    Finish with a special treat.

    The natural strength gain by doing crossfit is mind boggling. In Nov I finished with 180lbs only twice, now finishing off with almost the same weight more times and after a lot more reps.

    Kevin’s special… Very delightful!

    PR For reps… last time in november I failed the 3rd rep @ 115.

    Did regular strength instead of bench today because my shoulder doesn’t like to do movements that require a push away action (like pushups, bench press ect).

    Clean & Jerk x5
    70 80 95 105 115 125×2

    In Dec ’10, we did sets of 3’s, and I got to 85×3 and then did 95×1… I think today must be an improvement, but hard to tell.

  14. Tracy S

    2 rounds of special warm-up… liked the change.

    Bench Press: (X7) … 45 – 50 – 60 – 70 – 75 (x4) – 75 (x7)
    2nd set of 75 was far better once Kevin explained the proper breathing. Might have been able to do more weight, but was happy to accomplish that for today.

    Cashout (Treat?): Tabata Burpees = 35

  16. Bench Press – 7RM

    Bench Press x 7:
    25-45-55-85-75-85
    Then did 90 X 5

    Happy with this. In November, I got zero reps @ 95#

    Tabata Push Ups = 58
    I should have known better that to participate in this, when I had the choice not to. However, after seeing some of you being treated to burpees, I’ll take the push ups.

    My arms hurt ๐Ÿ™

    Don’t remember the last time I did barbell bench?? Good base I guess… Thanks for sharing the bar/bench with me Maria!!

    Good work lunchtime class!!
    Sad to report I fully intended to do either pushup or squat tabata at home but lost motivation by the time I got home and all the kids actities done ๐Ÿ™ tomorrow that much harder!!
