    Nice link!!
    Here’s a link that one of the guys that commented on her post added.

    Also, I heard the last paragraph of this on the radio, and just had to find it. This guy’s blog posts the link and writes the quote down below the you tube link for it. Good Stuff!!

    Probably could have gone a little heavier on the sets of 10 and 30. First deadlift PR since September.

    Bummed I’m sick, I was really looking forward to DL’s today. Hopefully this 24 hour thing is almost through running its course.

    I like the failure article. Too many times in the gym I’ve seen people not push themselves with one more rep or adding 5 more pounds because of not wanting to “fail”. If you never push yourself to the limit and then beyond, how will you ever know your real potential?

    315-245-335-205-275-165 = 1450

    First time maxing on DL in over 7 months. Form is crap again. rolling onto ball of my foot to try to engage quads instead of letting hammy’s do the work. Another movement to work on…

    315-225-335-225(14)185(6)-315-185 = 1600 or 1560 however you look at it.

    First time trying to find a 1 rep max and I think I found it. Tried to get 350 on the third round but couldn’t keep my form locked so dropped back down to 315. I’ve got a lot of work to do on keeping my chest up and leading with it rather than with my butt.

    Trying this a diff. way, since the site didn’t like these links, and wouldn’t post my comment.

    I like the article too!

    Here’s a link that one of the guys that commented on her post added.

    Fail. Absolutely true in Crossfit and life. You have to fail to progress. Kids do it instinctively. They don’t know how to do anything and so they take new challenges with fervor. Many grown ups have forgotten how to take risks, to push their limits. They become comfortable with what they’ve learned to do in life. Many live glorifying their past accomplishments and yet live in fear that they will never achieve greatness again. Most of the adult population does not like to take risks. Crossfitters do.

    Crossfit teaches me to be more bold. It teaches me that hard work is paramount to success, that rewards do not come without risk, and that losing is a daily part of life.

    Justin looked very strong today.


    Have not deadlifted in about 4 months-50lb under pr-picked weights that I could do with solid form. Did the 205 for 30 unbroken so maybe I could have bumped the rep weights up 10 or 20 lbs but it is always easier to say that when I am done with the wod.

    455-365-505-275-525(PR)-225 = 2350

    First time with this WOD. Missed that last time it came up. I love how the intermittent “met-cons” increase blood flow to the muscles and open up the lungs. Made the Max efforts much less painful and stronger.

    Big thanks to Tracey and Patrick for the needed yelling. Form getting better on the lower weight stuff…..still complete crap on the heavy lifts

    Fran today…8:43 w/75# and blue band after the first 5 pullups.

  11. Mandee Miller says:

    225 – 155 – 225 – 125 – 225 – 95 = 1050

  12. Ron Wood says:

    315-250-325-225-315 = 1635

  13. Katie says:

    185-165-205(pr)-135-190-115 = 995

    Should have gone a little heavier on the 20 round and 30 round. I was happy to get the 265 though! Not a PR, but form was solid! (My 290 pr was U.G.L.Y. form) My PR with good form was 245, so it felt like an accomplishment.

  16. LeshaS says:

    270 (pr) – 155 – 215 – 125 – 215 – 95 = 1075
