Thank you to everyone who came out last Friday night! Now get PUMPED for the grand finale of Friday Night Lights!


  1. Ali kicks ass!

  2. Open WOD 14.4: 181 (12:43)

    It’s interesting how one extra rep can feel so good.

  3. Way to go Braatz!

  4. 14.4: 180 – time break time 13:37

    18 seconds faster than Friday. Psyched about this.

  5. Big Mike

    14.4.2: 180 (12:52) Rx
    38 second improvement from 14.4.1
    Stuck to the game plan on wall balls (4×10) and used the 35# bar which allowed me to keep the hook grip all the way through.
    Thats a lot of heavy breathing for 109 place points….

    • Big time improvement! Way to go Mike!

    • I’m disappointed… you used the term heavy breathing and didn’t break into the next chapter of one of your stories…

      Congrats to everyone. Killing it…

  6. Michelle

    14.4. 180. 13:55, rx just under the buzzer!
    8 rep pr. Thanks for the encouragement in the house!
    Huge thank you to Rachel and Ben!

  7. Bane – 7:33 Rx.

  8. Colleen (OC)

    14.4: 150 (3 rep PR) Thanks Heather V for yelling at me to pick up the ball! My goal was to make it through the wall balls and I did it.

    It’s so disheartening when you’re on calorie 38 and Ho is next to you, getting off the rower…

  9. Tricia D

    Bane – 7:23 (85#)

  10. Annie: 8:45

    Disney is great for the kids but wish I could’ve done 14.3 again. Travel wods = double under work.

    Thanks for keeping me moving Eric B!

    Any CPA’s out there? Looking to establish residence in NH. If you can help, email Thx

  17. Stephan

    10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 — 7:41

    Deads 315#
    Hand Release Push ups (shoulder didn’t want burpees)

    Kind of annoyed I forgot to grab the weighted vest before we started… very un-Bane of me.

    “Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it…”

    • Andrew E

      When your lumbar is ashes, and you no longer have feeling in your shoulders…then you have my permission to die.

  22. Michelene

  23. Sarah W

  28. Laura c

    14.4: 150 RX 20 rep PR BABY!

    I went 40 seconds slower on the row and 20 reps better! Walked away defeated on Friday. Was not gonna do it again bc it sucked so bad and I felt miserable. Decided to go about it again with a different strategy and it worked!


    5 rounds strict Cindy… I think
    That’s 101 rtd

  29. 14.4 150 Rx.

  30. 14.4 182 (2 rep PR) I’m glad I made up with the rings on Friday, they were much nicer to me today.

  31. Jonathan

    14.4 (re-do): 172…same as Friday:(

    • Laura c

      “That was worth nothing”…. Said while rolling on the floor on a heap… Best nooner moment. You should have done 20 rounds of cindy!!

      • Jonathan

        Agreed! Is it wrong that I am still angry?

        • laura c

          HA! I understand but at least you know that you are consistent and NO doubt in your mind that you can not do one rep better – says me who is saying “I should have gone faster adn gotten on the bar….”

  40. Krystle

    14.4 redo 157 RX … 5 rep PR. Would really like to have been able to make it to muscle ups. Is it sick that I want to do this again?

  41. Nicole D

    14.4: 162 Rx (2 rep PR – I’ll take it!)

  42. 14.4 redo: 167, 1 rep PR

    Everything tonight felt better and faster – even did a couple touch and go cleans because they felt so good. So not sure why there wasn’t more improvement. Oh well, on to the next one.

  43. Rachel E

    Bane: 7:28 Rx (all unbroken per Coach Max’s orders but still now wondering if I missed a round? Pretty sure I didn’t. But this is my disclaimer anyway.)

    also, besides the Open workouts, 99% sure this was my FIRST rx workout :)

  48. Nick C.

    Open 14.4 – 162

    TTB totally killed me, but with a sub-3 minute mark on the row and solid moves in the other parts, I’m feeling pretty good. Awesome job by the whole 6:30 tonight.
