    Thursday = Skinny rest day.

    Go CFM. This WOD looks so cool. Might get the itch to come in this evening…

    3 Rounds at 15:40 with 145# cleans and 2 pood carries. Maybe a handful of good hang squat cleans in there but a lot of room for improvement. I could only do 3 cleans in a row at the beginning and this quickly went to doubles. Farmer carries really punish you if you go slowly. I like that.

    If you don’t take care of your calluses the barbell will and you won’t like the result.

    That was a fun one this morning.

    5 rounds @ 105 lbs.

    Personally, I am still out on my toes and jumping forward. But, I felt good on a number of cleans.

    Props to Amy & Paige. Oly lifting is so hard for me, and you guys have come in and made it look easy. Just get double unders and you both will be ready for the 2013 games.

    The Farmer Walk destroys your hand strength so you have to concentrate of lifting the clean with your body and not your arms. Great in theory, but I still think with my arms too much.

    4 rounds @ 85 lbs (weight did not feel really heavy but 1st time doing these and I want to make sure my form is right)

    The farmers walk destroyed me! Why do I want to do more of it then…

    @Adam – I think you’re addiction to CFM is contagious

  5. sara

    Just under 4 rounds

    Cleans @ 43#. First time doing this lift.

    KB carrys @ 16KG

    Mailman coming up the street as we were doing Farmer Carrys down: “Man, crossfit is no joke! They work you guys hard!”

    4 rounds I think.. stripped weight down to 95 for last round as my squats were going to shit. Weird stuff still tight in legs.

    Check out the new coaches page! Look at those pictures………

  7. Vikram

    Ha! Love the pictures and blurbs on the coaches page.

    You guys are making it hard to take a rest day. I want to come in…but I do need a day off. Ugh…

    EROC – it was 20 minutes on the blog originally. So all that HgH hasn’t blinded you yet. Ha ha. Still a sick score. You’re such a freak of nature. In a good way, though.

  9. Amylynne

    3 rds + 7 hang squat cleans + 15 ghds

    Cleans at 83 lbs
    Farmer’s walk with 1.5 pood on either side. Rough.

    Awesome job going RX’D Ej!

  10. BAston

    3 rounds at 95#. I need to work on that lift. 1 rep was good, then the next sucked. I was a hot mess.

    GHD’s & farmers carry (aka the worst thing ever) rx’d.

    Great coaching EJ!

    OK, work boot camp in Central Park. Trainer dude models his boot camp workout on Crossfit bodyweight workouts. Represented CFM. It’s all about the ROM baby.

  12. sassypants

    *went all the way to the second white line at 3rd ave for the first farmers carry. oops and ouch.

  13. Joe

    2 rounds+cleans+farmers walk+6 GHD’s.

    farmers [email protected] – Rx

    My forearms felt like Popeye’s (or EROC’s) when it was all over!

    Good to be back 2 days in a row…super sore but glad to be that way. Gotta strip my vacation fat off…then my regular fat…then my baby fat. 🙂
