    85-95-105-115 (x)-115(PR)-95-75

    In a bit of a hurry because I had to get home to Campbell so I kind of wonder if I could have gotten 120 or 125 with proper rest. Oh well, maybe next time!!

  2. Larry Lowe says:


    Did full cleans until failed on front squat @175. Power cleans after that. I power cleaned 195, but failed the jerk.

  3. Jakub Sikorski says:

    I was able to get the 220 up I just couldn’t lock the weight over my head. I am stoked…my previous PR was 185 so today was a huge improvement for me.

    185-205-225-235x-235x-235x-235x i pretty much suck at life after this… oh well, there’s always tomorrow to fail at something else.

  5. Katie says:


    Hmm Josh maybe our cheat weekend has something to do with our pattern of fails today!

    Bummed I didn’t PR today but I hit my last PR at 105 easily today where last time it was rough.

  6. Karen says:

    At the beach so did 100 burpees for time 8:04. Getting better! Last time was 8:45.

    Larry, I need some help with hotel workouts (not the Hotel Crossfit Games, just realistic ones for now. I will have to train for the Hotel Crossfit Games!) I will be out of town for 2 weeks and need workouts to do. 100 burpees gets old quick!

    Time to hit the beach! 🙂

    105-115-135-145-155-165X-165X first class at CFH was great! Gotta work on my execution on the clean.

    PR on Clean 265
    PR on Jerk 255

    85 – 95- 105 – 115 (f) – 115 (f) – 95 – 95
    Went back to 95 to work on form because I REALLY need to work on the clean.

  11. Ashley says:

    55- 65- 70- 75- 80- 85(x)- 75. I was pretty retarded when I got to 85. The moves take too much thinking to get the form which takes away my momentum. I’m still going to rock the “I’m new!” phrase as my excuse!

  12. Zak says:

    The 230 was just a muscle/power clean and the jerk was a push press. On the first 235 attempt I failed to get my left arm and wrist under the bar. On the second, I did a sloppy clean and failed on the jerk.

  13. Russ says:

    (95, 115, 125, 135, 145, 155, 160) Form still needs refining. Loss of stability as weight increased. Thanks for the tips Josh.

  14. Katherine Berger says:

    Ashley, you did awesome! 80 for a first-timer is pretty damn good. Be proud and next time you can hit 100 and stop rocking the “new” excuse!

  15. joshg says:

    Everyone, great job yesterday. No matter if you matched PR, set a new one it was great to see so many motivated athletes giving quality effort. I want to encourage you all to putting more emphasis on skill work into your warm-ups. Don’t just wait around for Russell, Kat or I to get you started. You have all demonstrated a level of self- motivation by becoming avid crossfitters, so motivate yourself to get better. Many of the movements we do are perishable skills so practice them often. Just remember, when you practice any movement, quality over quantity.

    Was out of town this weekend, but had access to a gym Saturday. Did “Cindy”- 12 rounds. Had a little beer and carb loading Friday, and could feel it. Still felt good to do something.
