    12:55 @ 95#

    Weight felt right in warm up so stayed there. Thrusters felt normal, but was surprised how tough the OHS felt. Hoped to stay close to Patrick, not a chance.

    Great 8:30 class. Enjoy the day!

    15:56 @ 85#

    OHS were horrible. Disappointed in my form, mobility and ego to push 85#. Learned a lesson.

  7. Julesnextdoor

    13:11, thrusters at 40#, OHS at 22# with 5 second hold at the bottom of each one.

    I really have to work on keeping chest out on OHS, I appreciate Allison for making me do OHS with only the bar to work on this aspect of form.

    In Boston for the weekend vi. ting family.
    Went to CrossFit torque in foxboro with my brother-in-law.

    Strength: push press: 5 sets to find one rep max
    My one rep before this was 73!!!!!

    Then 5 round amrap: 3 mins on, 1min rest
    3 push press ( 65 #)
    5 burpees
    7 pull ups (with band-all dead hang)

    Averaged two rounds per set.

    The coaches there were great. Though i was the only one who warmed up before the workout

  9. Joe

    Did 75# Thrusters
    Did 35# OHS.

    First time with new Oly shoes….what a difference!!!

    Cash out:
    25 back extensions – have to somehow combat how work is killing me slowly by sitting at a computer all day. 🙁

    *ROWATHON FOR BOSTON – date change June 30th (9AM – 1PM)*

    FORMING TEAM 2 – we’re looking to possibly put together a second team. Ariel said he wanted to do this, but our team 1 is full. Anyone else interested?

    Note the date change

    Reebok Crossfit 5th Ave will host a Rowathon to benefit Boston’s Children’s Hospital where some of the kids who were injured in the bombings were treated. Entry fee is $25, and each person needs to row a min of 5k for a team total of 26.2 miles. You DO NOT have to be good at rowing to participate!

    53# felt doable during warm-up, but became too heavy during second set of OHS. Scaled to 43# for remainder.

    13:26 @ 63lbs

    got sloppy but tried hard to pull it together, and got the worst headache probably from too much caffeine, thanks to Steph and Michelle for helping put away my stuff

    Open Gym:
    Snatch Practice, worked up to 73#, then dropped back to 53# for hang snatch practice.

    Annie: 11:53
    Got a new jump rope, and was having trouble getting my DUs, so I did Annie to push myself. They finally started to happen during the round of 30, then it was easy.
