place to learn how to lift in an Oly meet. Plus singlets! Hooray for singlets! (Okay, not really. I wore mine to CFNE a few times before the meet just to get used to being in it. It was .0001% less horrifying that way.) But yeah, if you’ve wanted to compete, this is an awesome place to start. Plus, I think I’m going to do it, even though my lifts are way off of last year. Thanks a LOT, tree/shoulder/wrist. Reply Doug Eisenstein on May 14, 2013 at 6:54 am 11:14 (around that) Rx weights and movements but messed up alternating hands 1×1 for DB snatch, I did 5 on each hand. Reply Andrew Ho on May 14, 2013 at 7:08 am Taste Test: 13:23 Rx First time I’ve ever taped my hands and it worked. Thanks, Chad. Off the wall balls in 2:10…which means once again spent a huge majority of my time navigating pull-ups. Baby steps to improvement…like baby baby. Reply laura c on May 14, 2013 at 7:14 am ill do your pull ups if u do my wall balls?? Reply Chad M on May 14, 2013 at 7:36 am Glad it helped. That’s why I tape any time I touch the barbell, pull up rig or KB. I don’t think patients would like me touching their body with bloodied hands. Reply Andrew Ho on May 14, 2013 at 7:42 am Seems fair. Reply Sean on May 14, 2013 at 4:22 pm I love the Again Faster grips definitely cuts down on cuts Reply Chad M on May 14, 2013 at 7:34 am Taste Test. 11.05Rx DB Snatch wasn’t bad, who would’ve thunk it?? Reply Andy M on May 14, 2013 at 7:37 am Taste Test – 13:46 Rx Lost count on wall balls so not sure if did 60 or 50, but think I did them all. Reply Andy M on May 14, 2013 at 7:37 am sorry 14:36 Reply Tricia D on May 14, 2013 at 7:38 am Taste Test: 13:54 (10#,sm green band, 20″,20#) WBs were not to blue every time. Need to go back to practicing these. Reply Michelene on May 14, 2013 at 2:12 pm Great job! I hear ya on the wall balls. I asked to be in the 3rd heat because I was worried they would take me longer than 4 minutes!! Reply Scott W on May 14, 2013 at 7:47 am Taste Test: 14:54 20# WB, 30DB. I swear the box got taller as time went on. Reply Andy M. on May 14, 2013 at 6:17 pm Or you got shorter bending over to keep your lungs in your chest. Reply Larry on May 14, 2013 at 7:57 am 12:42 Reply Amy B on May 14, 2013 at 8:00 am 12:40 Rxish I repeated some wall balls but sure some others weren’t quite regulation height. So I don’t deserve a true RX. Felt real good on the Snatches, slow and steady through box jumps and pull ups. Pooey on you wall balls. Reply Megan B on May 14, 2013 at 8:53 am Did any hit you in the face? That, to me, is always the true barometer of a challenging wall-ball day. Reply Colleen (OC) on May 14, 2013 at 8:41 am Taste Test: 14:09 with a 10# wall ball and a 15# DB. Just under 4 minutes to finish the wall balls, ugh. And yes, I did do the pull ups, despite tearing my hands last week. They healed nice and quick. Snatches were probably too light, but my back and my hamstrings thank me for that today. Wasn’t going to get out of bed today. Glad I did! Reply Sarah S on May 14, 2013 at 8:41 am Taste Test: 12:10 Rx. First half of wb felt okay, slowed way down after that. I liked the dumb bell snatches! Reply Colleen (OC) on May 14, 2013 at 8:56 am BEAST!!!! Reply Tricia D on May 14, 2013 at 12:52 pm Wow, great job!!! Reply Sarah S on May 14, 2013 at 8:52 am Taste Test: 12:10 Rx. First half of wb felt okay, slowed way down after that. I liked the dumb bell snatches! Got to watch a few minutes of our competitors doing