    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.

    1. Good job on the front squat PR, and that’s a pretty ridiculous score on the wod.

    2. A great day at the gym for you Kevin. Congrats on the long awaited PR, and as for the 173 squats….. gross!

    3. Thanks everyone! I had more fun watching the rest of the classes than doing it myself 🙂

    Whoa…took me about 400m to find my “stride”. The first 100m of that were absolutely laughable. Good times….

    Cashout: calf, quad and hamstring stretches.

    1. Great time on the run Lora.. You looked smooth through the first lap, and nice sprint finish! 🙂

    1. 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!

    2. Congrats on the muscle up. You will be stringing them together in no time. Awesome score on the WOD too.

    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. 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! 🙂

  27. 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.

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