Hi everyone,

My birthday is this Saturday, and would love to see you for the celebration later that evening. Asta has put together an event at the Branded Saloon, 603 Vanderbilt Avenue, with paleo drink specials and live performances.

We'll start the boozing, reminiscing, and general trouble-makeing around 9:30PM, with the live entertainment to begin at 11:30PM.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Really really beautiful work Loris. I'm always eager to see things that reflect the poise and beauty of some of the stuff we do, and that definitely hits all the right buttons.

Plus, its not set to Godsmack. Major win.

Happy Veteran's Day to service men and women past and present. Thank you.


Nice work Loris!


Jess and I just came from a banya in Coney Island. Recommended!

1. Fox, what is a banya? Like, Russian Baths style?

2. That video is gorgeous. Will and I were in Padova a few years ago. It was a pretty cool town. Incredible graffiti, and apparently also a CrossFit!

3. I was lied to by this blog. I read "Active Recovery", but this morning did Angie and now it hurts to type this. Note to self: don't believe the blog.

That is all.

I was able to get in some snatch practice this afternoon.

Warmup:-droms, jump rope, pvc snatch drills

Snatch:-from the mid-hang worked LOTS of high pull, muscle snatch and power snatch into overhead squat at 33, 43, 53.-Then worked squat snatches at 63, really concentrating on getting under the bar and being comfortable landing in a squat snatch.-Then decided to do the Snatch on the minute for 10 minutes WOD that I missed:-reps 1-5 @ 63lbs-reps 5-8 @ 68lbs-reps 9-10 @ 73lbs.I really felt like my snatch form came together today. Starting to feel comfortable with the squat snatch but still need loads of work.-Finshed with some tall snatches at 33x5 and 43x5. Then some snatch balances at 43x3, 53x3, 63x3.

Cool down:-Russian baths (Royal Palace) down by Coney Island. SOOO relaxing and much more spacious than the one in Manhattan! This could potentially be a fun beyond the box field trip!

...and no belts were thrown today.

Good to get some active recovery in. Most painful was probably the adductor foam rolling. Thanks Shane for the extra calf stretches. I'm a little late on my goals for the month, but I'm going to shoot for 6 minutes at the bottom of a squat barefoot by the end of the month. Right now I can do about 3.
