Forgot to write on the board today! But yes, writing on the board is the best!
Hbbs: 100 10×2. Fast, focused on breathing while squatting like during a workout
Fsq: 90 10×2. Also fast, needed to take a reset breath for the last rep last set.
Wod: 30# db, 26kg bell 3 rounds plus 7. If this had been 4 rounds for time, I think I would have moved faster. Took some longish breaks because I was afraid of the leg hurt during the snatches. Should have pushed through. Kbs unbroken every round.

Looked like a total tool though because I got overheated in my leg warmers and ended up needing to go shirtless. New year, new me. Will be releasing a New Jabroni winter clothing line by the end of the month. Stay tuned.
Jeffersons 185x5ea x3
Stiff legged DL 135x6x3
Then the above mentioned fun times.
Would have been faster if I were shirtless and in leg warmers.
John Emmert says
3+16 snatches. 75# dumbell, 32kg KB.
Karina S says
1pm with WhitBrett
Back Squat 90lbs
Front Squat 80lbs
Partnered with the lovely Leslie. We were pretty efficient. Got the cue again to not go as low, need to actually remember for next time. Last two reps were hardish so may think on how much to go up next week.
3 rounds 6 snatches. 30lb dumbell 16kg kettlebell
First time snatching a dumbell and I think it's my new favorite movement. So fun. Really liked this workout. KB's all unbroken, snatches in sets of 4-6. Want to graduate to the heavier KB soon. Good exercise in controlling my heart rate and air intake. Entered an altered state right at the end where everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.
Cash out: carried a green kettle-bell around. went sledding.
P.S. it's 90's dance night at the bell house!
