My goal is to do this all unbroken (totally doable), and not assess any penalties!

Yeah Mr. Gabrus!

I'm leaving work a little early on September 12 to catch me some appointment TV at 4:30!

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChris A.

Right on Mr. Gabrus!

Feedback: Checking this blog is usually the first thing I do in the morning. Sometimes I have to pee first. But usually it's WOD first. Keep up the good work, coaches.

Yesterday's squats were at 200#. Paid the price for not coming early enough to get mobility work in on my shoulders. Sad robot.

Tonight the black band and I have a hot date at the pullup bar. I am determined to get to first base.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBilly Keefe

After some last minute cancellations we have 4 spots open for the Kipping Pullup class. Come one, come all, come kip!

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNoah

thanks for the shoutout CFSBK!
set your DVRs or more likely...tell your kids to set their DVRs

Sorry to the swimmers that I bailed on today, but I was up early enough to realize I could lift instead...Clean and Bench so much better than Free and Breast
Power Cleans
Bench Press (summer of 3 wheels)
280x5x3, 180x20

Gabrus! I was about to apologize to you! I had a swim fail. I got into Jeremy's car and, well... it didn't want to wake up.

Ended up riding my back through the park instead, which was really nice. It's a beautiful morning.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMargie

Gabrus and Margie, you guys picked the right morning to skip the pool. Apparently it was closed this morning due to someone... dropping the kids off at the pool last night.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJJ


August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMargie

Double half Jackie? That is some evil genius programming right there.

August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterJoe

Margie, I know; you guys would have had a really shitty swim.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJJ

What a flattering picture -- can't wait for this weekend's WOD.

New job craziness means I haven't been able to come Tues-Wed-Thurs, but I'll be back on Friday to practice muscle ups for Saturday!

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMatt Katz

Yeah Gabrus!

@joe. sounds like a Dr.Evil Wod.

August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterDH3

Annie Sakamoto is a true American hero. If you've never seen the "Nasty Girls" video, check out the link below. Watching it is like the CrossFit baptism rite


August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterDavid Osorio

Annie Sakamoto is awesome! If looking her up on youTube be sure to write "nasty girls" and not "dirty girls", unless well.. you're not looking for crossfit videos.

I usually work with everyone because my schedule is all over the place. I like all of you coach-y people and try to cycle through each of your classes so that NO ONE FEELS LEFT OUT. :)

I am coming to this WOD tonight! Mainly because i'm feeling really invincible (11x120# bsq last night!) and need to be put back in my place which this will do.


August 11, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterasta

Coincidentally I named my CFSBK fantasy football team Annie Sakamoto yesterday

August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterShawn Sadjatumwadee

Right now I work with Jeremy the most though I've taken class with everyone. Its actually hard to remember whos coached me the most since in almost every class theres always coaches helping out even if they arent coaching.

Having Shane sub our strength class Mon, I realized I hadnt been in a Shane class for awhile. Is that cause I havent been coming inthe morning or Thursdays?

August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterShawn Sadjatumwadee

Gabrus! This looks awesome!

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMargie

7:20 Rx - NO Drops, NO Burpees
500m row
Thrusters 25 unbroken
Pull Ups 5-5-5
536m Row (didn't pay attention)

Breaking this up was easier on the reps but took much time switching stations.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarcos

Double Half Jackie



Rows approximately 1:52-1:55 pace
Thrusters unbroken
Pull-Ups unbroken

Happy with the row pacing. Sub 6:30 possible for me. Would have to get a little more uncomfy on rower though.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJefff

That's a HALF!!!!???? Jesus.
Shane - You. Are. THE. Man.
Thanks for getting me through that.
Must do more conditioning work. The erg is not my friend.

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered Commentercorbett

15:41 with a 33lbs bar and some jumping assisted pullups.

Thrusters were definitely a killer. Maybe I should I have scaled the bar a little more.
The 2nd set I had to break up into I think 3 or 4 chunks.
Pullups were 5-5-5.

August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterChristine Naclerio

Fun day at the gym today, Got to work with mr Ben G himself.

I have to admit that when I first started CFSBK almost a year ago, I hated the ERG. Now I really enjoy it, if that is possible.

Double Half-Jackie (The Smithers or Dr Evil Wod)

first row: 1:38-1:42 ish (went out too fast
Thrusters 25 unbroken
pull ups unbroken

2nd row: 2:05 ish
Thrusters 10, 8, 7 (or something like that, bar not put down)
pull ups un broken.

Time 7:50

This wod left me completely gassed, but was a lot of fun.

August 11, 2011 | Registered CommenterDH3

(make mine a) Double Half Jackie

7:59 Rx'd
Thanks to Dan for keeping me in a pace. Sorry I had to abandon you to teach :(

A bit disappointed that I broke up the pull ups in 2nd round. I don't know how people did this in 6 and change!

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterFox

13:43, 45# and 8p/u instead of 15 - but managed to do 2-3 p/u at a time so that's an improvement!

Christine was awesome encouragement, enjoyed doing this "team/buddy" style. Thrusters pounded me into the ground, the 2nd set was pretty sadface.

Nice to see everyone tonight, especially you BAZ.

Please pass the fish oil...

Also, am I the only CFSBK'r who uses beyond the white board?

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterasta

Pre-class Workout
Benched rep-out: 15x150
Checked shoulder range of movement:
Pullups: no issue
Strict Dips: no issue (did 20 unbroken just to pressure test)
Row: no issue
HSPU: no issue
Kettlebell swing: no issue
WTF, so why does my shoulder hurt when I drink a cup of tea!?

3 rounds of
8 roll to V-ups
14 pistols (7 then switch legs)
10 hand release pushups
5 pullups

Double 1/2 Jackie
Round 1: 3 minutes flat
Transition back to erg: ~10 seconds
Round 2: 3 minutes 33 seconds

Unbroken everything, transitioning took more time than I thought, especially to and from the pullup bar. Really surprised myself on the erg -- 1:45 felt really good the first round, couldn't keep it up in round 2 though.

Really great balance of being able to go hard and allowing myself to go there.

Nice work everyone!

August 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDan Rx'd

8:55 on the WOD today. Was completely and utterly gassed afterwards, although it didn't feel that way entirely during the WOD. I still don't know how people did it in under 7 either.

August 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoel W

Had to dig deep to keep moving on this WOD: 12:46, most difficult were the thrusters.
