    We have 4 people doing the Games wod tonight at 5:15pm. I have 2 judges available now. Are there 2 more than can make it?

  10. Blake

    Games WOD 13.4
    AMRAP in 7 min of:
    — 3 Clean & Jerks @ 135# / 3 Toes-to-Bar
    — 6 Clean & Jerks / 6 Toes-to-Bar
    — 9 Clean & Jerks / 9 Toes-to-Bar
    — 12 Clean & Jerks / 12 Toes-to-Bar
    … and on and on

    Score: 50 reps.

    Wow, 50 was my goal exactly. Ironically if I had 30 extra seconds I think I could have got to 60 easily as for some reason my Toes-to-Bar felt very smooth and solid. 135# was heavy for me, but I managed to push from the clean right into the jerk without the bar resting on my shoulders most of the time…everything else was slow though πŸ™
    Overall happy to get through it!

    Thanks Corinna for the judging and the encouragement!

    Nice chatting with the evening class gang. I am appreciate very much that I can still work out while babying my lower back. I am feeling a little frustrated about it, but as long as you guys do not mind, I will try to be patient about it. My pride is taking a beating, but I am grateful for the fact I am still moving. Thanks Corinna for great coaching.

      it’s hard to slow down cause of injury, but as you say… the fact that you can keep moving is great not only for the moral but will also help you recover faster… as my mother in law says: “keep your chins up”!

  13. Melissa H

    WU x 1
    400m run

    Practice T2B…thanks Kevin for the help. Managed to get some! Yay!

    Practice Clean to 95# for tomorrow. Did it, but its heavy….

  14. natacha

    warm up

    practiced T2B… thanks to Kevin, I got a major breakthrough tonight… they actually are easy now… unbroken!! I still remember the first time I tried those a couple years ago… not a pretty sight…

    13.4: 48 reps
    glad I was able to get as many clean and jerks at that weight (5# off my 1rm for jerks)

    guess that’s what the game does… pushes you to do things you didn’t think you had in you… also helps to have someone pushing you all the way… thanks Kevin

    good luck to everyone tomorrow!
