Los Angeles County Fire Fighter Specialist Arnaldo “Arnie” Quinones, 34, was killed in the line of duty on Sunday, August 30, 2009 during the Station Fire. His emergency response vehicle went over the side of the road and fell 800 feet into a steep canyon during fire suppression activities protecting Camp 16 outside the City of Palmdale, CA. He is survived by his wife Lori and daughter Sophia Grace, born three weeks after his death.

A fund for Arnie’s family has been established by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

    These women are impressing the hell out of me. Karen and Jordan both did well!!! Not sure how many rounds they got but wow…..tough WOD!!!!

  6. Robert S. says:

    Box Squat 3-3-3-3-3 reps
    Bench Press 3-3-3-3-3 reps

    Squat- 205-205-205-205-205
    Bench- 185-195-205-210-185

    Haven’t done bench press in some time. Don’t really remember a 3rm, but I’m certain that 205 & 210 are pr’s. The last time we did the CFT with Bench, Clean, and OHS My 1rm on bench was 205.

    Keep up the fight in Jax!!!!!!

      I’m always amazed how the bench will go up without working it. I’d assume once we get past that 1.5x BW mark the gains will come slower. But… who knows.

    We have Kevin Lowe and Russell competing in individual men’s. We have Karen Hubbard competing in individual women’s and then we have an affiliate team with Jake, Dennis, Kerri W, Mandee, Katie G, and Justin and maybe Josh too??? I am sleep deprived and can’t think correctly…someone can correct me if they want to 🙂

    We also have some guys and gals from CrossFit Impluse in Madison: Jeff B (the owner) and Jordan Pepe.

    In addition, many of you know Brandon Phillips, Sean and Mariah Provost, and Shana Alverson from the Atlanta area.

    The live scoring link is down but there continue to be facebook updates so check on there if you are interested!

    Second event AMRAP in 12 min:
    Rich F from our sectional got 11+ and is in 1st. Russell got 10+ and Kevin got 7+. Waiting to see ranking. Haven’t heard about others.

    • Patrick says:

      Wow. That’s stiff competition. I really thought Russell would win the HSPU/triplet event.
      Row/Burpees couplet to get into the top 4.

      You can do it! (in the cajun accent from Waterboy)

    “Nutts” hero WOD: 29:00

    Scaled: 24″ box (not have a 30″)
    400 single unders

    didn’t want to turn this into a long DU practice session (tuck jumps are too easy)
