NICE pic. Love it 🙁 Ick.
Hate that I am missing today’s WOD. See y’all Monday!
I love how you girls all have the same shorts on… just different colors! 🙂
In case any one ever needs some delicious paleo cookies, please see Robert!!! The cookies he made were fantastic!!!! THANKS Robert!!!
Hope everyone else is doing well….I miss the gym! Hope to see you guys sometime soon!
Thanks Katherine! I’m so glad you are enjoying them. Maybe after the zone challenge I will go into a cooking frenzy and bring a truck-load of goodies to the gym!
Robert: Dole out the recipe to those yummy cookies Katherine speaks of….my one block almond butter quinoa cookies were good warm, but after that, well, they weren’t as tasty anymore…but, def fulfilled my craving for sweets…..
These ARE NOT zone friendly. They’re paleo, but not within zone ratios. So, I would advise not having them around until after the challenge.
*not staying on my heels
Did this one over at Randolph this morning
Went back down to 315 a couple times to work on my form, I think I could have gone a little bit higher but im happy with a 15# PR
Missed you this morning. That WOD was a tough one! I would have much rather done heavy back squats!
Sorry Robert, I totally forgot about having to be at Randolph this morning but no worries I made it up this afternoon and it was terrible!!
Did a Garage Games WOD with Kevin & Justin this morning. Those two killed it!
2 rounds for time:
115 # ground to overhead anyway
10 1.5 pood KB swings
as rx’d for intermediate men, 18:50
Then about 3 1/2 hrs later: 100 squats for time: 2:04
I’m also trying out some nutritional stuff to gauge how I will feel at the games.
So if you travel to NYC and can’t figure why the foods no longer tasty, thanks this smuck.
165 – 175 – 185 – 190(1/2″ high) – 190(X)
then a few sets of box squats at 85#
Speaking of nutrition. Here is the link to the coffee article I was talking about at the lunch class yesterday. Lots of information for little ol’ coffee. What I took away from it is my diet isn’t shitty and I’m not sedentary so coffee isn’t hurting me.
125-125-125 –> low depth
125-125-130-135 –> solid form
205, 225, 245x, 245, 255, 265x, 265x
I feel like I have a lot more power than what is displayed by my numbers. I just can’t keep my form, balance, and depth from sucking-ass all at the same time.
205, 225x, 225, 235, 245, 255(PR), 275x
twenty pounds under PR
felt very weak in the bottom of the squat today. Fatigued might be a better word. Kevin did too.. maybe the heavy cleans yesterday weren’t a great idea before this one.
205, 225, 225, 225, 225, 235, 245 (pr)
125-145-145-145-125-125-125….worked on the Tate squat depth gauge drill???? anyhow it was a form workout for me, not a max back squat day.
Back is tight tight tight!
We are having an informal going away party for Rich Hall from the 7 am class. He’s headed to Kuwait in about a week for six-eight months to serve our Country. It’s going to start about 5:30 at Joe Ritch’s house this Sunday, Jan 31. Nothing fancy so please try to stop by even if it is just for a few minutes to wish Rich well.
Joe lives at 1600 West Point Dr. SE. If you go up Governors Dr. from Huntsville and turn left at the top of the mountain (Monte Sano blvd) Go about 1 mile and turn left into the neighborhood just past Burritt Museum. Stay to the right and drive until you can make the first left on West Point Dr-the house is the very first driveway on your left. There will be food and drinks of course.
Zone/Paleo food and drinks of course,right!?!? =o)
Sounds great. Gonna try to stop by!!
Also, any thoughts on a Zone/Paleo cookout for pre-game for Super Bowl Sunday next weekend??
For those of us that are ‘In the Zone’, this day could be the epitome of the words, ‘Zone Challenge’….Just an idea….
Joe and I also have some tickets this weekend for the UAH hockey games vrs Niagra. 7:05 Fri and 3pm on Sat. These guys are crossfitters and need our support. There are a few tickets left for Fri night and about 10-14 for Sat. Let me know if you want some-email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d like some Friday tickets if you have some left. Or the Saturday. You would be proud. Julian LOVES Hockey.
As far as today’s WOD’s.
Did the Garage Games 600m run thing:
135 ground to overhead x’s 10
20 situps (hands on head)
10 KBS 2pd
Then came in at lunch to do some squats.
got up to 365. Attempted 385 once and just wasn’t feeling it so I dumped the bar and called it a day at only 4 reps.
Saw a bunch of PR’s happnin at the lunch class!
Great job yall!
kevin you got em for Fri and Sat if you want.I just found out the Friday game is at 5:35. The Herr’
s (Craig , Avery and Grant) are going along with the Glasscocks and Joe Ritch and his wife. Should be fun!!
Loooooooong day, no squat way, so just went & worked Pose for a while…32 minutes of intervals, walk 50 strides (left foot count), fast pose 50…about 2-2.5 miles.