burpees/mu. They looked so strong and can’t wait to cheer them on this weekend! Reply Katrina on May 14, 2013 at 9:40 am Nice work Sarah! Reply Alison on May 14, 2013 at 6:46 pm Holy cow – fast!! Reply dennis on May 14, 2013 at 8:54 am taste test – 13:40 with 40DB Reply Big Mike on May 14, 2013 at 8:58 am Taste Test: 11:07 Rx Might be a new favorite WOD. Lots or reps but you can keep moving. Not sure I’d survive this in 100 rep rounds though! Instructions for the rest of the week: Wednesday: start with cough and sniffles Thursday: forget to brush your hair and teeth Friday: call in sick, then get to Canton to watch our teams and individuals at Northeast Regional. Need the Red Sea to give them all home court advantage!!! Reply Sarah S. on May 14, 2013 at 12:36 pm I like this plan. Reply Michelene on May 14, 2013 at 9:16 am Taste Test: 13:23 with lots of scaling – 10#WB,sm band PUs, 20″box & 20#DB Bringing the whole family to the games this Saturday, my belated mother’s day present:) Go CFNE!!! Reply Tricia D on May 14, 2013 at 12:53 pm Great job! Reply Chris M. on May 14, 2013 at 9:29 am Taste Test – 9:19 Rx’d … need to work on building some pull-up volume … feel like I’m breaking these up too much lately … Reply Sean on May 14, 2013 at 4:23 pm Flying Reply Katrina on May 14, 2013 at 9:39 am Taste Test 15:53 or 23…I forget….oopps.. RX ran 1 loop of the 5k Reply Rick W on May 14, 2013 at 9:41 am Taste Test – 11:07 Rx 400’s 6X on the 3 minutes – each round was at 1:31 (wierd). Reply Lara on May 14, 2013 at 9:44 am Day off today and a treat to join the 8:30’s Thanks Ben and Harry! 11:19 6#, JP, SU, 15# Reply michelle on May 14, 2013 at 10:19 am Great meeting you! Reply JoeV on May 14, 2013 at 12:22 pm Great job sweetie! Reply Craig B. on May 14, 2013 at 9:46 am Taste test: 8:52 rx Reply Braatz on May 14, 2013 at 3:29 pm Yowza. Reply Wendy P on May 14, 2013 at 9:48 am Taste test: 13:16. 10#WB, 20 pull ups, 24″BJ, first 15 db snatch at 15# ( too light) switched to 25# for the last 15 Reply denise sullivan on May 14, 2013 at 3:07 pm nice job wendy, very cute daughter as well Reply Rachel E on May 14, 2013 at 9:49 am Taste Test: 15:31 (Rx except WBs were between 9′ and 10′ line) DB snatches are a new fave but pullups became singles WAY early. I don’t know where they’ve gone but I’ve declared May to be Pullup Practice Month to find them. Practice buddies welcome! Reply laura c on May 14, 2013 at 10:37 am me too…they seem to be getting worse?? Reply Ashley R on May 14, 2013 at 11:03 am funny you say that because I seem to tire quickly too. We’ll see how they go today when I go at noon! Reply John S. on May 14, 2013 at 9:59 am Taste Test: 16:15 (12#,20″,20#) Reply Andy L on May 14, 2013 at 10:05 am Taste Test: 15:53 (first 15 DB snatches were 40#, next 15 were 45#… almost Rx) Blerg. I really liked this wod – but need to pick up the pace on the pullups and boxjumps. Got some sets of 4-5 DU’s before class. Progress. Reply Jerry on May 14, 2013 at 10:16 am TT: 13:53 9′, 24″, 40# Reply michelle on May 14, 2013 at 10:19 am TT: 12:11 only 43 pull ups-hand circulation thing. rest rx. I like chippers. Reply Ali G on May 14, 2013 at 12:57 pm knew you would do great. Reply Annmarie on May 14, 2013 at 10:32 am Taste Test: 11:09 10#WB, 20 pull ups, 20″ box jumps, 20# DB snatches Reply laura c on May 14, 2013 at 10:37 am nice job!!! Reply laura c on May 14, 2013 at 10:40 am taste test: 14:44 10# WB, 25# DB – rest rx Not sure why I lost my pu early – maybe the wb have something to do with it. So, I have resigned myself to go lighter and lower and the WB and get the stimulus and string a bunch together – I am less frustrated this way – I will soon move up the weight and then the height. 