What’s your middle name(s)?

Bench Press

I’m sure there’ll be a little core cashout as a treat.

    Round 1 was Rx, shin pretty much stopped hitting wrist after that….

    Great class Shane!

    1. QOD: my middle name is Lynn… teachers often thought my first name was Cara-Lynn and I didn’t like that…but I have 3 short, 4 letter names so makes sense πŸ™‚

    1. Baukje

      I don’t have one either! Dutch people mostly don’t as far as I know. Everyone finds it odd, but when I first heard of middle names, I thought it was odd…

  2. Greg

    Bench Press
    10 x 2 reps (#135/145/155/165/175/185/195* / 195/185/185)
    Cash out 43 grass hoppers
    Fun workout Kevin I would say I was able to do 1/2 a grass hopper with my current lack of flexibility!

  3. Ange

    Bench press 10Γ—2
    65-75-85-95-105-110-115-120 (PR) -125 x1 (PR)
    10# PR !! not bad for 6 am and a bottle of wine

    I got to 125# once ( I had to do it because Cara did it πŸ™‚ I started talking midway and then couldn’t get it for 2nd rep…. I was going to try it again but we had 30 seconds left.
    Fun sharing the bar Cara – you are a strong lady!

    Cash out – Tabata Grasshoppers… first round was RX and then crap… didn’t count them – just attempted to do them…. I swore more so then counted reps…

  4. Julia

    WU x 2

    Bench press 10×2 reps
    PR by 25lbs today giving me a 100lbs bench press!

    My middle name is Elizabeth the same as 95% of the females in my high school grad class

    I’m so happy that I PR’d today as its my last day until Christmas!!!

    I wanted to thank everyone who bought treats and suffered through my terrible fundraising wod I would not be getting on plane today with out all your support!!!!!!!!! Thanks and I’m sad that I will no longer be bringing you treats on Friday because the next two weeks I’ll be in Africa!!!

    Thanks again!

    1. Ohhhhhh! I love it when people say this!
      It makes me wonder why they use their middle name instead of their first name. So many possibilities! Awful first name. Running from the law. Already a “insert first name here” in the family.

  5. Baukje

    Bench Press: 10 x 2
    WU 35# bar – shoulder felt good!
    55#-60#-65#-65# (started struggling a little) – 65#-70# x 1, then adjusted, put my hands a little wider and got a second rep – 70# x 1
    I think my 1RM was 70#, which I did 2x, so new 1RM is 75#?

    Cashout: Tabata Grasshoppers… yay…
    63 (need to work on hip mobility, especially on my right hip! I couldn’t reach well with my right)

    Cashout :V-snaps ans sit-ups

    QOD: Anne…which is not nearly as nice as my sibling’s middle names so I always thought Mom just ran out of names!

  12. QOD: My middle name is “Gail”. Named after my mother’s oldest sister, which is pretty awesome because she’s the kookiest, sharp witted, happiest, marching to the best of her own drum woman I know. It would be an honour to turn out like her πŸ™‚

    69 poorly done grasshoppers πŸ˜›

    It’s my 200th class!!!

  18. Trent

    Attempted “Bull” rx. Got 10 ohs @135 then lowered weight to 95. By then I was energy strapped and much like last year did not want to keep going.

    1round and 25 ohs
