when i saw a saturday class i was so nervous it was a kipping pull up class — my only goal in life is to get a pull up before the next time that is offered. at the rate i'm going hopefully the class won't be offered until next year.
7 AM with El Jefe
Did 3×5 HBBSQ since I missed Wednesday's exposure. 170x5x3, and I need to be careful not to pitch forward, which happened in my second set but otherwise these went well.
WOD: took out the burpees, but did box jump-overs on a 24" box (one of the new-fangled ones — felt a little unstable at first but I got used to it). 10:18. I…might actually miss burpees? Not really, I just miss being able to do them.
I used to dread the 24" box but this time it was fine! Maybe it's because I've been using box jumps as a substitute movement so often in the last couple of months.
6am. FSQ @ 210x3x3. Everything moved well. A little tight from yesterday's extra nugget of fitness (credit to MattyChm for that saying) courtesy of Fox. Metcon: 9:27 Rx+ (added a jump over). The jump over seems easier since you don't need to hit full extension at the top.
6am with David
Front Squats at 200#. These felt very light and moved quickly which is strange because today is my fourth day in a row at the gym and I was feeling tight from yesterday. Might consider a 10# jump next week.
WOD in 10:57. The runs felt fine. The burpees were of the standard variety, no jump overs.
DIY cash out of butterfly kips which are starting to get more consistent and I should probably just man up and do them in a WOD one of these days.
Lordy, Brad. That's fast. You are a freaking burpee machine.
6am with David
FSQ @ 155 x 3 x 3. Easy and light. Keep feeling tempted to make bigger jumps but know the best for my back is to keep to my plan and slowly ease back in
WOD in 11:23 Rx. BK was a blur of motion next to my relative standing still. Thought for sure I would eat it on at least one box jump but they all moved well. Burpees felt a little tight in the kick back.
DIY Cash out – worked on my kipping pull-ups with some good advice on the kip motion from Matty to prevent me from looking like a flopping fish
I have a Cazadoritis today.

Public service announcement: 50% almost everything in the store at the Reebok Union Square through this Sunday. Got 3 sports bras for $48. Leggings are also on sale!
10am class with McD and Noah
I was away all week in Maryland for work so I left early this morning and wound up going straight to the box which worked out well even after 4 hours on my motorcycle. What I didn't think of was the hand fatigue that beat me up a bit.
Did Thursday's work and worked up to 85kg on the snatch then did some snatch pulls at 100kg? I threw on 2 10# weights over the top and just went with with
Snatch balances at 80 and 90kg
Did two rounds of the cash out with a green then orange bell. I missed CFSBK this week!

Made it to OG to get in this week's backsquats.
After moving really slowly through three rounds of SWU1 and feeling pretty terrible overall, all three sets ended up moving surprisingly well!
Did Monday's WOD:
12-9-6-3 pull-ups, thrusters 47#
Took a lot of rest with the pull-ups. Could have gone heavier with the thrusters, but it's a miracle I made it to the gym in the first place, so I'm not complaining.
Press: 198×3, 209×2, 220×1
Bench: 275×5, 285×5, 295×5, 305×5
Chinese rows: 245x5x4
Samir Chopra says
Front squats: 220x3x3
WOD Rxd: 12:43
