    Damn. Nice work.

    62 reps for me. I really felt this one. Had basically my entire right arm covered in protective equipment to just survive 7 minutes.

    Now I’m going to avoid front racks and any snatch grip movements until my wrist heals.

    And here I am perfectly content with my 81 (sigh).... unbroken thrusters but C2B just wore me out.

    Any Atlanta crossfitters?

    I’m in town for a conference and debating doing a drop in. But I’ve never dropped in anywhere before.

    I went to the NE Regional in 2013 as an alternate for our team. Didn’t get to compete but was able to take it all in as a spectator.

    I’d recommend it as a spectator. At our Regional there was a tailgating atmosphere, with a lot of vendors pedaling craft beer, healthy snacks, excercise equipment, etc. It was fun.

    It comes back fairly quickly, ever since joining the gym close to my house I’ve been going 4+ times a week, my cardio and strength have been climbing very steadily, just got to go

    If his box is anything like mine the amount of shaved reps would be phenomenal.

    Tried to replicate Linda this morning, with lighter weight from the regionals. 10-9-8 down to 1 of:
    Deadlift 275
    Bench 185
    Clean 135

    The transition from clean to deadlift with my heart rate up so high was the worst part. Finished at 21:53

    The rep shaving is getting laughable at my box at this point.

    We did like a half murph practice without the run today. We have a guy who's going to Madison and he did it in like 9:49 and somehow like half the guys at the box managed to go in the low 10s.

    Did a fun one today. Wish I had been full strength but I ran 6.5 miles this morning so my legs were tired. I probably could have knocked off another 30 seconds off my time.

    "Boat Race"
    Three Rounds
    500 meter run
    400 meter run
    3 minute rest between rounds

    Got it in 17:29

    Same here. Went hard for three months last year then took 6 off. Finishing week 4 now and am really starting to feel the gains.

    This week I’ll go 6 days. Not sure if I’m overdoing it or not, but I have the energy so I’m going for it. Plan to do 6 days for 6 weeks.

    And excited to be here. Don’t want to let up or quit this time.

    Feeling good 1 month in. Diet has been point too.

    My goal is abs by July 4th next year. Been 15 plus years since I’ve had them. At 37 I feel like this is going to be a challenge, but I know I can do it.

    I've been going regularly the past couple months. I've really been working on pacing myself during workouts and not just going out too hard/fast and dieing. I think these past two or three weeks have been about the best string of workouts I've had. I've also upped my carbs pre workout and have started taking creatine so I'm sure that has helped too.

    Ran a mile without stopping today. Doesn’t sound like much but it was big accomplishment for me. Too many years of cigarettes and alcohol without exercise have me way behind. Good workout today though

    1 mile run
    60 squats
    50 sit ups
    40 kettle bell swings
    30 burpees
    20 weighted lunges.

    Have always enjoyed watching the games but after starting doing crossfit last november really have a new appreciation for how incredible all these guys and girls are. Plus Whitney Gelin goes to our crossfit so really excited to watch her, even if she has no real chance in being super competitive.

    Almost feel bad for the guy from my box. Getting exposed a bit on the first workout. I think he went the last 3 minutes of the time cap without pulling off a squat clean.

    The guy that won the marathon row with an average time under 2 mins per 500m is easily the most impressive thing I have ever seen/heard related to CrossFit. Unreal.

    Well boys, first CrossFit injury after 4 years.

    4th and final set of hang power cleans (sets of 5), built up to 165, and on the very last rep sprained my MCL. Knee buckled and I couldn’t get the weight away from me quick enough. That was pure agony in the immediate aftermath.

    I’m looking to change up my workout and thought I’d give CrossFit a try. I want to do it at home, but all I have is a squat rack, pull up bar, and barbells. Is this doable? Is there a site that gives me WODs for people with only barbells?

    Thanks.
