Happy Birthday Heather. I love you!
Happy Birthday HB, hope you have a great one
Happy Birthday Heather!
Heather!!! I love you like a sister! Happy Birthday to you babe!!
Happy Bday, Heather!
Great picture, guys, and love the one on the desk too. Such a happy family!!!! Happy birthday!!!!
Happy Birthday Heather! You have such a gorgeous family. I hope you have an amazing day!
Happy Monday everyone! It was so great to be back at the mayhem this am and see everyone. Great job to everyone too on a rough workout.
Metal head: 16:12 with 35# and 25 double unders per round with 50 singles also bc I still have to do at least two singles between each in order to get the double. Ugh two huge goat moves today but happy to have it done. Better lay off the double unders for the rest of the week though bc it legit looks like Christian Grey got ahold of me and I’m pretty sure neither Kevin nor our wedding guests would appreciate it!
Have a great day everyone!
Happy Birthday Heather
Metalhead: I have no idea on time. somewhere between 11:30 and 15:10ish… Really wasn’t going for time. I was more focused on form of the snatch. O and I suck at double under. (75#, DU/SU)
Metalhead: 11:42 (95#)
After worked up to 1RM squat snatch 110# (PR)
nice work Andy.
– Mix or DU’s and SU’s
– Sub’d front squats for the SC’s
115, 125, 125, 135, 135
Last round – frustrated that I dropped the bar and completely forgot to look at clock.
Metalhead: 11:43 (95# and 50 unbroken singles and as many DU attempts as I could get in 90 seconds)
Could not even hold the bar overhead in warm ups so I went light on the snatch weight. At GO, I got the first set without letting go of the bar. Will go heavier. I just don’t warm up well.
Metalhead: 15:06 Rx. DUs felt pretty good today; it was the first time I stopped because of fatigue and not because I messed up.
Oh. Clean Complex (Comp WOD): 125#
Metalhead: 14:38 Rx
Pause squat clean & jerk: 155/175/175
Thanks to the Rockett’s for a fun party. Good to see so many of you with clothes on. Well, you know what I mean.
Rx, can’t get that much wt. up myself, nice job!
Metalhead: 15:?? (95# & 25du’s) I mostly got knocked around today.
Metalhead: 14.52 Rx…eff you squat snatches.
Clean & Jerk complex: 195, 205, 215

Metalhead: 17:58 at (60# and 25 du attempts)
(Kate S., maybe you could let a few others post underneath this before you post your time)
Happy Birthday Heather!!!!!
Metalhead: 14:57 (95#)
You know that you are reaching full depth on your squats when your shorts explode on the round of 6.
Or yo booty gettin big…
Gotta go for the loose fit on any squat day.
Metalhead: 11:57 RX
Metalhead: 15:48 with 35# and 20 DUs per round.
I *think* I got my first two real consecutive DUs this morning. Isn’t it weird that I have no idea? I definitely was able to eliminate one of the singles in between my doubles. Did some double-single-doubles, so that was progress. Snatch felt meh (that’s what she said.)
Happy birthday HB!
Metalhead: 14:04 (40# & 25 DU attempts) I’m still sore from Saturday. I thought this would work out the kinks… nope.
Hey HB……………HB!! Turning 25?
3×5 Front Squats 225
Great Job 6:30am!!
Metalhead: 10:13 (95#)
Happy B-Day Heather!!!
Happy Birthday HB!
“Metalhead” – 10:09 Rx’d
Happy Bday HB!
Metalhead – 23:03 Rx (total meltdown)
I’m convinced the meltdowns are what makes us stronger…a necessary evil to being a badass.
You needed to take a little longer break on attemps, way to gut it out.
Happy Birthday, Heather!
Metalhead: 10:45. Subbed 95# back squats for snatches, and did 100 singles each round.
shoulder and foot slowly getting better……
HBD to the one and only HB!
I thought you’d forgotten the “10’s column” when I first saw that. Thanks for the demo. “Just like you’re touching the person behind you…” Not bad for 5:30 am, Kate.
Kate – You are amazing. Every time I see your posts I’m amazed at what you can do. It seems like you are getting stronger and faster every week. It’s fun to watch!
She is…and it is.
Big Birthday wishes Heather!!!
