David’s view from the 2014 CrossFit North East Regional. This video was taken during the final men’s heat of “The 50’s” event. This was one of the most exciting and nerve racking events to watch this year!
- Happy Birthday, David L.!

CrossFit Texoma converted an old roller rink into their current gym. Check out this amazing box!
Finally a new snatch PR today at 85kg (187#). Stoked!
I messed up the bar math for Dave E and myself, hence the first "too heavy" set.
9am class with McMelo. Hit a legit 100lbs snatch for a PR. HBBS 170x3x5. Much more trouble than they should have been. Cash out with Danny – it was his third class. Nice job brah!
Today's lifts at OG last night:
Snatch: 95, 135, 145, 155, 165f, 165 (power snatch), 135 x 2, 135x 2
165 is 10 lb PR for any kind of snatch for me. Today was one of those days when I pull everything high. Felt great to finally get 165 over my head though.
HBBS: 200 x 8 x 4
Then I went for a 1 RM with my press and got 125, failing at 130
Then I did a pistol-squat cash-out: 40 unbroken left leg, 40 unbroken right leg. That's the most unbroken pistols I've ever done on a single leg.
Legs are smoked today
Snatch complex 120#
Squat 185 x 8 x 4
Wall ball solo 75reps in 15s and 10s
100 sit ups
