    If anybody is in need of a cat, there was a kitten at the brewery door this morning. There was a bowl of water at the door, so I assume the folks over there know about the kitten, but it was screaming its head off, so I gave it some pulled pork which it ate very quickly. Hopefully somebody out there could take him/her and offer a good home if it was dropped off.

    75 was my previous one rep max, so this was a pretty good PR for me. I ALMOST had 85 once, but no go this time around. next time!!
    And special thanks to Ron for helping with the spider situation this morning!

      I remember a similar scenario about a month ago in the locker room when we saw a bug crawl by and Mandee and I screamed; followed by my cry of desperation, “MANDEE WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?!?!”, and she replied, “Well…Carson’s here.”

        LOL It’s not often I get to come to the rescue!
        This morning was a whole other ball game though…I don’t think I could smush anything that size in flip-flops! Tennis shoes are definitely needed for things like today!

  8. Squats cure cancer says:

    The plan was to do a metcon today, but my allergies decided against it. Worked up to a 1rm back squat instead.

    Got 275 w/ 50# of chains and 325# w/o chains (10# PR)

  9. Ben says:

    My 1RM on shoulder press has been stuck @ 95lbs for six months or more, and today I was able to do a few reps at 100 and one rep at 105. So that’s a 10lb PR, although my 5 rep max was still 95.

  10. Josh M says:

    Great work Ben

    170lb x 5 / more auxiliary work when possible Jake. That was great….it gets us stronger.

  11. Jamie Flynt says:

    65-85-90-95. Wanted to try 100 but ran out of time. Way to go 4:30!