Metalhead on the patio: 55# and 30 D.U. (oops! read the board too quickly!)
Great meeting you Saturday!
You too! Fun time!
did you 2 dance and I missed it?
Metalhead – 6:59 Rx
C&J Comples – 185-195-205
… the best “batches of squat snatches” have ever felt …
Happy Birthday Heather.
Wow, nice time!
Happy Birthday, beautiful Heather B!!!
Meathead: 15:02 75#
C&J w pause: 125#
Cleans felt so good I tried to pr my sc & got 140#!
I got 135# twice last oct but have been stuck at 125 since. Pumped!
Ha,ha, ha….Meathead!!! I know it was a mistake, but a really funny one!
Congrats on that phat PR! Way to go!!!
Metalhead: 13:39 55# 25 DU’s
Happy Birthday Heather! Have a beautiful day! Miss you guys at CFNE :)!!!
HBx2!!!(Happy Birthday, Heather B!!!!)
Metalhead, “Easy on the Old Knees” Version: 12:00 with 35# hang power snatches and 250m rows in between rounds. Thanks to Harry for the excellent mod suggestions. Still got a great workout but no squatting or jumping required today.
Happy birthday Heather!
Metalhead: 8:10 (65# squat cleans, 100 singles)
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
metal head: 14:05 (60#, 25 DUs)
Metal head: 11:38 rx
Happy awesome Birthday wishes to the Queen of the Naughty Nooners!
Metal head: 11:08 65# stoked to get 36 unbroken DUs on one round. Love this workout for forcing perfect snatch form.
SC, 3 sec. bottom pause, split jerk 3×115#. Not my best work.
Happy Birthday Heather!!! Hope you have the best day!
Metalhead: 12:30 55# front squats off the rack- easing my way back- 25 DU … Mostly attempts but I was able to get a few :)….. New rope left some nasty rope burns!!!
Great to meet you Saturday! Keep killin’ it.
you are welcome:)!
Metal head: 13:08 35# 25du
Did 20/8/6/4/2 rep scheme. Don’t ask
Went super duper light per Ben’s “order” to us.. Was I the only one who listened? So snatches were a breeze…. The DU a shit show. BUT, the most I’ve ever done in. Wod. Amazing how much harder they are to do in a wod then just practicing them:)!
HB to HB:)! Xo
Hey Hey Happy Birthday Heather!
Metalhead: 17:29 95#
Metal head: 15:17 (55#), 25 DU per round
Clean complex-115#-125#-135# (Failed 145 on the jerk twice)
You were rocking those DU’s. And the snatches too. Great work!
Happy BERF-DAY, HB!! I hope Maya, Jonah and Bode cook a nice meal for their Mommy
Happy happy happy HB!!!
Pre WOD lifting with LJ
5 x 5 Strict Press (worked to 130#)
3 x 5 DL (300#)
Max shoulder to overhead in a min @ 95# – 43 reps
Metalhead-ish (subbed hang squat cleans 115#): 14:05
Did all the DUs, but had SU in between (so, 250 of each) which is a lot of wasted effort.
After the WOD I got some inspiration from EC, Rachel and HB to lose the SU’s and just see if I could string a few DU’s together. Mind you I had NEVER strung more than 2 together…ever!
I got 2, then 5, then 12, then 30, then 40 in a row. I decided to try max DUs in a min. I got 82 in 1 min, with 60 of them consecutive!! Holy DUs Batman!
Thx EC, Rachel and HB for the encouragement….
Good God, dude. I think that’s progress. Not sure, but I think so.
Are you kidding? That is amazing, JC. 2 to 40?? 82 in a minute? From goat to wheelhouse.
JC = dedication = success
way to stick with that movement, congrats!
WOW!!!! We need to talk and you can inspire me:)!!!
Way to go!
Now that’s impressive!! Can’t say I’m a tad jealous as I’ve been stuck in that su-du dance forever. Congrats.
Woohoo! Awesome JC!!
WOW!!!! Congrats JC!
JC this is beyond AMAZING!
Holy s**t! Awesome JC, you didn’t know you had them in you.
Yes! Well done.
JC, congrats. So awesome!
Happy Birthday Heather! Hope it’s a great one!
THANKS Rocketts for the party on Sat. Fun time!
