Reply Geoff L on August 15, 2013 at 9:09 pm #humble, awesome job Kev! Reply Mike B on August 16, 2013 at 3:40 pm For a guy I don’t personally know, Montoya is one of my favorite CrossFitters. After watching him compete at the Competitors Comp, and not because he won it. Its the way he conducts himself. Quiet calm professional. He had a plan and executed it, and did it with class. And have heard he’s the nicest guy. CFNE is truly blessed with humble, true professional Coaches. Thanks Geoff for all your advice and Ben and the rest of the CFNE crew for programing and setting the standard. Keep up the great work!

Just please keep it creeping towards HOT HOT PINK, ok?? Reply dennis on August 15, 2013 at 9:20 pm Wow – awesome lifts Kevin! Reply Rachel D on August 15, 2013 at 9:56 pm WOW Kevin… Reply Dave C. on August 16, 2013 at 7:12 am Purple Drank: 13:21 Rx Spent most of my time on the ring dips and as hard as i tried i couldn’t catch the Ho. Nice job bud. Reply Chad M on August 16, 2013 at 7:32 am Purple Drank. 12.50 @275# Always a nice surprise when your handle detaches from your DU rope with 13 reps left in a WOD. I wouldn’t recommend trying to continue with holding on to the rope. Reply Chad M on August 16, 2013 at 8:32 am Kev, I don’t know why I am still blown away by what you do but I absolutely am. What is that almost 100# over your BW?! Oh, and you have to control your emotions, they almost get away from you there after the snatch. Reply Ashley R on August 16, 2013 at 7:32 am Very cool video Kevin. Amazing how the bar barely moved on the rack lift. You just got under it immediately. Judging by that picture above..do NOT mess with Sarah!!! Reply Ho on August 16, 2013 at 7:33 am PD: 12:07 Rx…stared at Dave the whole time.

Reply rich t on August 16, 2013 at 9:20 am Kevin – i am going to the authorities. we have seen your DU, your BJ and now this video. only explanation is that you have an anti-gravity machine, probably unlicensed.

Harry pushed me to do 30 DU (I do single doubles still) per round….. Glad he did. So, while I finished 5 min after everyone I was still happy with my progress:)! Could have gone up on DL… Next time.

Got in a 1 mile warm up run this am, then did Surfer on Acid at the playground (glad it was early enough that no one thought I was a creep) in 12:01. That was rough for some reason and need to work on my speed with the short sprint runs for sure! Then a 1 mile cool down run back home. I hope everyone had a great weekend and I look forward to getting back to CFNE next week. Reply michelle on August 16, 2013 at 12:16 pm Stopped wod – body was complaining.

Let’s make it happen. Double burgers, double jello shots, double stuff oreos??? Yeah- it will be epic. Reply Colleen (OC) on August 16, 2013 at 1:22 pm This was yesterday’s WOD- I was on the Cape yesterday (for work, which is way less fun) so I didn’t have time to post: 10 RFT: 5 HSPUs (one abmat and a slightly folded towel!) 10 walking lunges (with my sad little 5# weights) 10:51. (PR by 1:15, sweet!) 2 minute drill: 25. When you take 2 weeks off, this is what happens. You regress. Need to work on these EVERY. DARN. DAY. I’M COMING BACK SEPTEMBER 3RD!!!!

Eugene-thanks for keeping an eye on the little guy today. Not that anyone noticed or anything. Reply Ho on August 16, 2013 at 2:02 pm What’s a “band”? I see you’ve been using one a lot this week and since I don’t use one of those “band” things I thought I’d check in. Is that like scaling up? God, every time I think I’m getting close to your physical dominance, you one up me. It’s so frustrating. That’s it…next week, I’m “banding” all over the place. I’ll use two bands. You’ll see!! Reply Big Mike on August 16, 2013 at 2:18 pm Reply Max on August 16, 2013 at 5:50 pm CYBER BULLY! Reply Curt V. on August 16, 2013 at 2:03 pm Purple Drank 12:53 245# 12 pushups per round Good to be back to the noon craziness. Reply KJ on August 16, 2013 at 2:03 pm Purple Drank: 10:38 (315#/ 6 dips per round). Slow on the dips, but was able to do them without a band for a change. The DLs and DUs went pretty well – straight sets on the DLs except for last round. Got the last 40 DUs unbroken. A good day! Reply Big Mike on August 16, 2013 at 2:20 pm KJ…I watched your dips–you needed about 28 more seconds to do the other 18….next time!

Deads came pretty easy, ring dips were pretty much singles from the get go, and my best set of DUs came in round 4, go figure. Awesome WOD!! Fun as always – great class, Kev! Ben the video on ring dips in Comp Wod really helped me… As much as anything could possibly help me with rig dips!
