    Suprised with my left shoulder today, felt great. Last Wednesday I thought I had screwed it up again when I attempted to kick up on the wall.

    I was hoping to come to class today but my back is already really sore from my workout yesterday…. looks like open gym for me.

    I have some unsolicited feedback on the new (new to me, at least) programming wrinkle we’ve seen recently with the long rests between rounds. I love it because it sucks and I hate it.

  6. Paul Pepe says:


    The rare day when I did not totally suck at something. Take it when I can get it. Like the programming Jake. The rest periods force max effort and fast recovery. No more coasting thru a chipper. Nice.

    Great programming no coasting in these workouts its all out effort and Jake will call you out if you’re going to light!

    First WOD in a cpl weeks…DL felt good but I think my HSPU were lacking

  12. Jason says:

    I like these WOD’s – 135-205/20 HSPU’s.

    Loving these WODs:)
    125-165/ 89 band HSPU. Liked doing the band HSPU–made me concentrate on “hollow rock” aspect of the HSPU.

    135-205#/46 strict

    Addition was an issue this morning but it made my results better than I would have thought to try so it was a helpful blunder. Took me until round 3 to figure out that I was at 195# instead of 175#. Increases were much smaller in rounds 4 and 5!

  17. WOD #2

    Max Effort Bench Press
    355x FAIL

    Weighted Pull ups 5×3
    Body Weight x3

    Max Rep 50% of Bench

    Also did powerlifting afterwards. Bench 125# (PR!) Thanks Casey for being my spotter and way to go on getting your PR too!

  19. Ben says:

    Max Bench Press 155lbs. A 20 lb PR, but short of my goal of 170.
