Move over Two Chains.


  1. Oh no. I’m so torn. This workout is called Optimus Prime so I have to do it. But wall balls can go f themselves. Goddammit, what do I do.

  2. Lára Vukson

    Oh wallballs. I love and hate you at the same time.

    AMRAP 7:
    Wall Balls (20, 14#)
    EMOM 5 Deadlifts (225, 155#)

    54. (10# Wall Ball. 125# to start, 3 rounds then down to 105#).

    Good to see you Megan! Happy Friday all.

    • Great job! I love that you got up, loved/hated/tossed balls around, posted and got home before me and the kids woke up.

  3. OP: 120 Rx

    3×30 BJs at 24″…all unbroken (although had to reset set 2 because I missed at 12…last set of 30 in 42 seconds)

    Anyone else yearning for Big Mike’s next chapter? I mean, I’m not of course, buuuuut, maybe others.

  4. Optimum Prime: 85 Rx

    2×30 + 1×29 box jumps (24″). Got no-repped by Dave “EC” Crabbe on one jump in the 3rd set.

  5. Optimus Prime: 116 Rx

    3×30 Box Jumps @ 24″. Best set 49 secs.

  6. Optimus prime: 52 (105#, 12# btw 9-10ft target)

    Fun class and warm up :). Happy Friday.

  7. Optimus Prime: 121 Rx
    Dave on one side and Ho on the other….just tried to hold on and not get schooled. Big first set and then just stay consistent in rounds 2-6. Finish round 6 of deads quickly and use all the time on the last round. Still coughing 2 hours later.

    • redemption

    • I heard that Fran cough! Nice job today. I think you owe the wallballs another chapter since you dominated them so thoroughly today… just sayin’

      • No, too busy….oh, wtf

        50 Shades: Redemption
        Chapter 3
        I went to bed last knowing that she’d be there in the morning….waiting, anticipating my hands, the tension, the raw power.
        When I walked in I saw her. She was sitting in a new place, out of the way, trying to be untouchable, top shelf. But nothing is untouchable for me. I hated that I had to climb up to get her but I took her aggressively and let her fall to the ground, just so she knew who was in charge.
        The foreplay got complicated. SMW was there, she wanted to play and had brought her own friend….”gotta get me some” she said. I set her aside and gave her what she needed even though her friend was a little light. It takes more than two to take me down.
        Now it was our time. I had brought some other tools to the party today. Things that I could manipulate…heavy things, dirty things (but not too dirty because they had a protective bio shield). There were others around me…a Ginger…soulless, and a Marine. Were they there to school me or get schooled.
        I took her in my grasp and for a solid minute I went unbroken, deep, thrusting, extending my reach, catching her as she returned from my thrust only to repeat. It seemed like an hour but it was only a minute. Then I left her, just for a moment, just to bring her to the edge. I was back, this time just trying to stay steady and each time I would bring her to the point of no return and take one step back.
        Then it was over. Time to fight to the end. It was glorious as I fell to the ground. The Marine, who had been watching fell beside me. “Hoo Raaah” he said. The Ginger, screamed at a baby….like I said-soulless.
        I could have put her back but I left her there. Today she was mine, my monument, my story, my victory.

    • Awesome score Big Mike….clearly a wheelhouse!

    • great job! i don’t know what i like reading more, your great score or the wallball porn below!

  8. Optimus Prime: 100 Rx
    3×30 Box Jumps @ 24″. 3rd set was ugly but got it done

  9. OP: 60 Rx plus several bleacher beach ball no reps.

  10. Michelene

    Optimus Prime: 53 (105 DL & 12 WB) I had a window spot and took a ball slam to the face on my first one. At least when you are under the window there is no way to cut corners on the standards, the ball will quickly let you know…

    • lmao – great job and thanks for taking the window – given the standards I was maintaining I would have two black eyes :). Have a good weekend.

    • I’m familiar with the window no-repping me.

  11. OP: after a fun med ball warm up I was crushed by this wod. I decided to do rx weight but I was defeated. After 2 rounds I went down in dead lift weight. That took a minute and I lost that round. My deads still took way too long and left me little time for wall balls. Oh well, I still had fun with the 5:30 am and all their trash talk. And my posterior chain still got worked

  12. Optimus Prime: 90

  13. OP: 72 205# 9′ WB
    Got 30 on the first round. Averaged 7 per round on the rest.

  14. Optimus Prime: 65 (135# DL) A few no-reps for height on the WBs . . . and too many times where I let it drop. Yuck.

    Box jump fun: 3 x 30 unbroken
    2 x 10 back squats: 135#, 145#

      • soooo. i’m looking to move closer to CFNE in april… is your tree house for rent, is heat and hot water included? : P

  22. OP: 84 125# (10# WB)

    Optimus Prime: 59 (105#, 10# WB). Maybe a few less, as I probably should have no-repped a few of those! Fun class today. Also – amazing treehouse! Hope Patrick is brushing up on his carpentry skills so we can get going on one…
