      Wooo Hooo to Heather on a huge PR, and to Frank on completing 100 burbees. No small task. I don’t know about the knee being his first badge of Cross Fit honour though….I thought that came in the form of an orange cast back in August 🙂

    100 Inverted Burpees! First time doing this WOD as Rx. A tough one for me, but I am so pleased that I could finish it.

    Amazingly, I was warm enough to take my vest off after 25…

    Tried T2B with and without band. I’m not too coordinated… I’ll stick with the toes 2 rings for now until I get better.

  14. Lora

    WU x 2

    Daily squat to 225#

    WOD as Rx
    100 inverted burpees
    Time = 12:32

    First time doing inverted burpees. They are easier than regular burpees (at least for me)…but my left butt cheek is sore 🙁

    Thanks for the cheers 5:45 crew! It helped a lot!

    WOD
    100 burpees (scaled from inverted)
    Time: 9:10

    OHS @ 70#’s seemed easier than 55-65. Weird…

    Great job on the burpees everyone. So now we’ve proven that if two 50+ year olds have the same birthday, eveyone can do the burpess no problem…see you in September right Gerry!?!

    Great to see you today Nadine… you look marvelous!!

    1. Heather S

      Also got 2 T2B with a band and 1 strict. Who knows, maybe kipping t2b by Friday. Love the skill of the week thing, I’m not always successful but it pushes me to try stuff!

    Strength – Back Squat X3
    165-185-205-225×2-225
    my 3rd of the first 225 was not low enough. Was on my toes quite a bit. Did last 225 without shoes. Better.

    WOD” as Rx’d

    12:10

    1st time doing this and did not want to do it as Rx’d but Kevin said I could. Happy I did.
    Really liked it!

    Great job 6:45 crew!

    WOD was much tougher than I expected.. On everything, sore calves, hamstrings, heels, wrist, ass!! Lol great job 6:45!

  18. Heidi

    WU x 2

    OHS x 5
    60-65-75-85-95

    WOD: 100 Inverted Burpees
    Time = 12:10

    First time for me on this work out….or any work out involving handstands. I had some fears about the handstands because I fell on my head when I last tried them. That was over a year ago & I’ve never had the courage to try them again. A big thanks to Patrick to helping me out this morning. Once I overcame my fear, they really weren’t that bad. I agree with Lora, in that they were easier for me that regular burpees.

  19. natacha

    WU x 2
    Push press 5RM: 80#

    WOD Rx: 9:56 (2:31 PR from 03/2011)… I agree that they are a little easier than regular burpees… and it helps not to stop… as Joanna says, you get less dizzy… fun… but sore neck muscles tonight!

    got 4 consecutive T2Bs… tricky!

  20. WU x 2

    Front Squat x 3
    60,70,80,90,100.
    Did a fair bit of shoulder and forearm stretching in addition to some wrist mobility before this one. I am not sure if it looked better when I racked the weight, but it sure did feel better. I should be able to start pushing some more challenging weight on front rack lifts very soon.

    WOD, scaled to regular burpees after what can only be described as a complete handstand fail during practice.

    100 burpees 9:38

    1. Jeff S

      Nice work on the burpees bender! however if I was in your class I woulda shamed you into doing it Rx, I changed all my classes for the rest of the week to make sure! See ya at 5:30! Lol

  21. Mario

    Mobility, Stretch Back, Wrist, Calves
    WU”A” x3

    Practice Double-Unders… horrible
    Single Skips – 5 mins

    Daily Squat to 287#
    Back Squat 5RM – 145 – 165 – 185 – 215 – 235#

    WOD Rx = 16:10 (Back was some worked up at the end. Needed to figure out the less tiring way of doing it much earlier, also had lots of no reps between 20-30)
