Yes, Coach JB can lift many times her bodyweight, but she can also do an elite-level CrossFit Face. More photos from Saturday’s Subway Series event are up on our Flickr account!
REGISTER NOW FOR STARTING STRENGTH PROGRAM
The Starting Strength program is an opportunity to spend 8 weeks honing your technique and increasing your capacity at the most fundamental strength movements: Back Squat, Overhead Press, Bench Press and Deadlift. This small group format of 90 minute sessions offers one-on-one guidance, great camaraderie, and a simple roster of movements allowing you time to correct errors and challenge your limits.
Whether you are brand-new to lifting, someone with experience who has struggled to surpass a plateau, or just looking to try something different, by taking the time to focus exclusively on the lifts that support almost ever other activity you do inside (and outside) the gym, you will gain confidence and enhance your performance.

8 a.m. doing Wednesday’s work w/Lauren. Christina and I were the only two people doing Wednesday. You know what they say: the couple that Crossfits together is… too tired to argue about dinner plans together?
Aaaaanyway, Tempo BSQ: 225x6x3. Extended that second at the top there quite a bit by the end but the better form was a welcome tradeoff.
Metcon: 11:58, Rx’ed. Wall balls 30-20-15-15, couple no-reps in the last two sets and too much rest. Blew through the row in 3:01 then lost time ripping my lifters off in order to slog through the burpees in socks.
Signed up for Starting Strength, finally! Excited! Nervous! Etc!
AWESOME! You’re gonna lift aaaallll the weight!
Jaime C says
7am, Monday’s work with Lauren
Tempo Press- 52#. Sad I missed last week’s work on this, but they felt better than expected!
Stiff-Legged Deadlift: 95#
WOD: 5:35, 52#
Overhead squats were a struggle today!
I was trying to do these all unbroken, but by the second round on my LAST rep I kept missing and dropping the bar! Then managed to get 21 unbroken on my last round. Crazy how much of a difference just LOOKING UP makes.

Yesterdays programming @6:30p group class
SLDL: 185x6x3 4” deficit
5:37 as rxd
Goal was to do everything unbroken which I did. Those last 21 squats were tough and boy did it sting after I was done.
Charles Smith says
10 AM with Jess doing Wednesday’s work.
a few warmups and then 3x6x145# for the squat.
Good jump from 135# two weeks ago.
Metcon RX in 10:54.
Kept the row between 1000/1200 cals/hour and
did the burpees unbroken. A little Fran coughy.
James A says
6am with Lauren for Wednesday
BSQ: 255, 245×2 | 255 felt too heavy for this early in the morning, so I backed off
WOD: 9:30 Rx
Wall balls unbroken
Erg just stayed above 1,000
Dan L says
Made up Monday’s WOD
Press – 120x6x3 – moved pretty well
DL – 215x6x3 – no problems there
Metcon in 3:48 Rx’d – T2B fell off more than I would have liked, but felt pretty good about this overall
Rob Underwood says
Major props to Kharpz for finally – after 5 years – acquiescing and playing Phish for me.
Sadly, in a cruel twist of fate, the Spotify Gods chose to play the studio version of “The Line”, which is easily in the bottom 10% of Phish tunes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyQC6aRGKCA). But alas, sweet vindication and major props to Katie! (Whitney was very clear that it would be one song only, do note).
205 x 6 x 3 on tempo squats. More in the tank there.
16:15 on the WOD. Did 16lbs on the wall ball and mixed it up between 9′ and 10′
Here’s to the Phish!
Wednesday’s work out at 7:30 group class.
BSQ at 105, Katie reminded me to be more explosive as I move up, which feels challenging, but will try to remember it for next week! Fun times working with Sasha today!
Sadly no clue on the timing of that metcon, I totally lost all sense of time and space after those 40 burpees 😀 But I made it out alive which was the important thing! 🙂

Yesterday solo session doing class programming.
-press felt appropriate, DL’s probably could have gone heavier.
-TTB in 3 sets each round, all OHS unbroken. Didn’t feel dead after this so could have pushed it further. I have a hard time doing this when training solo though.
-last 2 sets with a belt. felt tough today even though this was 10# lighter than last week’s 8RM
80 wall balls (30-15-12-12-11)
60 cals, erg (4:08)
Ring Thing Muscle Ups: 3×5
GHD Situps: 3×10
Muscle Up Attempts………………..
and…FINALLY A MUSCLE UP!
Pretty happy about this! Now to repeat it. Thanks to the hubby who has coached me through my practice the last couple of weeks and has had more confidence in me than I have had.
Also, the Yankees won! Good night overall!
SARAH C says
JESS!! A MUSCLEUP?!?!?!? THAT WAS TOO CASUAL THE WAY YOU SLIPPED THAT IN THERE! CONGRATS GIRL!!!!
