Thanks Gabrus! I'll have to get you that photo of your pink shoes. I'm holding it hostage until I get those graphic novels from you...

BTW, I just read Kingdom Come which was kick ass. Along with Black Orchid (with a great swamp thing tie in) and a few of the Death books.

155 across.

Good to be back and see everyone. Hopefully I'll be able to come by more often.

Front Squats:185x5, 205x5, 225x5(pr), 245x2*, 245x2 (Should have tried for 235, but I was greedy...)

Double Unders:50 first round, 51 second round.

Have not done 5x5 for a while and did not feel strong today. Weight felt pretty heavy@245 coming out of the rack. 5x3's were strong last month where I topped out at 245x3(pr) and 255x2 (so close to 3...)

Fun lifting with you Malcolm, once you find a working rack position you'll be killing these.

Was looking through the site to compare performance in the Deadlift/Pushup wod from last time. Lucked out that it was on 1.18.09. Became very excited when I saw that my time dropped from 3:24 to 2:31!

CrossFit is awesome!

I suck at front squatting. I need to figure out the rack. Or maybe I am just a sissy and it is supposed to hurt that much.

135X5, 155X5, 175X2, 155X2. I then did some zombie front squats with just the bar and then 115X5 twice.

On the exercises I hate I will have to now officially list front squats. Is there something sick about me that I want to do the things I hate the most?

ugh. today was not my day. it just felt so heavy!

70, 80, 85, 75, 75

i did a few partial sets that david made me redo in full. these are just the full sets. my form was falling apart at 85, so i scaled back. i looked back in my journal and saw that i lifted 100lbs when i did 3x5 FS back in march. how did i do that???

Fsq 5x5: 135, 155, 165, 175, 185

Great work, Adam! Thanks for your help, Jeremy!

Squats are feeling SOOO much better than they used to, so I'll concur that CF is indeed AWESOME.

David McG., caught a glimpse of your strict pullups, very inspiring. You're serious about getting better at this shit and I appreciate that.

front squat: 95x5, 105x5, 115x5, 120x5, 125x2 failed on the third, 125x3 failed on the fourth... grr. Felt very heavy at the end and left me quivery and starving. Can't wait to try it again - thanks for the pointers everyone, I will try them all out next time.

David McG -- 9:35 to 6:04? That's fantastic!

In other news, wish I could clean some of this weight I can front squat...

And shall continue my quest for bodyweight snatch.
