Seriously though everyone check their belts! Weight belts that is! Mine is missing. It’s an atlas belt and says Neeb on it. Thx Reply Kate on December 11, 2013 at 8:36 am EUGENE STRIKES AGAIN!!! Reply Krystle on December 11, 2013 at 8:50 am There’s like 5 wlb in the lost & found Reply Eugene on December 11, 2013 at 9:02 am That’s funny, I have 5 in my gym bag too. And a few gymnastic wraps. And strangely enough, a few of Mike G’s shirts… Reply Neeb on December 11, 2013 at 10:31 am Haha! Xmas shopping again? Reply Brad on December 11, 2013 at 7:56 am Overhead Squat: 145 Snatch Balance: 115 Squat Snatch: 165 Weight felt comfortable, up 15# from Oct. thinking about PR’g next time. cheers all! Reply sarah w on December 11, 2013 at 8:57 am That’s a solid improvement, Brad. Also, thanks for helping me with my wrist wraps. You’d think they’d be self-explanatory. Reply Ho on December 11, 2013 at 8:58 am You’d think… Reply Brad on December 11, 2013 at 9:58 am no worries Sarah. Heck NO. I’ve had mine for 6 months and I still mess up putting them on. and that’s with oxygen to the brain. 😉 Reply Eugene on December 11, 2013 at 10:59 am 165 is solid! Reply Rich P on December 11, 2013 at 8:07 am OHS: 135/145/155 SB: 95/105/115(f) SS: 95/105(f)/95/105/115 Very up and down day, but all good in the end. Oh, and either me or Brad is bad at math because we did the same OHS… Reply Brad on December 11, 2013 at 8:27 am HA! I couldn’t remember if we had 45s and 10s or 5s. I always go with the lower weight on a guess. I’ll take the 155# if you feel good about that weight! Nice lifting with you today, way to stick with it. Reply Tricia D on December 11, 2013 at 10:44 am Did 45, 55, 65 on OHS, snatch and 45 felt good on snatch balance Fun working with Sarah and Lisa and thanks for your help, Rachel! Reply Ashley R on December 11, 2013 at 10:55 am OHS- 75 Balance- 65 Squat Snatch – 85# PR by 10# where was this when I was trying to Snatch 80# at the Masters???? Annie: 7:44 RX PR by about 2min. First time doing it RX without the single/double thing. Abmat sit-ups are pathetically slow. My twin can do almost 2 to my 1. What gives? Do 3 cesareans make a difference??? She has had none. Reply Jen W on December 11, 2013 at 1:05 pm HUGE PR on the squat snatch – nice work! Reply Sonia on December 11, 2013 at 9:09 pm Nice Ashley! So how do you move from double single to double double? Reply Big Mike on December 11, 2013 at 11:14 am I woke up but shoulder did not. Type of pain that results in “I should have known better injury” so glad I was smart enough to walk away. Did 21-15-9 of back squats (135#) and row for calories…7:30…was not pushing for time and even the bar pressure on my shoulder was a little much. Made my 9:30 meeting in NYC …win. Reply sarah w on December 11, 2013 at 12:51 pm pr’d your outfit Reply Big Mike on December 11, 2013 at 1:49 pm Not even my A-game suit Reply Patti Jeanne on December 11, 2013 at 11:26 am OHS – 55 Balance – 45 Squat Snatch 90# PR. 25 lb PR Power Snatch 95#PR by 10 lb Biggest part of the PR is the movement. I have never landed near the squat with anything over 55-65 lb. Its always a power snatch and then ride it down. Today, it was amazing. So its a 5 lb pr for just any type of weird attempt at a snatch and 25 lb pr for something that looks like a squat snatch!! Big thanks to the 8:30 coaches for improving my form – BEN, RACHEL and MICK. Thanks to my crew for cheering me on – Cary, Nicole and Laura Reply Max on December 11, 2013 at 11:29 am Awesome job Patti! That is so great! Reply MickD on December 11, 2013 at 12:24 pm Way to go Patti! Nice job! Reply Jen W on December 11, 2013 at 1:06 pm Daaamn but that’s a big PR! Nice! Reply Patrick on December 11, 2013 at 2:28 pm OHS-155 Balance – 115 Squat snatch – 135, got 145 but form was terrible. Coaching was very helpful for me today. I think we should make 10 person class with three coaches the norm. Reply Lori on December 11, 2013 at 2:31 pm OHS: 75# SB:55# SS:65# Annie: 6:24Rx pr Reply Kaitlyn on December 11, 2013 at 2:38 pm OHS – 145# (20# PR) Snatch balance – 105# Squat snatch – 125# An update on the accident that caused my 1.5h delay on Rt. 9…it was a car carrier that clipped an overpass so it looked way nastier in the photo than it actually was. No one was hurt! Reply Patti Jeanne on December 11, 2013 at 2:54 pm Nice!!! Reply Rasheed on December 11, 2013 at 2:52 pm Active recovery day Rowing 4x750m, 1 min res Reply JC on December 11, 2013 at 3:11 pm Been working on shoulder mobility for a month now, and things are starting to open up. Lots of dowel pass throughs and squat therapy. Have added in OHS for the first time recently. Did sets of 5 at 95# today, as well as Snatch Balance work. Staying light till this becomes a comfortable movement. Thx HB and Kevin for the tips. Pleased with the progress. Missed Annie yesterday so I did it today after class. Annie: 6:17 Rx (felt like the DU gods were smiling on me) Reply sarah w on December 11, 2013 at 3:20 pm awesome, JC. Especially considering DU’s were a recent acquisition. Reply KarenH on December 11, 2013 at 6:40 pm REALLY NICE JOB on the Du’s!!! Reply Jared S on December 11, 2013 at 3:11 pm OHS: 135/155/175 SB: 95/115/135 Squat: 115/135/155 Squat snatches need some work… Reply smw on December 11, 2013 at 3:50 pm Ohs: stayed@ 60# because my form is SO wrong. Snatch balance: 45#? I stoped adding weights. Squat snatch.: 45# but I finally got the form closer to correct. It is hard (for me) trying to stay positive on weightlifting wed. Reply Jonathan on December 11, 2013 at 4:05 pm OHS: 135/155/165 (10# PR) SB: 95/115/135 SS: 95/115/135 Annie: 10:43 Rx. DU’s were a disaster until the last 2 rounds.