24 inch BOX JUMPS felt really good to me…strange I like chippers too! Def my fav type of WODS and the DB snatches got easier once harry and ben helped with form = liked them! Reply denise sullivan on May 14, 2013 at 3:07 pm maybe i should try that w a 10 or 12 # ball….is it working? Reply Laura c on May 14, 2013 at 4:32 pm I feel more satisfied with it. It won’t help me during opens or competitions when I need to do rx but my form is way better and my back hurts better… And ego a bit better:)! Reply John G on May 14, 2013 at 10:44 am Taste Test – 11:11 rx Reply marissa on May 14, 2013 at 11:01 am taste test: 14:55 Rx my pull ups are SO slow… but i love this wod! pre-work out: 1 mile run (thanks jen!) great day at CFNE! Reply rap on May 14, 2013 at 11:05 am Love the super moms/ladies (oh, and Will) at the 8:30am class. What a bunch of hard-working, bad-asses. Need to get to that class more. Reply Colleen (C4!) on May 14, 2013 at 2:50 pm Dude, everyone was thinking “Rap is, here, work extra hard, he’s the original bad ass….” Reply michelle on May 14, 2013 at 6:00 pm Great to see you, Rap! Reply Dan C. on May 14, 2013 at 8:31 pm You forgot to post your time Reply Deb R on May 14, 2013 at 11:28 am Taste Test: 12:13 10#WB, KB in lieu of PU’s (ripped hands), 24″step up/jump down, 25# DBS (I liked these). Didn’t do one movement RX, but I had a blast! Reply denise sullivan on May 14, 2013 at 11:31 am tt:12:26 wb 8# (should have gone 10# even though one of the last to finish, however held strict 10′ standard) pu’s rx 24″ bj’s rx 15# dumb bell (should have added wt) Reply Judi on May 14, 2013 at 5:36 pm Ditto…except 12:45ish and 20″ bjs. Reply Jamie on May 14, 2013 at 11:36 am Tank Top Tuesday Taste Test ? Reply Kristin R on May 14, 2013 at 11:54 am Taste Test: 15:08 (i think?). 10# WB, step ups and 20# DB. Should have gone heavier on the DB – those were not as bad as I expected! Reply Tricia D on May 14, 2013 at 1:05 pm Great job! You can totally get on that box, just a matter of doing it and not thinking about the potential of not making it.(i know, easier said than done, but you’ve def got it!) Reply Michelene on May 14, 2013 at 2:11 pm Great job today guys! Kristin – I’m so impressed with your Rx pull ups. I tried a couple for warm up and could barely do one. Ugh. One of these days! Reply Kristin R on May 14, 2013 at 3:38 pm Thanks, Tricia – did a couple on a stone wall in our backyard after the workout today. Not Rx, but baby steps! Reply JoeV on May 14, 2013 at 12:02 pm Taste Test: 16# WB, 24″ Box, 35# DB Reply Susan Stein on May 14, 2013 at 12:26 pm Taste Test: 14:51 (8# ball, skinny green band pull ups, 20″ box, 20# dumb bell) Scaled everything. Should have used 10# ball and my pull ups were so slloooww, but it was oddly still very satisfying. Good day 9:30! Reply Rich P on May 14, 2013 at 12:30 pm Run 3.5 miles (not timed) 2×10 pushups (planned for more, shoulder didn’t feel right) Still battling schedule, but sneaking in what I can when I can.

I dreaded doing this in the barn, even scaled. But I did it. Hard to have a chipper where 3 of the 4 movements are goats. Determined to keep posting so I keep myself honest AND keep track of CFNE goings on. I miss you guys!
