  1. Colleen (c4!)

    Funny how “Grif” backwards is almost “frig.” This is gonna be interesting, real interesting.

  2. Colleen in Knee-Lock spelt backward. Be careful

  3. L.J. DiCarlo

    Great photo, JC!

    • Thank goodness someone took the pic with the bar over my head. The lunges got a bit spicy right after this was taken!

  4. Griff: 12:48 (1:22PR)

  5. Griff: 13:26

    Big Clean Complex: 95 / 115 / 135 (PR)

  6. CompWOD open stuff:

    1) 12 OHS @ 135, 12 burpees, 9 power snatch @ 135, 9 burpee box jumps @ 20″, 6 squat snatches @ 135, 6 burpee C2B…

    30:35 Rx (completely blew the stimulus but I need to attack a heavier snatch bar. Time for progress).

    2) 4×7 high bar back squat @ 235.

    then, Griff: 15:58…legs were toast so didn’t push here.

  7. Comp WOD: 16:21 (85#)

    3 x clean complex: 95-105-115#

    4×7 HBBS: 135#

    • Oh, C2Bs were actually regular pull ups.

      The Comp WOD was painfully difficult.

      Clean complex went up to and tied my PR weight for the complex.

      By the time I got to the back squats I was tiiiiired.

  8. Griff: 12:07

  9. Griff: 13:41, that was gruff. Will be using elevator today, provided I can actually stand up. You would think I had not used my quads or hamstrings in the last month. But, now I know that functionally I can survive a zombie apocalypse while running uphill, backwards, and shooting.
    Felt sorry for the poor guy driving to work on Tech Circle…people running at him, people running away from him, people running at him away from him and people running away from him at him. Bet he went for the double shot of espresso.

    • I was going to question the functionality of the backwards run. Thanks for clarifying.
      Great post.

  10. OMG, I’m on the website! Mind=blown.

    Nursing a bum knee that I can’t mess around with because of my job so you might not see me for a bit (don’t all cry at once). But I need to give a shout out to the fabulous Dr. Rockett who is basically the only doctor in history to go out of his way to find out my phone number (thanks to CFNE “concierge extraordinaire” Ali) and call me personally to fit me in for a same-day appointment. Everyone who has been to him already knows he rocks, but to those that have not…don’t mess around, if something hurts, go right to the Rockett Man.

  11. Yeah Juan Carlos!! Nice Pic!

    4×7 HBBS 215

  21. OPEN COMP WOD: 12:26 55# – kept it light for the squat snatch and was glad I did b/c I got the proper stimulus – which is the goal so I did not let my ego get in the way (which is not very big at CFNE!!)
