  3. Braatz

    Keep Calm and Bergeron: 8RFT of 10 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 20 squats (hotel WOD in London)

    Forgot to hit ‘start’ on the timer, but rest assured it was bloody fast.

  4. Andrew Ho

    Tabata: 238 Rx (I think the breakdown was 47, 62, 129)

    Wowza on the push presses…

    Good luck this weekend, CFNE! I’ll be traveling starting this morning through Sunday, so I can’t make it. But I’m already planting seeds all over the house to let me come support you at the Games. Kick ass!!!

  5. Andy M

    Tabata: 210 (40#DB) 120squat/45cal/45db

  6. Amy B

    Tabata: 212 (25#)
    Agree with Andrew on the presses – got three rounds of 10 and then a precipitous drop to 8 and 6’s before a final 4.
    60 (DB first), 105 (squats), 47 row

    Will be sending good vibes to Canton. Conflicts with work, hockey tournament and coaching this weekend – BOO!

  7. Douglas Eisenstein

    Tabata: 233; 40# DB

  8. Heather O

    Happy Day before Friday everyone! And great job with the workout this am! :)
    3 mile run last night
    Pre-WOD this am: 1 mile (or 1 lap) of the CFNE loop.
    Tabata: 215 with #20 db. Was happy I started with these and finished on the rower. Despite an equipment malfunction on the rower I was still able to get 50 cals (so hopefull more next time)! Feels good to be back on the rower for a WOD. I believe the db were 60-65 (real rough towards the end) and squats were 100-105 ish.

    Have a great day everyone and best of luck this weekend competitors. I wish I could come cheer you on! Ill be rooting for you all! :)

  9. Rachel E

    Tabata: 225 (25# DB) — presses were way harder than I anticipated.

    Can’t wait to be in the sea of red cheering this weekend! Here we go, CFNE!! : D

  10. Rob C.

    Off to Phoenix/Scotsdale today, bummer I will miss the Regionals!

    Best of luck to our TWO team and our Individual CFNE atheletes! I know you will represent. I will be thinking of you all!

    Home Tabatas today: Burpees, 12.5# DBs, squats: 5,11,12

    go 8:30!

  11. Big Mike

    Tabata: 207 Rx
    Went 59 cals/41 DB/107 Squats….DB were super heavy for me but couldnt resist the Rx this morning.

    Excited to have a day off tomorrow to watch both teams and Kate and Heather.

  12. Michelene

    Tabata: 206 (20#DB) I think I may have screwed up my count. I did 40 cals, 128 squats but I’m fairly certain I did more than 38 PPs. Or maybe not! Whatever, it was a good work out!

  13. Chris M.

    Tabata – 270 Rx’d (66/74/130)

    … DB pushpress got heavy fast …

    … so looking forward to this weekend – good luck CFNE!

  14. Rick W

    Tabata: 249 Rx. ditto on the dumbells
    5X8 butterfly pullups OTM
    Squat Snatch – 5 singles at 115#
    Shaved callous off my hands (rx)

  15. Sarah S.

    Tabata: 234 (20#). Did 138 squats, 38 cal. row and 58 pp. I seriously forgot to pull hard on the first several sets of the row, I just spaced out. Don’t make the same mistake.

    Looking forward to this weekend! Good luck teams, Heather and Kate!

  16. Eddie

    Tabata: 205 (35#)
    61 cals/36 PP/108 sqts

  17. Amy B

    Latest on Erica D.

    Erica called from Camp IV and said that she and her Dad and the group were doing well. The plan would be for them to try to head up to summit at 2200 their time which is about 0900 our time today… so just a few hours.


  18. Tabata: 209 reps w/ 35# DB. Glad I started with the DBs, but those got spicy quickly. And wish I hadn’t flubbed the transition to the first round on the row.

    Good luck to Heather, Kate and our teams this weekend (and Mel too). Can’t wait to get loud in the sea of CFNE red.

  19. Kristin R

    Tabata: 194 (20#), but that’s probably a few short because I was so worried about transitioning from rowing to DBs that I didn’t even look at my cals. Oh well!

  24. Susan Stein

    Tabata: 206, maybe 204. It’s correct on the white board. 20# dumb bells. Did first couple intervals as squat dumb bell push press. Boy did I feel dumb. Got a little easier after Kevin corrected me, but then quickly got hard again.

    Extra work: 2 minute Airdyne test. Now that was spicy!

    Best of luck to all the competitors this weekend. I’ll be cheering you on as loudly as I can, which is pretty loud!

  26. Ashley r

    Tabata. 225 with 25# db. Looking forward to watching regionals tomorrow! Go get ’em CFNE!

  27. Tabata: 216 with 30# db
    Did this one alone cause I thought there was an 11:30 still…..
    Harry—thanks for setting me up! the video Tabata program was awesome.
    Liked this WOD al lot, but, realized after that I had more in my tank and should have pushed a little harder on row and air squats, in particular.
    Good luck at regionals—GO CFNE!!!

    sloppy on the DBs, man I was too winded to push them up right.

    mobility and a little TTB work after class.

    Heather, Kate, and Teams A & B: Tonight, I hope you relax in the same high quality way you train — resting, relaxing, and visualizing a BIG FAT WIN.

    Tabata: 255 rx gamed this workout too much today by trying to pace myself through the rounds instead of going after max rounds.
