Yeah, that feeling.

CFNE Internal Team Throwdown!

Coming up THIS Saturday — Click HERE to register!

Hey CFNE — Helping Kenya!

Many of you have asked how we can continue to support our “partner-students” at the CFNE school in Guro, Kenya. Although it is exceedingly difficult and costly to ship boxes to Kenya, Dallin Frampton, the project leader for Hope for Kenya (CF HQ), has offered to bring a large bag to Kenya for us on his next trip. So we will be doing two collections:
1) We will be collecting colorful erasers (for pencils) and small boxes of colored chalk at the CFNE Internal Team Throwdown on June 15th. If you won’t be at the throwdown, you can donate for a few weeks after that as well.
2) We will be ordering CFNE t-shirts, which the Guro principal can give out as a reward for doing well on tests, showing up on time, always doing neat and tidy work in school, etc.You can “sponsor a student” by purchasing a t-shirt and then, to make it more personal, writing a note (hey great job, keep up the good work, hard work pays off) to be given with the shirt.  More details on this to follow.
You all are the best!! The students and parents are more grateful to CFNE than you will ever know.
The collection box is located at the front desk!

  1. Well crap.

    • Sara C

      You’re welcome.

      • You’re not my favorite person right now.

        • Laura c

          Are you gonna barf holding the bar like that? Impressive.

        • Sara C

          Hey, it’s badass not to drop the bar. I totally would just drop the bar. And I almost typed “to not drop” but then realized that’s a split infinitive and there’s nothing a lawyer hates more than a split infinitive. Oh, except maybe a photo that kiiiinda mayyybe looks like you just crapped out an iced coffee.

      • Big Mike

        Thank you for my new screen saver

    • Please don’t call me a lawyer in my CrossFit time…I’d rather be the iced coffee pooper guy. And judging by this picture I’m only a few clicks from being an Internet meme. Guess I can scratch that off the list.

    • Maureen B.

      haha this picture makes me laugh, love it.

    • Big Mike

      How does this guy beat me in workouts?

    • Fake Doug Bell

      I like the picture. Just make sure you have a red bumper on next time you take that pose. And untie those shoes.

    • rich t

      HO – nice. never, ever seen this before. i am going to try this next time. i may be master of the obvious on this, but are you drying your hands? this is ground breaking stuff.

      CFNE and CrossFit Folks World Wide, i am taking orders for chalk infused long socks at $50 per pair, and chalk refill kits (piece of chalk) at $20. just patented this a few minutes ago. Look it up under ‘the Ho Hold Chalk Sock’.

    • sarah wilson

      Is your crotch helping or hurting in that photo? It’s unclear.

    • Braatz

      This comment thread is gold. Pure gold.

    • Oh boy, first thing I thought of when I saw this was Steve Martin in The Jerk. Ho, it looks like you found your “special purpose” and well…it seems to have a special purpose!

    – Start reading the WOD before class which I never do.
    – Start recording my WOD after class which again I never do.

    Here we go.

    8-18 @ 3,6,9
    19-30 @ 2,4,6

    DT- 85LBs
    Didn’t time myself bc/ I was outside by myself.
    Weight felt good but my grip started to go by the 3rd rnd.

    Clean & Jerk 3 rds @170# missed a round and stripped to 155# for the last three.

  29. Chelsea and DT left me immobilized. Now way could I lift. So goat work:

    5k – 28:25…ug
    100 sit-ups for time – 4:20…ug
    5 minutes of DUs…ug

    Now off to do something I’m actually good at…softball!!

  30. Chris L. (Bruzzo)

    Great to be back in the box today after a lengthy layoff for a number of reasons.
    Kinda Chelsea (PUs have now been added to the shoulder No-No list)
    EMOTM: 5 DL (BW @ 195#), 10 PushUps, 15 ARSQs
    8 quick rounds then fell apart fast…but it’s a start.

    Power clean – 1st rd 195#, next 5 165#
    Power clean and jerk – 155#

    10×1 Front Squat OTM – 225#

    Dropped weight per MDV on the PCs and ended up realizing a major flaw in all my lifts… I don’t use my posterior chain at all. Actually he realized it, so thanks to MDV once I work through the tightness and stiffness in my back and hips and actually use the right muscles I’ll probably lift a ton more and all my lifts will feel better/right.

    Successful, breakthrough night. The “a-ha” moment.

  38. Double session –

    DL 5 x 5 up to 315
    Bench 5 x 5 up to 235

    Snatch 120#

  39. Snatch. 35lbs form form form. Hated it.
    CJ 75 lbs felt great.
