  1. Great quote from Colin Powell on today’s main site WOD posting:

    “When we are debating an issue, loyalty means giving me your honest opinion, whether you think I’ll like it or not. Disagreement, at this stage, stimulates me. But once a decision has been made, the debate ends. From that point on, loyalty means executing the decision as if it were your own.”

    This is an important tenet of military leadership, but I think it also applies to much more.

  2. I love the intensity on this picture. Beyond that, I like the glow of the lone orange snatchtastical shoe in the background.

    My max on snatch was 51 lbs. I did 56, but I just didn’t feel like it looked anywhere near legit, so I’m not going to count it. David gave me a lot of pointers that helped out. I lowered the weight and worked on form, near the end it resembled sort of a retarded mimey snatch. which was better than where it started, so I felt good about it.

    I got 75#s on clean and jerk.

    Can’t even remember what my points were this morning.

    Watched Jakub PR on snatch. Very cool. Also, loved the noise the barbell made when it hit the ground after he did it.

  3. Max on snatch was 51# and 75# on clean and jerk. David gave me some good pointers on the clean and jerk. Hoping to try for more wt next time.

    Completed 3 rounds and 23 reps for the AMRAP. Did gold with 55# squat clean. Total points: 275

    Good job Megan on getting on leader board with DU!! Awesome you did it during the workout! How many did you get again?

  4. Snatch: 145
    C&J: 215 (nearly had 225 clean)
    2 rounds as Rx
    Total 444

    Getting really sore after two heavy lift days.

  5. I want to hear more stories of people running to the leaderboard to update it during a WOD. Way to go, Megan! I’m sure Brittany will be right on your heels again…probably this afternoon.

    BTW, Zan’s gonna have to come back strong to stay ahead of Erin A. on pullups. They’re just 1 apart.

  6. Snatch = 145
    Squat Clean & Jerk = 165

    10 min AMRAP = 4 rounds complete + 2 reps

    So, my final score was 145 + 165 + 170reps = 480

    I PR’d on snatch by 25 pounds today. Very happy about that!

  7. Snatch = 130
    C&J = 155
    AMRAP: 3 rnds + 6 clean + 7 pullups
    Total: 424 rx’d

    Starting to get the feel for snatch. No, there really isn’t a better way to say that.

  8. Today I did the 10 minute AMRAP with different movements to not hurt myself. I did 24 in box jumps 6 reps.12 situps. And 50 single jump ropes. I got 6 rounds plus 4 situps. Thanks to Jeff for helping me with DU’s I finally did a few with a couple of singles inbetween. When my shoulder gets better I’d like to get in on that pullup competition (: Great job 6:15!!

  9. So much hard work tonight that it’s difficult to mention just a couple, but Brandon and Katie really pushed it. I think were the WOD measured in kilos that Brandon’s score would have won for the day. Katie did 24″ box jumps in her WOD and blazed through more than 6 rounds.

    Was good to introduce so many people to the Olympic lifts. It was certainly a crash course, but hopefully by going light and starting with the PVC pipe you feel at least more competent at the snatch and C&J than when you woke up this morning. At least, that was my intent.

  10. Snatch-80#

    For the 10min AMRAP: 2 rounds and 34 reps

    Total: 303

    Not sure why I’m struggling with those DUs now. That used to be one of my stronger points. Time to get in more practice!
