    Looking forward to getting back in there. Hope flights are on time so I can be there for the 4pm class.

    Spent the weekend in IL with family. Worked out at CF Rockford on Friday morning but could not make it back Saturday morning. It is amazing how a town of 130K people (Rockford, IL) can support a thriving CF box with lots of classes and even more people than CF HSV. CF Rockford has been going for a few years and sent 3 people to the CF Games in CA. Tampa (many times larger than Rockford or Huntsville), where I came from has only one, not quite thriving, box. It really goes to show that CF boxes rely a lot on personalities and dedication of the founder. Russ or the guys at CF Rockford have to pour their souls into getting a good box running and develop the community. The “build it and they will come” really does not work for CF boxes. Programming, attention to your clients, facilities, family and financial sacrifices, etc all are required. We are lucky. The broken/empty links to CF boxes listed as affiliates in Tampa are a testament to the fact that you cannot simply hang a CF sign around your neck and make a quick buck — even with the best programming around.

    Like the fallen they honor, Hero wods never fail to be extra tough.

    1 round as Rx’d 20:12

    My body was pissed off at me for even showing up to work out today. This was the 6th day in a row without a break so I called it quits after the 1st round.

    Four police officers killed while drinking coffe in Washington. What is the world coming to. Keep their families in your prayers.

    24:17, As Rx’ed

    Thanks Hudson and Garth for sharing your DB’s with me.

  8. Karen says:

    2 rounds in 40 minutes @ 20lb DB snatch.

    I have difficulty squating. Add arms overhead and the difficulty increases. Add weight in a single arm and my body is just unable to move in the proper form. Keeping my weight in my heels without twisting just wasn’t in the cards for me. Had to get weight above head, then squat slowly. This one was just ugly.

  9. Garth says:

    2 rounds and 52 (halfway through left arm snatches). Good to work on snatches. I can either get a solid DB overhead or a proper squat. I cannot get both together very well. It is hard to put all the snatch pieces together.
