JC “the real deal” del Real 72 Comments Colleen (c4!) on September 25, 2013 at 9:11 pm Funny how “Grif” backwards is almost “frig.” This is gonna be interesting, real interesting. Reply jamie on September 25, 2013 at 9:20 pm Colleen in Knee-Lock spelt backward. Be careful Reply L.J. DiCarlo on September 25, 2013 at 9:46 pm Great photo, JC! Reply JC on September 26, 2013 at 5:54 pm Thank goodness someone took the pic with the bar over my head. The lunges got a bit spicy right after this was taken! Reply Andy M on September 26, 2013 at 7:20 am Griff: 12:48 (1:22PR) Reply Braatz on September 26, 2013 at 7:25 am Griff: 13:26 Big Clean Complex: 95 / 115 / 135 (PR) Reply Ho on September 26, 2013 at 7:51 am Nice dude. Reply Sarah W on September 26, 2013 at 10:00 am Well done Reply Ho on September 26, 2013 at 8:07 am 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. Reply Ho on September 26, 2013 at 11:14 am 2 rounds for time on the first thing above…not that it matters, but if you’re going to throw up a stinker time, might as well describe the WOD that bested you correctly. Reply Mike G on September 26, 2013 at 12:38 pm Nice job big guy! 😉 Reply Ho on September 26, 2013 at 12:50 pm Thanks, Eugene. Jen W on September 26, 2013 at 8:10 am Comp WOD: 16:21 (85#) 3 x clean complex: 95-105-115# 4×7 HBBS: 135# Reply Jen W on September 26, 2013 at 10:47 am 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. Reply Greg D on September 26, 2013 at 8:32 am Griff: 12:07 Reply Big Mike on September 26, 2013 at 8:34 am 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. Reply Sarah W on September 26, 2013 at 9:57 am I was going to question the functionality of the backwards run. Thanks for clarifying. Great post. Reply Sara C on September 26, 2013 at 9:39 am 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. Reply Neeb on September 26, 2013 at 9:55 am Yeah Juan Carlos!! Nice Pic! 4×7 HBBS 215 Rest in Peace SSgt Travis L. Griffin.

Reply Neeb on September 26, 2013 at 2:56 pm Ha! Must of been that 6th scoop of Assault that Giorgio gave me! Reply laura c on September 26, 2013 at 12:34 pm 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!!) Got 18 DU in a row (with singles in between) Damn chalk bucket got my 19th one (that is what happens when you travel as you jump) BIG PR!!! YEAH ME! Good times Ronda, Pete and Kathy! Reply JoeV on September 26, 2013 at 1:56 pm Sweet. We’re gonna have a DU-off! Reply laura c on September 26, 2013 at 12:35 pm ANYONE WANT A KITCHEN TABLE FOR FREE!!! I have a nice black distressed kitchen table for the taking. there is a crack in the middle but this can be easily fixed. It really is a nice quality table with 4 chairs.

Reply Mike G's leopard print thong on September 26, 2013 at 12:49 pm Nobody would have ever known Eugene's made up standards on September 26, 2013 at 12:54 pm The key to running backwards is running forwards with your clothes on backwards. Michelle on September 26, 2013 at 12:45 pm Griff: 13:16 rx 3 x cc. Up to 100-missed jerks 4 x 7 Hbbs: 135# Reply Lynne Mc on September 26, 2013 at 12:46 pm Grif 13:52 Time may be a few seconds out, my quads were burning so much they detracted from my brain.
