  • I see someone else is hitting the refresh button 😉
    So, thoughts for today: Will you be armed with will and determination, or skill and its frustration?

  • Kurt

    Missed posting it on yesterday’s page so:
    Cindy- 11 rounds + 5 pull ups (benchmark)
    Since it was my first time doing it, I focused more on keeping good form than on speed. I noticed that the last two sets really fell apart, when I could only do 2 or 3 push-ups at a time. Burning out on the push ups and breaking rhythm really kills your time. Any advice on increasing my ability to keep to solid, good form sets of 10 above my current level of only 4 in a row? Just grease the groove?
    Thanks to the members of the first evening group who hung around to cheer on the second heat. Also, having Adam stay and beat me in his SECOND cindy in less than a hour is what you might call…motivating. That or downright impressive. Maybe both. Good job, man.

  • Robzilla

    Some people like to break up the push-ups from the very beginning, like sets of 5/5. This seems to help with eventual wear and tear during the WOD. However, the key to getting more push-ups unbroken is to do more push-ups. We can go over form the next time you’re in, if you’d like.

  • Jeff

    Here’s an article on the woman who is closing in on the record for having undergone the most plastic surgeries.
    “Oh baby you…got what I nee-eed, but you say he’s just a friend, but you say he’s just a friend…”

  • jacinto

    I’ll be there on sat.
    good job on cindy you getting better and better.

  • Brett_nyc

    Keith, I think we all know by now that instead of bench presses, the baby should be doing deadlifts, squats, and presses as they are far more effective at building functional strength.

  • xuan mai

    Grace – 62#, 9:50
    Good job to the morning crew!

  • Jack Bauer

    The look on the father’s face is priceless-really sells the picture. But in my opinion, that baby ain’t shit until he can do some burpees for time. And with his height, he should be killing some tabata pushups and squats! That’s just me.
    Ewen to answer your question, I’d rather be armed with determination and will. Skill can come in time and frustration is a part of perfecting them. But repetition can fix that. There are no exercises that can imbibed a man with the will to succeed-either has it, or he doesn’t.

    Scroll down to “Ryan Seacrest.”
    Should the Box offer this service to some of our NYC celebrities?

  • martin

    11:27 @ 95lbs
    Thanks to the lunch crew for pushing me and thanks again to Keith for making me throw another 20lbs on the bar. It’s always nice to realize that I underestimate myself!

  • Kevin

    BW 164
    10:51 as rx’d 135lbs
    Squat cleans took a lot of energy and my jerks leave much to be desired. Sort of a push press thruster thing going on at times. Must work on these!! Nice work morning crew and thanks for the tips Ethan. You killed it this morning!

  • Jack Bauer

    Hell yeah-I’m an actor! When I make it I want the same deal that Petranek Fitness is giving to Seacrest! Thanks Dan def.

  • Hi crossfitnyc
    I am a crossfitter…not sure if that is the term..and I am NYC for some work. It is really short notice but I figured I would ask. Any chance I could drop by for Grace tonight at 8:15pm? I e-mailed info@crossfitnyc.com and read the faq’s.

  • Brett_nyc

    8:20 as rx’d. full squats. 135lbs.

  • Justin

    Brett, how did you partition? Just do as many as you can? 10-10-10, 5×6, etc?

  • Matt
    Come on in. Earlier is better, but 8’15 is okay if that’s the only time you can make it.

  • mc

    First attempt at Grace:
    10:48 w/ 95lbs

  • Chris

    check out the rest of the “warning signs”, hilarious:)

  • Brett_nyc

    Justin, tried to do 5’s but quickly slipped to 3’s. This one will get you huffing and puffing for sure.

  • Hari

    6:41 Sub 105 lb Power Cleans (PR)

  • Justin

    Yeah… Started out w/ 6 then 5. Quickly devolved to sets of 1-2. 10:50 as R’xd.

  • As Rx’d w/half squat cleans, 14 power cleans, and 1 split clean (and a mix of split and power jerks) in 11:37. I used this more as practice C&J’ing than a WOD, was still freaking hard, especially when I weighed in at 148 today. I had ~4lbs of sweat on me at the end.

  • Chris

    hang clean – push jerk (60lb) – 4:34
    1 minute of jump squats – 26

  • Robzilla

    Power Cleans with 115#s I think this is a PR.

  • michelle

    rob-awesome! see i told u! 🙂
