Bench Press x 5
DU’s practice (goal is to get to 100)
Worked up to a 45″ box jump. Not a weakness, but really wanted to find out my max box jump.
Wow, nice box jump.
Wow! That is a huge box jump!
Elba and I had very much fun planning our lives as deperate houswifes of Moncton if Vince and Trent killed themselves on those box jumps. Quite impressive, I was kinda scared to look.. lol!
You two were HILARIOUS this morning…and you really looked the part! Watch your backs, boys! LOL!
Nice job man! WOW!
Nice work Vincent! Sweet box jump!
Goob Job Vincent!!! I am glad you guys did not hurt yourselves, Chantal and I were so scared, thats all we talked about it, right Chantal?? !!! No, really Amazing job!!!

Time 1:31:1. Pr of .3 but still have some work to get under 1:30. Thanks for the cheering 7am’ers.
So close! Man you’ll be there pretty soon Darsey! Nice job!
Thanks Blake. Its a tough goal I have. I was wrecked afterwards. I will prob try again next week.
Congrats on your row PR Darsey! You are VERY close to sub 1:30. Next time, try it before a workout, when you’re still fresh. It might make a difference
Well bench press is nice, after the beating our legs took yesterday. Any one else feeling it?

Good work on the bench!
Pretty impressive weight Miss Chantal! I knew you were going to go heavy, and you disappoint.
Ahh look who’s talking!
Thanks for correcting my typo Amanda!!!!!!! Sheesh! Changes the ENTIRE meaning of that sentence! *blush*
Chantal you NEVER disappoint!
Congrats, you are so strong!!!
Bench Press x 5
85-95-115-135-150-170-175-180-185(PR for reps and weight)
Nice sharing the bar with you Brian.
Tried wall climbs/shoulder touch thingies but still couldn’t do them, Chantal suggested to try the pike position. Then she suggested holding my legs against the wall. BINGO I could do them and know exactly why I’m always falling. Thanks Chantal.
Saw Vincent doing the Box Jumps so I “Hopped” on board. Worked up to 47″
Haha, “hopped”. I see what you did there.
Nice box jump Trent! Pretty sweet bench too!
Heavy Bench man! Nice work!
Congrats on your bench press PR, Trent! You made it look easy! And crazy box jumps, too!
WU x 1
Bench: 5 X 75-85-95-100-105-110-120-130(PR for Reps)
Had some time and weight was going up well so decided to go for 1s
BW for 5 and 10# PR for 1s How excited am I?? (Thanks for pushing me Blake! It helped in the confidence department! )
Thanks Blake and Patrick for the spots! and I’m glad I made Maria laugh with my faces…
You did awesome man! Really great work!
Excellent job, Eric! That’s more than body weight, isn’t it? Impressive!
Really fun lunch class today, just 3 of us! And I love bench press day!
I just realized I missed a set – I was supposed to do 95×3 and didn’t! It’s just as well I guess, my arms & chest are toast right now!
Last time we did 3′s for bench (Nov 2011) I got to 95×1 so it’s a small improvement, and I’ll take it!
Very strong, triple digits!
PR’s at any weight are always exciting. 5# is a big jump on this lift.
YAY Amanda!!! Congrats on your PR Triple digits? Awesome!!
Thanks ladies. And I made a mistake in my post: was supposed to do 95×5, not x3.
WU X 2
Bench Press X 5
135-145-155-165-170-175-180-185(only X 2)

Mob / WU x 2
Bench Press (8 sets)
No PRs, but a nice ‘change-of-pace’ workout. Thanks Kevin & Patrick for helping with the technique behind everything…much appreciated!
Today is my 1 year CrossFit Anniversary. I started to write a little blurb of thanks but ended up getting all “wordy” so I posted it as a blog instead. Thanks again to Kevin, Jo and all the coaches for all your hardwork to make us better CrossFitters and better people alll-around.
Here’s my 2 cents…
Shout out for 1yr!! Big day for you and I. Today was my 200th class.
Nice! Congratulations sir!
Congrats on your 1st anniversary!!
Congrats!!! The progress in you in the last year is beyond amazing!!!!
Great comments from a “non blogger”, Blake. Your love of CrossFit is obvious by your enthusiasm at the gym. Congrats on year 1.
Happy 1 year Anniversary! Congrats on a fantastic year. It is always a pleasure to have you around the gym. Your positive attitude and sharp wit are very welcome additions to our little community.
Loved what you wrote on your “non-blog”. I have to admit, it got me a little choked up. Thanks for sharing.
Congrats Blake! What a difference a year makes eh? Heres to many more!
you are so sweet Blake… glad your Mom “kicked” you in the but… always a pleasure to have you around

wu x 2
practice double unders: still at 5
practice muscle ups: finally got 2 in a row and almost 3. Very happy about this.
Bench Day: 8 sets of 5
messed up my breathing on the last set and exhaled on the way down. Tried again but didn’t rest. No go.
Bench is fun but it left me wanting for the feeling of a good soul crushing WOD. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
careful what you wish for!!!
Yeah, I know right.
I do love a good beating though. CFM style.
Hush with those wishes…the walls have ears, or is it eyes….whatever.
Bench Press x5
First time doing bench press in a WOD. I like them.
Nice work Kimmy!
WU x 1.5 (yakking with Marie-No and the time got away from me)
WOD Bench Press Day!
8 sets of 5 reps
5# PR! My previous 3RM was 125#
Great sharing a bar with you Marcel and Joey
*note to self – must do the movement more quickly (especially lowering the weight)
Great work 6:30 crew!
nice numbers Lora… and it was a treat to have you as coach this morning… hope it wasn’t too rough on you those ungodly hours!!
Bench Press x 5
45-55-65-75-85-95(PR for reps)-(100 x 3 & PR)-(100 x 2)-(95X5)
I love bench press day.
Super happy with this. Last May/12 I only managed 95X 2, and November/11 failed at 95#. I think doing this WOD in the evening as opposed to 6 a.m. may have been the key factor. I’ll have to test this theory next time.
Great sharing the bar with Marie & Jason. (Even though they had to keep taking weight off when it was my turn) Marie, you made every lift look so easy. So strong!
sweet pr Heidi!
Congrats on reaching triple digits, Heidi! That’s a big milestone
It was a pleasure sharing the bench and spotting you on this great PR Heidi! You are a tank!

Thanks Laura and Marcel for the motivation!!
