    Cash In = 1.4 mile run to gym

    Warm-Up Sets = 15# (10), 20# (5), 20# (3)

    WOD: 20-25-30-35-40(2)
    Lost focus on point straight ahead on last rep and lost my balance, but still happy with the weight I put up. I had to bail out on 1 rep of 30# on 5/29, so this is progress for me!

    Tabata situps = 5 (abs still super sore from Tuesday)
    Tabata pushups = 4

    Cash Out = foam roller

    Q: Who else can pull off denim in a workout?
    A: Not bfarrel, as he stares in complete awe of what is transpiring in front of him hoping that he too can get to that level one day.

    WOW! Check out Jasen in the news! Perfect rep for the gym. He looks like a total badass.

    The Caveman workout looks cool… NOT! You’d have to pay me billions of dollars to touch grass with my feet or swing from a bug covered tree branch. Gross! I don’t pay high rent to live in the city to touch nature. PASS

    But that stroller workout seems like just the excuse I needed to have a baby B-Boy… ohhh Brendaaan 😉

    Side Note… Eric, looks like the Google Info has to get updated. That guy didn’t mention that the gym has moved on up… or down from over the Body Shop :O

    OHS: After a few weeks off to get my back fixed, and reading the “check your ego at the door” sign, I dropped down in weight, concentrated on form and getting low.

    75(3), 80(3), 85(3), 90(3), 95(3)

    Tabata: Situps – 15, Pushups – 10

    It’s good to be back at CFM, even if it’s only for a few more days. I’m gonna miss this place!
