A huge thanks to Dave and Chris for the welcome I received over the last 2 weeks. As a visitor it is a wonderful thing to know that there is a friendly box where one can keep training while on holidays. I really hope that you or some CFSBK members make it down to Australia some time and I can guarantee a warm welcome in Brisbane from Matt Swift and his team. Thanks too for supporting my 50th birthday Fran... I'll be sure to post when I get under the 10 mins.... Train hard, train well and good luck with the growth of the box... Cheers, Roger.
If you're interested in the 12th slot on the Ragnar team, give me a holler! sarah at frenchfrieswithpepper dot com.

Not such a good day at the office, I'm afraid. I came in today still feeling a bit sore from yesterday's WOD, and perhaps had psyched myself out a bit. Whatever it was, I decided early on to try just for 6-3-1 on the muscle-ups. But I landed up needing assists on all of those from David. Gah! I'm tempted to beat myself up just a bit more but I'm afraid Chris will wrap a barbell around my head. So let me just sum up:

13:51 at 100 lbs, 6-3-1 assisted muscle-ups

17:05 at 135# and partner assisted MU’s. Wow, this was tough. The push jerks ended up being more like push presses by the end and Shawn was getting one hell of a work out assisting me in the MU’s. I did do almost all the dip portion unassisted (Shawn may have helped on a couple).

@ Chris A from yesterday: EU! It was EU, and I was there, too! Hilarious.

Babies galore at CFSBK! Big congrats to Serena and Ben!!!

Warmup:-pvc dislocates, flag poles, ohs-press, push press, push jerk review-muscle-up review on low rings

WOD:14:01 at 95lbs-muscle-ups were hugely assisted by David with the 6-3-1 reps scheme. This was deflating and I didn't feel strong at all. I was definitely rushing the transition and wasn't pulling far enough before diving my head through. Only one rep all night felt halfway decent...but I can accept that.-the first round of push jerks felt the hardest/heaviest. The row was nothing to write home about.

Definitely looking forward to rest day tomorrow! :)

Missing the gym and missing the barbell. My first week of classes-- isn't. Did active recovery Tuesday and a lot of icing and heat packs.

Resting my back-- seem to have a mild lower back strain and today was the first day I woke up and wasn't in a lot of discomfort. Hope Saturday I can bench and squat. I think I'll stay away from the cleans and deads for a bit longer. Boooo.

Welcome back Margie and congrats to the new parents!

13:42, 95# and ring-row self-assist MUs.

The muscle-up, even in its most neutered state, is a real bear when you don't have a pectoral muscle -- uncomfortable and damn near impossible. Moving forward, I think I want to swap it out with a more basic move.
