David, I'm going to assume you posted that link because of me. I'll never tell you. Stop being nosy.

17 something or other. Shameful, really.

Man, that was hard. Remind me not to take a week off again, will you all?

Erik, thanks for getting me thru that suckiness and for working your butt off tonight.

Lovin' the ropes!!

11:12 as rx'dNot that bad, especially in light of my dislike for overhead squats.

Rope climbing = fun.

Couldn't make it last night, being the last day of the month and all...

So I hit the gym later and found my max deadlift (7x1)


I was hoping to break an even 300 but it wasn't in the cards. Next time...

13:36And I'm in general agreement with others- we NEED to have a work-out with a rope-climbing element.

John, there is no workout more beautiful than a 7x1 deadlift workout.

Anyway, the plan for Saturday is to meet up at the 4th Ave Pub. Drinking will commence at 9PM.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for letting me hang last night--you all seem like a great bunch and I'm looking forward to kicking ass with you all in the future. 10:53 subbing 55lb OHS and 40lb lunges. Legs feel awesome today.- Chris

It was great having you. Hope you enjoyed the WOD and opera auditions going on in the background.

Jeremy-John B,

Deadlift 7x1 is workout every able bodied human being should do on a regular basis.

This week's chapter in rebuilding the bench.Bench Press 5x3245x3255x3255x3260x3265x3

Definitely feeling smoother than it was a few weeks ago.

Did a max set of kiping pullups, 30, and then some knees to elbows.

I will be very happy when we have a pullup bar
