    Push ups are still one of my goats. Need to get to the box more regularly to get my upper body strength up.

    Oh boy 6am is early!

    1. it was nice to see you & Christine this morning! I love it when evening people try the early morning classes!

      oh and my time was 9:42.

      Ate like crap yesterday and I really felt it in today’s WOD

  4. WU x 2

    Foam roll / lacrosse ball …. do I get a paleo point for this, or does it have to be done on a non-WODing day ?

    The Century Club (last time I heard this it was back in university and it had to do with beer, a shot glass and drinking EMOTM for 100 minutes ๐Ÿ˜€ )

    25 Shoot throughs (I consider mine half jump throughs)
    25 Pull ups(black)
    25 Double Unders
    25 Hand release pullups

    TIme: 8:53

    Nice to see some evening peeps show up at 6 am ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It would be on a non WODing day.
      You get 1 bonus point for either doing a WOD or mobility (which is today’s topic on the paleo blog) up to a max of 5 bonus points per week.

    2. *Note for next time: Pushups on shoot throughs (only) were from the knee

      AND I’m pretty sure only a ninja can perform hand release pullups ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. QOD: As long as you don’t neglect the other components of fitness as well as proper technique, I believe that in Crossfit there is no such thing as too strong or too fast.

  6. What CFT trainer says/demos:
    First using the paralettes perform a plank push up, then in one fluid motion swing your body through the paralettes and position yourself to perform a perfect dip with textbook extension at the top. Finally reverse the fluid motion and return to the push up position. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ (Happy faces would be butterflies if I knew how to make them!!)

    What cft member hears:
    Start with one of my goats and make it worse by doing it on the parallettes; stumple my amply proportioned lower torso between narrowly spaced parralettes; if arms are still working drop my ample bottom to the floor; recover from that and get myself back where I started so that I can take another shot at it; thus the term “shoot throughs”. Hmmm sounds like “fun” :s

    WU x 2

    Foam roll / lacrosse ball/band/Amanda ๐Ÿ™‚ hamstrings, shoulders, wrists

    25 Double Unders (unbroken)

  11. Warmup
    Cleans (5) 55-85-105 (felt terrible…ugg..and technique was worse) 85

    WOD with abmat
    Pull-ups felt great. I think I found my rhythm again. HSPU were rough after all those shoulder killer movements. Great job 6amers. Loved seeing some new faces. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Mobility WUx1

    EMOTM Squat Cleans

    5 mins 3 reps #135
    5 mins 1 rep every 30 Secs #165

    9:19 RX

    Good coming in with the 8:30 crew. Didn’t have my bacon and eggs before going though didn’t feel right. Need bacon.

      1. We each add up our benchmark times. Lowest total wins. Losers does 100 burpees + 20 burpees for every second off the winner’s score.

      2. that sounds dangerous specially since at the moment you have me beaten by 5 secs ill think about it ๐Ÿ˜›

      3. I only got your row by 1 i was 7:48 you were 7:49 and you had 3:27 on the burpee KBS i had 3:33 6 sec difference so it’s 5. Getting way to into the math on this rofl.

  13. Mob
    Foam Roll and Lacrosse ball work
    Took a day to rest ( kinda )
    Rowed 2k – 8:09

    Good QOD today, it sparked a very interesting question over supper. For me, for right now, so long as I know I’m doing as much as my body can do without pushing myself to injury, it’s enough.
