    -I was frustrating Russell and Josh b/c not “jumping” to full hip extension. I tried to a few times but my foot didn’t like all the extra ROM…so short house cleans they were.

    SMOKER of a WOD and (to me) more of a mental than physical task. Over riding the brain that is screaming “let go of the bar and rest” was difficult.

    This one was more a of a strength workout for me. Kept catching the bar with my hands instead of my chest (elbows up). This really started to strain my arms. Once I got past the fear of slamming the bar into my throat, I was able to catch it better and the exercise was less painful. Squat still needs work. Was able to like three at a time through out the workout, which surprised me. I was not able to do this well on Monday.

    3 rounds in 35 minutes. Not really sure what was wrong with me today.

    Justin I have found when I am not operating near 100% usually it is a good indication of illness of some kind. Crossfit has a great way of revealing when your not working at your normal workload. At least works for me.

    The 8:30 class did AMRAP in 20 min. I got 4 plus 10 pushups. ( i think)
    20lb MB squat cleans 30x
    & push ups 30x …. This was a good learning tool for me. As I get tired, the techinique improves. I tend to over think.

    GREAT article about women bulking up. I can’t tell you how many times I hear women say no to Crossfit or strength training to avoid “looking bulky”, especially back in college.

    Woke up 5 minutes before the class started so I didn’t eat anything before this one, and it showed, I felt like crap.

    Just to let everyone know in case anyone else is interested. On Monday Im starting a 100 day burpee challenge. The way it works is on day 1 you complete 1 burpee, day 2 complete 2 burpees….day 100 complete 100 burpees. It would be great to have more people commit to it so that we can keep each other accountable. Other Crossfit Gyms have done this before and seen great results, so I thought we could give it a shot. Let me know what you think, thanks guys!!!

    ……f@*kin’ burpees……

  11. joe c says:

    29:34 scaled 95# . i’m in jake

  12. z says:

    23:19. Well done to those under 20 min.

  13. Robert S. says:

    Did this one at the NASA gym.

    27:10 scaled to 95#

  14. Russ says:

    30:36 Scaled to 75 lbs. jumping from heels and catching the bar low needs improvement. My pecks were “smoke-checked” after the 3rd round of pushups. No breakfast – felt slightly dizzy but still had enough energy to complete the workout. OOH RAH!

  15. tracey says:

    I’m sooo over the “bulking up ” issue. If it was that easy to be huge, then I’d be a freak!!!
    To ALL the wanna be “toned up” and terrified of gaining muscle size women out there, don’t flatter yourself….IT JUST WON’T HAPPEN! As my husband always says “Let them use the colored dumbells.” Surely the pink and purple colors will make them feel less bulky.

    Sorry to go off, but I deal with high maintence clients alot!
    To better life long health, Tracey

  16. Clint says:

    Rx 28:08

    definitely still feeling way weak but it’ll come round

  17. Zak says:

    3 rounds – 10:14
    Stopped at 3 rounds due to a PT test tomorrow morning.

  18. Brad says:

    18:44 I strongly agree with Kevin it was alot of mental on this workout telling yourself to get back on the bar. Either way it sucked but I hate thinking I could have pushed harder.

  19. Patrick says:

  20. Kerri says:

    As rx’ed (95#)-35 min cut-off
    Finished 4 rounds plus 7 reps of the squat cleans in the 5th round.
    I’m anxiously awaiting to see where the bruises show up tomorrow.
    After that WOD, I feel like tomorrow should be a rest day….AWFUL!!!

  21. J.D. says:

    Felt bad today, and can barely walk after all the thigh work this week so rested today. On call this weekend but gonna try to make class. And don’t forget to sign up for the Wounded Warrior 5k for Nov. 7th.

  22. Karen says:

    Couldn’t make it to class today. At home, 50 jumping air squats and 30 push ups, 5 rds, 21:05. It may not have been the WOD but it was better than nothing.

    Jake, I’m in on the burpee challenge!

  23. Katie says:
