A 1st and 3rd finish in men and womens division and 2nd place overall? I smell shenanigans!

Good Luck Snip! A good friend of ours who was an English/Poetry Professor at Pitt is doing the opposite of you--and is coming to Brooklyn College.

Awesome day yesterday at Virtuosity! Great job to Katie, Josh and the rest of the SBK folk! We represented well and earned our 2nd place finish...although we had to be pretty darn close to first! ;)

For today:Warmup:-Light droms-3 rounds of the triplet: jumping split squats, arms behind back gilly-stretch thing, tricep stretch.-Technique work on the clean to jerk transition. good stuff. knew I should have been paying more attention to this, and today's practice made it all seem a little smoother.

Skipped the WOD to make up yesterday's squats.LBBSQ:(45x5, 95x5, 125x5, 135x3)work: 145x5x3-felt good. worked hard on keeping my knees out.

Then did some strict Presses:(45x5, 55x5, 65x3)work: 72x5x3-4th and 5th rep of each set were harder, but I'm working on keeping a tighter core at the beginning and throughout the lift. This has really made it feel easier.

Cooldown:-lots of foam rolling and lacrosse ball torture!

Wod: 8 rounds + 5 DLs & 5 PUs @240# (RX+25#)

At home: ran park loop, C&J 1 1 1 1 1 @135# (split jerk, new for me), 50 push ups (broken), 100 sit ups (unbroken)

Good luck Snip. Visit often.

I can't pick a favorite song... But if you insist I'll go with "Bodies" by Smashing Pumpkins (I know it's old).

Late afternoon WOD: @185, 7 rounds flat.

Post wod accessory: 50lb db farmers walk, twice around the black mats. Had to stop twice.

Scaled this to fit in the needs of my strength cycle. So I did 5 rounds for time to keep it short. Did the weight RX'd at 240. Did it in 6:08. If my hands would not try to tear I would be faster. Also need to get better at cycling deadlifts at this weight quicker.

I am tired.

Couldn't comment earlier because I was playing tour guide for my sister today. (She had a really great time in Laurel's teaser class yesterday!) This is too sweet and it's stuff like this that will make me miss you all so much! The BFS joke made me laugh, and Malcolm made me look so tough in that photo! I'm going to try and escape packing hell and make one more class before I go, and make you all do some tequila shots after, or during.

Thanks to everyone who came out to MD, it was really fun and I am glad you got a chance to meet Lamar and some of my Achilles buddies! (They'll be down one volunteer now...hint hint.)

I apologize to Josh if my sister embarrassed you by telling everyone at the bar about your Strongman victory; she was genuinely impressed. Congrats to everyone who competed yesterday, you guys and gals rocked!

Posted earlier but it didn't take for some reason...To all our strong people, great job!!! I agree with Shawn, however, that there's a fix on in the system. First and third in both men and women and we get second over all??

Snip, so sad to hear you're leaving us but very happy for you and your MFA program. We will hear from you, yes?

Today, did the coach fox warmup:

jumping split squatswide stance gilly stretchtricep behind neck stretch

Then we worked on the clean rack to jerk rack transition. This was a new movement so I will definitely need more reps to drill it into my nervous system.

The wod was an amrap over 12 minutes of

5 dead lifts at 175# (rx'ed is 1.5x bodyweight, which for me would be about 225#)10 pullups

My pullups started to deteriorate in about the 3rd round. My grip gave out finally such that I fell off the bar with about 30 seconds to go. At that point I had 4 rounds, 5 dls and 8 pullups and a bit of a bruised back.

Coach fox helped me out with the ice pack, Thanks!

But I'll be fine.

I ripped up my hands again though, just about as bad as Murph day. Dan R provided some tips on how to protect the hands. I don't quite get how they managed not to destroy hands on that Helen-gone-wild event at the games.
