Back Squat: 225# (20# PR)
Double PR!!! Happy Wednesday!!! Yippeee
Great PRs, Andy. Fun lifting with you this morning.
Nothing like a snatch PR during a complex…means you’ve got tons in the tank big guy! Congrats!
Snatch – 4, 45, 50, 55, 60, 55, 55
Back squat – 175, PR. Failed at 180, that was mental. and totally frustrating.
Wow, great job!
Snatch: 85-145 (squat coming along slooooowly, but it’s coming)
Squat: 345 (30# PR), failed 365…booty
Linked bar muscle ups for first time.
15 ring muscle ups. No linking yet…booty.
345# is no joke. That’s awesome.
the best rest day i have ever seen. great to watch you and Cotter putting up the big weight.
What’s the capital of Djibouti?
Well if you is a crook than you takin’ it, Da Booty
and if you got money you shakin’ it, Da Booty
Next question, please…
That’s a lot of muscle ups!
Nice work on the muscle ups. From 1 to 15 in a week!
1RM BS: 235 (10# PR)
1RM Back Squat 245
worked on shoulder mobility between snatches, and stayed light. lots of opportunity here.
thank you Harry for the mobility tip.
I do find it comical that there are even competing pictures of Big Mike and Ho… nothing like fueling the fire.
Miss you all. I hope to be back in September. I went all in on my kids this summer, but I am working to get some me time back. Fortunately we make our football team do a lot of pushups and the coaches will usually join in…
Miss ya bud. Can’t wait to see how much you’ve grown over the summer. I’m expecting to see you over 7 feet tall.
My kids do all the growing these days. I think my oldest is taller than you now… and has better hair than both real and fake Doug Bell.
You and I both will be back in September!
Snatch complex: 85 – 135F
Back squat: 255, 265F
All the praise for my snatch yesterday must’ve gone to its head. Sloppy today.
I feel compelled to point out that 255 is a PR for you! You PR machine, you.

Thanks for letting me join the 8:30 team this morning! Great class today and great instruction. I think I speak for all of us when I say our snatches are better off for it.

Really good article on CrossFit, the brand, the history and Glassman in Inc magazine. Check it. http://www.inc.com/magazine/201307/burt-helm/crossfit-empire.html

got a great pump on – we need mirrors at the gym.
10 Sit Ups
50 Air Squats before 1st round and after last round
1.5 mile bike ride to and from the beach and mile run on the beach (running in sand is hard gawd)
Nice work, but You don’t get attendance credit for this
Snatch Complex: 125#
1 rep back squat: 275# (10#PR)
Hell Yeah, Ken!!
Snatch complex: 85#
1RM back squat: 230#. Felt sooooo much better than last time.
Snatch complex to 70#
Back squat 160# (35# PR)
HUGE PR!!!!! You know what I’m gonna say… It’s all those wall balls.
Too bad all the wall balls haven’t made me better at…oh…wall balls!
not true! your forehead doesn’t have the same imprint as mine!
Darn! Nice PR!
In the interest of full disclosure I should mention I hadn’t done a 1RM back squat since Jan when I was just starting out…but def progress.
35# is a ginormous squat PR regardless!!
Snatch complex: worked up to 95. God I love snatches
Back squats, on the other hand, were dicey. Hit 175# which is def not a PR. Not a good back squat night for me. Oh well.
