    See you guys at 7:30pm. Will be missing the 7am crew but I have some stupid work meeting to attend at 8am. Have fun and see you Thursday for some 7am fun!

  2. Vikram

    Awake and dressed (even wearing sneakers). But just too ill and wobbly. I haven’t taken 2 days since way back when…but I need another day.

    Back to bed. Love the 10 Death by 10. Jealous.

  3. Jared

    14 squats-last time I remember not staying down between all rounds. This is a big improvement.

    15 sprints and 1 run from 16. That got rough really fast.

  4. Adam Van Auken

    B2B Tabata Squats – 14. I’ve never done this B2B version so I didn’t have a benchmark. I was shooting for 15 after round 1 but after round 2 I chickened out. I think 15 is a good goal. I think I’ll try shaking out my legs quickly at the top once per round next time.

    Death by 10 – 16. Thanks 6 AMers for the help getting through the last one! I think 17 is definitely feasible for me although it’s a big difference from 16 since there’s no rest in between.

    @Vikram – I miss you buddy! Get well soon.
    @Jared – These Modern BCAAs are ruining my normally tasty protein drink. Yuck! I better see some improvements.

  5. Vikram

    AVA – you have no idea how much I miss my Crossfit family. My wife just told me to quit moping…back at it tomorrow, hopefully. Going back into the office today.

    Jared/Mike got me onto BCAAs too. Have to say that they’ve worked for me.

    Shout out to Brett and his nephews (& Boo) in today’s picture. He had some funny stories about them taking on Brendan this Monday…

    @AllisonNYC: I’m not sure if you are able to easily access the HTML code for the post in WordPress, but if you can: inserting around the photo code should center it! So it would look like this:

    Hope this helps!

    B2B squats, 10
    I like how Brendan said “make the pain worth it”.
    Im going to take that one with me all day!

    Not so innocent 10 meter sprints!
    I got cut off on my last 13!

    6am CrossFit totally makes my day πŸ˜‰

    Have a great one!

  8. Melanie

    Tabata squats: 12

    Death by 10: 14 – I think I have a little more in me but this workout is still deceiving.

    I fell up the subway stairs this morning. My legs are so tired after these past few days, especially today, that I couldn’t lift them up fast enough to keep up with the crowd. Rest day tomorrow!

  9. amy edelman

    Tabata squats: 12
    Started at 14 for the first few, dropped to 13 then to 12 but @ Adam Van Auken started to get pretty intense in the last few rounds…lots of yelling going on! πŸ™‚ got back to 14. Thanks Adam!

    Death by 10: completed 15, couldn’t even start the 16 so I dropped out.

    Tabata squats + sprints = awkward looks from co-workers when I yelp trying to get up & sit at my desk. πŸ˜‰

  10. Paige

    tabata: 14
    my max was 17 by round 5 I was hurting but Brendan’s enthusiasm/”make it worth it” speech kept me going.

    DEATH by 10: 14

    @Mel- are you OK?
    @Vikram- feel better! see you tomm!

  11. SoCalAndrew

    Tabata squats: 15, although I got as high as 18. Next time, we should do this with some weight! Tabata front squats are the only way to fly.

    Death by 10: 15 and a few steps from completing 16.

  12. mcohen

    Crossfit Rehoboth

    12 x 2 back squats at 135 lb

    I have no idea why we did that rep scheme it weight.

    Metcon
    3 rounds
    400 meter run
    12 x body weight deadliff (165 lbs)

  13. AllisonNYC

    FTR the phone has been recovered!! Hooray!!

    You’re just full of great ideas, Andrew. πŸ™‚ Don’t go!

  14. BAston

    5 rounds of running the great lawn loop, 15 toes to bar, 15 burpees. Trying to enjoy the park while I can, looks like I may be getting a new job soon.

  15. Brett

    Nice that I finally see a photo on this blog worthy of posting!

    My 10 year old nephew Liam (the one in the red shirt who is Jared’s height) told me the following after his 2 training sessions.

    “Brendan is a very good squatter, and is almost as good me. It took him 15 year to squat like that, but it took me only 2 days, because I’m a natural.”

    He has challenged Brendan to a squat-off when he comes back next year. I have to say, he is far and away the best squatter in the family.

    Tabata – 12 (15 was the highest)
    Death by 10 meters – 15 rounds

  16. DT

    EJ! Thanks for the love.

    I don’t know about Brad, but I hardly ever go on dates. Kind of an introvert I guess. Sooo strike while the irons hot!!

    Hope to see you there, pay to play!

  17. AllisonNYC

    Finally forced myself to workout.. This is #4 this year. UG

    3 Rounds:
    12 Strict, Narrow HSPUs (Unbroken each round)
    3 -2 -1 Rope Climbs
    20 DB Squats with the 25s

    I caught myself staring off into space a number of times. I’m wiped from sleeping in until 11 this morning.

  18. ashleigh

    10 squats – got 18 the first round, but resting at the bottom was tough! My feet were cramping up from staying in one position for so long.

    12 laps + 11

    Great job on the running Rolf!

  19. BAston

    Hi All,

    I am confirmed for September 7th from 7pm-10pm to be guest bartending for charity (specifically, Standing Tall). I hope everyone can come out, and have a few drinks, and help me raise money for a great cause. Hope to see everyone there!

  20. jmiz

    Crossfit Corning, NY Radisson

    20 min AMRAP

  21. Xan

    Quick 6am PT session at NYSC: 180 push ups 36 pull ups 180 sit ups 60 dips, cindyish style.

    @AllisonNYC, oh come on its not thattt bad, isn’t it kinda refreshing. And how come only 4 times this year? Extremely jealous of your wake up time.

  22. Joe

    Tabata B2B sucks – 8

    Death by 10m sucks more – 15 + 15 reps.

    AllisonV – you run like a gazelle…even 10m at a time.

    6:30 – Mike, Allison and Alex – you were all honorary members of Team Old Balls tonight. πŸ™‚

  23. whit

    Tabata Squats: 10… burn

    Death by 10M: 19+19… should’ve pushed for 20

    Big ups to Alex for finding my phone

  24. cat

    B2B- 9….started off at 14 and it was a slow decline!

    Death by 10m- 19+….17 (i think!).

    i def finished 19 and went into the next round. I was tired and fucked up my counting so i just ran it out for the last min. I know i was behind Whit, so i’m guessing around 17?

    great mobility work tonight Ali!

  25. AllisonNYC

    Xan, I spend all of my time in the gym worrying about you guys.. I need to worry about myself, too!
    Now that we live closer I’m excited to get my workouts in easier. It will be good to get my strength & conditioning back on track!

    You guys rocked tonight! Super impressed by Whitt & Cat tonight.. and Allison for managing to look so beautiful during that madness!
