  2. Megan B

    I love that video so much.

  3. WOW – that is AMAZING!

    • P.S. I’m SOOOO bummed I won’t be at CFNE for the 4th. And while I can’t be there with you all, I’m grateful I get to be here in Lake Placid.

  4. Andrew E

    Those are some awesome “scarecrow” elbows!

  5. Big Mike

    Snatch: 115#
    C&J: 175# (failed 1 jerk)

    And before anyone says anything, I was going to blate to my 7:00 Zumba class so I really only had 1:20.

    • 1:24 to be exact…42 cals in 1:24…it shall now be known as the Big Mike 1:24 Air Dyne Challenege. Can anyone beat 42 cals? I think not!

    • Big Mike

      I hit my threshold, looked down and I was 30 seconds in. This is not a test of fitness because once you do it once, you will never do it again.

  6. Colleen (OC)

    Double Unders


    Really frustrated in the first two rounds but the DUs progressively got better. No 2 minute drill today since I did DUs for the WOD.

    Happy 4th everyone- we are off to Fort Wayne, Indiana for the weekend! (Oh boy!)

    Jerks have improved so much! Super pumped today!

  9. Katrina

    Snatches. 105×7
    C&j 120×7

    Jerks felt great today. Anyone wanting to improve on a skill, it is highly advised to use the coaches. I took a private with Doole this weekend and he gave me some amazing tips for my jerks. Today it felt super light with no press out. Very helpful.

    I also hired Ashley with a nutrition plan. Today is day one for my zone and modified paleo plan. She listened to my needs and goals and was quick with coming up with a plan. Just by looking at it and having everything right there for me is helpful. Now it is up to me to work the plan.

    A huge thank you to both, and use the coaches….they are so helpful and knowledgable.

    Bye bye Derby City CrossFit!

    Off to Canada…CrossFit doubtful :)

  38. Christian

    530pm – 7×1

    Snatch – 125# (iffy form, but hit every lift)
    Clean & Jerk – 175# (missed a few jerks, kind of iffy form)

    I was a little smoked from yesterday and my form was off so I also do the 630.

    630pm – 7×2 OTM

    Snatch – 85# (better, still having trouble catching with my butt back and not on my toes)
    Clean and Jerk – 155# (both parts of this movement felt awesome)

    Geoff, thanks a lot for all the cues in both classes – I’ll eventually feel comfortable sending my butt back and not being all toes with these lifts.

  39. Lil Tony

    Snatch: 145
    C&J: 175

  40. First day back from six-week restriction – SO. DAMN. GLAD!

    Did both movements with 60%:
    Snatch: 35#
    C&J: 2×35#, 5×55#

    Was so deliriously happy that I cashed out with a mile run. Not for time. Just because I could. :)

    Thanks, Geoff, for reminding me about the elbows. I was worried I would forget everything.

    Also, thanks Amie and Christian for the shout-out and encouragement. :)
