    Felt like I could have gone a little higher, but ran out of time. Thanks to Josh for help getting the bar moving straight up.

    Not that it probably affected me much, but my legs are completely wasted from Saturday’s 5k then WOD and clearing out food plots in the woods yesterday. Getting a massage later today to help out (I hope).

    Chick-Fil-A is giving away a free entree every Monday night in April from 5-7PM. Today: 8-pack chicken nuggets. There is no purchase required and its available at every Chic-Fil-A location in Huntsville/Madison.

    Can’t beat FREE 🙂 Those things are like crack to my kids.

      Thanks for sharing Katie…I heard about this last week, but didn’t know it was each Monday in April….SWEET!!

      The question is: Are the Fry Daddy’s & Peanut Oil Zone Friendly? 🙂

    I got hit for mandatory overtime today, which pisses me off because I was looking forward to this WOD.

    At the NASA gym.

    3-3-3-3-3 reps backsquat

    Today we did a light sandstorm workout…LT said we cancel when visibility gets below 200m, & we were at least 500m this afternoon… 😉
    7 rounds for time:
    200m run
    9 overhead squats @ 115#
    9 pullups

    I scaled to 75# & jumping pullups
    24:50 (lost a couple minutes first round or two, with confusion over places/boxes, etc, but it straightened itself out by round 3)

    Should have rested today. Exhausted from 6hrs of landscaping yesterday.

  8. Karen says:

    I GOT A MUSCLE UP TODAY!!!! (Then about 10 more to make sure it wasn’t a fluke!)

    Oh.. as a side note – snatch balance 65-75-85-95-105-115-125(ugly)

  10. Russell says:

    Way to go Karen!!!!

    Sounds like some of those drills and progressions paid off!

  11. tracey says:

    btw great article/rant on knee push ups. I TOTALLY AGREE. I prefer plop and plank, as to the peel off the floor method…peeling hurts my low back.

  12. LeshaS says:

    65 – 75 – 85 – 95 – 105 (x) – 105

  13. Katie says:

    I could NOT grip the bar for a snatch with shredded hands so I did 3×3 backsquat… 105-115-125PR

    It was great seeing your face Karen when u got that MU!

  14. Craig Herr says:

  15. Justin says:

    congrats Karen

    Had to miss WOD to attend a dinner, ugh!! Got off work at 415, so I took a very brisk 3 mile walk thru Research Park. Was HOT! I sweated like crazy, so felt like I got a little workout in. 😉 Looked really cute at dinner, haha–but glad I keep deodorant in one of my desk drawers!!

    Way to go Karen!!!

    Snatch balance practice with the class then:
    5/3/1 Back Squat: 175(5)-190(5)box-210(7)box
    Couldn’t get depth on the regular back squats so used a the flat bench for box squats. Technically half squats because I wasn’t below parallel.

  19. Slade White says:

    This one just didn’t go well at all.

    I made it up to about 95 lbs and started falling. I think the problem with all of my overhead squats is shoulder strength and flexibility. I just can’t seem to keep it in the correct spot overhead.
