    Ha-ha, I aint no fool!

    Not only was 14.5 a very blissful welcome back to crossfit last night (after taking 2 weeks off…) I didn’t think it could get much sweeter – only to wake up to this… for 10 seconds I actually thought 1000 lunges was the cherry on top to my return back to a healthy lifestyle…

    1. Heather S

      Haha me too. And then I’m wondering what tomorrow’s wod will be and how I’ll do it with post- 1000 lunge quads!! I am a 1000% Crossfit nutcase

    1. Ryan F

      Yup, me too… I’ve thought “but won’t that kill me?” after reading a posted WOD too many times to trust that instinct any longer 😛

  3. Vanessa Champion

    Was very happy that the 1000 lunges was a joke. As I was shovelling ice this morning I thought… I’m doin this for lunges?! Hahaha

    Front squats 3RM
    85-95-105-115-125×2. Felt heavy today…

    Deck I death
    274 reps plus 2 500m rows
    First deal of death and kinda loved it 🙂

    WU x 1
    Group WU

    Back Squat 6 x 3
    175 – 175 – 175 – 185 – 185 – 185

    Deck of Death (w/ 1-arm ring rows instead of pullups)

    I knew when I got through my rows before the half way mark that I had a chance.

  5. Heather Colleen

    Migraine today, wanted to see if a WOD would help. Oddly enough, it did…for a little while anyway.

    Front Squat x3

    Didn’t go for a PR, felt a bit woozy in the last set.

    Deck of Death (First attempt at this one, can’t wait to try it when feeling 100%)

    Completed 232 reps +2 rows (got ALL THE BURPEES)

    I might have looked drunk/stoned during the WOD, but I felt good for having at least attempted it. My favourite part of this one was the drive home in the storm…with no wipers. Thankfully Mac is a phenomenally good driver.

    Deck of Death Rx
    Time= 22:56

    I was preparing for this WOD all day. Never finished it before. Very excited!

  9. Ginette

    Ok….I have to admit I was fooled! I am on vacation this week and thought I would tackle this crazy amount of lunges at home! I did 250 in 10 minutes and thought to myself….this is Crazy!!!! Few minutes later noticed the WOD had been changed….you got me! 🙂

    1. Patrick Arseneau

      OMG this made me LOL. Poor Ginette!!! Look at it on the bright side, you got a kick as workout done without stepping out! Good job 🙂

  10. Gillyon

    Front squats (3) 105
    Shared the bar with some strong ladies. 🙂

    WOD – 22:14
    No PR for me today. But I knew that was coming. I was slow on the transitions.
    Great class though. I heart this WOD!

  11. Front squat 5×3 reps @ 115# (felt like it should have been a little heavier, don’t quite have my 1RM numbers figured yet, % might be a bit off)

    Deck of death

    Was in the middle of 10 pull-ups at the 25 min mark and only had 2 cards left so I finished them.

  12. Baukje

    Front Squats 5x 3 reps (all at 75%) @85#

    WOD: Deck of Death
    I got several pullups and Burpees in a row…(8 of clubs, 10 of clubs, 5 of clubs, 7 of hearts, J of hearts, 5 of hearts)… ugh! Had 73 reps left.

  13. Steph L


    Lots of mobility

    WOD: “Deck of Death” RX

    Time: 25:05 had 3 pull ups left from my last card at the 25 min mark.

    Great Class Amanda!

    Mob + WU x 1

    Front Squat 3x

    “Deck Of Death”
    23:05 (PR is 21:21)

    My back still hurts but that wasn’t the issue. Just didn’t have the energy needed to get a PR today. Nice work everyone! Death of Death is always a fun one 🙂

  15. Amanda

    Strength: 5 sets of 3 reps Front Squats @ 75% = 105#.
    I got to share the rack with some very awesome ladies.

    WOD rx’d: I had around 10 cards left, and a lot of them were face cards. I don’t really care how many cards I have left anymore, all I know is that after 4 years I still don’t get through the damned deck. Although I do think it was a small PR. I also did 3 cards out of Maria’s deck by accident before I realized I was on the wrong deck. (12 reps) 🙂

    My pullups have gotten a bit weak with my shoulder injury so I need to work on strengthening them again.

    Front squat x3

    Deck of death: 56 reps left, had over 100 reps left last time 🙂 Scaled pull ups with green band, looking forward to being done with the bands in WODs!

    Front squat x3

    WOD: “Deck of Death”

    **pull-ups with purple band

    Time: 24:55

  18. Front squat x3

    WOD: “Deck of Death”

    **pull-ups with green band

    Had 80 reps and both rows left at the time cap. I kept getting pullups and only had 1 pullup card left when it was done. Bless you 8 of Clubs.

    Enjoyed this workout!

  19. Heather S

    Front squat 5s @ 105

    Lighter than my 75% but managed to keep my heels down and my chest and elbows up which is what I was working to do.

    Deck of death:
    40 cards remaining. I had a run of hearts/burpees that would make a professional gambler proud!! Also got both rows.

    Loving the wods this week; Annie (by choice) followed by deck of death (big time fav). Hardly wait to see what’s up for tomorrow

  20. Chantal L.

    Front squats 5 sets of 3 @ 130#

    Deck of death with ring rows: 64 reps left – did 276 reps and 2 rows in total.

    Not really a PR since I did ring rows this time, last time had used some bands and had more reps left. I haven’t used bands since we had no band december!

    1. Chantal L.

      Oh. I also got my 2 rows in a row… flipped the first and all rowers were taken, so flipped the next card and the joker came again so when I got a rower I just did 1000m. On the positive note, I didn’t lose time on the rower transition?

  21. Anca

    First class after an absence of 4 months. Almost fell for Kevin’s joke this morning (1000 lunges), haha!!!

    It’s good to be back and I trust all our wonderful coaches in helping me get back in shape 🙂

    Front squats 5 sets of 3 @ 35#

    “Deck of Death” with ring rows: @ 15:00 min time cap (scaled) – had 186 reps left + 500m row

    Lungs were burning but feels great to be back in action!!! Was nice seeing a lot of you today, as well as many new faces!

  22. First official Crossfit Class after Prep Class

    Front Squats 5 Sets of 3 @ 35#
    Deck of Death with Ring Rows
    146 reps left at 25 minutes.
    Got both Jokers in a Row – something like .035% odds to get both Jokers in a row, but hey, that’s how I roll!

    1. Heather S

      Welcome Louise and interesting “luck” on the jokers! You and Chantal will have to start a support group☺️
