    Very pleased with my 5# front squat PR. Last time I had a 3 rep PR was June 10 of 2010! Almost 2 years ago! Learn to be patient with your lifts. The PRs will come if you stay the course.

    Slowest timed mile I have ever done. Last timed mile I ran, I did it in 6:20. I guess I have some work to do….reality check.

    Kevin, I would love to see the video from the start of the run hahaha! Hilarious.

  9. Im feeling nauseous, can you cancel my 3:15?
    theres still a spot in the 3:15 class, but I’ll cancel mine just in case someone wants it. I’ll most likely be going later on…

      Great job on the WOD darsey, had a good number on squats and you had an awesome ‘scaled’ run!! Lol.. Seriously, told you before you should think about running a few 5-10 K races.. You’ve got a great run stride! Looks effortless!

    Awesome night tonight. Thanks to however yelled at me on the home stretch.. i wanted to turn and see who it was but was pretty sure i’d face plant 🙂 Great push on the Row Gabe

    1. Amanda

      That was me! I was trying desperately to catch up/keep up to you and when I started to gain on you I figured you were slowing down and I knew you wouldn’t want me to pass you! haha You took right off after I yelled, great job! 🙂

  23. Heidi

    WU x 2

    Push Jerk x 5: 80-90-95-95-95
    Kept weight at 95# to work on form & keeping my hips/arms/bar in a straight line & not bending forward. I like the visual tool Kevin. Really helpful.

    WOD: Tabata Squats: 132
    1 Mile run = 8:55

    First 400m on the run was pretty wabbly & took a while to find my stride. I was 1 minute slower than running a mile on fresh legs. This seems to have been the standard for most.

  24. Gabriel


    Strength – Press X5

    WOD: “Funny Run”
    Tabata Squats Score: 131
    Run 1 mile (Scaled to 2000m Row) 7:51
    No PR on the Row, had 7:37 April 3rd, 2011.

    Then as I was going to get the foam roller, Kevin needed some guinea pigs for an experiment so me and Mario got to do 2:40 of all out Squats (Same amount of time as in the tabata) to see if we could match our Tabata score.
    I Got 102.
    Conclusion, Tabata won this time. Next time will try this fresh.


    Great job 6:45 crew!

    1. Kevin

      Thanks for trying that you two. I don’t think I would have done it myself…especially right after the workout.

    1 mile run right after squats
    Had a terrible first lap, but knee felt better on second.. Had a great race with Evan S for last 400m or so, you ran awesome Evan.. There is no quit in you, it was a fun cat and mouse game to see who would crack, came down to a 100m flat out sprint and fittingly we tied.. I came away very impressed, great perseverance.. Great night at CFM, great job 6:30 class!!
