    first time to do this one but pretty excited because a month ago, 195 was my one rep max!

  3. Jakub Sikorski says:

    I had to reduce the weight to focus more on my form.

    Many looked /felt really good- a few were not so pretty.

    Tried what should have been a normal 5×5 weight for me during the morning class and felt like It was the first time I’d ever done a deadlift…. trained a client for about an hour and did this later:


    I talked to Kevin about this and noted that when I don’t work out for a long time, I get faster and weaker, while if he doesn’t workout for a while, he gets slower and stronger. Funny how we both arrive at a comparable level of fitness and yet come from such obviously different genetic and physical backgrounds.

    A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped us move into the new facility today! And Katherine, who stayed home with the baby, heard on the news that this was the hottest day of the year… I think I could tell.

    The Triathlon Gods seem to hate me.
    Torn tendon, avulsion fracture and complex laceration to the plantar surface left foot. Took about an hour to dig all the crap out of it using the C-arm (an Xray device to help you find crap that you can’t see). Out of about 1,000 people racing, I’m the one to find the sharp rock at the swim finish.
    So I’m leaving blood trails around the house because the damn thing won’t stop bleeding and I’m back in the funky black post op shoe for some unknown amount of time.
    All and all, my first Triathlon experience was a huge suckfest.
    If any of yall were there I was the one swimming in flowery board shorts and riding a mountain bike.

    All things considered, deadlifts and moving CFHSV sounds great.

  11. Russell says:

    Don’t I always talk about how that endurance crap is bad for you?

  12. Katherine Berger says:

    Wow Patrick, you may, in fact, be even more accident prone than I am….and that’s saying something! Hope it’s better soon!

  13. Hudson Slater says:

    That’s not very fair. When I don’t work out i get weaker and slower.

  14. Patrick says:

    Russell your right, endurance training is not going to be my bag. But I do want to get better at running. Maybe sometime in 2010… I was hoping to be able to compete in the Oktoberfest Games, looks like I pissed that one up a rope.
    Katherine, I’ll happily cede the “accident prone” title back.

    By the way, excellent article in the Journal about Gym Jones v. CrossFit

  15. Michael says:

    215, 225, 235, 245, 255

    Felt good so I decided to get a deadlift PR and pulled 285 pretty easy after the workout.

    I think I’m now tied with the top CFHSV womens deadlift? It’s something.

    300 here I come.
