The Total last night rocked-- thanks to Jeremy, Margie and Paulie for the coaching and judging.

As part of my year's goals set in January I made what I thought was an ambitious but attainable goal of 800 for this total, which would be up from 725 in October. Needless to say I am super stoked to get 825 (!) in addition to 3 PR's.

Lift made:Squat: 300, 315,325 (50# PR)Press: 135, 142.5, 145 (10# PR)Dead: 335, 355 (40# PR)

My only missed lift came on my very last attempt for a 375 dead lift, which would have been amazing, so personally, this event was a major success.


I find a fire inside of me that is hard to get in touch with during the day-to-day, much less explain, but it makes me feel alive in a way that few things in life have ever done.

I hope I never hear anyone at the gym complain that they aren't strong enough: there's a proven solution right here, strength cycle is a science and a surefire way get strong. Props to Jeremy and David for creating and offering this amazing program for us.

I have no bike racing experience, but yes, would be very interested in the B-Bun (odd/fun name). Good excuse for me to buy a helmet - I will be a quite sight on my broke-ass Jamis Citizen. Also, I have been totally killing it on the slopes this season - dunno if any of you ski, but crossfit is THE way. I have so much more technical command and my buddies have all seen/commented that I am a much different athlete out there. I owe a big thank you to all of you - this is where constantly varied/functional mobility/high intensity meets reality.

Thanks so much to everyone who came to watch and cheer (and celebrate after!). My fellow cyclers, you did awesome last night and I've enjoyed spending most of my free time with y'all the past two months. Jeremy, you rock the house. And all the coaches and friends who have offered support, you're amazing! Seriously, full of gratitude for everyone today!

I made 527.5 for my total, a 75 lb gain on the total I did in December (and 155 lbs on the August total...)Squat: 215 (50 lb PR)Press: 72.5DL: 240 (25 lb PR)

And yes, CF/Strength Cycle has totally upped my snowboarding game as well.

ALSO: Today's the last day to RSVP for this week's rest day dinner (tomorrow, 8:30, Takashi)

max reps: 16 @ 85

tabata dl 225 - 30 total reps

i noticed fwiw that crossfit made me strong enough to ski ok despite my technique deficiencies. One problem was actually that I am so used to being on my heels it was hard to get onto the balls of my feet properly.

one of my Paleo Challenge goals was to get a certain close family member on fitday, logging her stuff.

i never thought she would do it... but she has. not only that, she did it for a few weeks running without telling me, then POW hit me with her good news.

totally made my day.

Samir - those are way to many warm up reps at too close to work weight. And if you felt weak, why the increase during the work?
