    Hope everyone is drying out & safe!

    Quick question: has anyone dealt w/ wrist pain on the press, and have any voodoo magic to fix it? The outside of my left wrist has started twinging at the top when I press. Email [email protected] if anyone has the answer key… thx!

    Jared – you didn’t wear a costume, so I’m not sure that you really went rx’d 😉

    WEAR COSTUMES, PEOPLE. It’s fun. It’s Halloween. It makes people smile. (Trust me, the guy who gave sold me my coffee this morning was very amused.)

    Not a great press day for me, but I’m determined to get my lifts back:
    53-58-63-68(f)-drop set

    5 rounds + 6 thrusters

  3. amy edelman

    Press: 68-73-78-88 (PR – failed on 3rd rep)- 83

    Horrible push ups – Jared very kindly pointed that out 😉

    Happy Halloween! Sorry no costume today Lauren

  4. Katie

    Failed on the 3rd rep of the 4th set at 69# but then got the 5th set

    Thrusters @ 70# stopped after 3 bc of back and wrist injury

    Been stuck working on the couch these last few days with power out at our office building. CFM is a good 45 blocks away, so I havent fought the crowds to get up there yet.
    this morning’s home workout consisted of:
    3 rounds of
    15 pushups
    25 situps
    30 air squats

    with 5 burpees in between.

  8. Adam Van Auken

    Press: 135-140-145-150-150(2). Although I’m off my PR, 150X3 felt a little easier than last time we did this.

    Ladder: 6 plus 3 thrusters. I thought Jared did 7 rounds and was wondering how the heck he did that! This was just the right weight and time for me because the set of 7 would have taken forever (After 2 thrusters I had to put the bar down). My strategy here was to rest just enough so that I could do the thrusters unbroken. I did this through round 6.

  9. mcohen

    Press from behind the neck. Goal to get movement pattern in the correct path. Sets of 3


    Metcon: 5 rounds Rx’d.

    Cash out: 50 unbroken double unders, 15-9-9 GHD/Back Extensions.

    That felt so great to be back at the box this morning.

  10. belbogen

    Nice to see everyone this AM, hoping to make this whole exercise thing more frequent after my (hopefully) final checkup with the hip doctor next week.


    6+9 (95# thrusters)

  11. marilina

    I originally thought I would miss this because I would have practice until late, so I didn’t prepare my costume.

    press: 3x 53, 3×58, 1×63 (Fx2), 3×58, 3×60

    95# front squat. Twice as I put down the 45# bar in warm up I felt a sharp pain up my arm, so I opted out of the thruster.
    6rounds + 5

  12. AllisonV

    Cash In: 1.5 mile easy run to gym

    Press: 35-45-50-55-55 (repeat PR from 10/26)

    Metcon: 5 rounds + 6 thrusters
    45# thrusters (heaviest ever!), dropped to knee push-ups in 3rd round

  13. Ang

    63-68-70-73-75 (2) + pp & 1 set 63 (5) + 53 (8)

    I will get you 75, next time……

  18. Sandy Frankenstorm

  26. Lightbody

    115 on the press. Up 5lbs from last week. Delts still dont love overhead.

    7 thrusters at 100#, 10 push ups. Again, delts just dont like overhead.

    Nice to have elove back. Didnt realized i missed that beard……creeps. Great costumes you guys!

  27. nicola

    60-65-66.5-70 (pp)
    Pr by a whopping 1.5lbs. Still not feeling anything overhead…esp since getting to wburg/dr mike isn’t really doable right now.

    5+4 thrusters @65#

    Who was the dude with the beard?? Good to have the proprietor back!

  28. AllisonNYC
