  2. 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. 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. You do NOT want to do that!! We used to do 400 lunges for time and it would cripple us for a week after.

    2. 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 😛

    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 🙂

  4. 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.

    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.

    Fun sharing the bar with you ladies.

    Deck of Death Rx
    Time= 22:56

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

  10. 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 🙂

    2. Well Ginette I’m glad you only did 250! Although 250 is not easy! Your butt is going to be sore!

  11. Warmup
    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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Mobility

    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

    Group WU

    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 🙂

  16. 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.

      1. Don’t be too hard on yourself Amanda… Better to respect an injury than to get a pr…

    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!

  18. Mobility
    WUx1 (12 reps)

    Front squat x3

    WOD: “Deck of Death”

    **pull-ups with purple band

    Time: 24:55

  19. 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!

  20. 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

  21. 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. 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?

      1. Ugh that is the worst!! You clearly need someone else to shuffle your cards for you

  22. 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!

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